Our expert injectors offer Botox treatments to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and Botox has spent years in the spotlight of cosmetic and medical treatments, and that is not changing.
Botox injections are made with purified ingredients that many patients use throughout their face, neck, and hands to diminish unwanted facial wrinkles.
Bunny lines are the lines around the bridge of the nose that are put on display when you make facial expressions like “wrinkling your nose.” Strategically placing Botox injections on either side of the nose can reduce the appearance of wrinkles while still allowing for facial expression.
This is also called “jelly roll” Botox because of the way undereye muscle bulges can appear. What Botox does for undereye bags is help the muscle relax so that when you squint or smile, that jelly roll no longer appears. Some patients choose fillers to alleviate undereye concerns. Our team is happy to help you determine which anti-wrinkle injection solution is best for you.
A Botox lip flip is a procedure that is very popular among patients. It makes your lips look fuller with Botox injections around the edges of your lips and in the corners of your mouth. These injection locations relax the muscles around your upper lip. As the muscles relax, the upper lip will flip upward enough to make the lips appear fuller without actually adding volume.
Forehead wrinkles are incredibly stubborn. So many patients try different serums and creams to no avail. Fortunately, a few injections throughout the forehead make an astonishing difference in relaxing the muscles. Now, when you raise your eyebrows, your forehead will remain smooth.
You can reshape your jaw without surgery. The masseter muscle is a facial muscle connecting your lower jaw to the cheek. This muscle can become enlarged, especially if you grind your teeth. Botox injections help the masseter muscle to work a little less hard, slimming your face naturally over time.
While a surgical brow lift is an extensive, invasive procedure, Botox offers a quick, non-invasive alternative. The results are temporary, do not require surgery, and can be maintained with routine treatments. A Botox brow lift will stop your eyebrows from drifting downward as the skin loses elasticity. After paralyzing the muscles, your brows can raise anywhere from one to three millimeters.
Crow’s feet are also known as lateral canthal lines or laugh lines. Essentially, they are the fine lines you see on your eyes’ outer corners. Botox is one of the most effective solutions for combating wrinkles and lines around this delicate area.
In addition to handling wrinkles and lines, there are some conditions that Botox is quite useful for easing symptoms. While it is not a cure, Botox injections can help to block chemical signals from the nerves causing muscles to contract. This alleviates discomfort significantly.
Normal headaches that occur every so often are easily treated with home remedies or over-the-counter medications. However, those who have more than 15 headaches in one month (this is considered a chronic migraine) or fewer headaches but the intensity persistently rises to a migraine often choose Botox.
Botox injections once every three months are normal for reducing how often migraines occur.
Excessive sweating quickly becomes uncomfortable, sometimes even embarrassing, when it happens at the wrong time. Some patients struggle with sweating too heavily and too often, even when they’re not exercising or hot. The medical term for this is hyperhidrosis. Your cosmetic injector will strategically place Botox injections that essentially turn off some of the sweat glands in your treatment area.
One of the major reasons for a lazy eye (strabismus) is an imbalance of muscles that move the eye. Botox has been useful for lazy eyes since the 1970s. Your aesthetic nurse injector will use a needle that connects to an electromyogram (EMG). This EMG signals where a contracting muscle exists so that a small dose of Botox targets it.
Within 3 to 5 days after the procedure, you will already start to notice the results. This normally lasts approximately between 3 and 4 months. BOTOX injections are known to be safe, effective, and affordable. However, discussing the side effects with Dr. Casello is still advised. To maintain the desired results, follow-up treatments are also recommended.
Some patients experience redness, swelling, and/or tenderness at the injection sites. Bruising is possible, but is short lasting (7 days or less).
Botox is an effective FDA approved treatment for chronic migraines.
