While the word “botulinum” might sound scary, when it comes to improving the skin, this toxin works magic. If you have lines, wrinkles, and creases that make you look old and tired, Dr. Deepak with Deepak Forever Med Services has the perfect solution. During a sit-down consultation, he will tailor a plan based on your specific needs.
Instead of accepting changes that come with age, you can grow older gracefully with the help of botulinum toxin A injections. Dr. Deepak is so precise in his work that no one will have a clue that you had any enhancements.
What is the Botulinum Toxin?
Along with Botulinum, there are other names for this toxin including Dysport and Xeomin. For reducing lines and wrinkles and rejuvenating aging skin, this is one of the safest and most effective treatments available. The toxin weakens or paralyzes facial muscles, causing the skin to become smooth and taut. The only downside is that the results only last a few months.
As a derivative of bacteria, in purified form, this substance blocks nerve signals to the target muscle, preventing it from contracting. By having Dr. Deepak inject the botulinum toxin, you end up with a natural look, rather than a “frozen face.”
Although the botulinum treatment improves different parts of the face and neck, it is most often used to minimize or eliminate forehead creases. Whether caused by age or exaggerated facial expressions, creases on the forehead make a person look much older than their actual age. In severe cases, it makes people appear angry or worried. Dr. Deepak can help minimize forehead creases.
Frown Lines or “11” Lines
With age comes an assortment of new facial lines and wrinkles. Among those are frown lines, or “11” lines, as some people call them. Even when happy, they make people look sad or upset. Botulinum injections can turn a frown upside down.
Instead of looking grumpy all the time, this treatment will make you look happy, softer, and more approachable. As a non-invasive procedure, it offers remarkable results. Often, doctors use Botulinum toxin, which is FDA approved, specifically for treating frown lines. With this treatment your frown lines do not just improve; they disappear.
The Botulinum toxin also has FDA approval for treating crow’s feet. These small lines on the outside corner of the eye develop with age, although too much squinting is another cause. Following the procedure, you can go back to work, school, or whatever other activity you were doing beforehand.
As the toxin takes effect, it helps specific muscles relax, causing crow’s feet to fade. Typically, it takes about a week to see optimal results. At that point, some people might mention that your eyes look brighter and your face fresher.
Gummy Smile Correction
The botulinum toxin can also help correct a gummy smile. Technically called “gingival display” or “excessive gingival exposure,” it is what the name implies: too much gum showing when a person smiles. Although there are several causes for a gummy smile, usually, it comes back to genetics.
If you struggle with this problem and often find yourself smiling with your lips closed out of embarrassment, now is the time to speak with Dr. Deepak. Botulinum toxin injections in the upper lip relax the muscles so that, when you smile, your gums are not as prominent.
Female Heart Shaped Face
Many people do not realize they can reshape their face using a non-surgical treatment. With Masseter injections, Dr. Deepak can change a female’s heart-shaped face. For this, he injects the botulinum toxin into the masseter muscle – the same muscle used for chewing – around the jawline. The toxin causes the muscle to relax, which creates more of a V or oval shape.
Once injected the jaw muscle shrinks. For facial reshaping, this neurotoxin protein works by temporarily decreasing the masseter muscle’s strength. To achieve optimal results, it usually takes between three and five injections given directly into this muscle on each side of the jawline.
Vertical Neck Lines
The development of vertical neck lines, known as platysma bands, is something that happens with age. Although surgery corrects this problem, Botulinum toxin injected into the bands is a safer solution that yields outstanding results.
The doctor injects tiny amounts of concentrated Botulinum toxin into the platysma muscle. As the muscle relaxes, the appearance of the neck bands diminishes. As with other Botulinum toxin injections, it typically takes several treatments to achieve the desired results. There is no downtime; you can even have this procedure performed during your lunch hour or after work.
The best candidate for this treatment is someone with neck muscle bands that are loose or visible when making animated facial expressions.
Botulinum Toxin Smile Lift
This non-surgical procedure is a fast, simple, and highly effective way of changing the shape of the smile or lips. Instead of an “inverted bell shape,” this treatment will give you a beautiful horizontal smile. Dr. Deepak will make one small injection of the Botulinum toxin on each side of the jaw. Within the next five to seven days, you can expect an incredible change.
