How it Works:

Botox™ is injected under the skin into the deeper, underlying muscles. Instead of directly targeting the muscles that control facial expression, it is injected into the platysmus muscle at the jaw line. This muscle, located in the lower part of the face, tends to create a downward pull. Injecting the Botox here cancels some of that downward pull, thus giving the cheeks and jowl a lift.

Botox™ injected in this manner also contracts an area of the skin’s pores. Smaller pores result in a smaller skin surface area. This tightens the skin, and makes it more stretched out over the face. This also creates some lift, but truly stretches out fine lines and wrinkles, making the skin smoother.

Another beneficial side effect of the Botox™ lift is reduced oil and sweat production in the skin. The procedure also reverses the inflammatory process that causes acne. Therefore, the Botox™ Lift also creates a matte, fresh powdered look that lasts from 3 to 4 months.

Recovery:

The Botox™ lift is truly a lunchtime procedure. All you need is 30 minutes, and you can go back to your daily activities.
