A 'gummy smile' is described as an excessive amount of gum on show when smiling, which to some clients is cosmetically undesirable.
Botulinum toxin (Botox) can be injected into the muscles that elevate the upper lip, causing them to relax and reducing the amount of gum on show.
Masseters are the big chewing muscles on the side of the jaw and when they are overused they can become very bulky, causing a wide lower face. People who suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding) commonly have overactive masseters which can not only cause a wider face but also headaches, jaw pain and worn teeth.
Botulinum toxin (Botox) can be injected into the masseter to relax it which in turn helps with clenching/grinding, migraine relief and can lead to slimming of the jaw.
NEFERTITI NECK LIFT
The ‘turkey neck’ appearance occurs as we age due to loss of muscle tone, skin elasticity and subcutaneous fat, as well as the gravitational descent of the soft tissues of the face. The neck becomes saggy and wrinkly with a prominence of the muscular bands that extend from the jaws to the collar bones and exaggeration of the jowling effect in the lower face.
Botulinum toxin (Botox) can be injected into the neck muscle (platysma), allowing the opposing muscles to elevate the lower face. This enhances the jawline, improves the appearance of jowls and softens lines on the neck.
Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) is a common problem that can cause great inconvenience and social embarrassment. This can have detrimental effects on self-confidence and the deprive people of the freedom to enjoy social activities.
Botulinum toxin (Botox) can be used to treat excessive sweating of the armpits by blocking the stimulation of sweat glands, reducing the amount of sweat produced.
This treatment has been shown to reduce the amount of sweat produced by up to 90%. Clients regain the ability to live happy and active lifestyles without the stress and anxiety that excessive sweating can cause.
