What areas of your face we use Botox Cosmetics on
There are three main areas on your face where we can inject Botox to reduce wrinkles and fine lines: your forehead, between your eyes and/or on the sides of your eyes.
On Your Forehead
One of the first areas on your face that wrinkles started to appear was most likely the forehead area. The horizontal lines can start to be noticeable in the 20’s and continue to add over the years.
Between your eyebrows
The vertical lines between your eyes are called the glabellar lines and are also known as the 11 lines or angry lines. These are typically present more often while reading or squinting your eyes.
On the sides of your eyes (crow’s feet area)
Crow’s feet lines on the outsides of your eyes are caused by small muscle movements on your face over the years and are more noticeable while you’re having active movements on your face.
How Botox Works
Botox, a combination of botulinum toxin type A (the active ingredient), sodium chloride and human albumin, is injected with a fine needle in a targeted area of the face to paralyze and relax muscles. By doing this, the skin above the paralyzed muscles are able to stay static because the muscles in the area treated are not able to move; when the muscles are unable to move, the skin will be relaxed and not stressed, and won’t cause wrinkles to be present.
