What is Botox and how does it work?
Botox is classified as a neuromodulator. It works by blocking impulses or signals sent by nerves that normally result in the muscles contracting, but are unable to fully contract while the neuromodulator is working.
What are the common uses for Botox, and are there special ways that Dr.Burke uses Botox?
Dr. Burke uses Botox to erase signs of aging created by overactive muscles (which create facial lines that make one appear older). He also uses it to reshape the face and slim the jaw line, masking assymetries (differences between the right and left sides). He also uses it to treat pain and headaches caused by overactive jaw muscles (bruxism).
Botox is commonly used to treat dynamic rhytids-facial wrinkles caused by normal movements such as laughing, frowning, looking surprised and concentrating.
Botox treats the 11’s
The lines in the glabellar region (between the eyes) are also known as the “11’s” also may be treated. When the 11’s are very deep, Botox alone may not be enough. In those cases, Dr.Burke combines Botox with a threadlift technique to further decrease them.
As the muscles relax, wrinkles are less prominent (between the eyes, forehead creases, crow’s feet around the eyes and lines above the lip and around the neck).
Are there other uses for Botox?
Botox can also be used to correct hyperactive muscles (tics) and a crooked smile.
Botox is used by Dr.Burke to minimize vertical lines that appear on the upper lip as one ages. Often, Dr.Burke combines this treatment with the use of selective volume fillers and a thread lift of the lip area.
Botox for Jaw Reshaping (Slimming)
In selective cases, Dr.Burke also uses Botox to reshape the face, jawline (jaw slimming), and upper neck.
Curious About the Cost for Botox?
Dr. Burke developed use of neuromodulators (Botox) for jaw and facial reshaping-resulting in decreasing jaw width and minimizing assymetry (nonsurgical jaw reshaping). This is also known as jaw slimming.
Patients have traveled from Asia, Europe, Australia, South America, and North America for these procedures. Our office is about 30 minutes from Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
Botox for Treatment of Bruxism
Dr.Burke also uses Botox in selective instances to decrease jaw pain from bruxism and migraines.
