Continue to read through this article to find out!
Known as the Frontalis Muscle, this relatively sizeable facial muscle is the one that overlies the forehead, and when it contracts, the brow raises, and forehead lines appear. BotoxⓇ is injected horizontally into this muscle, high enough from the brow to be safe, every cm or so, to help create a smooth and natural looking forehead, without the deep crease lines.
The treatment of glabellar lines is one of the most popular cosmetic uses for BotoxⓇ. The glabella is the patch of skin between the eyebrows and above the nose, referred to as the Corrugator Supercilii and Procerus muscles. This is essentially where frown lines develop on people, and it is the smoothing away of these lines that revitalizes the face after injections.
The muscles around our eyebrows are what really gives us the ability to make facial expressions, whether it is smiling, laughing, frowning, grimacing, you name it. Overuse can result in the development of a high quantity of wrinkles, thus making it the perfect spot for injections to help lessen the look of ageing caused by these deep lines.
Tiny muscles around our eyes help in the creation of our facial expressions, it is these muscles that cause fine lines to develop around them, known as Crow’s Feet, or periorbital lines or lateral canthal lines. This is another very popular site of injection for BotoxⓇ, as the filler works to relax the small muscles, creating less squinting and crinkling around the eyes, therefore smoothing away the signs of ageing.
Scientifically known as Transverse nasal, but more commonly referred to as bunny lines, these wrinkles occur on the bridge of the nose. This is a popular place to inject in those who have already treated their Crow’s Feet and Glabella with previous BotoxⓇ use.
Peri-oral Lines, or lipstick lines, are vertical wrinkles that develop above the upper lip. The formation of these fine lines happens for many reasons, including photoaging, hereditary factors, puckering, smoking (sometimes referred to as smoker’s lines), and other environmental factors. By treating the lines around your mouth, as well as the facial areas listed above, you can obtain an all-over more youthful appearance, as BotoxⓇ works to revitalize the look and feel of your skin, lessening the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Hyperhydrosis or Hyperhidrosis
BotoxⓇ injections are a great way to treat hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. These injections can be used to control sweating by blocking the release of acetylcholine, the body’s chemical which stimulates the sweat glands. BotoxⓇ can be administered to the armpits, palms, and soles of the feet when treating hyperhidrosis.
As part of our business model, we extend a free consultation to all of our potential clients so they can feel well informed before any treatment is performed.
