Botox / Coretox for Wrinkles and Jaw line Treatment

Expression lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows and at the corners of the eyes gradually become deeply etched over the years, giving a rugged, aged appearance. Botox injections relax the muscles and eliminate expression lines.

Microbotox / Microcoatox is a method of injecting fine botulinum toxin. It can be used in areas where fine lines and wrinkles are a concern, improve skin texture and improve pores through sebum suppression.

For those with well-developed masseter muscles (like a square jaw), Botox can be injected to slim the muscles and create a shapely, contoured, small face effect.

Who is recommended for Botox / Coretox?

  • Those who are concerned about wrinkles that form when they move their facial expressions, such as when they smile or frown.
  • Those who have fine wrinkles around the mouth and chin.
  • Those with well-developed masseter muscles. (square jaw)
  • Those who are concerned about their gums showing when they smile.
  • Those who are concerned about the corners of their mouth drooping.

Indications for Botox / Coretox injections

Botox Injection_Wrinkles_Indication Sites
Indications and sites for Botox injections

Botox is not indicated for wrinkles that are already deeply etched. The treatment relaxes the muscles and improves wrinkles caused by facial expressions such as smiling or frowning, preventing them from becoming habitual.

It is recommended to treat wrinkles while they are still young. Even if wrinkles have already formed, they can be prevented from becoming deeper.

Flow of treatment

The actual Botox / Coatox treatment process is as follows. For more information on the formulation and needles used, see the ‘Botulinum toxin (Botox / Coretox) Treatment‘ page.

Medical consultation, injections and records

The injections are made by having the muscles moved to determine how the wrinkles are formed and the muscles being worked on.

All information about the injection site, depth and number of units is recorded in the medical record, along with photographs, so you can be assured of a second and subsequent treatments.

After 2 weeks (free touch-ups*)

The effects of Botox are maximal after two weeks. Muscle movement and wrinkle formation are examined to determine whether the treatment is being carried out in the correct area and scope, and whether too much or too little is being administered.

If the effect is insufficient, additional injections will be given free of charge. If the effect is too strong, injections of acetylcholine chloride, a botulinum toxin relief preparation, can also be given.

As the size and movement of muscles varies greatly from person to person and the effect of Botox varies from person to person, the area and number of units will be recorded in the medical record for the next treatment.

*Touch-ups are only applicable for wrinkle treatment and not for treatment of jaw line, hyperhidrosis or hay fever. Only the same area and one injection is free of charge (up to three injections of acetylcholine chloride, a botulinum toxin palliative). Please note that a separate re-visit fee is charged for each visit. After three weeks (or the day before if three weeks later is a holiday) after treatment, a fee will be charged.

*Because of the busy consultation schedule, it may not be possible to make an appointment if you make an appointment at short notice. We recommend that you make an appointment for two weeks later on the day of treatment, as you will still be charged if three weeks have passed without an appointment being made.

After 3-4 months

At this time, the effect of Botox is reduced.

Please allow a period of at least three months before scheduling another appointment. The injections will be performed again.

Photographs of Botox injections

These are cases of Botox injections at our clinic. Both photographs were taken with the patient putting maximum effort into their face.

Even if the wrinkles do not disappear when you put your maximum effort into your face, if the wrinkles are less likely to appear with the expressions you often use in your daily activities (smiling, frowning, looking up, etc.), it will be enough to prevent wrinkles. As unnecessarily high doses increase the risk of ‘unnatural facial expressions’ and ‘increased production of antibodies’, injections are first given at the standard dose for each area.
