Anti-Wrinkle Injectables

Forehead/Crows feet

Wrinkles are lines, creases or folds in the skin.

There are two types of face skin wrinkles – dynamic wrinkles and static wrinkles:

  • Dynamic wrinkles are lines, creases or folds that are caused by the pull of the facial muscles during repeated facial expression. Examples of these include forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and smile lines. These wrinkles are seen with movements of the face during emotion.

  • Static wrinkles are lines, creases or folds in the facial skin seen when the face is at rest and not moving. Static wrinkles can be caused by sun damage, skin ageing, smoking and by long term dynamic lines that become permanent.

 

Depending on the dose used and the age treated, anti-wrinkle botox injections can be used to prevent lines developing/deepening or to soften existing lines.

Anti-wrinkle product botox can also be injected into the Masseter Muscle to slim the jawline and also to treat excessive sweating in the underarms, hands or feet.

Hyperhidrosis ( underarm sweating)

A certain amount of sweating is normal and helps us to cool down when we’re too hot. However, sometimes the body produces more sweat than it needs to. This is called hyperhidrosis. We understand the impact this condition can have on everyday life, which is why our dermatologists can offer Botox™ treatment to help reduce excessive sweating.

Masseter Botox ( Jaw Slimming)

Botox injection into the masseter muscle is ideal for patients who are grinding, clenching, and wearing out their teeth and need a lot of dental work, for patients who have frequent tension or migraine headaches, and for patients who do not like the shape of their face because of square or thick jaw line and who want to appear more feminine.

The amount of Botox needed to treat this area ranges between 60 and 100 units of Botox, depending on the thickness of the muscle. Patients can expect headaches and clenching to go away within a week and will see the full effects of jaw thinning about one month after treatment, when the muscle has had time to atrophy.
