Botulinum toxin injections are one of the most popular treatments for fine lines and wrinkles in the upper part of the face. Botulinum toxin works by relaxing the small muscles of the face to produce a softer, younger look.
Botulinum toxin is ideally suited to the upper one third of the face where wrinkles are made by muscle movement. A few tiny injections can soften the movement and reduce the lines. In the lower part of the face botox can be used to treat an enlarged masseter muscle (from teeth clenching or grinding), gummy smile, a downturned mouth, nasal flaring, and platysmal bands in the neck.
Botulinum toxin can also be used to treat excessive armpit sweating.
