Thanks to a lifetime full of emotions and expressions, stubborn horizontal lines on our foreheads are among the first to form. Because of this, the forehead is one of the most common areas to receive Botox injections. By injecting Botox into the muscles that typically cause these wrinkles to form on the forehead before they begin to develop, you can essentially prevent them before they happen.
Oftentimes, people will wait until they start to see wrinkles before they look into Botox, but preventative Botox allows us to prevent wrinkles before they emerge. The “11” lines in between our eyes are one of the most stubborn areas to treat once a crease has formed. Because of this, it is one of the most popular areas for preventative botox.
Crows Feet: Crow’s Feet are caused by a loss of elasticity in the skin as we age combined with wrinkles caused by squinting, smiling, and, again, our many expressions. Because the face’s focal point is the eyes, injecting Botox around the eyes to prevent these wrinkles is very common.
Bunny lines form from the repeated acts of laughing, scrunching your nose, and other facial movements over time. Botox can be injected into the bunny line area to relax the muscles and limit expressions; this results in minimized wrinkles in that area.
“Smokers’ lines” develop around the mouth because of the puckering of the lips, caused by smoking, sucking through a straw, chewing, talking, etc. This, combined with losing volume and hydration in our lips over time, can lead to this area showing our age more rapidly than others. This is a big reason why around the lips is very commonplace for Botox injections; it can help minimize and prevent wrinkles in this area!
Dimpling and wrinkling in your chin are part of the natural aging process of your face. This type of texture on the chin can make you look older than you are. Many benefits of injecting Botox in the chin area include smoothing out the skin and preventing wrinkles from forming. That is what makes this such a popular area to treat!
Many people tend to clench and grind, which can cause headaches and pain. Additionally, it may make your lower face look wider or more masculine. Botox injected into the masseter muscle is a great way to reduce or stop clenching and grinding and even slim the face.
