Botox® injections are one of the most common cosmetic enhancements used today in relation to anti-aging, wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet and many other age related facial changes.
Botox® is a medicine that relaxes muscles by inhibiting the secretion of acetylcholine needed for muscle contraction. It has been used for the past (25) years to treat such medical conditions as cervical dystonia, TMJ, and other neuromuscular disorders. Botox® is the #1 non-surgical cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. The beautiful results speak for themselves!
Effective Wrinkle Treatment to Obtain a Youthful Appearance
The results of Botox® injections are to achieve a natural-looking, subtle result, and not necessarily to completely eliminate facial wrinkles. Botox® treats wrinkles in motion, sometimes called “dynamic wrinkles”. These dynamic wrinkles appear and become apparent when our facial muscles contract – such as when we smile or frown. Without making these expressions these wrinkles disappear when we relax those muscles. Using Botox® on various facial areas, or for eyebrow shaping or lifting, can create a dramatically youthful appearance at almost any age. You may also be experiencing static wrinkles that are present whether you animate your face or not even without facial muscle movement. Botox® injections can also “soften” static lines and help alleviate some of those wrinkles as well, but dermal fillers at times may be a better alternative depending upon the area of the face.

The physicians at SlimVision are trained as how to correct poor results from injections that may have been previously performed by others. We implement additional, advanced techniques to create a more natural appearance, particularly around the forehead region, to retain expression and animation when one speaks or reacts – so you don’t get that “flat-face look” Often we see clients with an unnatural, flat expression that was caused by physicians or practitioners who have used too much Botox®, or have injected it in the wrong places.
