Where on my face can I get Botox?
Injectable wrinkle relaxers can treat crow’s feet, get rid of forehead wrinkles, as well as give your skin an overall smooth glow.
Smooths skin and gives a beautiful glow? Can I put it all over my body?
Unfortunately, wrinkle relaxers have areas they work well in and those they don’t. Common areas for cosmetic wrinkle relaxer treatments are:
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Vertical lines between eyebrows
- Crow’s feet around eyes
These areas tend to be game changers in both the preventative Botox treatment realm and for people in their 50s and 60s. Wrinkle relaxers like Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport can slow down the signs of aging by reducing the visibility and formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Depending on your anatomy and goals, there are a few other areas that work well with wrinkle relaxers too like:
- Upper lip
Your licensed injector will be able to guide you on what areas will be best for you and your aesthetic goals during your one-on-one consultation.

How do wrinkle relaxers work?
Wrinkle relaxer injections work by targeting the muscles of facial expressions to reduce movement and therefore the repeated creasing of the skin (aka wrinkles).
Your facial muscles all work together for every expression you make. Over time as your body reduces its collagen production (for most, around the age of 30), those movements create fine lines and wrinkles.
Let’s envision your forehead. Your treatment will relax the forehead muscles, limiting their movement.
Because your skin isn’t constantly folding and creasing, you prevent forehead wrinkles from eventually turning into permanent deep lines and dynamic wrinkles.
Meet the magic duo.
As magical as wrinkle relaxers are, they can’t restore volume in the same way that dermal fillers can, which is why so many people are combing fillers and wrinkle relaxers.
Areas like frown lines are often a result of not only low collagen but also lost volume.
Having dermal fillers and wrinkle-relaxing treatments together bring back that youthful fullness while also relaxing the muscle to reduce and prevent wrinkles.
There are plenty of treatment options and combinations to help you get to your aesthetic goals, but don’t feel overwhelmed if you’re not sure what you need or want.
Your licensed injector is there to guide and create a treatment plan just for you based on your areas of concern, goals, and anatomy.
Want to hear a skincare secret?
Don’t skip the eye cream. And by that, we mean your SPF and skincare regimen.
Prevention with SPF and a consistent skincare routine are some of the best paths to the fountain of youth.
Even the best Medspa treatments are limited without your commitment to a solid medical-grade skincare routine.
Think of treatments like going to the dentist every six months and skincare like brushing your teeth twice daily.
Of course, if you can do both, you’re in a great place. But if you had to choose one, which do you think is going to make you feel your best and give you the most bang for your buck?
For us, it's the daily routine over the occasional treatment.
