How Can Botox Improve the Lower Half of the Face?
Botox, also known as Botulinum toxin, is a popular cosmetic treatment used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. While it commonly used for the upper face, like the forehead and around the eyes, Botox can also benefit the appearance of the lower half of the face.
For the lower half of the face, it includes the jawline, chin, lips, and corners of the mouth and marionette lines. Botox treatments can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the lower face by relaxing the muscles that cause them. This can in turn create a smoother, more youthful appearance. Botox works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. The prevents the muscles from contracting, which can cause wrinkles and fine lines.
Botox injected into different parts of the face can provide different results. For instance, Botox injected into the chin can reduce the appearance of dimpling or puckering of the chin. It can also provide a more defined, V-shaped chin. For marionette lines, these lines run from of the corners of the mouth to the chin. Botox can get rid of wrinkles and fine lines in this area by preventing movement in this area. When it comes to the lips, Botox can be injected to reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines around the mouth. Furthermore, it can give a subtle lip flip, which gives the illusion of bigger lips to create a fuller, more youthful lip. Lastly, Botox can also lessen the appearance of jowls. It does this by lifting and tightening the sagging areas of the skin on either side on either side of the chin. This in turn can provide a more defined jawline and more youthful appearance.
