What is it?
Botulism toxin, or anti wrinkle injections work to reduce the appearance and formation of lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscle.
Who is it for?
For those who have dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles caused by movement of the muscle) and those who wish to prevent new wrinkles from forming.
Common treatment areas are:
Glabella: Also referred to as your 11’s, the glabella is the region between the eyebrows
Crows feet (Outer corner of the eyes)
Bunny lines; lines on the nose which can appear from scrunching of the nose muscle
Vertical lip lines
Sides of mid chin (down turned mouth)
Mental crease; the horizontal crease between your lower lip and the chin
Masseter; the masseter muscle is used for chewing and if overactive can be the source of teeth grinding. A bulky masseter can make the face appear square and masculine.
How is it done?
Botulism toxin is injected into the target area where the wrinkles form. Once the muscle is relaxed, dynamic wrinkles are greatly reduced.
