Botox is the world’s most popular non-surgical anti-aging facial procedure to reduce lines and wrinkles. The treatment should be received at a certified medical spa with a strong track record of success with Botox procedures. The treatment can smooth frown lines between the brows, on the forehead, around the crow’s feet, and at the nasal base.

The FDA has approved Botox for the treatment of frown lines and crow’s feet for people in the age group of 18 to 65. The treatment can take as little as 15 to 30 minutes, and produce near-instant results. The effects of Botox can last for about three to six months. Sky Balance Med Spa is a premier facility for Botox treatment. The med spa receives patients from Schaumburg, Chicago, IL, and surrounding communities.

Benefits of Botox

When the treatment is received by a recognized Botox expert, it will produce highly desirable and predictable outcomes. The face will appear more youthful and rejuvenated.


Wrinkles and lines around the eyes are typically caused due to muscle movement and facial expression. These wrinkles respond well to Botox. When Botox is injected directly into the overactive muscle that is causing the wrinkle, it will allow the muscle to relax. Crinkling or squinting in the eye area will be minimized. The FDA approved Botox in 2013 for the treatment of crow’s feet.

Botox treatment will only impact the muscle nerves, but will not have an effect on the nerves of sensation. Therefore, the patient will not suffer from any loss of sensation following Botox procedure at a certified medical spa.


Brows can get permanently wrinkled due to activities such as smiling, laughing, and frowning. When the wrinkles from the brow area are removed with Botox, it can significantly improve an individual’s appearance from one of tiredness, sadness or continual anger to that of youthfulness and well-rested contentment.

Moderate to severe frown lines between the brows can be removed with Botox. Even men with deep, stubborn furrows between the brows can benefit from Botox cosmetic injections. Sky Balance med spa provides Botox treatment to patients in Schaumburg, Chicago, IL, and nearby areas.

Forehead Lines

Lines and wrinkles on the forehead can make person appear older and haggard. As the forehead lines are horizontal, these can be improved significantly. Botox does not address each wrinkle individually, but it only treats the underlying wrinkle-causing muscles. Once Botox injections are received in the targeted areas, wrinkles and lines in the forehead will no longer remain active for a few months.

Jaw Contouring

Jaw contouring is one of the more recent uses of Botox for cosmetic enhancement. If the masseter muscles are oversized, these can be treated with Botox injections. These muscles relate to the jaw and are used for chewing.

Patients with a square-shaped face may be able to achieve a little more natural and oval shape with this treatment. The size of the masseter muscles is slightly reduced with this procedure, leading to a gently curved jaw and cheek.
