Botulinum injectables are substances used to soften expression lines such as those in the frown, forehead & crowsfeet areas. Over time, as this treatment is performed through the years, there is progressive and lasting improvement of these lines.
Furthermore, Botulinum products can be used to soften the anterior neck bands and cause a modest lift of the jawline, as part of a procedure called the Nefertiti Lift.
Similarly, Botulinum can be injected around the lips, particularly the upper lip, to soften smoker’s lines, and it may also be used to correct the gummy smile and raise the tip of the nose in some patients. The applications of Botulinum for cosmetic purposes on the face are thus multiple, and when skillfully applied they can lead to smooth facial skin and a youthful appearance.
