Botox

Botox for facial wrinkles

 

Botox is one of the most common procedures proven to be effective in the treatment of frown lines and crow’s feet, which are the cosmetic indications approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and horizontal forehead lines, offers predictable results, has few adverse effects, and is associated with high patient satisfaction. Wrinkles are formed by dermal atrophy and repetitive contraction of underlying facial musculature. Botulinum toxin is a potent neurotoxin that inhibits release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction. Injection of small quantities of botulinum toxin into specific overactive muscles causes localized muscle relaxation that smooths the overlying skin and reduces wrinkles. Botulinum toxin effects take about two weeks to fully develop and last three to four months. Dynamic wrinkles, seen during muscle contraction, yield more dramatic results than static wrinkles, which are visible at rest.

Botox Jaw Reduction

 

This procedure reduces the appearance of a wide jaw line by weakening the masseter/chewing muscles. It gives a softer angle to the jaw and a more pleasing facial shape.
Any person who has excessively wide jaws due to large chewing muscles and would like to slim his/her face is the candidate for this procedure. The most important factor is the thickness of your chewing muscle. You can easily determine if your chewing muscle is enlarged by biting down hard and feeling the outer jaw line near the ear. If the muscle appears to be very hard and enlarged when you clench your teeth, you may be a good candidate for the Botox Jaw Line Reduction.
When Botox is injected into the muscle it partially relaxes it. Underused muscle eventually loses its mass and reduces its overall size. The aesthetic effect of reducing overly wide jaw line is only truly appreciated in the right candidate. That is why Dr. Chontirot personally evaluates every candidate’s face in order to determine whether this procedure is right for the individual.

Underarm Botox

 

USA FDA approved Botox for use to treat excessive underarm sweating also known as primary axillary hyperhydrosis back in 2004. Botox for hyperhidrosis involves the injection of Botox directly into the skin where the excessive sweating occurs. Mostly within a couple of days after the hyperhidrosis treatment, people have shown remarkable results of up to an 75-85% decrease in excessive sweating in the problem area. Within a week of the treatment the sweating problem is resolved within the majority of the patients having this treatment. Bad body odor resulting from excessive sweating is also eradicated after the treatment as the two go hand in hand and by removing one sweating problem then the resulting body odor is also resolved.

Botox calf reduction

 

BOTOX calf reduction works much the same way as facial treatments just on a larger scale. By using BOTOX, our doctor can selectively deactivate muscles in the calves. Once these muscles are inactive, they will gradually become smoother with less definition. Patients should understand that this procedure does not restrict calf function, and all regular activities can be maintained.
While BOTOX generally produces very little discomfort, patients have the option of a numbing topical cream throughout the procedure. Patient comfort is very important to us and we will make sure that you have everything you need to make it a smooth and pain free procedure.
For patients who have already had BOTOX in their forehead, BOTOX calf reduction is very similar. Using a series of syringes, our doctors carefully inject BOTOX evenly across the gastrocnemius muscle, which is the main muscle in the calf responsible for bulkiness and definition. Using her precise approach to injecting BOTOX, this procedure can often be performed in under an hour.
