 How Botox Can Be Used to Treat Your Frown Lines

Botox are purified biological proteins approved by the FDA to be used on muscles surrounding your wrinkles that will help the skin relax and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. botox injections for crow's feet

Botox works against your wrinkles because your skin is actually attached to your facial muscles and muscle contractions are what allows you to have facial expressions. 

But it is also muscle contractions that cause the skin to fold and wrinkle, and these become more pronounced as you age and your skin begin to get more loose.  But injecting Botox into the muscles around your eyes, you can prevent the skin from being pulled, hence won't give you the appearance of wrinkles. 

Botox manufacturer Allergan recommends 24 units (6 injections per eye) for optimal results. However, a single Botox unit is strong so beginners should start conservatively with 10 units instead. We carry brand name Botox if that is what you are used to.  We also have Dysport that is more affordable and can give you a more diffused natural look.  Dysport has become more popular recently.  Call us so we can better customize your treatment for you. More info on our Botox here. 


How Fillers Can Be Used To Treat Your Frown Lines

Fillers are also biological compounds that can also be used to add volume below wrinkles to push up the troughs so the wrinkles disappear, or at least appear less deep.

In soft-tissue filler therapy, a dermal filler – such as Juvederm is injected directly into the frown lines with a very small needle to lift up the crease and improve the skin's appearance. We also use Sculptra, which is a more advanced filler that stimulates your skin to produce more collagen so over time the filler is replaced by your own natural tissue.

We carry various fillers that are designed to fill different areas so we can better customize your treatment as well. More info on our Fillers here.
