Your facial expressions are a natural part of your daily living and well-being. However, years of smiling, frowning, squinting and laughing can take a toll on your appearance, causing unsightly wrinkles, fine lines and deep creases. For those who want to address the signs of mild to moderate facial aging, without surgery, Botox remains the most preferred solution. Botox is an injectable composed of a purified protein. These proteins temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. When these overactive muscles around your forehead, eyes, brows and mouth are relaxed, facial lines can soften or disappear, creating a revitalized or more youthful appearance. When used correctly by a skilled and licensed physician, Botox and other types of neurotoxins can be an effective, minimally invasive treatment for the following facial concerns:

Your face is the first part of the body that people see and should be taken care of over a life time. That being said, we all want to make a great first impression and look our best at all times.

Even having a little change made to your nose can give you a whole new look, literally putting your best face forward.
Bunnies are cute little animal with twitching noses and whiskers. When someone describes your face as having bunny lines, it's not so cute and can make you take a second look in the mirror. These diagonal lines on the side of your nose resemble a bunnies' creases around their nose, and nobody wants that! You typically acquire them naturally from smiling and squinting and occur with age.

There are many factors that can contribute to the dreaded wrinkles and lines of facial aging. Over time, the elastin fibers and collagen in your skin weaken. After years of squinting, laughing, frowning or worrying, your facial skin struggles to bounce back like it once did, resulting in creases and lines around the eyes, eyebrows and mouth. The signs of facial aging can be considerably noticeable between the eyebrows or in the glabella region. Furrows, wrinkles or lines in this area are often called the “11’s,” and it can make one look tired, angry or stressed. Fortunately, advanced furrows and other dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated facial movements can be treated non-surgically using Botox.
Creases on our foreheads often develop over time from our repeated facial expressions. These forehead lines can create an aging affect, making us look older than we should. Those lines can vanish quickly with non-surgical chemical treatments guided by the expertise of our plastic surgeon, Dr. Stong. At K Spa, our patients’ desires and best interests are always put first. You can count on us to provide a comprehensive view of all your options for forehead line treatment.
Smiling, laughing, squinting in bright sunlight – these facial movements are common and repetitive. If you have smile lines that seem to be permanently etched into your face, you probably enjoy life. But you may not enjoy those crow’s feet lines that have developed at the corners of your eyes as a result. Thankfully, there is a simple and quick solution to rid yourself of those unwanted creases. At K Spa, we recommend Botox injections to smooth out the smile lines and regain more youthful-looking eyes.
A woman’s eyebrows have a significant impact on her overall look. Getting the shape as you would like it, particularly the outer line position is important. A simple and quick brow lift can enhance your brow alignment or rejuvenate a brow line that is beginning to droop. We use Botox for our chemical brow lifts because of its ability to be specifically targeted to create the desired effect for your brows.
No one wants to look like they have a permanent frown. Yet, that can be the result when the muscles at the corners of your mouth pull your smile downwards. Thankfully, you can get those frowning muscles to relax and quit pulling downward, quickly and easily. At K Spa, we use Botox for corner of the mouth lip lifts. This small injection, placed strategically in the right muscle, will turn off the frown and give your mouth a natural, even look, making it easier for your happy smile to shine through.
Everyone has a little something about their facial features they would like to change. For some, it is the look of their smile and how their lips frame their mouth. If you’ve always felt that your smile shows too much of your gum line, rather than just your teeth, there is a solution. The look of your smile is controlled by the small facial muscles around your mouth. By injecting a neuromodulator chemical, like Botox, with strategic placement in those muscles, we can actually change to positioning of your lips around your mouth. We can lower the upper lip line to hide more of your gums.
As you age, you may notice the vertical muscle bands in your neck becoming more noticeable and pronounced. These muscle bands in your neck are in constant use, which causes them to develop in prominence because of continual exercise. At the same time, your skin loses elasticity as it ages. The two combined cause the aging appearance in your neck.
Botox injections can be used to improve many facial features and using it for chin dimples is growing in popularity. As with the use of Botox in the brows, forehead and lips, the chemical helps relax and smooth muscles to minimize creasing in your chin. By strategically targeting the specific muscle that is creating the dimple, the Botox will relax the muscle, allowing the dimple to fill out and provide a smoother look to your chin.
