Wrinkle correction can be done by using Botulinum toxin as a muscle relaxer or in combination with Dermal Fillers. Dermal fillers are soft tissue fillers, injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles, thereby restoring a smoother appearance. Fillers are used in creating a smoother and or fuller appearance in the face, including, cheeks, lips and for increasing the volume of the back of the hand. Injectable fillers in some people may need more than one injection to achieve the wrinkle-smoothing effect and the effect may last for about six months or longer. Successful results depend on the health of the skin, skill of the health care provider, and type of filler used.
Excessive sweating in the underarms hands or feet are treated with botulinum toxin injections. The injections are placed directly into the armpit for underarm sweating, or in the palm of the hand for sweating in the hands. Procedure takes 10 minutes and results last up to6 months.
A lip flip with botulinum toxin gives the lips a natural looking enhancement without having to use a filler, minimizing the cost and risk of bruising and bleeding significantly. The lips appear fuller without any added volume and reducing “gummy smiles” by preventing the top lip from disappearing when smiling.
A “gummy smile” correction reduces the appearance of a gummy smile by relaxing a muscle called LLSAN with a few units of botulinum toxin. a combination therapy with filler is also available.
Botulinim toxin is injected into the Masseter muscle, resulting in a more structured face and refined jawline. This treatment can also combine with dermal filler for jaw line and chin contour.
