BOTOX® Cosmetic can effectively soften lines on your face caused by the repeated action of certain muscles over the years. Whenever you smile, laugh, frown or make other facial express, the muscular contraction creates folds in your skin. Over time, the repeated folding of the skin can form deep lines that don't go away when you relax your face. BOTOX® softens these wrinkles, namely:
- Lines between the eyebrows
- Forehead lines
- Crow's feet
- Lip lines
On the other hand, fine lines that are created by volume loss and sagging skin are typically not treated with BOTOX®. Because BOTOX® does not restore lost volume, you may benefit from a dermal filler such as Radiesse, which reduces lines by plumping your skin with volumizing material.
During your personalized consultation with Basil Pakeman, MD, FRCS, you can point out the specific areas of your face you would like to rejuvenate and then Dr. Pakeman can help you choose a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that will best accomplish your goals.
