What Facial Areas Can Be Treated with Botox®?

As we age, imperfections begin to appear on our faces. Fine lines to dynamic wrinkles mark your once smooth and radiant skin. With innovations in science and technology, most people can prolong their youthful appearance with the help of Botox®, the most well-known anti-aging cosmetic product.

When properly administered by an experienced injector, the treatment can create a beautiful, natural look. The best part about Botox® is that only the area of the face injected with Botox® will be relaxed, so you can still make all the expressions you want, just without the lines.

At Eros Beauty and Wellness, board-certified family physician Dr. Christine Eros has served the great San Diego area with beautiful, natural cosmetic results for many years. She is trained in Botox® administration and will customize your results according to your individual desires.

Which Facial Areas Can Be Treated with Botox®?

Forehead wrinkles

Forehead wrinkles are a product of aging and repeated muscle movement. If you are self-conscious or dissatisfied with the premature appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, Botox® can absolutely help. Botox® injections for forehead wrinkles are an excellent option for achieving a smooth, relaxed look.

Frown lines

Frown lines are those pesky lines that sit between and above the eyebrows. Similar to forehead wrinkles, frown lines become more and more prominent as we age. Botox® works well to help remove frown lines and also prevent those lines from becoming any deeper.

Under-Eye lines

Under-eye lines are caused by repeated movements of muscles around the eyes and cheek area, as well as thinning skin due to aging. Botox® for fine lines can help soften the wrinkles under your eyes by relaxing the muscles for a smoother look.

Marionette Lines

Marionette lines are wrinkles that run from the side of the mouth towards the jawline. These lines can give you an angry or dissatisfied appearance. Marionette lines are caused by skin laxity, which Botox® helps to repair.

Is There Any Discomfort?

Dr. Eros will be sure to make your Botox® injections as painless as possible. The syringes used for Botox® are small, so pain is typically minimal, but you can always request a numbing cream for the area to avoid any discomfort. You might feel slightly bruised in the injection site a few hours after once the cream has worn off, but that typically goes away within 24 hours. Botox® injections come with no severe side effects, so you are free to carry on with your day without hindrance.
