Previously, Botox was used to erase frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead, crow’s feet on the eye corners, and lines on the upper lip. Now Botox can be used to rejuvenate skin, and slim down face and bulky legs!
Botox for facial slimming involves periodic injections of Botox directly into droopy muscles at the side of the face, which can contribute to an unappealing, square-looking jaw and boxy face shape. Botox injections can relax these muscles and reduce their bulk to yield a more pleasing, well-defined and slimmer facial shape. The same procedure can be applied to your calf muscles.
For skin rejuvenation, there is Meso-Botox or Micro Botox, pioneered by Dr Woffles Wu, plastic surgeon with Woffles Wu Aesthetic Surgery & Laser Centre. Small micro-doses of Botox are injected into the superficial layer of facial skin, causing pores to close and glands to tighten, resulting in a smoothening and lifting effect. Talk to your plastic surgeon or dermatologist for more information on these new Botox procedures.
