What are BOTOX & Wrinkle Relaxers?

Wrinkle Relaxers are an effective facial rejuvenation treatment that consists of an FDA-approved botulinum toxin injection. When used in controlled doses administered by a trained professional, this non-surgical procedure can help soften wrinkles and relax the facial muscles that cause fine lines and unwanted wrinkles in your face.

Some of the common treatments that the BOTOX cosmetic treatments are used for include:

  • “11’s” (the lines between your eyebrows)
  • Bunny lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Dimpled chin
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Horizontal lines
  • Lip lines
  • Neck bands
  • Smile lines

At Absoulute Vitality, we have several choices of wrinkle relaxers that we offer our New Jersey patients in the form of BOTOX, Dysport, and Jeuveau.


Short for botulinum toxin, BOTOX (onabotulinum toxin A) is one of the most well-known wrinkle relaxers on the market. Since being released on the market in the early 90s, and then being FDA-approved for cosmetic use in 2002, BOTOX has become synonymous with wrinkle relaxer injections. Not only can it fill in wrinkles and fine lines (especially around the eyes and mouth), doctors have been using this product to treat involuntary eyelid twitching, muscle spasms, chronic migraines, incontinence, Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), and in some cases, has been able to help alleviate arthritis.

You should be able to notice the full effects of your BOTOX injections within about two weeks of your treatment and be able to enjoy them for two to six months, depending on how quickly your body naturally breaks down and absorbs the injectable. Patients who receive the treatment routinely tend to notice longer-lasting results after each additional injection.


Dysport (Abobotulinum toxin A) is very similar to BOTOX and can often be interchanged with its “cousin injectable”. It is considered to be “lighter” as it is made using different processing technology. Dysport does tend to work faster and has slightly greater longevity than BOTOX, but it does have its limitations on where it can be injected. Currently, it has only been FDA-approved to be used on the Glabella lines (the vertical lines between your eyebrows) and for relaxing the muscle spasticity in your neck and limbs. While it’s not always the case, clinical observations have shown that sites injected with Dysport tend to have fewer wrinkles than those treated with BOTOX.

It typically takes about two weeks to reach its peak effects, but can then last about five months post-treatment. Also, if you are allergic to bovine products, Dysport may not be best for you as it does contain cow proteins.


Jeuveau (sometimes called the new BOTOX or “NEWTOX”) uses the same active ingredient that was used in the original BOTOX formula and can be a better fit for certain types of facial wrinkles, particularly glabellar lines. It’s often considered to be a greater “starter” injectable for those who have never received botulinum toxin A injections before. Many of our Jeuveau patients can see results about a week following their treatment and it can last between three and four months.

To determine this, Dr. Kalika will ask you questions regarding your medical history and examine your face’s wrinkles and/or fine lines.

What to Expect on the Day of BOTOX & Wrinkle Relaxers

We are happy to provide complimentary Visia 3-D Skin Assessments during consultations by using top-of-the-line technology from the Canfield. Following your treatment, we will provide another scan to asses improvements. When you are ready for your BOTOX or Wrinkle Relaxer injection, you will begin by making yourself comfortable on our reclining chair. While many patients opt out, Dr. Kalika will offer you a topical numbing cream to make your experience less painful from the needle insertion. There are also additional options available to numb your skin through cold compresses or vibration anesthesia, which uses massage to reduce discomfort.

Once you are both ready to begin, Dr. Kalika will use a thin needle to inject tiny amounts of the selected toxin into your skin or muscles, depending on what is needed. The injections should only take a few moments per section, and the number of injections will be determined

The treatments will take about 15 – 20 minutes.

BOTOX & Wrinkle Relaxers Recovery

After your injections, you will be able to return to your normal activities, however, you can expect there to be some redness and potential swelling or even bruising. You should avoid any strenuous activities for the first 24 – 48 hours, as well as touch your face to avoid toxin migration. During this time period, you should also avoid drinking alcohol to prevent excessive bruising, sleeping on the treated areas, excessive heat or sun exposure, or any skin treatments (i.e. facials, exfoliating scrubs, massages). After the first day or so things should be back to normal, but your face will have a firmer, more youthful appearance.
