One of the first places wrinkles begin to develop is on the forehead, also known as expression lines and “11s” between the brows. Botox can help correct these lines, resulting in a relaxed, calm brow.
These facial wrinkles develop around the outer corner of the eyes, in a fan-like formation. Post-treatment, the muscles surrounding the eyes will begin to relax, preventing the creases from appearing.
Also known as marionette lines, these are the wrinkles that form around the mouth when frowning. Frown lines also appear on the forehead. Botox can be placed strategically into these muscles to relax the frown. Used in combination with fillers, frown lines can be further reduced and eliminated.
Excessive gingival display, or “gummy smile” is when a large portion of the upper gums is visible while smiling, due to a hyperactive upper lip. Botox can help reduce the appearance of gums by relaxing the muscles in the upper lip and face.
Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
Botox helps to inhibit the release of acetylcholine, the chemical responsible for activating sweat glands. Studies have shown a decrease sweating from the underarms by 82-87% with results lasting up to 12 months.
Headaches and Migraines
For those who suffer from chronic headaches or migraines, Botox can be used to prevent them before they even begin. Studies have shown that Botox prevents, on average, 8 to 9 headache days and migraine/probable migraine days a month.
