Treatment of Frown Lines

The FDA approved Botox in 2002. Since then, it remains one of the most popular non-invasive anti-aging treatments for signs of facial aging. Botox is mainly used to treat frown lines on the forehead and between the brows, and crow’s feet around the eyes.

While these applications of Botox are FDA-approved, a certified provider of Botox can additionally use it for aesthetic purposes not published on the label. These may include treating wrinkles around the base of the nose and other facial areas.

Medical and Aesthetic Benefits

Botulinum toxin type A is the active component of Botox. This is a robust biological agent that helps relax overactive muscles in the face that lead to wrinkles. After the muscles relax temporarily with a minute quantity of this neurotoxin, the skin appears smoother, and the lines and wrinkles subside or disappear entirely. Furthermore, Botox is FDA approved to address specific medical conditions such as involuntary eye muscle movement.

Botox may be used as an independent cosmetic medical spa treatment. At the same time, it is also used as an ancillary treatment along with facial aesthetic surgery such as eyelid lift, face lift, or brow lift to produce optimal outcomes. These combinations allow surgeons to generate more natural appearing results and perform less invasive procedures.

Botox Use in Specific Facial Sites


Recurring muscle movements in the eyes and face can lead to dynamic lines around the eyes. Such wrinkles respond quite well to Botox. This treatment only relaxes the wrinkle-causing muscle and does not impact nerve sensation.


Facial expressions such as laughing, frowning, and smiling can cause permanent wrinkles over a period due to recurring movements. Botox is designed to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in an efficient way. Men can also benefit from a Botox treatment if they want to improve the appearance of furrowed brows.


Visible horizontal lines on the forehead can cause the face to look tired, old, and angry. Besides constant expressions, effects of aging can cause permanent creases on the forehead. Botox can assist in reducing the appearance of wrinkles as it relaxes the formation on the wrinkle-causing muscles beneath the skin. Botox is an effective treatment for horizontal forehead lines.

Jaw Contouring

Botox experts have efficiently used Botox to improve jaw contours in recent years. The face may seem square shaped if the jaw muscles, which are used for chewing, are considerable. Several men also prefer a stronger jawline. Botox and dermal fillers together can help achieve this type of jawline.
