Which areas of the face can Botox improve?

Nothing makes you feel as old as wrinkles do, and I'm the type of person that gets obsessed even about fine lines. I've been studying my face in the mirror since I was in my 20s and got my first wrinkle. Now I'm just trying to guess where my next ones will be. That's why I came to the conclusion that Botox might be what I need right now. I don't know much about injectables, except Botox is the most common one. What areas of the face can it fix?

Botox is helpful for the lines between the eyebrows (glabella), forehead horizontal lines (frontalis), and Crow's feet (lines around the eyes when smiling). It can also be used judiciously around the mouth to help reduce "smoker's lines" and other locations, but less frequently. Sometimes fine lines are also addressed with laser resurfacing, fillers or chemical peels, as well as newer techniques like microneedling, depending on the patient. In-person assessment is required for a plastic surgeon to tell you which approaches (s)he thinks would work best for you.

It is used most commonly on the forehead and between the eyebrows (glabella).  It can also be used around the mouth and eyes.  It is very effective and safe.  See a board certified plastic surgeon and have a consultation.
