What Areas of the Face Can Be Treated With Botox?

Botox is the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the United States. It is versatile enough to be used virtually anywhere on the face and effective enough to make people thrilled with their appearance.

In essence, Botox blocks the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. The result is that it smooths lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements, such as frowning, squinting, smiling, pursing the lips, and laughing. 

The following are the most common areas of the face that respond well to Botox treatments. 


As you age, lines and wrinkles from your natural facial expressions begin to show, particularly on the forehead. These wrinkles are nearly impossible to hide with makeup or hairstyles. That is why so many people choose Botox to lessen the appearance of forehead lines.

Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are the tiny wrinkles that extend from the outside corners of your eyes, often caused by laughter and smiling. On one hand, they signal a lifetime of smiles. On the other hand, they give away your advancing age. They are a top choice for Botox help. 

Smoker’s Lines

The vertical lines above the top lip are often called smoker’s lines because they are common in smokers. However, even using a straw or pursing the lips out of habit can cause these lines to appear. Botox can help reduce the appearance of these noticeable lines. 

Frown Lines

Those lines that appear between your eyebrows when you frown or furrow your brows cause permanent lines, often called 11 lines because they look like the numeral. Botox is a perfect remedy for lessening the appearance of these lines. 

Marionette Lines

These lines extend from the corners of the mouth down toward the jaw, resembling a marionette. These lines often cause the mouth to droop as well. Small amounts of Botox can help soften these lines. 

Neck Bands

The neck does not escape the effects of aging. You may notice bands or cords in your neck as you age as the platysma muscles start to sag. Botox can help soften the appearance of these unsightly bands. Do note, however, that Botox cannot help with excess or loose skin or fat in the neck area. 

Bunny Lines

This is the term used for the lines on either side of the nose when you crinkle your nose. They often extend from the bridge of the nose up toward the lower eyelids. Botox can reduce the appearance of these fine lines. 

Sagging Eyebrows

While surgical procedures are highly effective for lifting eyebrows, Botox may be able to help, too, as it relaxes the muscles that cause the brow to sag. Doctors will also often use fillers under the brow to enhance the lift. 

Excessive Sweating

Botox can also help reduce sweating in the armpits, palms of the hand, and soles of the feet.
