What is the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers are used to help block nerve signals that cause the face to move/tense and cause wrinkles. This results in a reduction of existing wrinkles and may also be used as a preventative means. Wrinkle relaxers last 3-6 months depending on the patient.
