Which Area On The Face Can Be Injected With Botox?

Every day we wish that we can turn back the clock on our skin as we got older. And with botox, it’s possible as you can decide which part of your face to be rejuvenated. Read on to know more about the finer details of botox treatment if you decide to book a session with your dermatologist.

As we all know, botox is a neurotoxin that works to relax (or ‘freeze’ if you like) the muscles underneath the skin where wrinkles are formed. Used correctly, botox can be used to treat virtually all wrinkles that you can think of – crow’s feet, forehead lines, bunny lines, and the ‘11s’ the lines between the brows. While intended to be injected in the upper area of the face, it’s also common for doctors to use the drug to reduce the appearance of lip lines as well as around the neck.

Although it’s easy to point out here and there where your skin to be rejuvenated, it’s essential to know that two or more facial muscles interact with each other for various expressions. If one botox injected to only one muscle it will simply reinforce other surrounding muscles and cause unpleasant deformity (look up various celebs going wrong with botox and you’ll be surprised). Thus, having a thorough understanding of how facial muscles works are essential to decide which muscles to be injected for best result.

A good doctor will help you to decide which injections to create the best possible results with a thorough understanding of the facial anatomy. The most common mistake that patients tend to do is pointing firmly the specific area to be treated when the key is to understand the problem on the whole.

Forehead or specifically frown lines are the most susceptible area for both men and women due to the both continuous and excessive facial movements over a long period of time. Usually the procedure is quick (which can take as minimum as fifteen minutes) and does not require anesthesia with the result can last from three to six months.

Crow’s feet are another culprit that needs to be removed for good (particularly for women, they won’t look good as men with these lines) but keep in mind that it can spell disaster if the treatment is done incorrectly. Just like the procedure with frown lines, minimum or no anesthesia is needed and the injection can take as minimum as fifteen minutes. A youthful looking eyes can last up to six months and rarely is swelling or redness occurs surrounding the injection site.

For women, having a brow lift is desirable as you can take years off of your face with a single shot. Just a quick injection with minimal downtime and recovery  is all you need and you can look ‘lift up’ and awake.

After reading this most likely you can look thoroughly at the mirror and see which area is a perfect candidate for Botox, we do suggest speaking to a specialist before deciding where to have the treatment done.
