Botox Injections

Dallas Dermatology offers botox injections to patients looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Can Botox Help a Downturned Mouth?

Age and gravity can cause the mouth to turn downwards. In addition, the muscles responsible for tooth grinding can also cause premature drooping at the corners of the mouth. Fortunately, there is a safe and non-surgical solution to this common aesthetic concern– Botox. When injected into the Depressor Anguli Oris muscle, Botox lifts the corners of the mouth for a more neutral and pleasing “resting expression.”

Here at Dallas Dermatology Partners, we personalize Botox treatments to help patients achieve subtle, natural results. Restore your confidence along with the youthfulness of a cheerful lower face with high-quality dermatological care.

Botox for downturned mouth treatment

Botox injections may be appropriate for people whose mouth corners naturally drawdown at rest. This can also happen in younger patients with overactive Depressor Anguli Oris (DAO) muscles. If you want to address this, Botox can work wonders. The neuromodulator works by temporarily relaxing the downward pulling action of the DAO muscle.

This simple outpatient procedure has no downtime and lasts less than 15 minutes. The injections are not particularly painful, but patients can request a topical numbing cream if they are anxious.

Your dermatologist will inject the DAO muscles on either side of the mouth using a very fine needle and then apply firm pressure with a gauze pad to stop bleeding.

What to expect after the procedure

Botox around the mouth is a lunch-hour treatment with little risk of adverse side effects or complications. Most of our patients return to work or normal activities with nothing more than some mild redness. Bruising may develop but is easily concealed with mineral powder. We ask that patients avoid lying down for 4 hours after the treatment.

A mouth corner lift with Botox is a surprisingly quick procedure, but the results aren’t immediate. Instead, expect to see subtle improvements over the following seven days, with maximum effect after two weeks. During your follow-up appointment, our Botox Dallas dermatologists will determine if additional injections are needed.

How long do results last?

Botox for a downturned mouth can last up to five months, but this is dependent on your age, metabolism, and the dosage given. The majority of patients find that Botox results tend to wear off after three or four months.
Depending on your concerns, Botox may be combined with complementary treatments like dermal fillers for optimal results—for example, Juvederm and Restylane. These may be used along with Botox to elevate the corners of your mouth.

How To Treat Marionette Lines

Cosmetic injectables are improving every year with more treatments that safely minimize wrinkles, restore volume, and turn back the hands of time. When treating marionette lines, your dermatologist may suggest dermal filler, Botox injections, or a combination of the two.

Treating Marionette Lines: Botox or Filler?

Marionette lines are the creases that run from the outer corners of the mouth downward to the chin. Caused by a variety of factors, including aging, genetic disposition, lifestyle habits, and sun exposure, these lines may develop in your 30s or 40s.
When evaluating your concerns and determining the best treatment option, our doctors will consider your aesthetic goals, skin type and elasticity, and whether you have superficial or deep marionette lines.

Choosing the Right Injectable for Marionette Lines

Botox for marionette lines — Botox temporarily paralyzes injected muscles, reducing contractions that cause unwanted creases and lines. When administered by an experienced Botox Dallas injector, this neuromodulator reduces the movement of the muscle that causes marionette lines to form and creates drooping corners of the mouth. In most cases, Botox as a stand-alone treatment is only suitable for extremely shallow marionette lines or proactive wrinkle prevention.

Dermal fillers for marionette lines — Hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers are one of the most effective non-surgical treatments for marionette lines. Composed of a synthesized version of the natural substance our bodies produce to keep our skin supple and hydrated, HA-based fillers provide lasting volume and definition– visibly plumping out deep creases and folds. They come in a variety of densities and durations, allowing your dermatologist to select the right product for your specific needs.

Depending on the type of filler used and the amount injected, the results can last from 6 months to 2 years. During a dermal fillers Dallas consultation, we can outline the best treatment approach for your goals. Some of our preferred injectables for non-surgical volume restoration include Restylane, Juvederm Ultra Plus, and Radiesse.

Every patient’s needs and objectives are unique. A personal consultation with Dallas Dermatology is the best way to determine the best solution for your concerns– Juvederm or a Botox-dermal filler combination.

Can Botox Help Bunny Lines?

