What Areas Can Be Treated?

There are several areas where Botox can be used. For example, your face, lip lines, forehead, neck, and more. Because Botox stays within the target injection area, you will only want to get Botox in the specific area you want to treat. Many of these treatments are for the effects of facial features.

Common Areas for Botox

When it comes to Botox, we can treat many areas. Here are some of the most common areas Botox can treat.

Frown Lines

These are lines that lie above and between your eyebrows and as you advance in age you will notice that these lines become more noticeable every time you frown. For Botox in Los Angeles, they are known to remove these frown lines from appealing or by preventing them from becoming even more deeper. Men usually have thicker and larger muscles as compared to women hence the require more Botox units.

Crow's Feet

These are the wrinkles or lines that are known to extend from the side of your eyes and headed towards your temple. It will help to soften the wrinkles found in this area by relaxing the muscles that tend to crinkle when you grin. Be rest assured that you will not have a frozen face which many are afraid of and it will take less than 30 minutes and you are done. Fillers like Juvederm can be used for crow’s feet but so can Botox.

Forehead Wrinkles

Everyone grows old and wrinkles are signs of aging. Botox can help you get rid of forehead lines and forehead wrinkles and help with your overall beauty. We are accepting consultations at our office.

Marionette Lines near Jawline

These are wrinkles that are seen to extend from the side of your mouth to the jawline giving a dissatisfied and angry appearance. Why maintain that angry appearance when you can fix it at Botox and make your face have that bright and smoother appearance?

Under Eye Lines

Aging can result in the thinning of the skin and the muscle movement around the eyes repeatedly result in under-eye lines. Softening and relaxing your muscle using Botox treatment is the best-known solution by now and it will give you that look that you have been desiring. The best part is that it only needs a small amount of Botox to reduce wrinkles. Although using Botox treatment will not remove the under eye line completely as seen in frown and lines, your skin will have this smooth look that it will be difficult to see the wrinkles.
