Botox for wrinkles, lips, necks and more….

I have been using Botox™ for close to 16 years now and have successfully applied it to not only erase forehead  and eye region wrinkles, but also to improve the oral area and neck. By strategically injecting small amounts of Botox™ into the upper lip I can help curl out the upper lip by emphasizing the “white roll” or vermillion border as well as soften the stubborn wrinkles there. Also I can elevate the otherwise sad, downturned corners of the mouth by injecting into the depressor anguli oris muscle (DAO) and produce a minor facelift by injecting the platysma muscle of the neck.

The chin can also by smoothed out by ridding it of that aging cobblestone appearance when grimacing, while pore size can be reduced by selectively placing Botox™ into the dermis of the skin only. With this latter technique (when injected into the forehead), the patient can still move their brows but their wrinkles are vastly reduced as well as their pore size- that frozen look is avoided which is especially important for my actor patients. Xeomen™ is a new substitute for Botox and has a number of advantages.

ZenTox™East meets West cosmetic treatment

For the last three years, I have been  grafting certain concepts of Oriental philosophy and medicine onto my Occidental plastic surgical practice. Some  of these  chimeric treatments have really resonated with my patients, one especially in particular. This involves the simultaneous application of hot and cold jade stones during my administration of Botox ™(botulinum toxin type A.). Alternatively, this concept could also be used for  injections of Dysport™ and Xeomen™,  both new FDA approved paralytic substances for cosmetic use. I have coined  Zen-Tox as a readily identifiable term describing  the novel use of distraction from pain via temperature.
