There is now a new method of curing forehead furrows and crow’s feet known as Botox in Sacramento and Dysport.
The treatment is radically different from any used for cosmetic enhancement and is useful in treating wrinkles caused by the overuse of facial muscles. These muscles of facial expression, with repeated use over the years, cause wrinkling in the overlying skin. Elimination of the muscle activity removes the forces on the overlying skin allowing the wrinkle to smooth out and prevent the progression of the wrinkling process.
Lines from the procerus and corrugator muscles – the ones that cause downward wrinkles atop the nose and lines or dents near the eyebrows – are most dramatically removed by the injection.
Other successful treatment areas are the forehead, which causes horizontal grooves across the forehead, and also the area where crow’s feet develop around the eyes.
The procedure involves the injection of a very small amount of the diluted drug, Botox or Dysport, into the muscle through a very small needle. Over the next two to three days the activity in the muscle is diminished. This results in a smoothing of the overlying wrinkle and an inability of that muscle to contract. Rarely a second injection is needed to achieve the best result. There is no bruising or swelling. Recent reports estimate a greater than 75% success rate in significantly improving the wrinkle treated.
The effects of Botox & Dysport last approximately three to four months at which time another injection is necessary to maintain the improvement. Some doctors think, however, that with these muscles paralyzed, patients learn not to use them, increasing the time between injections. Treatments start at $175 and average over $300.

What is Botox?
Botox is one of the most well-known non-invasive and non-surgical neuromodulators that can help battle the signs of aging. Also known as botulinum toxin injections, the FDA-approved injections are used to help reduce the severity and appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Botox can also be used to help reduce the severity of symptoms caused by hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes excessive sweating throughout the body.
Botox injections have helped countless people achieve a more youthful and radiant appearance. In today’s society, we see people of all ages and walks of life use them in their skincare regimen. As a result, Botox has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. And with cosmetic injectables continuing to rise in popularity, Botox injections are one of the most trusted and commonly used.

Sacramento Botox Reviews
“I didn’t appreciate how wonderful Kaniff is until I bought a groupon for botox and went to another establishment. This other establishment hurried my injections (and applied great amounts of pressure while giving them) to the point where it was excruciatingly painful, I was shuffled out the door with a bloody forehead AND I had 2 bruises on my forehead for a week after the appointment! …
The drug has been used successfully for years to treat cross-eyes, uncontrolled blinking, and spasms of the neck muscle. Now it can be used to treat those lines of expression that cause forehead furrows and crow’s feet by freezing the muscles and smoothing the skin that wrinkles when people furrow brows, frown, or squint.
While temporary, the treatment is safe and produces what some specialists say are “near miraculous” results and significant improvements. Reports one patient: who had a habit of scrunching her forehead while talking, creating deep furrows between her eyebrows: “I had awesome results…I could be a poster child for this.” The procedure is gaining great popularity for older and younger men and women, largely by word of mouth.
More importantly, it can replace or postpone more aggressive efforts to remove forehead wrinkles through surgery. It should be noted however that if a skin wrinkle is already formed, the results of the injection may not be as dramatic and other options may need to be considered.
There are a number of surgical techniques available to permanently interrupt these muscles through a forehead or scalp incision. Other techniques for treating deep wrinkles include the use of filler materials. These options may be better suited for the individual who already has well established deep grooves.
It is best to consult with Dr. Kaniff to determine which non-surgical skin tightening treatments would be the best option for your particular situation.

Dysport injections have been Europe’s go-to injectable long before it was approved for use in the United States in 2009. It works best with larger areas such as the forehead and areas between the eyes thanks to the fast-acting, quick spreading, and even distribution properties that it has.
