Botox is still the most common and popular cosmetic treatment aiming to treat muscle conditions but mostly used for cosmetic purposes. Botox stands for botulinum toxin which is a group of molecules produced by the bacteria clostridium botulinum. It acts like a neurotoxin in the body temporarily paralysing muscles and thus smoothing out wrinkles on the treated areas. Since Botox is used in a minimal amount for wrinkles and it wears off in about 3-6 months, it is an absolutely harmless procedure. In case you are considering to try it, now we share the 5 most popular Botox areas with you.

1. Forehead

Forehead is the flattest, biggest and most conspicuous part of the face where wrinkles often start to appear first. The reason is the constant muscle movement and stress of the area so signs of aging tend to show up here first. Because of this, forehead is the most common area treated with Botox.

2. Vertical frown lines

Also known as glabellar lines, this is the area between the eyebrows which is also commonly in movement when frowning or winking, especially outdoor with strong sunshine. Depending on skin type and lifestyle, these wrinkles can deepen throughout the years and can be seen even when the face is at rest.

3. Crow’s feet

Crow’s feet are the group of wrinkles radiating outwards from the corners of the eyes. Their presence has several reasons, like smiling, laughing, frowning or winking – literally all facial expressions involve muscle contractions in this area. It is natural and unavoidable to have wrinkles here though Botox reduce them effectively and can achieve a pleasant look.

4. Brows

The most common brow issue is sagging or dropping, which can make the face look older than it actually is. It can occur due to skin type and the different ways of aging. Luckily, Botox can be applied on this area to lift the brows and achieve a youngish, refreshed look.

5. Nose

Nasal “bunny lines” run across the bridge of the nose. These wrinkles appear due to the movement of nasal’s muscle in the nose used when smiling or grimacing. It requires only a small amount of Botox to make them disappear which is why it is an ideal way to make them gone.

Though Botox efficiently reduces the appearance of wrinkles, it is important to know that it affects only muscles. It means that wrinkles caused by aging or sun damage can still occur despite having a Botox treatment.
