What Is Botox?

Botox is a commercial name for botulinum toxin injections. According to Satriyasa (2019), botulinum toxin injections are administered into the muscles, stopping the formation of more wrinkles and reducing the existing ones. The results are almost immediate; Dutta et al. (2016) claimed that it takes about 2-3 days to notice the skin has begun to smoothen after botulinum toxin injections. Jacinto et al. (2020) noted that results are not permanent and last 3-4 months after botulinum toxin treatment.

Facial Areas Where Botox Can Be Administered

The facial areas where botulinum toxin injections  can be administered include:

Eyes

The aging symptomsbotox can treat in the eye area include:

Crow’s feet

The appearance of crow’s feet in the eye area is among the early signs of aging. Signs of aging may make patients uncomfortable. Crow’s feet can also appear on young patients’ faces because the area around the eye is delicate.The frequent motion of the muscles makes it possible for any client to have crow’s feet, even at a young age. Crow’s feet become noticed when smiling, but they become more permanentwith time due to the loss of collagen in the area. This resultsinthe formation of thin skin. According to Cao et al. (2018), when botox is injected into crow’s feet, it helps reduce their appearance since it relaxes the muscles responsible for their formation.

Upper face

Cosmetic doctors can administer Botox on the upper face as follows:

Forehead Wrinkles

Overworking the forehead muscles and frequent movementssuch as raising the eyebrows may lead to the formation of forehead wrinkles. According toEldin et al. (2021), forehead wrinkles are caused by sun rays, collagen reduction, and the skin loss its elasticity. Although patients cannot avoid the formation of forehead lines, it can be prevented and erased with botulinum toxins. Patients may notice effects for two to three days.Ahn et al. (2019) suggested that results may last three to four months after receiving botulinum toxin treatments.Patients can go for top-ups to increase the longevity of the effects.

Frown Lines

Glabellar lines,also known as frown lines, are in vertical form and appear on the nose and between the eyebrows. These lines become noticed even at a young age when frowning, but they are temporal. While aging, they deepen and can be noticed even without frowning. They may also appear due to too many facial expressions resulting from premature aging.Brodoehl et al. (2019) claimed thatbotulinum toxin treatmenthinders signals from the brain to the muscles, causing relaxation. This helps reduce frown lines.

BunnyLines

Bunny lines appear on the nose sides. The formation of bunny lines, like many common aging symptoms, is due to overworking muscles. Satriyasa (2019) showed that a cosmetic doctor could use botulinumtoxin treatments to prevent the appearance of bunny lines.

Lower Face

Botox canbe used in the lower face areas such as;

Neck Bands

Neck bands are also known as neck wrinkles. They do not appear when clients grow old. They show even at a younger age,even in rare circumstances like exercising. This isbecause the body produces enough collagen, making them less visible. While aging, collagen production reduces, and bodies lose fats making the neck bands more noticeable. According to Farber et al. (2020), botulinum toxin injections can be administeredto reverse the formation of neck bands, leaving a flawless, tighter and smoother neck.

Marionette Lines

Marionettes are vertical lines exiting from the mouth corners down the chin. They make the skin sag affecting facial expressions; a client may look angry.The thinness of the skin on the mouth area leads to the formation ofmarionette lines. The skin loses its elasticity and reduces the generation of more collagen. This makes the skin sag.Marionette lines are hardly noticed at a younger age, but they become deeper and more noticeable after some time.According to Sameera et al. (2021), botulinum toxin injections help minimize the appearance of marionette lines.

Smokers Lines

Smokers’ lines, commonly known as lip lines, appear between the upper lip and the nose due to old age. They are not harmful and do not result in any major discomfort, but they change a youthful look and make it appear bold. Smoking, continuous facial gestures, collagen reduction due to old age, sun exposure, and genes may cause smoker’s lines. However, quitting smoking cannot reduce the appearance of smokers’ lines. Rizzi et al. (2021) revealed that botulinum toxin injections help muscles relax,pausing the generation of more smoker lines.

Conclusion

Embracing old age symptoms is not simple, mostly when they come prematurely. Clients look for ways of reversing and preventing aging symptoms. Botulinum toxin injection is a quick and effective way of treating wrinkles and bunny lines with almost immediate results leaving smooth and glowing skin. A cosmetic doctor can administer these injections in several facial areas like the eyes, where they treat the crow’s feet, the middle face, and forehead lines. They are also administered on the lower face, treating the marionette lines and the neck bands.
