Uses and Benefits of Botox

Botox is most commonly used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but it has been proven to address several other medical and cosmetic conditions as well. When you come in to Dr. O’Neill’s office, we’ll discuss your treatment goals and help you decide if it is right for you. Few treatments and procedures are as versatile and effective as Botox in treating the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, especially around the mouth and eyes. Less invasive than surgery, it’s a popular option that shows good results.

Why Botox?

This treatment works by blocking the signals between nerves and muscles, forcing fine muscles beneath the skin to relax. This, in turn, releases mild to moderate wrinkles, providing a smoother, more youthful appearance of the skin. It’s one of the most effective method found so far to remove wrinkles and lines without surgery. It’s minimally invasive and effective in reducing wrinkles on the neck, forehead, and around the mouth and eyes.

Brow Lift and Smile Improvement

If your brow has begun to sag over time due to age and other factors, Botox can help reduce the sag, lifting the brow and providing a more youthful, less tired appearance. Some people report feeling that their smile is “too gummy,” that is, that too much of the gums appear when they smile. This is the result of excessive upper lip elevation. It can relax the muscles in the upper lip, creating a more balanced, pleasing smile.

Easing Wrinkles

Botox, when injected just below the surface of the skin, relaxes the fine muscles of the face, easing the look of tension lines and wrinkles. The result is a smoother, more youthful complexion. When you come in for your initial consultation, Dr. O’Neill will discuss Botox and other treatment options with you, and help you decide upon the best course of treatment for your specific goals.
