Botox

Most people believe Botox is a treatment mainly used for improving or removing facial wrinkles on women. However, Botox is also used to treat certain medical conditions such as muscle spasms, migraines, jaw tension and excessive sweating. Botox is a neuromuscular blocker which can limit the muscle contraction in the treatment area. The interference allows the muscle to relax, and the skin to smooth out, while improving the patient’s condition. Botox works well for these purposes and is performed on a regular basis in Beverly Hills.

Dr. Jonathan Sykes, director of facial plastics at the Roxbury Institute in Beverly Hills, remarked that Botox is now injected head-to-toe in patients during a recent interview. For example, Botox can improve the vertical bands in the neck caused by overuse of the platysma neck muscles. The reduction of muscle activity creates the appearance of a thinner neck. Botox is also used to reduce headaches and it can also be injected in the neck region to improve post-beard sagging skin.

Botox Treatments for Various Regions of the Body

The popularity of injections to the jawline, chest, abdominals and calves has increased lately. When injected into the calves, Botox can actually create a slimmer appearance where the denser muscle fiber causes the calf to appear disproportionate to the rest of the leg. The trapezius muscle, which covers most of the upper back and posterior of the neck, can cause a patient to look shorter and can cause some women to look more masculine. As women age, sun damage on the chest creates crepe wrinkles along the thin sheet of muscle covering the chest. Therefore, women opt for Botox injections in the chest region to help lessen or prevent wrinkles. Botox injected in the right place can help weaken certain muscles and also strengthen others. In addition, men often choose Botox injections along the jawline to slim down the face for better facial contour. No matter which area of the body is injected with Botox, it is important for patients to choose a board-certified doctor to ensure the safest and best possible results.
