Wrinkles and lines are formed by repetitive facial movements - think of smiling, frowning, squinting and even chewing.  Over time, the muscles remain contracted after losing the ability to relax - which is the causes of those fine lines.  A neuromodulator is injected into the muscles to force the muscles to relax.  This leads to wrinkles fading or even disappearing and also prevents any new wrinkles from forming.

While most commonly used for frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and lines around the eyes, it can also be used for many other purposes.  

Botox/Dysport for Masseter Muscles

Get your ideal jawline using wrinkle relaxers!

This treatment is designed for the masseter muscles on either side of the face, and results in a significant facial slimming effect by reducing the strength and size of the targeted muscle.  This treatment can also help significantly with headaches, teeth-grinding, jaw-clenching, and an array of other issues.  These injections help relax the masseter muscle by temporarily paralyzing the targeted muscle.  You are still able to chew, move your jaw and make normal facial expressions! When the muscle isn't being overworked it is able to shrink back to it's normal size, improving the proportions and balance of your face by giving your jaw a slimmer appearance.

Lip Flip

Lip Flips are common for those who want to create the appearance of bigger lips without adding any volume - or fillers.  Botulinum toxin (Botox/Dysport), is injected into the corners of your mouth and/or the edges of your lips.  The botulinum toxin relaxes the muscles around the upper lip which makes the upper lip "flip" upward and appear larger than normal. 

You may choose to opt for a lip flip if:

  • you want your lips to look fuller
  • you dont want lip fillers or a lip augmentation 
  • you want to reduce the appearnce of wrinkles
  • you have a "gummy smile" 
  • you want to boost your confidence 

Like wrinkle relaxers used in other areas of the body, the effects of the injection do eventually fade, but can last between two to six months.

Give your confidence the boost it needs with this simple 10 minute treatment!
