BOTOX® for Face Wrinkles

Woman after BOTOX for wrinkles in MiamiWrinkles are caused in part by repeated facial expressions that create creases and grooves in the skin. These marks are a common concern for many men and women who want a smoother, more vibrant complexion.

Improving facial wrinkles is one of the most well-known uses of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Commonly referred to as a wrinkle relaxer, this product limits the activity of targeted facial muscles for a smoother, more youthful look. The simple treatment is appropriate for many different types of facial wrinkles, including stubborn crow’s feet.

BOTOX® for Frown Lines

Frown lines are the vertical marks between your eyebrows. Clinically referred to as glabellar lines, these furrows are sometimes called “11 lines” because of their appearance. They form when you frown or concentrate because these actions knit the underlying muscles together and create creases in the skin.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is an excellent solution for moderate to severe frown lines. Dr. Patel can inject the muscles between your eyebrows to achieve a look that is more even and lifted.  

BOTOX® for Forehead Lines

Forehead lines are the horizontal marks that stack up between the top of your brows and your hairline. Every time you raise your eyebrows, your forehead muscles contract, creating lines and folds across the skin. Forehead wrinkles are often visible when your face is at rest, and become more prominent when you lift your brows.

Dr. Patel can inject the muscles responsible for frown lines with BOTOX® Cosmetic. The treatment will smooth away these marks for a fresh, rejuvenated result.

BOTOX® for Jaw Definition

Many people struggle with an undefined jawline. In many cases, the platysma muscles, which run from the chest to the lower face, are to blame. These muscles constantly pull down on the jawline, disrupting the contour of the area.

The solution is a treatment called the Nefertiti Lift. This aesthetic technique uses BOTOX® Cosmetic to improve jawline definition by relaxing the vertical muscles in your neck. With the neck bands relaxed, the upper face can properly lift the skin to reveal a sharper, stronger lower chin and jaw.

BOTOX® for Face Slimming

When a muscle between your jaw and cheek called the masseter becomes enlarged, it can dramatically alter the appearance of your lower face. Activities such as grinding or clenching your teeth can contribute to this irregular muscle development. An oversized masseter can make an oval face look square or cause facial asymmetry.

BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to relax overactive masseter muscles and restore proper facial proportions. In many cases, the treatment achieves a more tapered face shape.
