Laughter, sadness, anger and surprise – your face shows all of your emotions to the world. A lifetime of emotions means that your facial muscles have been put to the test, leading to wrinkles, crow’s feet, and laugh lines. As years go by, some of those familiar expressions are ingrained on our faces as laugh lines, furrows and other pesky wrinkles, usually around the brow and eyes.
Botox gradually smooths these wrinkles by relaxing the muscles around them, so you’ll regain a clean slate with which to express yourself.
Botox is a prescription medication injected into the muscles of the targeted area. During a 10-minute procedure, we administer Botox with a few tiny injections. Within a few days, you will begin to notice a temporary relaxation of muscle movement. This effect can last up to four months after the treatment. You will enjoy smoother, more youthful skin in the treated areas. The most commonly treated areas are: forehead, between the brows and around the eyes to improve moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. Patients also enjoy the use of Botox above the lip (often referred to as the lip flip) which helps build the lip upwards instead of out.
