Botox has been used for decades and is the subject of countless long-term safety studies which show that is an effective and comprehensive treatment to reduce wrinkles around the eyes and upper face. It is well complemented by dermal fillers which can further enhance your look without surgery. In our Santa Monica plastic surgery office, we combine dermal fillers with Botox injections to reduce visible wrinkles and volumize the skin .
Some of the more common areas for Botox injections include the following:

Forehead Wrinkles

The most popular reason to undergo Botox injections is to reduce horizontal wrinkles on the forehead and in between the eyebrows. We refer to some of these wrinkles as "" 11s" and they form a visible and telltale sign of aging on the upper face. Botox injections are used in the forehead to carefully reduce these horizontal lines on the forehead and minimize scowl lines between the eyes. This treatment can enhance your natural eyebrow arch and visibly liven the features of the hairline, forehead, and eyebrows. Most injections take a few minutes to perform and results are seen between one and five days after surgery  treatment.

Wrinkles around the eyes

We often refer to wrinkles around the eyes as crows feet. These lines are more visible when squinting or during facial expression. Small amounts of Botox can be used at the lateral tail of the eyebrow, along the areas around crowfeet , and underneath the eyelid to smooth hyperactive muscles that are causing contractions of the skin and wrinkly.

Bunny lines on the nose

Some wrinkles are formed when the nose is scrunched up to the eyelids and these lines are commonly referred to as bunny lines. Botox is an excellent nonsurgical treatment for bunny lines around the nose  and upper cheeks.

Masseter and TMJ

Teeth clenching and grinding can lead to a gradual wearing down of the molars in the mouth. When this occurs, Dentists can often diagnose masseter hypertrophy which causes the teeth to clinch and grind together. With time, masseter hypertrophy can damage the intricate lining of the TMJ can cause arthritic changes with bone erosion . Patients who have an abnormal smile, overactive masseter muscles, or evidence of teeth grinding and clenching can benefit from Botox injections that are carefully placed into the masseter muscles of the face.

Platysmal bands

Overactive neck muscles can also cause vertical bands in the neck that can be quite  aging to the lower face. Dr. Karamanoukian performs Botox injections into overactive platysmal bands that are vertically aligned on the neck. By treating these vertical neck bands, the neck can look smoother and more youthful without a neck lift or surgery. Depending on the amount of platysmal banding,  injections can be used alone to help treat this area.

Parotid hypertrophy

Recent clinical studies have shown the effects efficacy of Botox injections and reducing the net bulk of tissue related to parotid hypertrophy. Small amounts of Botox injections can be placed into the glands of the parotid  to reduce their size and prominence.
