Because our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat as we age, the facial muscles work closer to the skin surface. Smile lines, crow’s feet, the 11s become more apparent. These physician-administered injections relax facial tension and dramatically reduce wrinkles and deep lines. Trade names you may recognize are Botox, Xeomin and Dysport.
This treatment works by directly inhibiting certain muscle movements which cause wrinkles and lines in the face. Dr. Ibrahim personally administers all injections with the smallest needle possible. Most patients feel a tiny pin-prick or nothing at all.
Typical areas we treat and improve include:
- Furrow between the eyebrows, that “eleven” set of vertical creases
- Forehead lines (we pride ourselves in not over-treating this area)
- Crows feet or squint lines
- Droopy corners of the mouth
- “Orange Peel” chins
- Smoker lines
