People commonly ask which areas of my face can I get injected with Botoxâ„¢ (Botulinum Toxin)?

Posted Mar 15 2008 12:00am

Botox is most commonly used to treat these problems:

  • "Frown lines" between the eyes

  • "Crow’s feet" on the sides of the eyes

  • "Worry lines" on the forehead

Experienced physicians may use Botox Cosmetic to

  • Raise the corners of the brows

  • Widen narrow eyes

  • Improve “gummy smile” by lowering the upper lip by several millimeters

  • Treat “smoker’s lines” around the mouth

  • Decrease the depth of “smile lines” from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth

  • Soften “Marionette lines” from the corners of the mouth down

  • Reduce “pebble chin”

  • Decrease “neck cords” from the chin to the neck

  • Treat “necklace lines”

I have seen success with all these treatment areas, but some uses of Botox may not be appropriate for certain patients. There are some risks to treating any area, and the risks must be weighed against the benefit of treatment.
