Facial aging occurs in three distinct ways: environmental (UV damage), gravitational, and dynamic. Muscles of facial expression can cause premature wrinkling of the skin in the process of dynamic facial aging. The process begins in one’s 20s and is first seen in the upper third of the face. Fine lines develop around the eyes (crows feet), across the forehead, and between the eyes (glabella). These lines deepen with repeated contraction of these muscles of facial expression.
Botox (botulinum toxin) temporarily weakens these muscles of facial expression and eliminates the overlying skin wrinkle. The result is a refreshed appearance to the face with fewer wrinkles. An experienced Botox surgeon can deliver the product precisely to the muscle to eliminate wrinkles without making the patient look artificial or “frozen.”
Botox is the most common cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. Dr. Burns' filler and injectable practice has been recognized by Allergan with the Double Black Diamond Status and is ranked in the Top20 practices in the United States. As a Top20 practice, we have the experience and expertise to deliver the best results. Dr. Burns personally performs Botox and Filler injections and does not delegate these cosmetic procedures.
