If you think Botox® is just for those with “11s” between their eyebrows, you are missing out. Yes, the first Botox Cosmetic FDA approval back twenty years ago was for treatment of frown or glabellar lines, but that was just the beginning. Since then, Botox has been used for a wide variety of cosmetic uses, some FDA approved and others as “off label” treatments. Here are some of the ways Botox is changing faces beyond just smoothing away frown lines.
Say Goodbye to Chin Dimples
If you have an “orange peel” chin, Botox may be the answer. Unwanted chin dimpling can be caused by muscle contractions. Botox injections can relax these muscles in the chin to create a smoother, more pleasant-appearing chin.
Get Rid of Your Rabbit Nose
The lines that appear on your nose when you scrunch it up are called bunny lines. If you are unhappy having a nose that looks like a rabbit, a few carefully placed Botox injections can be the solution.
Slim a Wide Jaw
A slimmer jaw is preferred if you want a feminine appearance. The masseter muscles, the largest jaw muscles, can make the jaw appear wider and more masculine. Botox injections can provide masseter reduction by relaxing these muscles, allowing them to shrink in size. This can create a more oval or heart-shaped face in individuals with wide jaws.
Another benefit of jawline Botox treatments is the reduction of jowling. Heavy jowls are one of the most distinct features of aging – it is the main reason people seek facelifts when they get older. Botox injections along the jawline can help reduce jowling for a more youthful facial appearance.
Say No to Turkey Neck
No one wants a neck that looks like a turkey. Aging can create more pronounced neck cords and lines, which can be the start of an unwanted turkey waddle. Botox is an excellent treatment for neck lines and cords, creating a more youthful, svelte neckline.
