BOTOX is an incredibly useful tool and, in the right hands, can improve multiple areas of the face and neck. After they have had it one place many of our clients in Honolulu and other areas of the islands constantly ask us where else they can use BOTOX.
BOTOX truly is best and most often used for forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet lines around the eyes, and those creases between the eyebrows. BOTOX has been safely used in these areas for many years and the vast majority of people have had BOTOX used in these 3 areas. But Botox can be used in many other areas such as:
- Around the mouth to reduce a “gummy smile”
- Lifting up the corners of the mouth
- On the lips to reduce “smoker’s lines”
- “Bunny lines” on the sides of the nose
- Tightening of the jawline
- Lifting eyebrows
- Nasal flare reduction
- The neck to lessening the appearance of neck bands
- Decreasing the “orange peel” appearance of the chin
- Corners of the mouth to decrease a frowning appearance
There are also many non-cosmetic uses for BOTOX but as with everything else, make sure you receive treatment from a qualified practitioner who is experienced in the procedure you are seeking. BOTOX has been effectively used for TMJ and migraines. Sweating (hyperhidrosis) is also a symptom treated by BOTOX in the underarms, palms and soles. Some are even treating facial sweating with BOTOX.
The longevity of most treatments is between 3-4 months but sometimes longer. Again, make sure you’re getting your BOTOX from a licensed practitioner with experience, like you will find here at the Breast Implants Center of Hawaii, because misplaced injections that penetrate deeper than the skin can affect the function of the facial muscles and asymmetric facial movements. If you are in the Honolulu area or elsewhere in Hawaii contact our office for your BOTOX consultation today. You’ll definitely be in good, qualified and caring hands with us.
