Botox is an injectable cosmetic treatment that has been used by millions of people. This wonder toxin is great in smoothing out wrinkles, crows feet, and fixing other imperfections that make us look older. There are a number of areas where Botox can be injected, with the face being the most requested area.
Our face is our identity and the first thing people see. Over time, our faces will sag, droop, and lose their elasticity due to aging and genetics. Botox injections work by blocking muscle nerves, which in turn softens wrinkles. This can shed years off your appearance and boost your confidence. Read on to learn more about Botox and the areas it can treat.
Botox Treatment Areas
This area is where those pesky horizontal lines form over time. When the aging process begins, these are usually the first signs. Botox injections are highly successful in diminishing these lines for up to six months.
Crow’s feet form around your eyes and they are the most prominent when you smile and laugh. These lines can be minor or very deep. The more visible they are, the more it shows advancing age. Botox injections can certainly diminish the appearance of these lines and make the face look more youthful.
These deep lines between the eyebrows can make you look both old and tired. Botox is very good at smoothing out those lines and reducing the depth. It can literally shave years off your appearance and give a more youthful look.
Unfortunately, these lines form around the mouth and they can make you look 10-15 years older depending upon how deep and prominent they are. An experienced doctor can treat these pesky lines with Botox for a more youthful-looking smile.
Neck bands can start to show when the platysma muscles begin to sag. Skin sagging around the neck is also a tell-tale sign of aging. Botox will relax the muscles in the area and make the lines far less visible. One thing to keep in mind is that neck fat will not respond to Botox treatment.
Marionette lines extend from the corners of the mouth down to the jaw. This can cause men and women to appear older than they feel, and also cause the mouth to look droopy. Botox can successfully combat these issues.
Botox can give the look of a mini brow lift without surgery. The muscles that naturally pull the eyebrows down are relaxed, resulting in a youthful lift.
