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 30s 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 in men is distinctively different than Botox in women.  The muscles of facial expression are more pronounced in men, therefore, more product is necessary to provide a good result.  The male brow aesthetics are different than the female brow which arches in the lateral third.  The male brow is straight and attempting to arch the brow can femineze the face.  For deeper lines between the brows, a filler can be used with botox to alleviate these lines which can make a male patient appear tired or angry.

Botox is the most common cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. We are a Black Diamond Provider for Allergan Botox. This is the highest achievable level and means that we have the experience and expertise to deliver the best results. Dr. Burns' Botox and Filler practice ranks in the Top20 in the United States with Allergan, maker of Botox, Juvederm, and Kybella.  Dr. Burns personally performs all Botox and Filler injections and does not delegate these cosmetic procedures. 

 We are proud to participate in the Allergan Brilliant Distinction program which rewards our patients for purchase of Allergan products such as Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, Kybella, Skin Medica, Latisse, and Natrelle Breast Implants.  Points are accumulated with each treatment and can be used for discounts on subsequent treatments.  The program also allows for better communication with our patients.
