Where are all the areas that Botox can be injected?

Botox, is mainly used to smooth forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet, it’s becoming an increasingly popular treatment for sweating, to prevent grinding your teeth at night, Masseteric Muscle to deliver a softer face shape and lines in the neck (called neck bands). Read on to learn about different places Botox can be injected:

Botox for Sweating

Sweating: Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. It refers to any abnormal sweating, such as sweating when it’s not hot. People who sweat excessively often soak through their clothing and have dripping sweat. Regular antiperspirants don’t work well for patients with this condition. Botox injections are a new treatment option for people with hyperhidrosis. You may be a candidate for Botox if your sweating fails to improve with prescription antiperspirants. Botox has been FDA-approved for people who sweat excessively from their armpits. It may also be used to reduce sweating in other areas, such as the hands, feet, and face. Hyperhidrosis can also manifest in the hands and feet. Injecting the palms and soles works to block the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. Gita, our Nurse Practitioner, will effectively dilute the Botox to stop the hyperhidrosis but not freeze your muscles.

Neck Botox

Before getting a neck lift for the skin banding that occurs as we age, consider trying Botox first. The Platysma muscle is located in the neck. As we age, it begins to tighten, forming prominent lines at the front of the neck. When these vertical bands in your neck become visible, you could be a good candidate for a non-surgical neck lift with Botox. The procedure is very quick and painless, with excellent visible results that last up to 6 months. It’s an effective treatment and upkeep of treatment for as many as 3 times a year.

Masseteric Muscle Botox

The ideal female face is perceived as delicate, smoothly contoured & oval shaped. A square jawline seen more commonly in Asians, widens the lower face and is considered masculine . In most patients, the square lower jawline is created by masseteric muscle hypertrophy.

Hypertrophy of the muscle leads to a square face and a broad jaw which is aesthetically not pleasing to most people. Botulinum toxin is injected into the enlarged masseter muscle to reduce its size giving a more oval and slim look to the face. The best results are seen only 6 to 8 weeks after the neurotoxin is injected unlike the other cosmetic indications where the results may become evident as early as even 24 hours.

Forehead Botox

Thanks to stubborn horizontal lines and expression wrinkles, the forehead is a common place to receive Botox injections. The FDA has only approved certain sites on the forehead for Botox injections. These include horizontal lines across your forehead, as well as the glabella (the “11s” between your eyes). Even though they’re approved, treatments still require caution. Using too much Botox in the forehead can cause long-lasting cosmetic damage. You should always seek out experienced professionals

What’s The Deal With Cosmelan?

Cosmelan is the answer to dark spots and hyper pigmentation, especially on the face. These discolorations are an aesthetic concern that most of us are facing, as we age. Instead of covering your face with heavy make-up or foundation, return your skin to its natural tone. The Cosmelan depigmentation treatment, originally developed in Spain, is very effective. The treatment targets pigmentation and melasma to soften those areas and minimizes pores.

Cosmelan improves your skin tone in a noninvasive safe manner. The process provides amazing results that other treatments can’t replicate. It’s very effective for all types of melasma. The procedure is quick and easy. The product is compatible with all skin types. The light peeling effect rejuvenates and increases collagen in the skin. Treatments can start and be used all year round. As a bonus, it’s also effective for acne patients.

These are the Cosmelan steps, according to their website:

  1. The specially formulated pigment-reduction activating mask (Cosmelan I Mask) is applied to the skin and left on for 8-10 hours. This is in great part dependent upon the amount of pigmentation as well as your skin sensitivity levels This prolonged “wearing” of the mask is a key component in stimulating the fastest response. We will apply the Cosmelan I Mask at the office.
  2. Once the development and action time is complete, you may wash the mask off. The intensive action ingredients in Cosmelan include hydroquinone and retinoic acid. Hydroquinone will staunch the pigmentation cycle while retinoic acid encourages quick cell turnover. This helps you to more quickly shed brown patches and discoloration. The combination ingredients are an excellent combination which has been shown to provide a superior removal of old pigment and suppression of new pigment.
  3. Your At-Home Cosmelan Program will consist of active-ingredient products you will use on a consistent basis to further improve pigmentation problems and prevent excess pigment formation. Your maintenance cream, Cosmelan II, will be used on a ongoing basis. This special pigment control cream contains ingredients such as Kojic Acid, Phytic Acid, Ascorbic Acid and a protective agent, Titanium Dioxide.
  4. Cosmelan At Home Instructions: Active ingredients include hydroquinone, retinoic acid, azelaic acid, kojic acid, arbutine, phytic acid and ascorbic acid. The Cosmelan® Depigmentation action mechanism is based on the inhibition of tyrosinase, a basic enzyme responsible for the melanin formation process. Several of the substances present in the Cosmelan formula act by blocking this enzyme.

What To Expect

Within a week, patients will notice skin blemishes beginning to fade, and a brighter complexion is breaking through. After a couple weeks, the skin will take on a shiny, healthier glow. These results will continue to improve over the fourth or fifth week, when the full benefits of a Cosmelan Peel can be seen.
Patients who commit to a daily routine will see the smooth results from the Cosmelan Peel last for many months to come. The skin will be delicate and sensitive the first two weeks after treatment; prolonged sun exposure should be avoided and a full spectrum sunscreen should be worn at all times. We recommend the Sun-Shield Matte sunscreen, from Obagi.

According to our experience over the last 16 years at Neu look Med Spa, Cosmelan is the best for peel for high pigmentation and melasma. It corrects overproduction of Melanin and over powers the appearance of new dark spots. The dedication of the patient to the treatment plays a large role in overall lasting effects of Cosmelan. The product must be used as directed by Gita, our Nurse Practitioner, at Neu Look Med Spa and follow up visits must be scheduled to achieve the best lasting results.
