Botox

Botox Ingredients
Botox has its origin from the organism Clostridium botulinum. This bacteria creates a neurotoxin that at high levels can cause death.  It works by paralyzing muscles by blocking the mechanism for muscle

How do you turn that frown upside down?  With Botox of course!  Gravity and genetics can cause the corners of the mouth to turn downwards, leading to a permanent frown and a grumpy appearance. Botox can relax the muscles that pull down the corners of the mouth which gives a slight lifting effect and a much more approachable look.

In some people, frown lines can stretch beyond the mouth and form deep grooves on either side of the chin, running straight downwards from the corners of the mouth.  These are called marionette lines because they resemble the mouth lines on a puppet.  They are caused by a loss of facial volume and creases caused by the repeated contraction of the depressor anguli oris muscle.  Botox can relax this muscle, reducing the downward pull, while facial fillers can replace lost volume and fill in deep creases.

There are two types of forehead wrinkles: the little vertical lines between the eyebrows called the 11-sign wrinkles (and also called the glabella area) that are caused by frowning or furrowing the brow, and the horizontal lines across the forehead that appear when you raise your eyebrows.  Botox  can relax the muscles that cause these forehead lines.

Crow’s feet are caused by years of laughing, squinting and smiling and are often the first wrinkles to appear on the face.  They are caused by the contraction of a circular muscle around the eye area called the orbicularis oculi.  Botox injected into this area weakens the orbicularis muscle, smoothing lines and wrinkles.

Cost is highly dependent upon the amount of units needed to provide the best outcome. So prospective patients will have a better idea of the total price once they schedule a consultation. Once a treatment is mapped out, it will be much easier to calculate the cost. Keep in mind that financial options do exist that provide more financially-feasible payment methods. Our practice also accepts all major credit cards. To see a demonstration of Botox being injected.
