If you’re thinking about getting Botox for the first time, you likely have a few questions. Such as, which areas of my face can I get treated? You’re not the only one — in fact, that is one of the most frequently-asked questions about the treatment! Keep reading to discover how Botox works to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe lines in areas such as forehead lines, frown lines, and crow's feet lines.
How does Botox work?
Think about the muscles that you use when you furrow your brow, frown, or squint. Over time, these repeated muscle contractions can create visible wrinkles in areas including the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes. Botox and other neurotoxins works by temporarily reducing the muscle movements in these areas, which temporarily softening the appearance of the moderate to severe lines they can cause. You’ll still look like you but with fewer noticeable lines.
What are the most commonly treated areas?
Frown lines typically appear as a set of vertical, parallel lines between the eyebrows. Frown lines are often called “the elevens.” This area was the first FDA approved area. The glabellar complex is the name for the group of muscles between the brows that, with repeated contraction over time, cause the formation of visible frown lines, or elevens.
The second most commonly treated area where you can get treated with neurotoxins is the outer eye area, otherwise known as crow’s feet. Crow’s feet are the lines that often start at the corner of the eye and span outwards. These lines are typically caused by laughing, smiling, or squinting.
Forehead lines appear as horizontal lines that run in one or more rows across the mid- to upper-forehead. They are often caused repeated eyebrow-raising. Botox can be injected into the forehead to temporarily reduce the muscle activity, which will temporarily smooth the appearance of the associated forehead wrinkles.
