Facial Harmony  

As we age we may notice more pronounced lines and wrinkles.Botulinum toxin (botox) injections temporally reduce and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles. When injected the muscles will contract less and become less stiff, which allows for wrinkles to soften and relax. In 2011 a study was completed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons which concluded Botox was number one for minimally invasive procedures. Botulinum toxin has been around for several years, and is becoming more popular.

Cosmetic Botox Benefits
  • Reduces wrinkles & crow’s feet
  • Soothes frown lines
  • Reduce forehead crease

Cosmetic Botox can also reduce a gummy smile. A gummy smile refers to the excessive display of gum tissue when smiling. An injection of Botox in the upper lip can reduce the display of gum tissue.

What causes a gummy smile?
  • Overgrowth of the upper jaw
  •  Short upper lip
  •  Hyperactive lip: most common in females
  •  Overgrowth of gum tissue

Botox treatments can provide patients with a more aesthetic and beautiful smile. Ask our office about safe and effective facial harmony procedures. Schedule a consultation today.
