Injectables for Dynamic Wrinkles in Lakeway, TX

Wrinkles happen for two primary reasons: aging and muscle movement.

As we grow older, our bodies make less collagen, a structural protein that helps keep our skin tight and firm. This gradually leads to creases like nasolabial folds and volume loss in areas like our temples and lips.

Our first wrinkles, however, typically appear where our skin folds the most — between our brows, across our forehead and around our eyes. We call these dynamic wrinkles because they occur due to facial movements, like frowning, smiling and squinting.

Dynamic wrinkles are initially visible only when we express emotion. But after a lifetime of smiling and frowning, they become permanent imprints in our faces.

As you’ve likely noticed, wrinkles on the upper part of your face can make you appear angry or tired, even when you’re feeling your best. If you would like your skin to reflect how you feel inside, we offer two tried and true injectables used to diminish and prevent wrinkles in the upper face.

About BOTOX® Cosmetic

You’ve probably heard about BOTOX® Cosmetic. Its name is so often equated with wrinkle relaxing that it’s often used as the name of an entire category of injectables, even though it is technically the name of one brand. That’s because BOTOX® Cosmetic is the number one wrinkle relaxer on the market and the first FDA-approved product of its kind.

This famous injectable contains small doses of onabotulinumtoxinA, a neurotoxic protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. When injected into specific facial muscles, this toxin causes temporary paralysis. In other words, it keeps the muscles causing your wrinkles from moving, so the wrinkles cannot form.

While injecting bacteria-derived toxins into your body may sound concerning at first glance, a lot of research has gone into BOTOX® Cosmetic, and the product has been safely in use for over 20 years.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate to severe:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines

In addition, we can use BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to correct many other aesthetic concerns, including:

  • Bunny lines
  • Chin creases
  • Downturned mouth corners
  • Lipstick lines
  • Low Cupid’s bow

The Procedure

At Wink Medical Aesthetics, every treatment starts with an initial consultation. You will have the chance to learn what you can expect from this treatment, and we will create a plan to suit your specific needs, expectations and budget.

The procedure starts with your provider cleansing the treatment area and numbing it if you are concerned about needles or your comfort. Your provider then injects BOTOX® Cosmetic into multiple injection sites.

The number of units and injections you will need depends on the number and severity of your wrinkles. A typical session is over in about 15 to 20 minutes. There is no downtime, and you can go about your day as usual as soon as you leave our office.

The Results

The results from BOTOX® Cosmetic become noticeable within a week and reach maximum effect around two weeks. Your skin will appear smoother around the site of treatment. Because this product does not affect the movement of surrounding facial muscles, you will look like your natural self, only more youthful.

At Wink Medical Aesthetics, our goal is to get to know you and enhance your beauty your way. Wrinkle relaxers can be administered lightly to give you a more subtly refreshed appearance or more strongly to give you the “frozen” look that some patients prefer.

Whichever your preference, we do a thorough consultation to understand your desired look so that you may have the outcome you love. Request your consultation today.


How long do wrinkle relaxers last?

The results from wrinkle relaxers last three to five months for most people. You can maintain your results with touch-up treatments scheduled a few times per year.

Will my face look frozen after wrinkle relaxers?

Not when performed by skilled injectors! Wrinkle relaxer results depend a lot on the expertise and experience of your provider. Our aestheticians are well-known for having an “eye” for injectables and the skill to carry the treatments out seamlessly.

What should I avoid after treatment?

We recommend avoiding strenuous exercise and sun exposure in the first four to 24 hours after treatment. Exercising can cause the active ingredient to migrate to other parts of the face. It is also a good idea to avoid facial peels, lasers and waxing the area for two weeks.

How many injections will I receive?

Treatment with wrinkle relaxers needs to be customized according to patient needs and wants. Some people need more units than others. On average, patients receive five injections for frown lines, six for crow’s feet and five for forehead lines.

Will it hurt?

The needles used during a wrinkle relaxer treatment are super thin and nearly painless. Most clients feel only a pinch rather than pain during injections. If you are pain-sensitive, we can numb the treatment area with ice or numbing cream.

Can botulinum toxin injections prevent wrinkles?

Yes! When you start getting wrinkle relaxers as soon as you notice the first signs of aging, you can help prevent the formation of dynamic wrinkles as you grow older. In other words, anti-wrinkle injections can be a prophylactic measure.
