Where Can Botox® Be Used?
Botox® has been approved for the treatment of crow’s feet, forehead lines, and glabellar lines (wrinkles between the brows). However, Botox® works in many other locations on the body, including:
- Necklines and bands of muscle
- “Bunny lines” on the upper part of the nose
- Chin dimples
- Lines around the mouth
- “Gummy smile” where the smile reveals too much gum tissue
- Downturned corners of the mouth
Botox® has been used in medical treatments for decades. Its safety has been well-established, and it has uses almost anywhere on the body, from reducing eyelid twitches to managing excessive sweating.
Is There Any Downtime with Botox®?
People often go directly back to work or another activity after Botox®. Some people experience swelling or sensitivity in the area for a day or two. You will have no restrictions on your activities.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®?
If you have expression lines and wrinkles you would like to get rid of, you may be a good candidate for Botox®. Let us know during your consultation if you have ever had a reaction to a botulinum product before. Pregnant or breastfeeding women or people with certain neuromuscular conditions should not have Botox®.
