Advanced Botox® injections in Cosmetic Surgery offices

Botox® has been reducing wrinkles around the eyes for years. The company behind Botox initially received US FDA approval for cosmetic application in the areas between eyebrows (i.e. 11’s) and the sides of the eyes (i.e Crow’s feet). The extensive advertising of these specific treatments have made Botox well known for these wrinkles. Beyond these two areas, cosmetic surgeons have been safely using Botox and other similar wrinkles relaxers, such as Dysport® and Xeomin®, for a variety of cosmetic applications.

How Can BOTOX® Reduce a Square Jaw?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is known to improve wrinkles of the forehead and eyes, but it has many other cosmetic uses. Because it so effectively relaxes muscles, BOTOX can also sculpt the face and slim the jawline. For patients who may think their face is “too fat,” liposuction might not be the answer. A better option may be facial sculpting with BOTOX for jaw reduction in my Washington, DC office. Both BOTOX and Dysport may be used to treat the face and neck for cosmetic purposes. These 2 treatments act similarly to relax muscles and improve appearance. Some physicians or patients may … Continue reading »
