As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. What does your picture say about you? What about the impression you leave when someone first meets you? Does it say things like “put-together”, and “on top of the game”, or does it paint a less favorable image? Age lines – sometimes occurring prematurely – and excessive perspiration can keep people you meet from seeing the real you and reduce your confidence. Thankfully, these problems and more can be addressed safely and easily with Botox®. Manhattan dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Cameron Rokhsar can help.
What problems can be resolved with Botox®?
Botox®, or botulinum toxin, is a naturally occurring neurotoxin that has been safely in use for years to treat a variety of cosmetic issues. The most common and well-known uses of Botox® are the smoothing and removal of signs of aging such as forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes), and frown lines, but Botox® also has a number of other uses.
Whether due to genetics or facial muscular habits, some people are unhappy with a round face that they feel lacks dimension. Though rounded faces are most common in Asian cultures, they can also be caused over time by repeated clenching of the jaw or grinding of the teeth during sleep. This can lend to a thicker jawline and more masculine appearance. Botox® can help remedy this by relaxing the Masseter muscle, thus softening the jawline, softening cheek bones, and giving a more feminine appearance.
Botox® injections have also been approved for use in the reduction of excessive sweating. Localized injections in areas such as the underarms, hands, feet, and groin are used to inhibit the transmission of chemical signals to the brain that stimulate perspiration.
