It’s finally summer, which means that your social calendar is likely pretty packed. Between hopping from graduations to weddings to barbecues and more, you may be considering cosmetic treatments to help you look your best. While wrinkle relaxers (like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Xeomin®) are great for smoothing out forehead lines, they can be used for so much more, including:
  • Reducing excessive sweating: During the summer, many people are worried about excessive sweating. Muscle relaxers can help! The active ingredient in muscle relaxers can block the secretion of the chemical that is responsible for activating sweat glands, which reduces the amount of sweat produced.
  • Neck lift: Your neck profile is important. A Nefertiti lift uses wrinkle relaxers to help relax the neck muscles that pull down the neck and chin, allowing the facial muscles to then lift the neck tissue upward. Vertical neck lines can also soften with these injections.
  • Brow lift: Did you know that several facial muscles pull the eyebrow down, but only one facial muscle pulls the brow up? BOTOX, or its alternatives, can be applied in such a way that the muscles pulling the brow down are relaxed relative to the muscle pulling it up. Dr. Chaboki can then lift the eyebrow and/or relax wrinkles in the area.
  • Nonsurgical rhinoplasty: While surgery is a long-term solution, nonsurgical rhinoplasty with wrinkle relaxers can temporarily improve bunny lines, improve a droopy tip, and reduce widening of the nostrils when smiling.
  • Jaw Slimming: Many patients want to slim the lower face and jawline, and these wrinkle relaxers can help those with large jaw muscles. Some also have relief from headaches, migraine, or TMJ symptoms with jaw reduction treatments.

During your consultation with Dr. Chaboki, you can discuss your goals and decide which treatment options are best for you.
