Muscles in the chin can cause the skin to bunch and wrinkle, leading to an “orange peel” appearance. Calming the activity of these muscles keeps them from contracting the chin area and prevents the skin from being pulled into these wrinkles.
6. Upper Lip
For some people, a thin upper lip or one that raises to expose too much of the upper teeth and gums can be a source of self-consciousness. Treatment can create a “lip flip” for fullness, as well as prevent the upper lip from moving as much for those with a “gummy smile”, allowing you to speak and smile normally without overexposure of the gum line.
7. Jawline and neck
With so many muscles in the neck and skin so thin, neck lines can appear over time. By treating areas of the neck and jawline where overly active or tight muscles distort the skin, the appearance of wrinkles and fibrous bands can be reduced.
8. Excessive Sweating
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes people to sweat excessively. Typically, this is not related to heat or exercise and can occur at any time. Sweating can be severe and may soak through your clothes. Botox® can be used to treat this issue and help patients avoid embarrassment. That said, at FACE we prefer the permanent nature of MiraDry treatments.
In July 2010, Botox® was licensed for use on patients suffering from chronic migraines. If you constantly find yourself suffering from debilitating migraines Botox® could provide you with the relief you need.
TMJ (temporomandibular jaw disorder) is a condition that causes people to feel a significant level of discomfort in their jaw. Botox® treatment can provide patients with significant levels of relief.
Am I a Candidate for Botox®?
Botox® may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Many people begin using Botox® in their twenties to stop wrinkles from developing, rather than turning back the clock once they begin to show. One of our Nurse Injectors at FACE will discuss how Botox® could help you and what medical conditions it might be suitable for that you are experiencing.
