What is BOTOX®?
FDA approved in 2002, BOTOX® is a therapeutic protein solution that is renowned for its natural-looking results. This unique formulation is one of the most extensively tested treatments of its kind on the aesthetic market, and it is currently one of the most popular options for non-surgical wrinkle reduction worldwide. BOTOX is FDA approved for treatment of frown lines, forehead and crows feet.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
As the skin ages, two different kinds of wrinkles appear – static and dynamic. BOTOX® targets the dynamic wrinkles that develop in the forehead area as a result of repeated muscle contractions in the face over time, such as crows feet and frown lines. These visible signs of aging can cause you to look constantly tired or angry, but a treatment plan with BOTOX® can help rejuvenate your overall appearance.
BOTOX® is injected directly into the facial muscles, where the protein solution temporarily blocks nerve signals from causing dynamic wrinkles. This causes the skin to smooth, adding alertness back to your brow area.
Common areas that can be treated with BOTOX®:
These vertical lines form between the eyebrows as a result of repeated facial expressions, like frowning. BOTOX® reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, like frown lines, by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles and preventing them from contracting.
Also known as surprise lines, these lines are the horizontal lines found on the forehead that form as a result of repeated facial movement like raising the eyebrows or making surprised expressions. We can soften and reduce the appearance of forehead lines by using BOTOX® to relax the targeted muscles and reduce their ability to contract.
BOTOX Brow Lift
A temporary brow lift can be performed using BOTOX® to lift eyebrow. The muscles in the outer brow that can create a hooded or tired appearance. This minimally-invasive, non-surgical treatment can lift the brows for three to six months and has little to no downtime associated with it.
BOTOX Crows Feet
Crow’s feet are the fine lines and wrinkles that form around the eyes as a result of repeated use of the facial muscles due to facial expressions like smiling. We can use BOTOX® to treat these fine lines and reduce their appearance for up to four months.
BOTOX for Bunny Lines
Bunny lines are small diagonal lines that form right below the bridge on either side of the nose. These lines form as a result of repeated facial movements, like wrinkling your nose when you laugh. We can reduce the appearance of bunny lines by injecting BOTOX® into the affected muscles on either side of the nose, which causes the muscles to relax and softens the appearance of bunny lines for three to four months.
BOTOX for Gummy Smile
A “gummy smile” is a smile that shows a large portion of the upper gums and places more emphasis on the gums than the teeth, which can create an unbalanced smile. A gummy smile usually occurs as a result of a hyper-mobile upper lip, an upper lip that lifts more than usual when a person smiles, or an upper lip that lacks fullness. BOTOX® can be used to relax the muscles in the upper lip and create a more balanced and even smile.
BOTOX Masseter/BOTOX for TMJ
We can reduce the appearance of a square jaw by injecting BOTOX® in jaw or masseter muscle to relax it and reduce its thickness. Reducing the size of the masseter muscle will allow us to create a more angular appearance and make the face appear less square.
BOTOX lip-flip is the latest trend in lip augmentation for individuals who desire poutier and bigger lips in combination with Hyaluronic acids such as Juvederm, Restylane, Vollure and Volbella. BOTOX and Fillers each have different functions. Lip Fillers are for volumization of the lips, but BOTOX serves in this instance to augment the lip borders giving a more pouty appearance of the lips. This injection technique is done carefully with minimal doses of BOTOX in the superficial layers of the upper and the lower lip muscles.

BOTOX on Chin
BOTOX® can be used to reduce the appearance of creases and dimples found in the chin and can help reduce the appearance of a double chin. This injectable treatment helps relax the mentalis muscles in the tip of the chin and soften the appearance of chin dimples and creases. Results of this chin rejuvenation treatment can last for up to four months.
BOTOX for Hyperhydrosis
Excessive sweating of the hands, and armpits is known as Hyperhydrosis of the palms, and axilla which can be very stressful, interfering with one's usual daily activities and socially embarrassing. Many individuals have already tried anti perspirants and other over the counter products with very limited success. Fortunately BOTOX injection in armpits leads to dramatic improvement of excessive sweating. The injections are given in the superficial layers of the axilla in the close proximity of sweat glands. To localize the optimal area of injection a "starch test" is carried out prior to injection. Icing or other topical anesthetics or vibratory device might be used to provide comfort during injection. The result can last up to 6-8 months.
The length of the procedure performed at our office by Dr. Tamiry is 15-20 minutes. Patients can return to regular activities after the procedure with essentially no down time.
BOTOX for Neck Bands
Are you interested to improve or get rid of the annoying neck bands?
In the mid 40s neck bands also called platysmal bands start to appear with vertical lines in the upper and lower parts of the neck, pulling the lower part of the chin down, giving the impression of a "double chin". As the soft tissue of the neck looses volume over time these bands become thicker and stronger and more and more prominent. The platysmal bands are particularly obvious in photos or in people who are in front of the camera. Fortunately Botox for neck bands works to even out the the muscles that hold the neck up.
BOTOX is injected in mall doses directly into the platysmal muscles relaxing these muscles.This procedure is routinely done at HautSpa Medica by Dr. Tamiry. It takes about 15 minutes to complete and there is no down time.
