Wrinkle Relaxers

Wrinkle Relaxers

Botox/Xeomin is used in the upper face to treat wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements, targeting the forehead (lines that are horizontal), glabella (the vertical lines between the eyes that can cause you to look angry), and crow’s feet (the lines on the side of the eyes above the cheeks). By relaxing these muscles, it reduces wrinkles and prevents new ones, enhancing appearance with quick, no-downtime treatments that leave you looking refreshed and youthful.

The advantages of this treatment include:

  • Erases fine lines and wrinkles
  • Noninvasive, no downtime
  • FDA approved to treat frown lines
  • Long-lasting, natural-looking results
  • Look younger and more revitalized

Masseter Botox – Jaws

Masseter Botox, also known as jaw Botox or jaw slimming treatment, targets the masseter muscle responsible for jaw clenching and grinding. This popular procedure not only helps alleviate discomfort associated with TMJ and teeth grinding but also achieves a slimmer, more contoured facial appearance.

By relaxing the masseter muscle, this treatment can help minimize the appearance of a wide or square jawline, creating a softer, more feminine look. Additionally, masseter Botox may improve facial symmetry and enhance the definition of the jaw and neckline.

The benefits of Masseter Botox treatments include:

  • Alleviates pain from TMJ, teeth grinding, and jaw clenching
  • Slims and contours the face for a more youthful appearance
  • Improves facial symmetry and jawline definition
  • Minimal downtime and long-lasting results
  • Customizable treatment plans to suit individual needs and goals

Permanent Fat Dissolving Treatments FAQ

What is the downtime for this treatment?

The downtime for this treatment is relatively minimal compared to more invasive fat-reduction procedures like liposuction. Most patients can return to their regular activities almost immediately after the treatment. However, there are some considerations:

Activity Restrictions: While there’s no extensive downtime, some clinicians may recommend avoiding strenuous exercise for a couple of days to help manage swelling and discomfort.

Swelling and Bruising: These are the most common side effects, and they can last from a few days up to a week. Swelling may be noticeable enough that some patients prefer to schedule their treatments close to weekends or take a couple of days off work, especially if the treatment area is visible, such as under the chin.

Appearance: Initially, the treatment area may appear worse due to swelling before it starts to improve. This is something to consider if you have social events or important meetings.

Sensitivity:

The sensitivity associated with this treatment is generally mild to moderate and can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Here’s what typically happens:

 

During the Procedure: The injection itself can cause discomfort, but the pain is usually brief. Some clinicians might apply a topical numbing agent to the area beforehand to reduce discomfort.

After the Procedure: Once the numbing wears off, you might experience aching or tenderness in the treated area. The intensity of pain can vary based on the individual’s pain tolerance and the area treated.

Management: Over-the-counter pain medications like acetaminophen or ibuprofen are usually sufficient for managing pain. Applying ice packs in short intervals (not directly on the skin) during the first 48 hours can also help reduce pain and control swelling.
