One of the most popular anti-aging treatments available today, Botox Cosmetic injections reduce the appearance of dynamic facial wrinkles, or lines caused by the movement of muscles. Botox can also lift sagging eyebrows, treat excessive sweating, and relieve rosacea symptoms.
Botox blocks certain chemical signals that cause muscles to contract, temporarily relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox is FDA-approved to correct frown lines between the eyebrows.
It can also be used to treat wrinkles in other areas of the face, including forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, "bunny" lines around the nose, and "smoker's lines" around the mouth. Botox can also be used to improve marionette lines below the mouth, elevate the nose tip, give a "neck lift" and treat bands in the neck ("turkey neck"). It is also used to correct an "orange peel" appearance in the chin and sagging mouth corners. Other uses are to correct excessive sweating, improve migraine headaches, and lessen redness in cases of rosacea.
Botox can be used in the lower face and neck to temporarily reduce wrinkles, and improve the jaw line, a procedure tabbed a Botox neck lift. It can also be used to reduce the turkey neck appearance. Lip wrinkles, and marionette lines can be temporarily reduced. The orange peel appearance some develop in the chin can also be improved.
Botox injections can be combined with a facial filler such as Juvederm, or Restylane to maximize results.
