This is the area of the forehead. These lines are created by raising the eyebrows which causes horizontal lines in the forehead. In order to achieve balanced and natural results, the forehead is typically treated with frown lines.
Frown lines are created by repeated use of the muscles between the eyebrows. Typically expressions like frowning or squinting can cause these dynamic lines. Neurotoxin can temporarily stop the contraction of these muscles.
The masseter muscle is a facial muscle along the back of the jaw which plays a major role in chewing. Overuse of this muscle creates a square jaw line, creating a masculine characteristic. Neurotoxin can relax this muscle resulting in facial slimming.
Also known as teeth grinding, bruxism is associated with the masseter muscles and often times the temporalis muscle. Neurotoxin can relax these muscles resulting in significant relief from jaw soreness, tooth damage and headaches. This does not affect voluntary movements such as chewing or facial expressions.
Botox is FDA approved to treat chronic migraines, defined as 15 or more headaches per month. Botox is injected around pain fibers associated with migraines. This blocks the release of pain chemicals which cause migraines even before they start.
