Smoothing fine lines and diminishing wrinkles using neurotoxins like Botox is your first line of defense in the fight against aging skin. Think of this anti-aging miracle worker as your best preventative measure. Not only will Botox dramatically decrease and smooth lines all over the face, but also relax the muscles and facial contractions that cause these wrinkles to appear in the first place, helping to prevent new lines from occurring. The result? A softer, smoother, more lifted, and overall more youthful appearance.
Botox Cosmetic is the most well-known injectable neuromodulator. Made by the anti-aging powerhouse Allergan, it’s a form of botulinum toxin that temporarily relaxes facial muscles all over the face. This softens the look of dynamic wrinkles created by repeated muscle movement (think: frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines and furrowed brows). Botox is FDA-approved to treat crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines.
Our master injectors are also experienced in using Botox off-label to soften and smooth lip lines, erase “bunny lines” on the nose, fix chin wrinkles, and correct neck bands. It’s also becoming increasingly popular to use it above the eyebrows and in the corrugator muscle to give patients a subtle “brow lift”, as well as above the upper lip to create what’s called a “lip flip.”
