FOREHEAD LINES

Forehead Lines are wrinkle lines which form on the forehead.
These are horizontal lines across the forehead. They are formed due to active involvement of the forehead muscles in facial expression, frequent exposure to sunlight, and loss of skin elasticity with age. Active wrinkles which are visible only with muscle contraction are best treated with Botox injections. Small doses injected in multiple areas of the forehead will significantly reduce active forehead lines.

FROWN LINES

Frown lines appear due to gathering of tissue into a fold between the eyebrows.
Repeated facial expressions such as frowning tend to deepen these lines producing an angry or sad look. Careful injection of Botox into the area where the skin tends to wrinkle during repeated facial expressions causes the selected muscles to relax and softens the wrinkles in these areas.

CROWS FEET

Crow’s feet lines are wrinkles that are formed around the corner of the eyes in a pattern that resembles crow’s feet. They are formed due to loss of skin elasticity with age, weakening of facial muscles, and repeated laughing or squinting. Careful injection of Botox into the region around the corners of the eyes prevents the muscles in this area from contracting vigorously during squinting or laughing. This eliminates the crow’s feet effect during facial expression.

Anti-Wrinkle Treatment

 

What is Botox?

Botox is a brand name of a purified toxin produced by a form of bacterium known as Clostridium botulinum.

Scientists have developed a method of diluting the toxin so that it loses its toxic properties while retaining its

ability to cause muscle relaxation and smoothening of wrinkles.

 

How does Botox work?

When Botox is injected into a muscle it acts by blocking signals from the nerves causing muscle contractions. The muscle no longer contracts forcefully and hence the wrinkle lines are softened.

 

How is the Botox injection performed?

Specific muscles are selected for the Botox procedure to provide maximum cosmetic benefit. The muscles are injected with a fine needle. There is no need for anesthesia as only minimal discomfort is produced with Botox treatment.

 

When am I expected to see Botox results?

It generally takes 3-7 days to see the results of Botox, but in some cases 2 weeks.

How long does Botox results last?

The Botox results lasts around 4-6 months. With repeated Botox injections, the wrinkle lines appear less severe as the muscles are trained to relax.

What are the side effects of Botox?

Transient bruising and slight pain. Headache is a rare side effect of Botox that lasts a day or two.

Are there any contraindications?

Breastfeeding, pregnancy, neurological disease, allergy to Botox.

Botox can be used to raise the eye brow by carefully injecting the muscles that depress the brow so that they relax and the brow rests in a lifted position. It is performed to lift sagging eye brows and to reduce the vertical creases between the eyes and the horizontal lines across the forehead.
The procedure is very safe although there are minimal risks which include brow asymmetry and skin sensation changes.

BUNNY LINES/NOSE LINES

Bunny lines/nose lines are diagonal wrinkles that appear along the side of the nose every time you crinkle up your nose during certain facial expressions such as laughing. They can be treated with Botox injections to prevent the contraction of the facial muscles that cause the crinkling of the nose.

WIDE JAW REDUCTION

A wide jaw is one that appears large and out of proportion with the rest of the face.
Increased width of the jaw may be caused by overdeveloped facial muscles responsible for chewing. Injecting Botox into these muscles results in marked reduction in the jaw width and sliming of the face.

DIMPLED CHIN CORRECTION

A dimpled chin is caused by hyperactive muscles of the chin which contract vigorously during

certain facial expressions causing wrinkles in the chin. 

A dimpled chin may be corrected by injecting Botox to relax the chin muscles as well as

controlling the involuntary habit of puckering the chin.

REDUCTION OF NECK FOLDS

With age, the skin loses elasticity and muscles of the neck which animate facial expression

may cause folding of skin due to repeated contraction.

 Botox can be injected into the platysma muscles of the neck which

are actively used during facial expression. They help to soften the prominence

of the platysma bands that cause vertical wrinkle lines in the neck.

HYPERHYDROSIS

Hyperhidrosis is a pathological condition that is characterized by excessive sweating unrelated

to increased physical activity or rise in temperature. This may cause embarrassment in

social situations and even interfere with activities of daily living.
The nerves that trigger the sweat glands become overactive causing profuse sweating.
Hyperhidrosis for which the underlying cause is not determined is known as primary

hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis associated with certain medical conditions such as diabetes,

heart attack, cancer, infectious disease, an overactive thyroid or some medication is known

as secondary hyperhidrosis.
Botox can be used for treatment of severe primary hyperhidrosis of the underarms,

hands, feet, face and other areas of the body such as under the breasts.
Using a fine-needled syringe, small quantities of Botox are injected just below the

skin surface throughout the area noted to have excessive sweating.

The injections can be performed around 15-20 minutes as an outpatient procedure.
Botox acts by temporarily blocking the action of the nerves which stimulate the sweat glands.
Other than avoiding intense exercise or using a sauna on the day you receive the injections,

there are no restrictions.
You will notice reduced sweating within 2-4 days. Maximum effect may take up to 2

weeks in some cases.
Typically, the effects of treatment last anywhere between 4-12 months or even longer.
