The Three Most Common Areas for Botox® Injections

Botox injections are widely used for a variety of cosmetic reasons. Their most common application is to the muscles and skin on the face, helping relax them and reducing the presence of fine lines and wrinkles.

There are three main sites where botox injections are most commonly injected:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet lines around the eyes
  • Vertical ‘11’ lines between eyebrows
before and after botox

Forehead wrinkles

Commonly called frown lines, this is probably the most common site amongst the three above where botox is injected.

The forehead muscles are constantly being used and the skin is constantly under stress, so it is natural for frown lines and wrinkles to form. 

It is considered one of the first signs of ageing, which is why this is targeted first. Treatment is simple, quick and effective and requires no anaesthesia. Effects can last up to 6 months.

Crow's feet lines around the eyes

Crow’s feet refer to fine lines that form at the corners of the eyes due to constant muscle use. It is an unfortunate yet unavoidable sign of ageing. 

Botox injections can effectively reduce these lines without giving the skin a stretched appearance, restoring the look that younger, healthier skin appears like.

Vertical '11' Lines

These refer to the two lines between the eyebrows that form when frowning. 

Botox® injections are useful in reducing the depth of these lines and smoothens them out effectively. 

The procedure takes around 10 to 15 minutes to perform and the results are excellent.

These are the top 3 sites where Botox® is injected on the face. 

There are other sites such as chin lifts and botox injections around the mouth that may be performed, but these are a lot rarer. 

Botox® still remains one of the most preferred treatments when it comes to achieving great cosmetic results that will result in younger looking skin devoid of fine lines and wrinkles.
