Forehead Lines are softened and minimized with anti-wrinkle injections. This is an area where many people wear their expression on their face and when left untreated, moderate to severe lines form. Of course, the longer we wait to have treatment, the deeper the wrinkles can set in and age our appearance.
Eyebrow Lift because gravity, aging and muscles can work against us, our brows can make the eyes appear heavy and smaller. A skilled anti-wrinkle provider can strategically place Botulinum toxin at the brow area to work with your arch and muscles to temporarily lift the brow. By working with your attributes, treatments are used to lessen the pull down on the brow, and subtly give the brow a more open appearance.
Crows Feet are those fine lines that develop around the outer corner of the eye. Most times they appear when we smile or squint. The more we do this, deeper lines can form if left untreated. Botulinum toxin are used to relax the outer small muscles that we pull on when we squint.
Frown Lines are those vertical, furrowed lines that develop between the eyebrows. This area is also called the “11’s” because the vertical lines that form look like 11. It’s not uncommon for the frown lines to form when we squint or frown. When your provider is assessing your needs, she may recommend Botulinum toxin in conjunction with other anti-aging treatments to refresh the appearance.
Bunny Lines appear at the upper bridge of the nose when we smile or laugh. Not everyone develops these lines but if you have them, then you know it, and they’re front and center when you smile. Your provider can use Botox to relax that pull and
Gummy Smiles can be minimized with regular Botulinum toxin treatments. When done properly, Botulinum toxin can minimize your gummy smile without changing the shape or appearance of your smile or your lips.
Smoker’s Wrinkles around the mouth are surprisingly as much from collagen loss these days as they are from smoking. They were once attributable to the constant puckering and heat from smoking. Now, with fewer people smoking, we still find ourselves fighting the battle with those vertical lines around the mouth. You will be amazed how Botox relieves the lines, giving the area around your mouth a smoother, softer appearance.
Lip Flip can be done to put a little lift or curve back into shape of your lips. While a lip flip doesn’t add volume, it relaxes our unconscious downward pull giving a subtle lift.
Marionette Lines are those lines we see forming downward from the corners of our mouth. Just as the smoker’s lines form, so do the marionette lines. Typically it is a combination of things that can cause these to form – a loss of collagen and small muscle contraction, and eventually the downward turn to the mouth occurs. As more collagen loss occurs, the lines turn into deeper lines creating what we refer to as folds. For a nonsurgical approach, your provider may recommend other treatments in addition to Botox for optimal results. Your provider can assess the severity of the lines to determine the best of course of treatment with Botox.
Neck Lines consist of both vertical lines (called platysmal bands) and horizontal lines (most often referred to as “tech neck” lines). Both types are treated with anti-wrinkle injections to relax the muscles. This is especially true with the vertical lines. Horizontal lines are also treated with dermal fillers.
Jaw Line Slimming is another area where Botulinum toxins can be beneficial to minimize the appearance. Botox can be helpful to individuals who have a tendency to clench their jaw. Repetitive clenching or constant flexion of the masseter muscle increase the size of the muscle. Over time, the muscle expands and gives the face a fuller appearance in that area. Botox is used to relax the clenching. With repetitive treatment over time, the muscle will relax and return to a more normal size. Pain is often typical with clenching the jaw, and Botulinum toxins can help reduce pain associated with clenching. Improve the facial shape.
