You’re probably aware of Botox treatments used to reduce the effects of ageing. But do you know which areas of the face can be treated?
If you’re in Hampshire, call us for a full Botox treatment consultation. But firstly, let’s get acquainted with the areas of the upper face that you might want to address, including:
Between the eyebrows. Frown lines – vertical creases – can gather here, lending a tired or angry look. These can be smoothed very effectively, resulting in a rejuvenated and more relaxed appearance.
Top of the nose. ‘Bunny lines’ are creases that appear when we wrinkle up our nose. Botox injections at either side of the nose can reduce their appearance.
Eyebrows. The brow can drop with age, giving the eyelid a ‘hooded’ appearance. This can create horizontal folds in the surrounding skin. A ‘chemical brow lift’ or ‘Botox facelift’ can be administered to open up the eye area and lift droopy lids.
Around the eyes. Wrinkles (commonly known as crow’s feet) form at the outer corners of the eyes. Botox is very effective in reducing their appearance hence this procedure is one of the most popular.
Under the eyes. Fine creases that form underneath the eyes can be smoothed.
The forehead. ‘Surprise lines’ appear when we raise our eyebrows, becoming more apparent with age. Excessive lines can give the face and skin an aged appearance. Botox can lessen the effect though may not remove the lines completely.

If you’re interested in areas that can be treated on the lower face, these include:
The Chin. The muscles in the chin become overactive with age, creating a dimpled, puckered appearance. Botox may be used to relax these muscles, thereby smoothing and reducing the overall dimpled effect.
Jawline and Neck. Lines and wrinkles can develop horizontally and vertically on the neck (the latter known as ‘Turkey neck’). Botox can be used very effectively to smooth and relax the lines in a procedure called the ‘Nefertiti lift’.
Jaw Angle. Prolonged episodes of teeth grinding and jaw clenching (also known as ‘bruxism’) can result in worn teeth, headaches and earaches. The muscles can be relaxed by injecting Botox into the jaw area.
If you’re in Hampshire and you’re interested in any of the above procedures, call us for a full Botox treatment consultation.
