Botox for Crow’s Feet
The appearance of fine lines, or ‘crow’s feet’ at the outer corners of the eyes, and their presence even when you’re not smiling, is often associated with ageing. However, Botox is very effective in reducing their appearance. It’s therefore one of the most popular areas for the treatment.
With careful assessment, Botox in this area can also help alleviate drooping eyelids – an effect that can make the eyes appear smaller.
Botox for Frown Lines
Glabella lines (frown lines) are the vertical creases that appear between the eyebrows, generating a tired or angry look. This is a very effective area on which to use Botox. The Spacio Clinic’s experienced practitioner can subtly smooth these frown lines, resulting in a rejuvenated and more relaxed appearance.
If the glabella lines are deep set, the practitioner is likely to recommend treatment with dermal filler in combination with Botox, which is a highly effective way to fill and smooth the area simultaneously.
Botox for Forehead Lines
Horizontal forehead lines are mostly due to genetic aging. Sun damage or smoking can also result in the formation of creases that are deeper and more difficult to treat. Botox can lessen the effect but may not remove the lines completely. During your consultation, the practitioner might recommend a combination of Botox and another treatment, such as dermal fillers.
Botox for Hooded Eyes
Sometimes called a ‘chemical brow lift’ or ‘Botox facelift’, this procedure involves an experienced practitioner placing injections in a careful combination of areas on the upper face to open up the eye area and lift droopy lids. On younger faces, the brow is well supported and its position above the eye remains high. However, the effects of ageing can cause the brow to drop, giving the eyelid a ‘hooded’ appearance. This can create horizontal folds in the surrounding skin.
Botox can be used very effectively to counteract this effect, raising and defining the eyebrows. However, it’s important to use the treatment sparingly in this area to avoid the recognisable overarched, ‘surprised’ look.
Botox for Eye Bags
If it is under-eye ‘bags’ that you wish to address – that is, the area between the lower eyelid and the upper cheek, or ‘tear trough – then it might be that a different treatment would be more effective than Botox, or could be used in combination with Botox. For example, ‘bags’ under the eyes are often caused by loss of volume in the tear trough area, meaning dermal fillers may be more suitable.
Botox for Nose
‘Bunny lines’ are the creases that appear when the nose wrinkles up; for example, when we sniff or smell something. The careful placement of Botox injections at either side of the nose can reduce the appearance of these lines. However, it is crucial that an experienced practitioner administers the injections, since your smile can be affected if they are not carried out properly.
Botox for Jaws
Botox Jaw Reduction is done by injecting botox at the right dose to relax these 2 muscles found at the side of the face. Just one to three injections are needed for each muscle, and the needle used is that of an insulin needle and thus is extremely small-calibre and unlikely to cause anything other than a sensation of an “ant-bite”.
The effects start showing within 7-10 days, and then the muscles shrink further in the next 1 month’s time. 1 month after injection is when the maximum effects are seen. Injecting Botulinium Toxin Type A (Botox) into the Muscles of Mastication can convert a square face into a heart-shaped face of beauty.
