Where Can BOTOX® be Injected in the Face?
BOTOX – we’ve all heard of it. This brand is quickly becoming a household name as more people learn about the amazing anti-aging benefits it provides.
So, what exactly are wrinkle relaxers, and where can they be used? Below, Dr. Jeffrey Patrick Olson will answer your burning questions about this injectable treatment in Palm Springs, CA. Call JPO Aesthetics to schedule a consultation and see why we are a trusted name in the aesthetic industry.
How do wrinkles form?
Fine lines are the result of muscle contractions. When we smile, frown, or make other facial expressions, the muscles contract, causing the overlying skin to crease. Over time, these lines deepen and become more permanent.
BOTOX is a neuromodulator that blocks signals to these muscles, which prevents them from contracting. As a result, our skin appears much smoother, and wrinkles are significantly reduced.
What areas can be treated with BOTOX?
A consultation at JPO Aesthetics is the best way to understand which areas can be treated with BOTOX injections. During this appointment in Palm Springs, CA, Dr. Olson will review your anti-aging goals and make recommendations before moving forward.
We frequently treat the following areas with BOTOX:
- Forehead: Horizontal lines across the forehead are often the first to appear as we age. BOTOX can address these wrinkles and frown lines that form between the brows.
- Eyes: Crow’s feet, or lines that appear around the outer corners of the eyes, can make you seem tired. Wrinkle relaxers smooth out these creases for a more rested look.
- Mouth and lips: Marionette lines and smoker's lines run from the corners of your mouth. Cosmetic injections can soften these creases to enhance your smile.
How does Dr. Olson perform BOTOX injections?
Your safety and comfort are our top priorities at JPO Aesthetics. Dr. Olson understands that any treatment involving needles can be daunting for some, which is why we take every measure to ensure you are as relaxed as possible.
BOTOX injections take several minutes to complete once we determine which areas you want to address. They are administered using a fine gauge needle and are virtually painless. Many patients compare the sensation to a light pinch.
You can almost immediately resume activities as normal once the injections are complete. There is no downtime associated with BOTOX, which makes it the perfect lunchtime treatment.
How do you create natural results with BOTOX?
The key to creating natural-looking results with BOTOX is to use it conservatively. Dr. Olson always errs on the side of caution, ensuring that you don't look “frozen” or "overdone."
Patients should always choose a skilled injector who understands facial anatomy and knows how to place wrinkle relaxers in just the right places. With years of experience and training, Dr. Olson has the expertise you can trust for beautiful, natural-looking results.
Want to treat even more areas?
Sometimes, Dr. Olson recommends combining BOTOX injections with other anti-aging treatments to create more comprehensive outcomes. For example, dermal fillers can add volume to hollow or gaunt areas, especially in the mid-face. This approach is popular because we can treat multiple concerns during a single appointment.
