Contraction of facial muscles can lead to noticeable wrinkles, such as “elevens” between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” near the outer eyelids. Dr. Riske and Dr. Mettu specialize in the use of BOTOX® and other injectables, such as Xeomin® and Dysport®, to decrease the appearance of such lines and wrinkles.
These injectables are helpful in targeting, amongst other areas of the face, “crow’s feet,” “elevens” between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, and platysmal bands on the neck. Because wrinkles are caused by muscle contraction, BOTOX®, and other similar injectables work by weakening muscles and thereby decreasing wrinkles. The result is a more youthful appearance.
