Botox Face-Lifting: 5 Years Younger in 30 Minutes!
Recently featured on National CTV, Global and Breakfast Television, Dr. Stephen Mulholland discusses and demonstrates how botox has gone from a product that is used to reduce isolated wrinkles to an injectable that is most often used in conjunction with fillers and lasers to lift the brow, mid-face, nose and jawline.
“Typically botox had been used to be injected into specific lines of the face in areas where there was excessive movement of facial muscles and animation. A more modern approach to the use of botox is as a brow lift, cheek lift and jawline lift product,” comments Dr. Mulholland.
“The face is a dynamic 'tug-of-war' that wages between those muscles that pull your brow, face and jawline down and the 'elevators' or lifting muscles of the face. For every muscle that can pull your face down, are one or two in that area that “pull or lift up” your brow, cheek or neck .
Understanding the anatomy of those 'pull down' muscles or 'depressors' means that advanced injectors can identify those muscles that are strong “pull down” muscles and, after isolating and injecting them leaves the muscles that 'lift up' the face, the elevators free to passively elevate the brow and face.
Over 60% of women and a large number of men over 40 years of age complain of droopiness of the brow, cheek or jawline yet do not want to undergo the expense or risk of a surgical excision procedure. For these patients botox injectable face lifting is proving to be an excellent option.
With the botox face-lifting procedures, non-surgical brow, cheek, jawline and botox face-lifting and not just wrinkle reduction, is becoming the number one reason patients will now visit their injection physician.
By combining botox to uncouple the depressors of the brow, with selective fillers, and fractional lasers more and more patients can look 5 years younger in just 30 minutes. Botox face-lifting is quickly advancing and growing in popularity and may become the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure for men and women alike.
