I thought Botox® was for wrinkles only?
Botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox® or anti-wrinkle injections, is a powerful and effective treatment option for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the upper quadrant of the face. But what about the lower half of the face?
Without any strenuous exercise or dietary changes/ requirements to achieve its slimming effect, Anti-Wrinkle Injections or Botox® can help to alleviate some of the gravitational “pull” created in the lower half of the face which if left, over time can result in a bulkier lower face.
So how does it work?
Using a carefully constructed treatment plan, anatomy knowledge combined with specific injection points, we can target precise facial muscles with microscopic amounts of botulinum toxin. This in turn blocks the signals from the nerves to these muscles, preventing them from contracting and treating the most common reason why most patients opt for Botox® … to smooth wrinkles that appear on the skin’s surface.
In reference to the gravitational “pull” in the lower face, Botox® has the ability to paralyse the overactive muscles such as the masseter (the muscle responsible for the jaw) and mentalis muscle (the muscle responsible for the chin) to achieve a more harmonious look to a patient’s lower face.
Botox® is a popular treatment amongst many patients and is very well known for its ability to smooth wrinkles and help achieve a fresher appearance. Its ability to be flexible in the face allows it to also address and target more than one specific area.
Whether you are looking to reduce the appearance of lines on the forehead, smooth the appearance around the eye area or treat the angry frown line you have, Botox® can absolutely do that for you.
But it is also an excellent option for anyone looking to achieve a more contoured or slimming look, and we have a vast amount of patients in our books that can vouch for its fantastic results, both long and short term.
Key details of areas that can be treated:
- Corners of the mouth
