Tired of deep lines and wrinkles across your face? There are a number of non-surgical treatments that can reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, including neuromodulating injectables such as BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Jeuveau®. We are pleased to provide this treatment option to our patients in the Chesterton, IN area.


How Do Wrinkle Relaxers (Neuromodulators) Work?

Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau are prescription medications that are injected into targeted areas. The effect is to relax underlying facial muscles, specifically the muscles whose contractures cause the development of wrinkles. As these muscles relax, it provides a smoother and more youthful facial appearance.

Botox was the first FDA-approved neuromodulator administered in the USA. However, Jeuveau, Dysport, and Xeomin® are comparable and can be used interchangeably. Although patients may prefer a certain brand, the injection technique, effects, and duration are basically the same.


Conditions Treated

Wrinkle relaxers are most commonly used for the treatment of frown lines, also known as glabellar lines. It can also be an effective treatment for other wrinkles and fine lines that are caused by muscle contracture. 


Our Process

The first step in the treatment process is to have a consultation. This appointment is used to ensure that you are a good candidate for a safe and successful treatment.

For the injection itself, we may use a topical numbing cream to help prevent any discomfort. The wrinkle relaxer is carefully injected into the targeted treatment area through a thin needle, and the entire process usually takes no more than 10 to 20 minutes. 

At Glacial Sands OMS, we are always careful to avoid over-treating. Instead, we help our patients achieve beautiful, subtle, natural-looking results that meet all of their aesthetic objectives.
