Fine lines and wrinkles that form due to facial movements can be treated by Botox. The areas typically treated are frown lines ("elevens") between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and crows's feet. Additional areas that can be treated are widened jaw due to clenching and grinding of teeth causing TMJ pain, gummy smile, fine lines under the eye, a down-turned smile, bunny lines on the nose, a pebbly chin, and can create the appearance of fuller lips with the microbotox "lip flip". Botox can be used as a preventative to stop the formation of deep lines or as a corrective measure to  erase them. A treatment of Botox typically takes less than 10 minutes.

A customized treatment plan and facial mapping developed in consultation with the doctor is essential to treatment. It is an effective treatment with amazing. results.
