The Different Areas Botox Can Treat
Botox is as loved for its instant results as it is for its versatility. We’re going to take a look at some of the most popular areas patients choose to receive it.
Eyebrows: There are two main aims many patients have when they choose to receive Botox around their eyebrows. One is to eliminate the lines between the eyebrows (“the eleven’s”) when squinting or frowning. The other is an eyebrow lift to relax the muscles that pull the brow down, causing hooded eyes.
Eyes: One of the areas Dr. Mai treats most frequently with Botox is the crow’s feet, or laugh lines – the lines that appear with age at the outer corner of the eye.
Forehead: Lines in the forehead are virtually inevitable as one ages, but these can be relaxed with well-placed, nearly painless injections from Dr. Mai.
Nose: Many patients, both men and women, prefer to ease the lines that appear when you crinkle your nose, called bunny nose in women or wolf lines in men.
Mouth: Botox can be injected to relax and smooth the area surrounding the lips, so when the lips pucker, there are no cigarette lines.
Another common injection site around the mouth is the DAO area – often referred to in layman’s terms as “droopy mouth corners.” (DAO is an acronym for the technical name of a specific muscle.) When the DAO is treated with Botox, it will lift the corners of the mouth to prevent them from going downwards when frowning, and helps to prevent marionette lines from forming.
Chin and jaw: Many patients choose to get Botox in their chins to elongate the face and to get rid of “cobblestone chin.” The masseters (an important muscle used in chewing) are another popular choice to have Botox injected in order to help thin the face. It can give those patients with a square jaw more of a v-shaped jaw. If you are looking for more definition in your jaw line, a Nefertiti’s Lift might be for you.
Neck: The vertical neck band is another choice location for Botox injection in order to lessen the appearance of lines or wrinkles along your neck, also known as “necklace lines.”
Armpits – Used to prevent excess sweating known as hyperhidrosis.
