Botox: What are the Best Areas to be Injecting it?
Posted on October 5, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko
Over the past decade, Botox has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available. Research proves that it is safe and effective, and countless patients who have had great results with it prove that Botox really is the secret for youthful and beautiful skin. But while Botox can have a major impact on your appearance, it is only effective in certain areas of the face. Let’s take a look at the best Botox injection sites.
“Surprise lines” are those horizontal creases on the forehead that appear when you raise your eyebrows. In younger individuals, surprise lines are only present when facial muscles are contracting, but skin tends to lose its elasticity as we age. Often, surprise lines are present in older individuals, even when the facial muscles are not contracting—these patients are excellent candidates for Botox injections.
The frown lines, or “11’s”, are vertical lines that appear between the eyebrows. These lines are often one of the first signs of aging, and they may make you look tired and even angry. The 11’s tend to respond very well to Botox—getting an injection in this area results in much younger, fresher look.
“Crow’s feet” are tiny lines that form on the outside edges of the eyes. They tend to be particularly noticeable when a person is squinting or smiling. Crow’s feet are another great area for Botox injections.
Essentially, the best Botox injection sites are the areas where “dynamic” wrinkles are present in the upper part of the face—crow’s feet, 11’s, and surprise lines. Botox works by relaxing the muscles that cause these wrinkles to form. Other types of lines and wrinkles, such as smile lines and smoker’s lines, may respond better to dermal fillers.
