Botox® was FDA-approved for treating frown lines almost 20 years ago, but this versatile neuromodulator is used for much more than just glabellar lines. Botox injections are one of the most-requested cosmetic treatments by our patients at Eden Plastic Surgery Institute for a variety of reasons. Here are some of the different ways Botox Cosmetic can be used to improve the appearance of the face beyond smoothing the “11’s” between the brows.
- 1. Goodbye, Bunny Lines
- Some people have a line that forms across the bridge of their nose, often called “bunny lines.” Botox injections can relax the muscles that form this line and transform a bunny nose back into a human nose for a few months before another treatment is needed.
- 2. Ghost Your Gummy Smile
- If too much of your upper gums show when you smile, consider Botox to relax the upper lip to show less of your gums. This is a quick alternative to expensive and invasive dental treatments to fix a gummy smile.
- 3. Flip Your Lip
- Do you want a thicker, fuller pout? Botox injections can create a lip flip on your upper lip, resulting in more vermillion, or pink, showing for more attractive, plump lips.
- 4. Balance Your Brow
- If your eyebrows have lost a little of their arch or seem to be closer to your eyes, Botox can give your brow a little non-surgical lift. Precision placement of Botox can relax muscles that pull the brows down, temporarily giving you a more youthful brow.
- 5. Soften Your Square Jaw
- Botox is a wonderful way to slim a wide face or taper a square jaw. Botox can be used for masseter reduction, shrinking the large jaw muscles to create a more heart-shaped or oval face.
- 6. Fly Away, Crow’s Feet
- Those crinkles at the corners of your eyes may be leftover lines from years of smiling, but they also make you look older. Botox works well for diminishing crow’s feet for more youthful eyes.
- 7. Nix the Neck Cords
- If you have pronounced vertical neck cords, Botox can smooth the prominence of the neck muscles for a younger-appearing neck line.
- 8. Dump the Dimples
- Do you have an orange-peel chin or dimples that you want gone? Botox can help smooth your chin from unwanted dimples.
