In what areas of the face can Botox be used?
Unlike many other plastic surgery procedures, Botox is minimally invasive and completely reversible. But what can it actually do for you? Where can it be used, and will it work? The good news is that Botox is effective in dealing with many of the aesthetic concerns that come with ageing, and although you will have to repeat the treatment at intervals, you won’t have to “go under the knife” or have to worry that you’ll be stuck with the look forever if you don’t like it.
Some people start developing frown lines when they are still quite young. For others, these austere lines begin to appear as the ageing process begins. Either way, they make one look rather formidable. Unless you are actually smiling, people will think you look worried, cross, or stressed out, even though you may be feeling none of these things.
Botox is an effective treatment for lines that appear between the eyebrows, and you won’t get people accusing you of giving them “filthy looks” just because your face is in repose at the time.
These are the horizontal lines that appear across our foreheads, and they make us look permanently puzzled. A smooth forehead is one of the signs of youth, but we can “cheat” just a little bit, by smoothing out these lines with Botox. Don’t worry, the change is subtle. Your friends will merely say you’re looking good these days.
The wrinkles that appear beside our eyes are sometimes called “laugh lines” or, rather less pleasantly, “crows’ feet”. For many people, looking younger is simply a matter of reducing the appearance of these lines, and Botox can do that instantly. Now, the lines around your eyes will only be visible when your face crinkles into a smile. It really is like turning back the clock.
Are you developing lines on either side of your nose? If so, you’ll recognize that “bunny lines”, though they may sound cute, really do make us look a lot older. And yes, there is something rabbit-like about them. If you have them, you probably don’t think they’re cute at all, despite their cute name. Many people don’t realize that Botox can smooth out these lines very effectively.
Reduce nasal flare
Rather than going for a full scale rhinoplasty, you may be able to improve the look of your nose by reducing nasal flare with a simple Botox shot. Your Toronto plastic surgeon will be able to advise as to whether this will be helpful in your case.
Lift the corners of your mouth
Sometimes, the corners of our mouths begin to droop as we age. Once again, it’s an austere look that may make people think we are grumpy and unfriendly. Create a more positive impression by tightening and lifting the corners of your mouth with a Botox injection.
Reduce “orange peel” chin
No matter whether you can live with the lines and wrinkles that come with time, orange peel chin is embarrassing and really spoils your appearance. But Botox can make the difference you’re looking for, and the results are immediate.
