Where can Botox be Injected?

26 Nov 2020 Beauty

While people tend to think that botox (a brand name product that is often used interchangeably with other neuromodulators) can be injected wherever wrinkles or lines appear on the face, this is not the case. A professional practitioner like the ones from Bottle Service can help you determine where botox can be injected safely into your face and whether or not botox is the best neuromodulator for your wants and needs. A Bottle Service Injector will take the time to ensure that the right neuromodulator—out of the four different types approved in Canada—is selected for your individual needs.

Botox can be injected into the face in order to help correct:

1. Frown Lines

Frown lines or glabella lines are the vertical lines that appear between the eyebrows. Botox can be injected directly into the muscles between the eyebrows to help reduce the appearance of these lines.

2. Forehead Lines

Forehead lines, also known as surprise lines, appear across the forehead when your eyebrows are raised. These horizontal lines become more apparent with age and can be made deeper as a result of smoking or sun damage. Botox can lessen the look of these lines but may not remove them completely.

3. Bunny Lines

Bunny lines are the creases that appear on the top of the nose when it crinkles. An experienced practitioner can inject botox on either side of the nose to help reduce the appearance of these lines; however, if not done correctly, these injections can affect your smile.

4. Eyebrows & Crow’s Feet

Aging can often cause the brow to drop, creating a hooded eyelid look and horizontal folds in the skin around the eyes. A botox facelift can be used to help sculpt and lift the eyebrows to help counteract this effect. Botox is also extremely effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines or crow’s feet that appear in the corners of the eyes due to aging.

5. Puckered Chin

Over time, the mentalis muscles in the chin can become overactive, causing them to flex more often which can lead to a dimpled, puckered appearance. Botox can help relax the muscles in the chin in order to reduce the appearance of dimpling, creating a smoother look to the skin.

6. Sagging Jawline and Neck

Botox can be an effective treatment option for smoothing out the vertical and horizontal lines and wrinkles around neck that are caused by genetics, gravity, weakened collagen, and overworked facial muscles.
