Can Walnut Creek area patients use Botox injections in the lip area?
By Dr. Christine Lee
When patients in the Walnut Creek area hear of Botox, they are often interested in determining where it can be used. It is a common misconception that injections such as Botox are for the lip area. Dr. Christine Lee and her team of The East Bay Laser and Skin Care Center, Inc. want to help debunk these myths and provide their patients with accurate information.
What is Botox?First, it is important to know how Botox works. Botox is a neuromodulator. It reduces muscle contractions. By doing so in specific areas of the face, it can smooth out the skin after several days and reduce the appearance of dynamic folds and wrinkles. Dr. Christine Lee finds that Botox is beneficial in specific areas of the face including between the eyebrows, the forehead, and around the eyes to combat crow’s feet.
Does Botox work on the lips?Patients interested in lip augmentation will not benefit from Botox injections. The volume of the lips does not improve by reducing muscle contractions with a neuromodulator. Therefore, patients will benefit more from using dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid. This may include injectable brands such as Juvéderm, which is readily available at our practice.
