Neuromodulator injections (botulinum toxin type A) have smoothed away dynamic lines and wrinkles for over thirty years. If an individual starts treatment early enough, neuromodulators can also prevent lines from developing in the first place. Most individuals know that these injections can relax frown lines to give a happier, more rested appearance, but many are not aware of other areas on the face and neck that may benefit from treatment with anti-wrinkle injections from our Toronto-based Gidon Aesthetics & MediSpa practice.
Horizontal forehead lines are caused by the movements of the forehead muscle, specifically the frontalis muscle, that enables you to raise your eyebrows. The repetitive surprised expressions eventually cause the creases to appear. A small amount of neuromodulator can soften the lines without causing brow heaviness.
A small amount of neuromodulator can be injected near the end of the eyebrows for a lifting effect. It can help to open up the appearance of the eyes.
Constant smiling and squinting can lead to etching of fine wrinkles or crow’s feet into the outer corners of the eyes. With everyday activities, the muscles around the eyes are repeatedly being used and the skin starts to crinkle. This common concern is best treated with neuromodulators.
Scrunching your nose while squinting, smiling, and sniffing can cause diagonal creases at the sides of the nasal bridge. These bunny lines are not cute and often occur together with frown lines. A small amount of neuromodulator injected on either side of the nose is the most effective way of preventing these wrinkles.
Puckering, whistling, smoking, and drinking with a straw can cause lipstick lines to develop around the mouth. Tiny amounts of neuromodulator can relax the puckering muscle and can give a pleasing lip flip.
Neuromodulators prevent the muscles around the mouth from pulling down the corners and give your face a more positive, happier appearance at rest.
The puckering movement of a strong chin muscle pulls up the overlying skin and causes the formation of dimples. The chin can be injected with neuromodulators to relax and smooth these dimples.
These muscles occur above the angle of the jaw. They contribute to clenching or teeth grinding. They can enlarge and cause an undesired square appearance of the face. Neuromodulators can alleviate the clenching and grinding and can also result in slimming of the face with a more oval appearance.
Neuromodulators can also be used on the neck to reduce overly prominent bands or cords that pull down the jowls. The result is a tighter, smoother neck.
