The Seven Most Common Areas To Target With Botox

Injectable fillers like Botox are an effective way to enhance the appearance of the face by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. Botox temporarily suspends the tiny muscles that cause wrinkles from being able to contract, giving the overall appearance of less lines on the face. Here at Aventura Plastic Surgery, your number one choice for cosmetic treatments in Miami,  we use Botox in a number of ways and on different areas of the face and body.

Forehead

Whether you realize it or not, the muscles in your forehead are constantly moving to denote a large range of emotions, from happy surprise to frustrated anger and everything in between. Your forehead contracts and wrinkles as you express yourself. These movements over time will begin to cause lines to appear which eventually grow deeper. Botox is an effective way to deal with frown lines and other forehead wrinkles as well as acting like a temporary brow lift. 

Nose

Botox is a fantastic way to deal with wrinkles that form particularly on the bridge of the nose and right at the top where the nose meets the forehead between the brows. The wrinkles that form on the bridge of the nose are called ‘bunny lines’ and the vertically running lines that form between the eyebrows are called glabellar lines. Botox is useful in smoothing both types of wrinkles. 

Around The Eyes

One of the most common areas people request botox for at our Miami plastic surgery office is the corners of the eyes. Crows feet, as they are known, are the fine lines that form around the edges of your outer eyes. As we squint to read small print, see far off in the distance, or to avoid bright light, the skin around the corner of the eyes contracts, eventually forming wrinkles. Botox helps to drastically reduce the appearance of these lines. 

Chin

Although the chin isn’t typically known as an area that forms wrinkles it can see the benefits of Botox injections. A somewhat common movement disorder called Mentalis Dysfunction can cause tremors in the lower lip and chin. Over time these uncontrollable movements can lead to dimpling or dents in the chin. Botox is useful in helping to smooth out these imperfections.

Around The Mouth

The mouth is another expressive part of the facial structure. Smiling, frowning, pursing our lips, laughing, these are all actions which cause the fine lines around the mouth to grow deeper and deeper through time. Botox can be used to reduce the appearance of these laugh lines. It can also be used for people who feel they have an over exposure of teeth and gums when they smile, known as a gummy smile.

Neck

Over time the skin on our necks grows looser as we lose collagen as we age. Eventually bands will form around the neck known as Platysma Bands. These lines will continue to grow deeper through time but Botox is an effective way to lessen the look of these lines and give the neck a more youthful appearance once again. 

Armpits

Not an area that requires wrinkle treatment the armpits are still a common spot on the body to get Botox injections. This is because Botox is a useful treatment for people who suffer from excessive sweating known as hyperhidrosis. The Botox serum blocks the neurotransmitter that tells the sweat glands to activate, controlling sweating where it has been injected.
