Botox is used for the treatment of chronic migraines, overactive bladders, and excessive sweating of the underarms.
For cosmetic applications, Botox has shown to be highly safe and effective in nonsurgically treating the following areas:
- Botox Brow Lift – Erase “Angry 11”
The forehead area is front and center of everyone’s attention, and you don’t want to draw attention there for the wrong reason. Frown lines between the eyebrows can make you look angry; hence, the name “angry 11” given to the glabellar lines in this area.
Botox works best as treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. This “angry 11” vertical fold gradually relaxes so you appear friendly.
Traditional surgery removes extra muscles in this area while Botox injections do not, so you achieve natural-looking results in a few days’ time. New York Botox treatments for wrinkles are available in many clinics in the city, so it’s worth calling around to find out which one is most suitable for you.
The forehead muscles will eventually have an easier time to pull up the now-relaxed area between your brows. As your brows are lifted up, your eyes naturally open up too, making you look youthful and cheerful.
- Smile Lines: Botox a “crow’s feet” treatment to smile about
Since the eyes are a prominent area of our face, they are often the first ones that show obvious signs of aging. That’s because this area is delicate, as it is 40% thinner than the rest of our facial skin. They are also more prone to sun exposure, hastening the appearance of “crow’s feet” or fan-like wrinkles around the eye corners when we smile or laugh.
Botox delivery to smooth out “crow’s feet” is typically minimal to relax muscles and still allow natural movement. To replace lost collagen, Botox may be paired with dermal fillers that are injected into the eye corners to fill out deep wrinkles.
