Top 5 Facial Areas for Botox Treatments
Botox is the first injectable used to achieve younger-looking skin. In its natural form, it’s a neurotoxin produced by bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. Botox is an effective treatment for many medical conditions, such as cervical dystonia, overactive bladder, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, lazy eye, chronic migraines, and excessive sweating. However, it’s best known for reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
When used correctly by a trained medical professional, it effectively paralyzes the muscles that cause facial lines and wrinkles and achieves a smoother, younger-looking appearance. It does this by blocking signals from the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, which tells the muscles to contract.
With the signal blocked, the muscles can’t contract, and instead, they relax, causing the lines and wrinkles to soften. Botox is best for treating dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions over long periods of time. They are common in several areas of the face.
Most common dynamic wrinkles:
- Crow’s feet
- Glabellar lines/Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Bunny lines
While Botox is effective at treating these areas, the effects don’t last forever. The results will fade after 3 to 12 months. But don’t worry—you can maintain your results by repeating Botox treatments every 3 to 6 months.
Reduce Facial Wrinkles
Botox injections are the most popular treatment for wrinkles, the first signs of aging. There are several treatment areas that target the lines and wrinkles that make you look older.
Crow’s feet, also called smile lines, are the creases that stem from the outer corners of your eyes, and they’re often the first lines that you notice remain on your face even after the smile fades. Botox treatments can smooth out these lines and give you a fresh look, so you can smile without the lines.
Glabellar lines, also called frown lines, are the lines on the bridge of your nose, between your eyes. They’re caused by repeated frowning or scowling. Botox can’t get rid of what caused you to frown, but it can get rid of those lines.
Those deep forehead lines can be so expressive. Botox injections can make them appear shallower and less visible, so you can still express yourself without your forehead expressing your age.
Bunny lines are the creases that appear when you wrinkle your nose, and they remain there when you stop. Botox treatments can reduce the appearance of deep bunny lines.
Get Rhinoplasty Results but Without Surgery
The natural aging process can cause the area around your nose to sag, giving your nose a hooked appearance. Botox can release the muscle that has your nose hooked and give it a lifted appearance, making your entire face appear lifted.
Reshape Jawline & Chin
Years of teeth-grinding can widen your jaw and change the shape of your face. Botox injections can narrow the jawline, relieve the discomfort caused by grinding and clenching, and make your cheeks appear more plump and youthful.
Lift Your Lips like Angelina Jolie
Are you looking for fuller, more pouty lips but not ready to take the plunge with Dermal Filler? Try Botox as an alternative! A few units of Botox placed strategically above the upper lip can leave you with fuller looking, natural lips.
If you want a cheaper, more natural-looking approach to getting fuller lips, skip the collagen and try Botox instead. A few drops of Botox can lift your lips, making them look fuller, naturally.
If you do use this above paragraph please replace “drops” with “units” and avoid the word “cheap” or “cheaper” try “less expensive” or “inexpensive”
