Forehead Lines

Botox is injected into forehead lines to treat wrinkles by smoothening both horizontal and vertical lines. As well as that, Botox injections work with the muscles that create forehead lines to smooth out the appearance of the forehead.

Crows Feet

The term “crow’s feet” or lateral canthal lines, refers to the lines that form around the corners of the eyes. Another injection site is the “crow’s feet”  and it is reduced with Botox injections. Perfecting your Botox injection technique to inject at the lateral canthal lines will make your clients look younger.

Dimpled Chin

A dimpled chin refers to the “pits” that form due to the mentalis muscle contracting too much. Oftentimes, the contractions in the mentalis muscle are involuntary. Botox injections onto either side of the chin will help reduce the “dimpled” appearance of the chin.

Another injection site is the “marionette lines” which refer to the long vertical lines that lay laterally on either side of the mouth. In addition, “marionette lines,” are also known as melomental folds. Melomental folds are the creases that extend from the corners of the mouth to the chin.
