BOTOX / JEUVEAU
SkinToxx Nashville, TN is proud to offer Botox and Jeuveau! This treatment softens and smooths the appearance of wrinkles. When injected into the skin, neurotoxins blocks the release of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine, which prevents the muscles from contracting. This allows the wrinkles to smooth out, giving the skin a more youthful appearance.

GLABELLA, FRONTALIS & CROW’S FEET
Treating the glabella, frontalis, and crows feet with Botox can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles in these areas, giving the skin a more youthful and rested appearance. The number of units of Botox needed for each person can vary, depending on factors such as the individual's muscle strength and the severity of their wrinkles. A trained provider will be able to assess the specific needs of each person and determine the appropriate amount of Botox to use.
LIP FLIP/ GUMMY SMILE
A lip flip is a cosmetic treatment that involves injecting a small amount of Botox into the muscle that controls the upward movement of the upper lip. By relaxing this muscle, the lip will flip up slightly, giving the appearance of fuller, more pronounced lips. This treatment can be an alternative to lip fillers for people who want to enhance the shape and appearance of their lips without adding volume. A gummy smile treatment is used to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile, which is when an excessive amount of the gums is visible when smiling. This treatment involves injecting Botox into the muscles that control the upward movement of the upper lip, which can help to lower the lip and reduce the amount of gum that is visible. This can create a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile.
A bunny lines treatment is a cosmetic procedure that is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the side of the nose, also known as "bunny lines." These wrinkles are caused by the muscles that control the movement of the nostrils, and they can become more pronounced with age or as a result of certain facial expressions. To treat bunny lines, a small amount of Botox is injected into the muscles that control the movement of the nostrils. This temporarily paralyzes the muscles, preventing them from contracting and causing wrinkles. As a result, the wrinkles on the side of the nose smooth out, giving the skin a more youthful and rested appearance.
A dimpled chin treatment is a cosmetic procedure that is used to reduce the appearance of a dimpled chin, also known as a "dimple chin" or "peau d'orange" (orange peel) chin. This condition is caused by the overgrowth of a small muscle under the skin, which can create a dimpled or uneven appearance on the chin. To treat a dimpled chin, a small amount of Botox is injected into the overactive muscle under the skin. This temporarily paralyzes the muscle, preventing it from contracting and causing the dimpled appearance. As a result, the chin becomes smoother and more evenly contoured, giving the face a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
A neck bands treatment is a cosmetic procedure that is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin on the neck. These wrinkles, also known as "neck bands," are caused by the contraction of the muscles in the neck, and they can become more pronounced with age or as a result of certain facial expressions. To treat neck bands, a small amount of Botox is injected into the muscles in the neck. This temporarily paralyzes the muscles, preventing them from contracting and causing wrinkles. As a result, the wrinkles on the neck smooth out, and the skin appears more youthful and firm.
A masseter treatment is a cosmetic procedure that is used to reduce the appearance of a square or broad jawline. This condition is caused by the overgrowth of the masseter muscle, which is responsible for chewing. Over time, this muscle can become enlarged, giving the face a square or boxy appearance. To treat a square or broad jawline, a small amount of Botox is injected into the masseter muscle. This temporarily paralyzes the muscle, preventing it from contracting and causing the jawline to appear square or broad. As a result, the jawline becomes more slender and contoured, giving the face a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance. This treatment can also help with TMJ disorders.
