Botulinum Toxin - The ultimate wrinkle eraser.
BOTOX is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein. BOTOX smoothes out lines by preventing the muscles from contracting into a wrinkle.
BOTOX FOR LINES AND CREASES
When we frown, blink or squint, we gather tissue into a fold which can cause a chronic crease in our skin. This results in crow's feet, forehead wrinkles and frown lines. BOTOX blocks nerve impulses to muscles, causing relaxation. Because certain muscles are used when twitching or frowning, injecting these muscles with minute doses of BOTOX stops the action. Once a muscle action has been relaxed, existing creases fade and further ones are prevented.
This treatment also shows remarkable results in brow elevation. It can widen the eye area and give you an open, refreshed appearance. Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, anesthetic ointment may be used to numb the discomfort of a BOTOX treatment. The procedure takes minutes to perform and the effect usually takes just days to become apparent. To prevent lines from reappearing, a simple touch-up treatment two to three times a year is recommended.
BOTOX FOR FACIAL CONTOURING
Most women consider a square jaw to be rather severe and masculine. Chewing on foods such as dried squid or gum or teeth grinding can result in overdeveloped muscles in the jawline. This is known as Masseter Hypertrophy or more commonly, square jaw. BOTOX is a highly successful treatment that can beautifully contour the lower face and create a slim, feminine jaw.
BOTOX FOR EXCESSIVE SWEATING
Sweat glands require a nerve impulse to activate. Without this stimulation, they won't secrete. By injecting BOTOX into problem areas such as underarms, hands and feet, the related nerve impulse is temporarily relaxed and prevented from reaching the sweat gland. This, in turn, stops sweat production in the treated area. The treatment is as simple as it sounds.
All patients report a substantial decrease in sweating within two days. Many patients have also reported not perspiring at all following treatment. Repeat treatment is usually recommended within five to seven months.
BOTOX FOR OTHER INDICATIONS
Newer information including our recent research has shown that BOTOX also affects sebaceous glands (oil glands), blood vessels in the face and skin texture.

What are injectable dermal fillers?
Injectable fillers are substances designed to:
Induce Collagen Production
Overall restore the youthful 3-dimensional contour of the face
There are many filler choices: hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring human protein responsible for cushioning the skin (Juvederm™, Restylane™, Perlane) and newer fillers or volumisers that are meant to fill larger volume loss like sunken cheeks, lost cheekbones, and very deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines (such as Teosyal Ultra Deep, Teosyal Deep Lines and poly-L-lactic acid / Sculptra™). Newer generation fillers such as Evolence are made from natural collagen and can be used for the same indications such as hyaluronic acid dermal fillers except lip augmentation.
