Wrinkle Relaxers, media attention and scare stories go hand in hand.
It is an easy, column filling win to see which celebs have gone too far, or in the esteemed opinion of certain social media outlets – need to have some maintenance done!
Knowing a little about what you are getting yourself into, the various pitfalls to avoid, and what to look for in a competent practitioner is a good start before considering whether to iron out some of life’s non laughter lines.
Here is a short guide to help you understand a little more about the process, and help you to spot bad practices that can ruin your new improved look.
Who, what, where…
Seems very obvious, but start by looking into these very important factors.
The professional competence and suitability of the person who does your injections is the most important factor. Going for a cheap, non-qualified person greatly increases your risk in many ways. Accountability is important in such unfortunate instances. You need to be confident that your practitioner is insured, well established and responsible! Or do you want someone who works on your face to be independent, unaccountable and having had an afternoon course in fillers and wrinkle relaxers?
With a cheap pop up style operation, in order to improve margins, cheap non-branded chemicals will almost certainly be used. This can lead to incorrect dosages and types of neuromodulator being applied to the incorrect parts of the body. The results can be predictably bad and unsightly. I love a bargain, but cost cutting on products going in your body is more than false economy-just plain dangerous. Wrinkle Relaxers are a common, relatively safe procedure-but you must have complete confidence in the origin and application of the product.
The environment they practice in can often be a good indicator as to the suitability of the option you have chosen. It should be clean, light with the appropriate facilities and steps taken for your aftercare. If these basics are not met- then run a mile!
After that research testimonials, ask to see previous patient pictures, diligence is the key here!

Tell me what you want, what you really, really,…..
Communication and establishing the customer’s requirement is a key overlooked part of the beauty process. Personal preferences, facial structure and end goal do vary greatly.
Any practitioner worth your custom should call upon their experience and work with you to achieve a healthy, natural enhancement that is right for you.
Try and come armed with examples of do’s and don’ts to guide the hand that is shaping you. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want.
You will be surprised at the results-and able to show it, not just stuck that way!
WHEN! It does, upon reflection, matter a bit!
If you want your forehead to wow at a particular occasion, it is important to note that effects are not instantaneous.
Don’t be worried if you don’t see the effects immediately, it typically takes from one to two weeks (three for some) for the effects to settle. Be patient, and plan your unveiling carefully.
Beam me up Scotty!
When done in the correct manner and setting, by the right people, Wrinkle Relaxers are the one of the most routine and effective beauty treatments on offer. Because of this, certain people believe that anyone can do it, sometimes unfortunately to their cost.
Bad Wrinkle Relaxers can leave you looking like MR Spock, and although hilarious to friends and family is not worth the risk of cutting corners or costs on something that is designed to improve your looks. No Wrinkle Relaxers are better than bad Wrinkle Relaxers!
It will be obvious to one and all if the provider has been “overly generous” in giving you the Wrinkle Relaxers you requested. Areas become hardened or frozen, eyebrows can rise and fall in the wrong places, but this should go away in all but the most extreme of cases.
The good news is that damage often is not permanent, but if you do experience any increase in pain, problems with your sight, or any unexpected side effect, be sure to consult your doctor.
