BOTOX (R) was the first product developed in a line of treatments known as neuromodulators. It has been used since the 1970s for various medical conditions in the head and neck including migraine headaches, difficulty swallowing (dysphagia), excessive sweating, sweating when eating, eye twitching, muscle spasms, overactive bladder, etc.. It works by inhibiting the action of muscles. For cosmetics this can be used to your advantage by selectively inhibiting muscles that cause wrinkles. Common locations for its use include the forehead, the area between the eyes (glabella), the forehead, the areas next to the eyes (crow’s feet or lateral orbital rhytids), the bands of the neck (platysmal bands) and the mid portion of the nose (bunny lines). Other areas it can be used include to soften the fine wrinkles around the mouth, the dimples of the chin that develop when you talk, and the muscles that cause frowns (depressor anguli oris) in order to help turn up the corners of the mouth.
There is a frequent belief that only women receive BOTOX. The truth is that many men who wish to improve their appearance and reduce fine lines and wrinkles receive BOTOX. Dr. Guy himself occasionally has BOTOX at his own practice!
“Dr Guy is amazing. I have referred all my friends and family to him. He takes the time to make you feel 100% comfortable in everything he does. I will never go anywhere else for my Botox and filler needs. My hubby also loves him and was so impressed with him that he is getting his eyes done this winter.”
