While a smile creates a positive overall impression, your eyes are said to be the window to your soul. To make sure that this window does you justice, you should ensure it receives the framing it deserves. Why not pamper your face and smooth out those surrounding wrinkles with the use of BOTOX and dermal fillers?
How it’s done
BOTOX is injected into specific frown-muscles in the forehead to block their nerve impulses. This reduces wrinkle forming muscle activity for up to four months. BOTOX can also be used to improve a gummy smile by relaxing the muscles above your lips, which will result in less gums appearing when you smile. Another use for BOTOX is to help relax the masseteric nerve, which in turn helps remedy teeth grinding.
Similarly dermal fillers, which consist of a substance naturally found in the body, can be injected to smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose for up to a year. They provide a ‘plumping effect’, making the injected area rise to the same level as the rest of the skin. This procedure is quick, almost pain-free, and with mostly minimal side effects such as temporary bruising you’ll be ready to face the world in just two to three days!
