Crows Feet + Brow Lift
Crows Feet are the wrinkles that develop in the corners of the eyes from repeated muscle activity caused by squinting, and are sometimes also called Laugh Lines or Character Lines. Placing Botox in the crows feet helps to relax the muscle around the eye which smooths out the skin and gives a younger appearance to the face. Botox can also be strategically placed in the muscle around the eye to give a beautiful definition to the eyebrow, enhancing the arch.
Injecting Botox in a few areas above the upper lip can turn the lip upwards and make it appear fuller.
A gummy smile occurs when the top lip extends past the teeth with smiling. Injecting Botox relaxes the muscles that pull the lip upwards and keeps the gums covered during smiling.
Drooping of the corners of the mouth can make a person appear angry, even through they may not feel that way.
By injecting Botox into the depressor anguli oris (DAO) muscle, the mouth can be restored to a more neutral position and project less negative expression.
Forehead + Frown Lines
The horizontal lines across the forehead are caused from the repeated muscle activity used to raise the eyebrows. Frown lines, also called the "11's", occur from repeated muscle activity between the eyebrows that are seen when the brows are furrowed. Botox in these areas relaxes the muscles responsible for these movements, thereby softening and reducing the appearance of these lines visible in the skin.
This a bulge that forms just below the eye and is worsened with laughing, smiling, or squinting. Botox can help soften this area and make you look more refreshed.
Vertical Lip Lines/Smokers Lines
Wrinkles around the lips can be treated by placing Botox in the muscle that allow the mouth to pucker.
Platysmal bands are the strips of muscle that are formed from the base of the neck up to the jaw that become more prominent as we age. Botox injections can help relax these muscles, resulting in a smoother neck with an improved jawline and overall more youthful appearance.
BOTOX® is an effective treatment for Hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes excessive sweating. This condition can be difficult to manage and can cause significant discomfort, embarrassment and stress. Treatment consists of injections in the underarms, palms, or soles of the feet and works by blocking the chemical signals that stimulate the sweat glands. Effects can provide improvement of bothersome sweating, lasting up to 6 months.
As we age we lose volume in our face, and the chin is no exception. As a result, the appearance of dimples can form and injecting Botox into the mentalis muscle of the chin helps to soften and lessen these dimples.
Botox injections into the masseter muscle can soften the jawline and help balance facial features. In some instances it can also reduce headaches and jaw pain caused by clenching of the teeth.
These are the crinkly lines that appear at the bridge of the nose when you laugh or smile deeply. An injection of Botox on each side can soften these lines.
