What are wrinkle relaxers? Botulinum toxin is a purified protein free of any live bacteria that works by interfering with ability of the targeted muscle to contract fully. Approved by the FDA in 2002, it is used to reduce the lines associated with facial expression with a duration averaging 3-4 months. What many patients don’t realize is that it is not an “all or nothing” effect; dosing can be tailored to the desired amount of wrinkle relaxation. Working with Dr. Contreras, you can trust you are receiving FDA-approved product, expertly placed injections, and exactly the number of units you pay for.
