Botox is a versatile tool for cosmetic treatments that appear natural and can be done quickly during an in-office appointment.

Expert Physicians worldwide use Botox for varied treatments. For more information on safety, check out Botox Has a Surprising Number of Cosmetic Uses . Please remember that individual results will vary, and speaking directly with a physician is the best way to determine if these treatments are right for you.
1. Hyperhidrosis Treatment
Hyperhidrosis is defined by the American Academy of Dermatology as a medical condition that causes excessive sweating. The areas most affected by this are the underarms and hands. For those who suffer from it, the constant worry of embarrassing stains and/or odors is something they deal with every day. However, there is a way to make the sweating more bearable using Botox. During a Hyperhidrosis Treatment, Botox injections are used to temporarily block the nerve signals to sweat glands, leaving the affected area dry for up to 6 months with one treatment. If you are looking for a permanent reduction of underarm sweat, odor and hair, miraDry offers an excellent treatment for everyone looking to ditch the harsh chemical deodorants for naturally sweat-free, odor-free and hair-free underarms.
2. Non-Surgical Jaw Reduction
During this procedure, Botox is used to soften the appearance of the hypertrophied masseter, or jaw muscle. Non-Surgical Jaw Reduction can offer facial contouring, a slimmer looking jawline, and may even help to reduce bruxism or teeth grinding.

3. Gummy Smile Reduction
A “gummy smile” occurs when excessive gum is shown during a smile. The standard measurement is anything more than 4mm of gum exposed while smiling. Botox is used by an expert physician to relax the upper lip elevator muscles which leads to less visibility of the gum line. While it is off-label for Botox, a study published in 2014 by the Aesthetic Surgery Journal found that it was a safe and effective treatment. Botox treatment for Gummy Smile Reduction must be maintained every 3-4 months, but it is a cost effective option next to surgery. A cosmetic dermal filler can be used to increase the volume of the upper lip along with Botox for some individuals with a thin upper lip.
4. Neck Band Treatment
Necklines tend to show the signs of aging a little faster than the face due to thinner skin and less subcutaneous fat. Sun exposure can further exacerbate the aging process, and we all know that sun is in no short supply in Texas. Botox can be used to soften both the vertical neck ridges and the horizontal neck wrinkles affected. To see before and after pictures of Neck Band Treatments done by Dr. Malik, Click Here .
5. Chin Wrinkle Reduction
Botox is a fantastic option for expressive wrinkles such as the ones that occur on the chin. Chin Wrinkle Reductionrequires extensive skill to ensure that the correct amount of Botox is administered to keep the chin looking soft and natural without affecting your speech and smile. While this is not a permanent solution, Botox is easily touched up in following weeks to make the effects last longer.
6. Liquid Facelift
