Botox is a purified protein and its main mode of action is relaxing the muscle that it’s placed into.
Botox has several applications, including but not limited to:
- Improving Wrinkles (Forehead lines, Frown lines, Crow’s Feet)
- Face slimming to give it a V-shape Face
- Shaping the Brow/ Browlift
- Improving a “gummy smile” (too much gum is revealed when smiling)
- Shrinking bulky calves to give legs a long and slender look
Wrinkles appear due to multifactorial contributions:
- Movement of facial muscles
- Loss of skin elasticity and volume
- Loss of moisture in the skin
- Skin damage from UV exposure
With Botox, these lines can be smoothed to give a person a more youthful look!
The V-shaped face is a heart-shaped or oval-shaped face that is a symbol of female beauty. It gives a person a young, rejuvenated and elegant look that is highly sought after. Here at Chrysalis Medical Aesthetics, we provide a customized treatment therapy to achieve this desired look WITHOUT surgery!

Botox can be administered to the brow region to shape it and give it a lift so as to give a more refreshed look and appearance, and to make the eyes appear wider!
It can be aesthetically not pleasing to some when too much gum is revealed during smiling. With the placement of botox into certain facial muscles, this “gummy smile” can be improved almost immediately and with no downtime.
For those that have been plagued with large calves and would like to reduce its size, botox can be utilised to shrink these muscles to give the legs a long and slender look.
The procedure consists of Botox being administered into the targeted muscle to relax it.
There is no downtime required afterwards, and the whole process takes approximately 15-30 minutes. Effects for wrinkles are usually seen within 1 week while maximal effects of jaw line slimming are usually seen within 6 – 8 weeks.
