Throughout our lifetime our faces create many expressions. As we age, the elasticity and collagen of our skin changes and these expression lines become etched into our skin and remain on our faces with or without expression. These lines are also referred to as ‘wrinkles’. The word wrinkle was once a dreaded word, but with the advent of neuromodulators (substance that relax muscles responsible for our expressions) we can diminish the appearance of wrinkles. In our society, the first product of its kind to come to market to control our wrinkles was Botox®. Botox® been joined by two other products whose mechanism of action is designed to do the same thing, Dysport®, and Xeomin®.
The most common place we see wrinkles are around the eyes, between our eyes, also known as our frown region, forehead lines, horizontal and diagonal lines along your nose, commonly referred to as ‘bunny lines’, fine lines around your lips (‘smokers lines’ or lines where lipstick bleeds into) and a marbled appearance some individuals experience to their chin. Neuromodulators can also reduce the appearance of a ‘gummy smile’ and can reduce a saddened expression at the corners of the mouth.
Neuromodulators (wrinkle relaxers) such as Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® play a strong role in a wide variety of uses over and above wrinkles. They can be used to provide a more open appearance to the eye, commonly referred to as a non-surgical brow lift. Neuromodulators can be used to treat excessive sweating in the underarm region. Others have a genetic predisposition to a strong jaw, with the appearance of an area of protrusion on either side of their jaw in a muscle known as the masseter, while others have large, overdeveloped calf muscles. Neuromodulators play a strong role in the treatment in all of these individual concerns.

You might consider a breast lift if you are interested in restoring a youthful contour to your breasts. While a breast lift can be performed at any age, it is recommended that this cosmetic surgery procedure be undertaken only when breast development has stopped. Childbirth and breast-feeding can have a significant effect on the size and shape of your breasts.
If you have lost considerable volume in your breasts, you may also want to consider having saline or cohesive gel breast implants inserted either prior to or at the time of breast lift surgery.

Botox not only helps with wrinkles, it actually makes you feel more relaxed as frowning causes tension.
