Three Areas on the Face to Smooth with BOTOX® Injections

Featured Image

BOTOX is a highly versatile injectable that can be life-changing for many men and women. From reducing excessive underarm sweating to providing relief from jaw pain associated with clenching and grinding, the many applications of BOTOX go far beyond its aesthetic uses alone. Still, the cosmetic benefits of BOTOX are certainly among the most popular, with many thousands of new patients turning to BOTOX injections each year to smooth away lines and wrinkles and stay looking younger for longer. At Adean Kingston, M.D., PLLC, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Adean Kingston and our dedicated team offer BOTOX injections to help Dallas, TX men and women look and feel more confident about their appearance and get the younger, more refreshed look they desire. Take a closer look at how BOTOX works for facial lines and wrinkles here, and discover three common problem areas for facial aging that can be dramatically improved with BOTOX cosmetic.

How does BOTOX work for wrinkles?

BOTOX contains a purified strain of botulinum toxin type A. This neurotoxin binds with the receptors responsible for muscle movements and contractions. When injected into the muscles associated with certain facial expressions — like smiling, frowning, or squinting — BOTOX temporarily "freezes" (or paralyzes) the muscle. The forced relaxation of the muscle causes the surface lines and wrinkles that are caused by the facial expression to also relax and smooth away. These lines associated with facial expressions and muscle movements that are responsive to treatment with injectable wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX are known as dynamic lines. On average, the effects of BOTOX wrinkle relaxers last around 3 – 4 months.

Where can BOTOX be used in the face?

Many types of dynamic facial lines and wrinkles can be appropriately and effectively treated with BOTOX injections. During your initial consultation for BOTOX in Dallas, TX, Dr. Kingston or one of our experienced aesthetic injectors will evaluate your areas of concern and discuss with you which lines may be suitable for treatment with BOTOX. For many patients, three common areas of concern that can be addressed with BOTOX wrinkle relaxers are:

  • Between the brows (glabella): Vertical lines between the brows, known casually as 1, 11, or 111 lines due to their appearance, can significantly age a person's face and even make them look angry with the face at rest.
  • Forehead lines: Horizontal wrinkles on the forehead, often caused by years' worth of raising the brows, can also add years to a person's face.
  • Around the eyes: Crow's feet, which are the diagonal branching lines around the outer corners of the eyes, are typically associated with smiling, squinting, and other common expressions. For many people, these are the first facial lines to appear.

With BOTOX injections, patients can enjoy a smoother, younger appearance on the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes — all of which can work together to restore a more youthful look overall.
