What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable treatment that corrects fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is a highly purified form of onabotulinumtoxin A, more commonly known as botulinum toxin type A, which temporarily dampens muscle activity in the injection site. This process is called neuromodulation. When used properly, Botox injections in Bloomfield Hills, MI can make you look and feel more youthful by reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles.

How Does Botox Work?

The active ingredient in the Botox formula is a neuromodulator that inhibits nerve signals from reaching muscle cells, causing the location to relax and preventing the skin from folding and creating wrinkles. Botox is different from dermal fillers, which reduce the appearance of folds and wrinkles by adding volume to the skin, stretching it out slightly and creating a smooth appearance.

In general, the greater amount of Botox used, the more substantial the results will be. Our Detroit-area injectors know precisely the amount and technique needed to achieve the most natural-looking results for your areas of concern. The number of vials used during a Botox treatment will also determine the cost of the procedure. 

What Areas Can Botox Treat?

Botox has been FDA-approved to be injected into many areas of the face, including to address smile lines, glabellar lines, and wrinkles around the eyes. Due to the delicate nature of many of the injection sites, Botox should only be administered by board-certified injectors with experience like the ones on our team at Envee Aesthetics.

Crow’s Feet

When you smile, laugh, and squint, the muscles around your eyes contract when, causing your skin to furrow or fold. Considering how thin and delicate the skin around your eyes is, it’s no wonder people in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan get crow’s feet even at a relatively young age. Botox injections help preserve a smooth look around the eyes, without affecting your facial expressions.

Frown Lines

The muscles between your brows contract when you frown or concentrate, causing your skin to fold or become furrowed over time. Treating these muscles with Botox procedures can make your frown lines temporarily look softer and smoother, so your resting expression looks less angry.

Forehead Lines

Your forehead contributes more than you may think to a person’s overall appearance and perceived age. When used to smooth forehead or glabellar lines, Botox can help men and women look years younger with a  subtle, simple technique.
