BOTOX is a safe and effective anti-aging treatment. It is FDA-approved to smooth lines and creases between the brows, on the forehead, and around the eyes (crow’s feet). It is commonly used “off-label” to enhance other facial areas. It can be used to re-contour a square jaw, for a subtle “lip lift” or to smooth lines and creases on cheeks and chin.
Common facial areas treated with BOTOX
Areas that are treated with BOTOX include:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- Glabellar lines
- Marionette lines
- Chin wrinkles
- Bunny lines
Crow’s feet form at the corners of your eyes. As your skin ages, the constant muscle motions will etch these delicate creases into your skin. BOTOX relaxes the muscles just below the skin around the eyes in strategic points that relaxes the skin, and when performed correctly, will not interfere with your facial expressions.
Glabellar lines, or the “elevens”
The “elevens” are the frown lines that appear as vertical creases between the eyebrows. Over time, the lines are visible even when your face is at rest. These deep lines can make you look older or unhappy. Relaxing the muscles below the skin smooths the skin for a significantly rejuvenated facial look.
Forehead lines often appear on a mature face. These creases appear early in life, although they develop slowly, finally becoming etched into your skin. These horizontal creases can leave you looking much older than you are. Smoothing the forehead with BOTOX slows the development of these lines and leaves your forehead smooth and youthful, rejuvenated, and restored.
Marionette lines and the chin
Marionette lines form around the mouth, extending to the chin. When strategically treated with BOTOX these lines can become a thing of the past, with creases and lines smoothing – and a look that is years younger.
