Not all wrinkles are equal. Some wrinkles are present at rest, and others are only visible during animation and expression.
Wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements—squinting, frowning, laughing, and smiling—are known as dynamic wrinkles and can become etched into the skin at any age. The more expressive you are, the more likely it is for wrinkles to form. But no matter where on the face a wrinkle exists and whether they’re the result of repeated movements, motions, and expressions, collagen and elastin loss, thin dermal skin, and a loss of hydration in the skin can all contribute to them, too.

Dr. Rheaume also performs an advanced technique to treat the jawline with Xeomin to create a slimming effect in the face. She also injects the masseter muscle to help with TMJ and teeth grinding. For her Asian patients that wish to slim their faces, injecting the lower face can help make it look thinner and smaller.

How much does Botox cost?
Botox varies in price depending on where you get injected and who injects you. The average price is based on units ranging from $10 to $25 per unit. One vial of Botox contains 50 to 100 units, and the forehead often requires 20 to 30 units to smooth it out.
Everyone is different, and what works best for one person may be too little or too much product for you. The right amount of an injectable will help to soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles without completely paralyzing them. If you’re looking to retain a minimal amount of movement in the area, ‘sprinkles’ can be done, which will allow you to maintain some expression. But a complete dose approach is best if you want little to no movement in the area. Schedule a consultation with our team to determine the best method for you.
