It’s no secret that a few quick Botox injections can help smooth out wrinkles, fine lines, and years of aging signs. When properly administered, Botox can create a more youthful, relaxed face while looking completely natural. Only the targeted areas injected will be relaxed, while the rest of your body will remain unaffected.
After a 15 minute session, not only does Botox create a younger looking and more attractive facial complexion, but it also works as a preventative measure to stop wrinkles from deepening.
So, where are the most popular areas for Botox? Patients often get confused about where exactly it can be administered on the face, thinking it can improve any wrinkle. To provide some clarity, continue reading the most common areas to administer Botox.
Frown Lines/Furrowed Brow – Botox is ideal for treating furrowed brow lines, which are vertical creases in between the brows caused by regular movements such as raising the eyebrows.
Forehead Lines – Factors like genetics, too much exposure to the sun, and stress can cause forehead lines. Patients often choose Botox to take care of these lines before they get worse and noticeably deeper.
Crow’s Feet – The wrinkles that appear on the sides of your eyes & sometimes all the way up to your temples is known as crow’s feet. These can develop from smiling and laughing and are one of the first signs of aging. Botox works exceptionally well to smooth out these wrinkles and enhance your youthful appearance without limiting your facial expressions.
Hooded Eyes/Sagging Brows – As we age, the eyelids may start to get heavier and create a drooping eye effect. Administering Botox in this area opens the eyes and gives the effect of a mini-brow lift in one quick treatment.
Marionette Lines – These are the downward lines around the mouth that look like a marionette puppet. Depending on how deep the lines are, Botox can be a viable solution to these concerns.
More Than Just Cosmetic
If you’re dealing with migraines or excessive sweating in areas like the hands or underarms, Botox has been proven to be an effective solution for both conditions. Please contact us at our Personique On The Spot location if you’d like to learn more.
How Do I Address Other Areas Or Concerns?
While Botox is ideal for unwanted wrinkles around the forehead and eyes, it’s not commonly used to address the very deep lines in areas around the lower half of the face.
In these cases, your physician will likely recommend dermal fillers such as Juvéderm or Restylane to smooth out the lines around your lips or under eye bags. Fillers also work great for restoring any lost volume in the cheeks or lips.
