Infamous Crow’s Feet
Crow’s Feet are a highly common concern among both genders, as manifested as deep-set wrinkles etched within the corner of the eye causing an old expression, far more pronounced on this skin. Frequently, they occur middle age but can be present earlier in people with unhealthy lifestyles, genetic reasons or overexposure to ultraviolet rays. As we age, though the natural elasticity of the skin is lost, causing many patients to form the infamous Crow’s Feet.
Botox treatment for Crow’s feet is one of the significant reasons why people seek to have injections, due to the fantastic results seen in a myriad of patients. Botox injections work fast relaxing underlying muscle activity, before complete relaxation within a couple of days. The results are phenomenal with years sliced off the patient, one study in 2016, assessed 1,362 participants for Botox treatment reporting that it can last up to four months. We also see a similar experience with our patients, which is we tend to recommend follow-up appointments in the future to target the same area or different problem areas. Recovery is straight forward with little need for anaesthesia, it squeezes nicely into your lunchtime hour and should be able to return home with few side-effects.
Furrowing Frown Lines
Frown lines are highly prevalent from the effects of ageing and appear as knitting of the tissue between the eyebrows. Years of eye squinting and facial expressions causes repeated contraction of the muscles resulting in fine lines and deep-set wrinkles. For many patients, this causes them to appear angry or sad, often representing as unappealing appearance. Ultimately, patients feel lower self-esteem and are unhappy with their appearance. Botox injections are highly effective for smoothening out the skin, giving a younger and youthful look.
Squeezing a session neatly into your schedule, Botox injections can take roughly thirty minutes with one of our skilled cosmetic experts. Since many patients are often highly expressive, then treatment with Botox can easily target these worry lines. Due to medical advancements of Botox practice, we can make you look natural with a relaxed face, unlike the previous saddened expression. Additionally, regular top-ups of Botox injection are highly effective in maintaining this look well into your ageing years.
Relax, Don’t Sweat It
Excessive sweating is highly prevalent, affecting nearly 2% of adults, with men being more commonplace than women. Many see it as a problem because it feels unnatural, causes societal concerns and ultimately lowers self-esteem. Some people have genetic issues which makes them more prone to sweating with overactive sweat glands. Annoying damp patches of sweat under the armpits are almost always noticeable by others in the workplace or at special events – causing a great deal of concern for the patient.
At Juvea, we understand that excessive sweating, otherwise known as hyperhidrosis can be a real damper on the mood. This is why we use Botox injections to lower the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter or chemical produced by the body responsible for promoting activation of sweat glands. Botox injections can be injected directly into the armpits, palms of the hand or even soles of the feet. Saliently, we notice the effects of Botox almost instantly, with many patients feeling a great deal of satisfaction after just one treatment. After a few months Botox may wear off, which is we are happy to give additional treatment sessions to ensure your sweat glands are controlled.
Smile Like You Mean It
A gummy smile, known because, in patients, they exhibit excessive gingival display, or abnormal amount of gum compared to teeth. Highly unappealing, causing a lack of self-esteem and lower your confidence. Medically it is caused by the hyperfunction of the upper lip elevator muscle or by vertical growth of the bone of maxilla. It is believed to be the cause of genetics, with nearly 14% of women and 7% of men exhibiting unnatural gummy smiles. However, statistically many are seeking alteration of the gummy smile, with a report of 569,160 gingivectomies performed in 2005 according to the American Dental Association Health Policy Institute.
With Botox Injections, you can finally smile like you mean it, without the embarrassment, or the lack of confidence. Botox injections have been highly effective in improving a patient’s gummy smile by targeting the upper lip elevator muscles. By paralysis of these muscles, it inhibits the contract of the upper lip when smiling and prevents a gummy smile. In contrast to surgical procedures, it is highly effective and less invasive, certainly less expensive. Additionally, the effects tend to last as long as six months with further recurring treatments in the future, to keep you smiling.
Unfeminine Wide Jaw
A wide jaw can be seen as unattractive by many women, typically presenting as a sizeable square-framed jaw, normally appeasing in a man, not a woman. Usually, the result of genetics, it is caused by an overgrowth in the jawbone, which can develop as by-product of the condition acromegaly. However, wide jaw can be result of oversized muscle in the face, such as the masseter muscle, which grows through exercising the jaw or grinding the teeth.
Botox injections are highly beneficial for suffers who are unhappy with the physical appearance of their jaw. Unlike surgical intervention, which is highly invasive and may pose further risks, injections can be injected into the masseter muscle reduce consistent contractions of this muscle. Ultimately, this can aid in the physical appearance of the jawline, giving a more desirable feminine look, highly appreciated by women with wide jaw.
Frantic Forehead Lines
Forehead lines are generally present as the results of ageing and tired appearance of the face. Affecting both genders, one study reported a higher presence in patients who were more stressed than average. It appears our face, shows the signs of stress and ageing – over time. Another issues it that some patients can have more forehead wrinkles at an earlier age, causing deep-set wrinkles, unappealing to the eye.
This is why many seek Botox injections at Juvea because, with our expert training, we feel confident in being able to rejuvenate your forehead. Botox temporarily paralyses the muscles of the brow normally contracting abnormally, to promote smoother skin and more desirable appearance, pleasing to the eye.