Botox is very effective at eliminating bunny lines that are more prominent when smiling. For many people, these diagonal wrinkles on the bridge of the nose are a bothersome reminder of age and collagen loss.
In the hands of a board-certified dermatologist and skilled injector, bunny lines can be treated before they become deeply etched in the skin.

Botox for Bunny Lines

With sun exposure and the passing years, the skin becomes less elastic as elastin and collagen are gradually depleted. In addition, repetitive facial movements while laughing, smiling, or squinting cause dynamic wrinkles like bunny lines to develop.
These tiny wrinkles that appear when scrunching up the nose are subtle at first but can become etched into the skin over time. When this happens, bunny lines become static wrinkles, noticeable when the face is at rest.
Regardless if you’re looking to soften bunny lines or prevent them from forming, Botox is a safe and effective solution.

What is the Treatment Like?

The injectable works by temporarily blocking signals that tell muscles to contract. When the Nasalis muscle is relaxed, the scrunch lines, or bunny lines, begin to disappear.

Botox treatment for this is non-invasive and well-tolerated by all patients. Here’s what to expect:

  • The skin is cleaned with alcohol
  • The patient is asked to scrunch up their nose and then relax to identify injection sites
  • Small, superficial injections are administered at three points
  • Light pressure is applied to prevent bleeding and bruising

The procedure is over in 15 minutes, and patients can return to work and their everyday routines.

Botox Aftercare Tips

For cosmetic purposes, Botox has a robust safety profile. The most common side effects are redness at the injection site and mild bruising. The beauty of this injectable is that you can go about your normal life after the treatment. However, patients are asked to avoid massaging the injected area for 3-4 hours post-procedure.

How Long Do Results Last?

The skin-smoothing effects of Botox should kick in 4-7 days after the injections, and results generally last three to four months, depending on patient physiology and the dosage.
After several bunny line treatments with Botox, the results should last longer– anywhere from 6 -7 months.

What is Baby Botox?

Looking to get a jump start on anti-aging or dip your toes in some discreet wrinkle-smoothing? Welcome to the world of “Baby Botox,” frequented by A-listers and social media influencers across the globe.

Baby Botox Explained

While its name raises an eyebrow or two, this isn’t a facial rejuvenation treatment for infants. Baby Botox is the practice of injecting micro-droplets of the neuromodulator across larger areas of the face. The key to this technique is a more superficial yet targeted injection that produces a more natural look. First-time Botox patients are excellent candidates.
If you want to diminish the appearance of superficial frown lines, crow’s feet, and the beginnings of forehead wrinkles without losing all movement in your face, then Baby Botox may be a perfect solution.

Ideal for Younger Patients

The primary goal of micro-dose, precise Botox injections is personalization– not erasing every crease and line on the face. The muscles aren’t completely immobilized but just relaxed enough to soften fine to moderate lines. When you smile, frown or squint, the muscles cannot contract with the same force, resulting in smoother skin. Your skin looks rejuvenated but in a subtle way that implies routine facials and quality beauty products.
Because smaller amounts of Botox are administered, Baby Botox is ideal for younger patients or those with lines that are not prominent. If you already have deep creases in the skin when the face is at rest, traditional Botox may be a more effective option.

Easy Way to Maintain Results

Baby Botox Dallas treatments can also be used as a maintenance strategy when dealing with the usual suspects like bunny lines, 11’s between the brows, and crow’s feet. Instead of waiting 5 months between treatment intervals, when Botox fully wears off, keep your skin smooth with mini Botox touchups every 4-6 weeks. Using just 25 percent of the standard unit dose, your dermatologist can help you maintain the look you want with a less-is-more approach.

Slow Down the Effects of Aging

Baby Botox is perfect for those looking to slow down the effects of aging and subtly tweak their appearance for a fresher look. By getting microdoses of Botox in your 20’s, the muscles are trained to relax, so wrinkles and lines are less likely to form when making normal facial expressions.

Baby Botox Benefits

Consider some of the advantages of Baby Botox for men and women:

  • Smooths wrinkles without a heavy or frozen look
  • Reduces the onset of wrinkles
  • Prevents existing lines from getting deeper
  • Muscle movement is retained
  • Less costly than traditional dosages
  • Produces a more natural appearance
