If you haven’t heard of Botox, you just may have been living under a rock for the past several years. What was once a taboo treatment is now everyone’s favorite beauty secret. If you’re looking for a safe and effective way to temporarily remove the signs of aging from your face that have left their mark in the form of fine lines and wrinkles, our skincare professionals at Doctors MedSpa in Little Rock, Arkansas have just the solution: Botox injections.
Where Should You Get Botox Injections?
The most common areas people typically get Botox injections are in the face since this is where the most visible signs of aging appear. The exact location of the face that you choose to get an injection of Botox comes down to what your particular concerns are regarding fine lines and wrinkles. If you aren’t sure where to get Botox but know you need it, we’ll help you develop the best plan of attack so that you can feel your best.
Botox for Forehead Lines and Wrinkles
One of the most common areas that Botox is injected is in the forehead. Whether you have fine or deep horizontal forehead lines, Botox will temporarily rid you of them, creating a relaxed appearance. Your forehead will be smooth, but you don’t have to worry about looking frozen. The amount of movement you’ll have following Botox is all determined by how many units are injected into the area, something we can discuss with you during your appointment.
Botox for Elevens
As aging occurs, it often shows up between the eyes in the form of “elevens,” the pair of lines that develop from squinting, frowning, and general overuse of the muscles located in this area. If you find that you look like you’re frowning when you’re actually not and want that relaxed, youthful look back, we can help with that. Botox will temporarily remove all signs of “elevens,” and your furrowed brow will be replaced with a smooth, youthful one.
Botox for Crows Feet
The lines that form on the outside of your eyes and typically show up when you smile are known as “crow’s feet”. If you have “crows feet” and are self-conscious about smiling or feel as though they make you look older than you are, you don’t have to live with them anymore. Botox injections in this area will temporarily rid you of these bothersome, aging lines and replace them with a look that will give you all of the confidence that you deserve.
Botox for the Upper Eyebrows
Another common site for a Botox injection is in the eyebrow and forehead region as a means of creating an eyebrow lift. As we age, gravity takes its toll on the face it can begin to droop. If you feel as though your eyebrows are drooping and you want more of a lifted look, Botox can help with that. An injection in this area will give you a very natural-looking eyebrow lift, not a Cruella de Vil look.
Botox for Lines Around the Nose
“Bunny lines” can develop around the sides of the nose when the nose is wrinkled and want these lines treated and temporarily removed with Botox. These lines develop from the repetition of certain facial expressions over time, the same way that all of the other lines and wrinkles that form on the face develop.
Botox for the Corners of the Mouth
Some people are plagued by lines around the mouth due to excessive muscle movement, or even a downturned mouth that they want to be lifted. Botox injections in this area of the face will relax these lines temporarily and can also have an added effect of lifting the downturned area of the mouth as well.
Botox for the Chin
Some people develop a dimpling effect in their chin over time, which is commonly referred to as a “cobblestone” chin. This develops from repeated expressions combined with the aging process. As the overlying fat in the area naturally diminishes with age, a “cobblestone” chin can result, making your entire face appear older than you are. Those who want to remedy this choose to have Botox injections in this area.
Other Sites for Botox
You may have heard of Botox being injected into areas of the body other than the face. There are some other, less common sites for Botox aside from the face that typically have a more medical reason behind them rather than a cosmetic one. These sites typically have less to do with treating the signs of aging and more about treating health or medical-related issues and are often performed by a medical professional.
Botox for the Jaw
Botox can be inserted into the muscles of the jawline as a method of treating jaw-related pain and discomfort often stemming from TMJ.
Botox for the Underarms
For those that have hyperhidrosis, also known as chronic, excessive sweating, and perspiring, Botox is often a means to resolve such issues through an injection in this particular area.
