BOTOX® Treatment Areas Demystified


When we get to the age where we start thinking about BOTOX® Cosmetic , it’s normally due to those troublesome frown lines and worry lines that start to creep up on our brow. . . or sometimes the smile lines (or crow’s feet) that start to take shape on the outer corners of our eyes. What many don’t realize is these few areas are just where BOTOX gets started. The limiting factor in your options for BOTOX treatment areas can very often be the skill level of the injector you’re entrusting.

Today we’re featuring all of the little-known areas that BOTOX can treat when you see an injector like the vastly experienced PA-C’s at Skin Iowa, PC right here in Des Moines.

Let’s be honest, our skin woes don’t begin and end with the eleven lines, forehead lines and crows’ feet. Many suffer with neck banding, bunny lines, chin dimples and smokers’ lines, just to name a few. When we think about the many other areas that BOTOX treats, we liken it to buying that brand new fancy camera. When you first start out with it, you’re limited in your knowledge of the options, but once you get some experience under your belt (or take a photography class). . . the options seem almost limitless. The same is true with injectables like BOTOX. At Skin Iowa, PC, our PA-C Michon Leddy and Susan L. Schooler together have over three decades of expertise in the field of cosmetic enhancements and we are proud to offer the level of service to our clients that you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere. What exactly does that PA-C stand for? PA-C’s are Physician Assistants that were educated at a medical school, using the medical model and in most states are licensed by the same medical boards that confer physician licenses. The “C” means that the PA is certified by the National Commission of Certification of PA and let us tell you, that’s no small feat. What does this all mean for you? It means that when you receive treatment at Skin Iowa, PC, you’re receiving said treatment from a medical professional who has a depth of knowledge about your anatomy, which means they know precisely where to administer BOTOX to get the muscles to perform exactly the way they want.

Advanced BOTOX Injections: Now, on to the fun stuff. . . what else can I accomplish with my beloved BOTOX? The list really goes on; from treating gummy smiles, to square jaws (by narrowing the jawline to a feminine v-taper), neck banding, bunny lines, jowilng (down turned corners of the mouth), under eye lines, chin dimples, smokers lines, to the ever-popular lip flips, brow lifts and the Nefertiti neck lift. Feels like a whole new world, right? It’s true. . . and it’s something you likely won’t hear from the more inexperienced injectors, because they just don’t have the background knowledge and experience to use this nearly all-in-one injectable to its full potential.
