Advanced Areas treated with Botox

Mentalis (chin) Botox

Deep chin grooves or puckering can be caused by a strong mentalis muscle. Botox can be used to relax this muscle, creating a smooth appearance to your chin.

Platysma (Neck)

This is a popular treatment where the muscle strands of the Platysma muscle cause some sagging of the neck. Treating the area with Botox relaxes the Platysma muscle and reduces the muscle strands running form the jaw and chin downwards.

Masseter (cheek) Botox

Large cheek muscles can give rise to a square or bulky looking jaw. In some people, treating this masseter muscle with Botox will soften the jaw line. It can also be helpful for people who grind their teeth.
