Common Areas for Botox
Popular places for Botox injection include but are not limited to:
(sometimes referred to as the H-lines or frown lines, located in between the eyebrows)
the crows feet region
(located on the side of the eye closest to the temple)
Botox was quickly discovered to have a very beneficial cosmetic result when injected in the muscles known to contract and form wrinkles on the face. By weakening or immobilizing certain muscles completely (discretion at the hands of the provider administering and situation dependant) it was noted that pre-existing wrinkles were relaxed and softened, if not completely smoothed out. Once immobilizing muscles, Botox helps to prevents muscles from contracting and forming new wrinkles or deepening existing wrinkles.
Botox Information and Background
Since the very fortunate, yet accidental discovery of botulinum toxin's cosmetic capabilities, over 11.8 million people have chosen Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) to reduce and prevent wrinkles since its 2002 FDA cosmetic approval. Botox was initially FDA approved in 1989 for treatment of crossed eyes and involuntary eyelid blinking and spasms. Shortly after its 2002 FDA clearance for cosmetic use, it was discovered that Botox can inhibit armpit areas known for severe sweating (hyperhidrosis). Botox is one of many products by the company, Allergan.
The length of a patient's result can vary, but the duration typically averages 3-4 months with some patients experiencing results up to 6 months.
Patients love Botox because there is little to no downtime. Botox is minimally invasive and any bruising is often light in color, short lived and easily camouflaged under tinted moisturizer or a light layer of cover up.
Botox for Men
More recently, men have taken a strong interest in Botox and have loved the natural, more youthful results that they have seen.
