Most Common Anti-Wrinkle Injection Areas – Top Five
Anti-wrinkle injections, also known as botulinum toxin injections or Botox, are used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. The most common anti-wrinkle injection areas include:
Forehead wrinkles: These horizontal lines that appear on the forehead when you raise your eyebrows are a common target for anti-wrinkle injections.
Frown lines: Also known as the glabella or eleven lines, are vertical lines between the eyebrows that appear when you frown.
Crow’s feet: These are the fine lines that appear around the corners of the eyes when you smile or squint.
Bunny lines: These are the wrinkles that appear on either side of the nose when you scrunch it up.
Smoker Lines: Also known as barcode lines, are little vertical lines above the upper lip that develop around the mouth because of the frequent pouting, smoking and drinking through straws.
It’s important to note that while these are the most common anti-wrinkle injection areas, botox or other types of similar toxins can be used to treat other areas of the face such as:
BROW LIFT: A brow lift is a non-surgical and non-invasive method of reducing wrinkles in the eye area and lifting sagging or hooded skin above the eyes. The treatment combines Anti-wrinkle injections and thread-lifting treatments.
