If you’re considering Botox® in Hove keep reading the article below. At Azure Aesthetics our most popular non surgical cosmetic treatment is clients requesting Botox(R) to the frown and forehead lines and also the laughter lines (Crow’s feet). At our Hove clinic we love educating our clients on other uses of Botulinum Toxin Type A that they may not have considered.
1. Lipstick or Smoker’s Lines
Tiny doses of anti-wrinkle injections can be precisely placed above the top lip to smooth out fine lines. It’s critical to find an expert injector when having this procedure carried out as placing too much or in the incorrect location can make it feel like you have speech difficulties and can affect your ability to do things such as drink through a straw! Often we recommend that this treatment is complemented with dermal fillers however this can be discussed at the consultation appointment.
2. Jawline and neck lift
Placing Botox® along the jawline and down the muscles that run vertically down the neck, enables us to improve the definition of the jawline by creating a ‘lift’.
3. Jaw slimming
If you clench or grind your teeth excessively during the day or when you sleep it can lead to hypertrophy of the masseter muscles. This can lead to a square looking jawline. Over repeated treatments Botox® can be added to these muscles which will help give a slimline jaw appearance.
4. Chin dimpling
An overactive mentalis (chin) muscle can cause the chin to appear dimpled. This is especially apparent when the lips are puckered. Botox® can be placed into the mentalis muscle to help reduce the over activity giving a much smoother look to the skin overlying the chin.
5. Downturned corners of the mouth
Often people who have overactive chin muscles also have strong muscles that pull the corners of the mouth down. This often leaves you looking like you are constantly sad. By placing Botox® in the muscle either side of the corner of the mouth, it reduces the downward pull, in turn leveling or up turning the corners of the mouth. Again this treatment is often offered in conjunction with the placement of dermal fillers to provide support under the corners of the lips.
6. Gummy Smile
Are you conscious of how much gum line you show when smiling? Has this stopped you from smiling in photos or in social situations? At our Hove clinic we can add a drop of Botox® either side of the base of the nose can relax and drop the lip line to reduce the amount of gum on show when you smile above your top teeth. Dr Bejal is also qualified as a dentist so knows exactly how much of your teeth and gums should be on display and will be able to advise appropriately.
