When and where to use Botox
Where the sun wreaks havoc on unprotected skin, there are some patients in their late 20s and early 30s who have significant wrinkling on the forehead, between the eyebrows and “squint lines” around the eyes.
Botox is often injected in the outer corners of the eyes to reduce or eliminate crow’s feet and lift eyebrows. In the lips and chin to reduce wrinkles. Also for the forehead to remove horizontal creases and the neck to reduce wrinkling.
Botox will last three to six months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are shrinking.
