What Areas Can Be Treated With BOTOX?
At Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics in Fulton, MD, we offer anti-aging treatments with BOTOX, the most popular cosmetic injectable. If you’re looking for a cosmetic treatment in the Baltimore, MD, area that can smooth expression lines and restore younger-looking skin, this injectable is the perfect option. Not only does it smooth expression lines, but it does so quickly through a quick, minimally invasive, and comfortable treatment.
What Areas Can Be Treated With BOTOX?
One of the reasons that BOTOX is so popular is that it is FDA-approved to treat most expression lines that form on the upper half of the face. At Eternal Dermatology, serving individuals in the Baltimore, MD area, we can use this injectable to treat the most common expression lines on the upper half of the face and some alternative areas to help patients achieve their aesthetic ideals.
One of the benefits of this injectable is that you can use it to address multiple areas of the face during one treatment to achieve the most comprehensive results.
The Outer Corners of the Eyes
The expression lines that form at the outer corners of the eyes are called crow’s feet. These etched lines often appear when smiling and can remain visible at the outer corners of the eyes, even when the face is at rest. Injections into the muscles at the outer corners of the eyes will relax them to smooth the skin for several months at a time.
Fine, moderate, and severe lines and wrinkles often appear on the forehead due to the aging process, genetics, and even sun exposure. Of all the expression lines that form, these are some of the most noticeable and can range from light, barely visible lines to extremely noticeable ones. Injections into specific muscles of the forehead will relax the muscles and allow the skin to rest, minimizing these lines and restoring youthful skin.
The Area Between the Eyebrows
Frown lines are common expression lines that form between the eyebrows of different severities. For some people, these indentations resemble the number 11, while others may only notice a single indent.
These lines can be light, moderate, or more severe to the point that they make you look angry or unapproachable. Injections into specific muscles above and around the eyebrows will relax those muscles, smoothing the skin to eliminate frown lines temporarily.
The Jawline and Chin
We can also use BOTOX® to perform an alternate treatment to soften the jawline and chin areas. Injections into specific muscles around the areas can improve the appearance of the jawline, smooth chin wrinkles, and help patients achieve their aesthetic ideals.
A Gummy Smile
Some people are predisposed to a gummy smile as a result of genetics. One of the benefits of BOTOX is that it can temporarily eliminate a gummy smile to improve the smile and make patients feel more confident in their appearance. Patients looking for a long-lasting treatment that can eliminate a gummy smile and improve facial proportions make good candidates for this injectable.
BOTOX also works as an alternative dermal filler treatment by creating the appearance of natural volume in the upper lip. Injections into specific muscles around the mouth can relax the upper lip to make it appear fuller, helping patients enjoy the benefits of lip augmentation for several months.
BOTOX can also lessen the appearance of jowls that form due to aging and skin elasticity loss. These jowls form from natural aging and are very difficult to treat with anti-aging products alone. We can use this injectable to reduce jowls and restore a youthful-looking appearance to the face.
Bunny lines appear on the nose during some of the most common facial expressions. If you are not happy with the appearance of your bunny lines, we can treat them with this injectable to restore smooth skin to the area.
Lines on the Neck and Décolletage
Just like the face begins to exhibit different signs of aging, lines and wrinkles can also form on the neck and the décolletage due to the natural aging process. We can use BOTOX injections to smooth these lines and restore younger-looking skin on the neck and décolletage.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which patients experience profuse sweating, typically from the underarms. The sweating is unrelated to activity or heat and cannot be treated with products like deodorant.
This injectable provides an effective solution for patients suffering from hyperhidrosis as it temporarily prevents the sweat glands from producing sweat. Regular treatments will restore the quality of life to patients experiencing this condition and help them feel more confident in social settings.
