While you can use BOTOX on almost every part of your face, there are specific areas where you will see the best results. As you know, BOTOX is an effective way to not only soften fine lines and wrinkles but also to prevent these fine lines from blossoming into deeper wrinkles. But which facial areas and signs of aging should treat with BOTOX? Find out more in this post.
If you have an expressive forehead, you will start to notice faint lines that get deeper as time goes by. Horizontal forehead lines are difficult to hide, and BOTOX is a great option to smooth out these lines. But remember, if you want to maintain your smooth skin, you will need touch-up sessions every 3 to 4 months or so.
You can expect your BOTOX treatment to last around 4 to 6 months. Having a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon perform your treatment can ensure excellent, long-lasting results.
The annoying lines that run from the corners of your mouth to your chin, also called marionette lines, can be easily improved with BOTOX. The neuromodulator works to relax the muscles that cause marionette lines for a smoother and softer appearance. Your provider may advise you to pair your BOTOX treatment with dermal fillers to fill in especially deep marionette lines.
BOTOX treatment for marionette lines typically lasts about 3 months.
These lines form at the corners of your eyes when you laugh, smile, or frown. BOTOX can ease crow’s feet so you can avoid that unsightly crinkling effect around your eyes. Most men and women want to get rid of their crow’s feet without an unnatural, frozen look around the eyes. A skilled injector can give you the soft and natural-looking results you are looking for.
Your BOTOX treatment for crow’s feet around the eyes can last up to 4 months.
BOTOX can eliminate the frown lines you can see between your eyebrows, also called glabellar lines or the 11s. These lines can give you an anxious or upset appearance and are easy to eliminate with BOTOX.
Your results can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months.
Smoker’s lines are the fine lines that form around your mouth—they often make you look like you are pursing your lips to smoke a cigarette. These lines, although faint, can often drag your lower face down and give you a tired appearance. Refreshing these lines with BOTOX will put the spotlight back on your radiant smile.
If you get BOTOX for your smoker’s lines, expect your results to last around 3 to 4 months.
BOTOX not only treats the dynamic wrinkles listed above but can also slim your jawline, smooth dimpling “orange peel” skin on your chin, erase bunny lines on your nose, and provide an upper “lip flip” to make your top lip look subtly fuller. However, BOTOX is not a one-size-fits-all treatment, and you can discuss how to get the best results with your provider.
