What Facial Areas Can Be Injected With Botox?

Adam Newman

If you've been feeling displeased with your appearance in the mirror lately, you might be thinking of Botox as an option for restoring a more youthful look. Botox is one of the best-known treatments for wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, and it does have a long track record of safety. What you may be wondering, though, is exactly where on your face you can or should have Botox injected. That's something you can learn about in the content below.

Between your eyebrows

If you have what are known as frown lines or, in other words, vertical creases between your eyebrows, you can have Botox injected in this region. Frown lines can make you look like you are always angry or stressed-out, even when you are actually happy and relaxed. You might be surprised how differently people approach and perceive you after getting Botox to ease their appearance.

In the forehead

For many patients, the forehead is the place where wrinkles first appear, generally as horizontal lines running from side to side, just about the eyebrows. If you have noticed wrinkles in this area, correcting them with Botox will make you look a lot more youthful, even if you don't get injections anywhere else or have any other cosmetic work done.

Above your eyes

Have your eyes taken on a hooded appearance as the skin above them starts to sag? This look can make you not only look older but also tired. In this case, the Botox injections can be given right behind your eyebrow hair, so even the redness that follows Botox in the short-term should not be noticeable. Many patients are able to cut back on their use of eye creams after Botox injections in the eyebrow area.

In the corners of your mouth

Do you notice a furrow to either side of your mouth when you smile, laugh, or frown? These lines can draw the eyes downward when someone looks at your face, distorting your appearance extensively. Having these areas injected will make the entire half of your face look more youthful, and it will also restore visual balance to your face.

Under your chin

While Botox is not the most effective choice for extensively sagging skin, it can help to correct minor sagging under the chin and jawline. Injecting some Botox here will help with a minor double chin and will make your face look slimmer, which often also makes you look younger.

These are some of the top places to have Botox injected for a younger look. Talk to your local cosmetic doctor to see which injection sites they recommend for you.
