Botox / Dysport / Xeomin | Best Treatment Areas on the Face
Bar none, Botox is the best treatment to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Here’s our guide to where cosmetic injectables like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin, can be placed on the face to effectively diminish visible signs of aging:
Botox for Treatment Areas for Upper Face:
Horizontal Brow Lines / Surprise Lines
Surprise lines are among the first to show up on the face. They appear horizontally along the brow when we raise our eyebrows. They tend to appear in rows and make us look either anxious or tired. Unfortunately, they multiply and get deeper with age. By relaxing the frontalis muscle (responsible for raising the eyebrow), Botox can work to restore a smooth surface to this area.
Frown Lines / The Eleven’s or 11’s / Glabellar Lines
Glabellar lines usually appear as two (although some people have more) vertical lines on and above the bridge of the nose and into the forehead. They form as the result of years of squinting, frowning or concentrating. When they become prominent, they tend to make us look perpetually angry or preoccupied. By far, they are the most popular site for Botox injections. In fact, Botox was originally approved by the FDA to treat these very common lines.
Horizontal Bunny Lines
Bunny lines appear as lines on the sides of the nose or creases across the bridge of the nose. They become more prominent when we wrinkle the nose or squint. By strategically placing small amounts of Botox on both sides of the nose, they can be corrected.
Eyebrow Lift / Sagging Brow
As we age, the brow area can droop, making our eyes look hooded and giving us a negative expression. By relaxing the muscles that are pulling the eyebrows down, we can refresh the appearance.
Botox Treatment Areas for Eyes / Eye Area:
Crow’s Feet / Periorbital Wrinkles
Crow’s Feet are also among the first to develop on our face. They radiate outward from the outer corners of the lower eyelid towards the temple. They usually appear when we crinkle our eyes, as in laughter or when squinting. When we are younger, they tend to go unnoticed. Unfortunately, they become deeper and more prominent, as we age. By placing Botox on the lateral area under the eye, we can diminish the look of wrinkles on this area and restore a youthful appearance.
Botox Treatment Areas for Lower Face:
Corners of Mouth / Marionette Lines
The muscles of the face can pull the corners of the mouth down, creating a drooping appearance and a permanent frown. Left uncorrected, the heaviness can lead to Marionette lines, which run from the corners of the mouth towards the jawline or jowls. By utilizing Botox on each side of the outer edges of the lip, both the mouth and jaw area can be lifted.
Vertical Lines on Mouth / Lipstick Lines / Smoker’s Lines
These vertical lines appear above or above the lip area. They are particularly noticeable when we purse our lips. A small amount of Botox around the mouth can restore a smooth appearance to this area.
Jawline / Jaw / Along the Masseter Muscle
Many people turn to Botox to correct a too-square jaw. Whether from genetic predisposition or teeth-grinding (Bruxism), the Masseter muscle along the jawline can appear too prominent and jut out. By relaxing the muscle, Botox can create a temporary jaw reduction, revealing a slimmer jawline and a V-Shaped contour to the face.
