What Can BOTOX Cosmetic Treat?

  • Wrinkles and fine lines: BOTOX Cosmetic injections are widely used as a nonsurgical treatment for wrinkles and fine lines. These injections work by temporarily paralyzing certain muscles in the face, which helps to smooth out your skin. It can also be administered preventatively to delay the formation of lines and wrinkles.
  • Enlarged jaw muscles: The muscles in your jaw are like the muscles anywhere else in your body. They grow with repeated use and shrink due to inactivity.

  • Small lips: Dermal fillers are a good way to add volume to thin lips. Meanwhile, BOTOX Cosmetic can be used around the border of your lips to relax the muscles. Known as a BOTOX lip flip, this service can make your lips appear bigger by encouraging them to roll outwards slightly, without actually boosting their size.
