Learn the Differences Between Dermal Fillers and Wrinkle Relaxers

By: Our Team


Cosmetic injections like dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers are popular ways to reduce common signs of aging and enhance your facial features. Both treatments are safe, effective, and offer long-lasting results with minimal recovery time. However, it's important to understand how each product works so you can make a more informed decision about your care.

Discover your best look with the help of dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers at The Skin Lab. Call now to meet with registered nurse Taren Jarvis and receive a personalized evaluation in Owensboro, KY. We’ll help you decide which injections are the best for your anti-aging needs.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable products that contain hyaluronic acid (HA), similar to what is found in our bodies. Fillers add volume beneath the skin to reduce wrinkles from the inside out. They can also be used to plump up thin lips or replace lost facial volume in areas like the cheeks and temples. Results from dermal fillers are almost immediate, and they can last up to 1 – 2 years before needing to be re-injected.

How do fillers compare to wrinkle relaxers?

Wrinkle relaxers are products that contain a muscle-relaxing agent. These products work by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles to smooth over the overlying skin. Results from wrinkle relaxers are visible in as little as three days and can last up to four months with the right care. They are especially effective for deep forehead lines, Crow's feet around the eyes, and smile wrinkles above the mouth.

What is treatment like with cosmetic injections?

Dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers are in-office treatments in Owensboro, KY. During each session, the products are administered in small amounts until we believe the desired results are achieved. We may provide local anesthesia to minimize discomfort and make you feel at ease.

Each patient receives post-treatment instructions to minimize side effects like redness and swelling while ensuring the best possible outcomes.

Can you combine dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers?

Yes, you can incorporate dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers into one treatment session. This allows us to target multiple areas for more comprehensive and dramatic outcomes. Contour the mid-face and cheeks, add volume to the lips, and reduce stubborn forehead wrinkles in a single appointment.
