Botox has been used for several decades treating a wide variety of non-cosmetic problems. It is highly effective in the upper third of the face, especially the “crow’s feet” and forehead and frown wrinkles. The injection takes just a few minutes and then the patient can return to work.
Although Botox can be used with variable success in the lower face, there are usually other techniques which are more effective. For patients whose jaws seem too wide, the muscle bulkiness can be reduced with judicious use of Botox.
Although Botox at first lasts about 3 months, many patients find with continued use that the effect lasts longer. Dr. Brown’s staff are pleased to discuss this with you.
