Anti-wrinkle injections with BOTOX® are the most popular treatment for lines and wrinkles. It is a form of muscle relaxation that results in a refreshed appearance and prevents further mechanical premature ageing.
There are other popular brands of muscle relaxation such as Azzulure and Bocouture® that produce great results. The most commonly treated areas are the frown, the forehead and the smile lines otherwise called the 'crow's feet.’ Sometimes people select one of these areas to be treated but we sometimes recommend that treating all three areas at the same time gives an all round refreshed appearance.
BOTOX® treatments need to be repeated every 3 to 6 months depending on individuals in order to maintain the desired result.
Botox - Frown Lines
This is one of the areas most commonly treated with BOTOX®. A constant or strong frown may result in a serious appearance and also can cause one or two deep permanent lines often called the ‘elevens.’ Relaxation of this area results in a gentler softer appearance and the elevation of the eyebrows with a resulting younger look.
Botox - Crows Feet
Smile lines are popularly called crow’s feet and are often the penalty of a life of laughter and smiles. However they can occur as a sign of general premature ageing. When treated with BOTOX® the lines reduce markedly and disappear in some cases to allow the skin to recover.
Botox - Forehead
The forehead muscle helps us to elevate our eyebrows and is often powerful in people who are very expressive. In combination with sun damage, this mechanical lifting can result in permanent lines. Also in some people this area becomes lax resulting in low-laying eyebrows. At Dermakurve we pay attention to detail to place the BOTOX® treatment in a way that recognises and suits individual features and needs in order to achieve both elevation and smoothing of the forehead.
Botox - Neck
Sometimes the muscles of the chin, neck and corners of the mouth can become overactive and can give us a sad looking appearance as well as bands on the neck when we speak or swallow. The chin can also become overly dimpled and corrugated in appearance.
With skilled relaxation of specific muscles we are able to improve the dimpling of the chin and the down turning of the mouth corners.
The chewing muscle called the masseter can also be more powerful in some women giving an angled jaw appearance. BOTOX® can relax this muscle to soften the contour of the jaw line.
