Wrinkle Relaxers

Targets
Wrinkles, forehead lines, frown lines, lips, chin, marionette lines, jawline, neck lines, TMJ, excessive sweating.

Overview
Wrinkle Relaxers are cosmetic injections that are used for softening wrinkles and relaxing the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. We offer two types of wrinkle relaxers: Botox® and Dysport®. It typically takes 10 to 14 days for results to take full effect, with Dysport® typically starting a day or two earlier than Botox®. The treatment is quick and there is no downtime with this treatment. Results last about three to four months.

Treatment Plan
Treatments are typically spaced out every three to four months.

What To Expect
If it’s your first time receiving wrinkle relaxer treatment, you will have a consultation with the provider to assess your goals and develop a treatment plan. Should you choose to move ahead with receiving treatment, this can be done during the same visit. The treatment itself is quick and typically does not require topical anesthesia.

"I am somewhat of a beauty junkie, truth be told."

I’ve been getting facials for years and when a friend recommended Elinea, which I thought was strictly a MedSpa, I thought why not? I’ve been to a number of salons in the city and like to keep my options open. Monica did a hydrofacial for me which was truly one of the best immediate gratifications facially I can remember. …

"I am somewhat of a beauty junkie, truth be told."

I've been getting facials for years and when a friend recommended Elinea, which I thought was strictly a MedSpa, I thought why not? I've been to a number of salons in the city and like to keep my options open. Monica did a hydrofacial for me which was truly one of the best immediate gratifications facially I can remember. The next day, I looked seriously five years younger. My skin was taut, supple and super hydrated...many fine lines were minimized. I'm definitely going to get this treatment again. Monica knows her stuff.

"I am hooked. My skin was glowing, so smooth and continues to glow post-treatment."

After many months without a skin care treatment, I went in yesterday for my first dermaplane and hydrafacial experience yesterday based on a friends recommendation. Monica was my super esthetician and she is amazing. She is very knowledgeable about products and treatments. I had a bunch of skincare questions and Monica was really informative. I know there are other advanced procedures at Elinea such as Botox, injectables, etc but for me and for now, I am happy taking small steps in my journey to great skin. Elinea is a warm and beautiful new space in the Castro. I am booking my next skincare treatment now!

However, if your sensitivities are heightened, you can ask for topical anesthetic cream to applied as an optional pre-treatment.  This will extend the amount of time the session takes, as the anesthetic will need time to numb the treatment area.

The cost for your Botox treatment depends on the size and number of your treatment areas, and the number of Botox vials needed to complete the treatment.

On average, our Botox treatments run from $250 to $800.

There’s zero downtime after Botox! You can get back to your regular daily routine after your session.
