BOTOX TREATMENT AREAS FOR COSMETIC ENHANCEMENT
Some areas require more units than others, and some also respond better to treatment than others. Depending on the area treated, Botox will last for 3-6 months.
FOREHEAD (FDA APPROVED DOSE 20 UNITS)
The forehead is the most common Botox injection site, as it's where many people first see the signs of aging. Horizontal wrinkles along the brow are easily treated with Botox injections. Must be treated in conjunction with the glabella.
BETWEEN EYEBROWS (FDA APPROVED DOSE 20 UNITS)
The area between your eyebrows is known as the glabella or "11" lines. Treating this area may provide a medial brow lift and correct a scowl or angry appearance for a more vibrant look.
UPPER EYEBROW (2-5 UNITS EACH SIDE, OFF LABEL)
Botox injected into the upper eyebrow can mimic the effects of an eyebrow lift by relaxing the muscles that cause upper eyelids to droop.
CROW'S FEET (FDA APPROVED DOSE 12 UNITS EACH SIDE)
The lateral canthal lines, or Crow's feet, appear at the corner of the eye when smiling and may eventually become deeply etched. The skin around our eyes is thin and delicate and is often one of the areas where we first display signs of aging. i
BUNNY LINES (3-6 UNITS EACH SIDE, OFF LABEL)
Bunny lines, otherwise known as nasalis lines, are the wrinkles on the side of your nose when you scrunch your face, smile or laugh. They often upwards to the lower eyelid.
DIMPLED CHIN (8-10 UNITS, OFF LABEL)

SMILE LINES (4-8 UNITS EACH SIDE, OFF LABEL)

LIP FLIP (6-10 UNITS, OFF LABEL)

GUMMY SMILE TREATMENT (2-4 UNITS, OFF LABEL)
Botox can be injected into the muscles that cause excessive gingival show AKA gummy smile. This may be combined with lip filler for optimal outcomes.
MASSETER REDUCTION (30-50 UNITS PER SIDE, OFF LABEL)
