Five Secret Ways to Use Botox
Updated: Jan 6, 2019
When people mention Botox, most of us think of pesky wrinkles. However, there are some not-so-obvious uses for the toxin. I thought I'd let you in on some secrets.
1.The Eyebrow Lift
Low positioned eyebrows or droopy upper eyelids convey a sad or tired appearance. A few Botox injections placed at the correct location can open up the eyes reducing any droop. This can be taken one step further to sculpt the ideal female eyebrow, creating an eyebrow with a lateral arch.
This is a very subtle effect, and it is unlikely that anyone is your social circle will know that you have had Botox, but you may find people commenting on how refreshed and rested you look. Can't go wrong with that!
2. Jaw slimming:
Some people have prominent or squared-shaped jaws. This is partly due to an enlarged masster muscle, a muscle wrapped around the lower jaw that is active during chewing. Botox injections to this muscle can slim the jaw creating a feminine V shaped lower face. Added benefit: stops teeth grinding!.
3. Smokers Lines
Smokers lines are those vertical lines that form around the mouth. You don't have to be a smoker to have them, but people who smoke are more likely to develop these noticeable wrinkles. They are caused by the repeated action of the Orbicularis Oris muscle and well placed Botox injections can smooth them out. This treatment works best when combined with dermal fillers a few weeks after.
Bunny lines are wrinkles that form on the sides of the nose when we frown, squint or smile. Not everyone is bothered by these lines, but they can show up in pictures and selfies. Botox injections to the Nasalis muscle reduces the appearance of the lines, smoothing out the nose in no time.
5. Gummy Smile
A gummy smile is the result of too much upper lip retraction when we smile. A lot of the gum shows, and the lip also turns in on itself appearing smaller. The muscle responsible is the elevator labii superiors alaeque nasi and Botox injections to it lessen the amount of lip retraction. It also has added benefits of reducing nasolabial or smile lines and making the upper lip appear thicker. Three for the price of one!!
