Botox is a popular cosmetic anti-wrinkle treatment. It’s now a widely used treatment for anyone who wants to maintain smooth, youthful-looking skin. Many people contact us to check if these cosmetic injections can solve the wrinkles, creases, and lines on their faces – most of the time, it can!
If you’re considering it, here are the four most common areas for cosmetic Botox. We often combine treatment areas to provide our clients with the best results!
As we age, one of the first spots for wrinkle formation is on the forehead. These appear as horizontal creases at the top of the face because of how your forehead moves as you make facial expressions. Because of how early they form and how difficult they can be to hide, the forehead is one of the more popular targets for Botox.
Around The Eyebrows
Related to the forehead, Botox is a simple and effective way to get a non-surgical brow lift. A Botox brow lift will remove forehead lines, raise sagging eyebrows and eliminate the hooding of the upper eyelids. We would inject a small amount of Botox above the lateral aspect of the eyebrows to lift the droopy brows, providing a lift without invasive surgery.
Wrinkles can also form when you frown or furrow your brow. These are called vertical lines or 11 lines, and these can make you look angry or tired. Botox is effective at reducing the depth of these lines and smoothing them out.
The Corners Of The Eyes
A life full of laughter can create creases around the eyes. When you’re constantly using your muscles, fine lines called crow’s feet can form at the corners of the eyes. Botox injections can effectively reduce these lines without giving the face a stretched appearance, restoring the look of younger, healthier skin!
Around The Lips
Pursing, smiling, laughing – all these can cause wrinkles, creases, and lines around the lips over time. One example is marionette lines; these extend from the corners of the mouth down toward the jaw. Small amounts of Botox can help correct both of these problems. How muscles in the lower face interact with one another can make this injection a bit more difficult, but a trained and certified nurse will have no problem!
Another problem is colloquially called smoker’s lines, but you don’t have to smoke to have them; they’re also known as perioral lines, in case you object to the former label! These lines appear when you purse your lips and fan out into the surrounding skin. A small amount of Botox is all that’s needed to treat these lines!
Bands or cords often begin to show in the neck as a sign of ageing. It’s caused by the platysma muscles starting to sag, and injecting Botox into these muscles will let them relax. When Botox injections make the platysma muscles relax, the bands become less visible. It’s a technique that can also relax the muscles at the jawline, creating a neck lift.
No matter where you want your Botox, getting the best results depends on choosing a reputable and experienced injector. Contact Hope Cosmetics today with the parts you want smoothed – Nurse Hope will give you the treatment and care you deserve!
