Most common areas for Botox injections in Edmonton

Forehead lines

We considered a smile as one of the most beautiful facial expression. But, not everything about a smile is beautiful, as most of us show deep lines, the lines that appear around the eyes. It takes 22 muscles to work together to give a simple smile. Also, we use the same muscles to produce a frown. Even though some muscles work to produce a smile, we can help you to produce a line-free smile. We can achieve this by injecting Botox in the orbicularis oculi, which is the muscle around the eyes. The treatment can cause a drooping eyelid (lazy eye) as a side effect

Frown Lines

Year after year,  we develop lines or creases on our forehead. These lines start small and tiny but eventually, grow deep. They are referred to as timelines, but this treatment can relax the frontalis muscle and decrease its activity. This protects us from developing forehead lines and from looking older.

Smile lines

We also refer to them as crows feet. There are over 37 muscles that work together to form our smile. botulinum toxin injection (Botox or Dysport) relaxes some muscles around the mouth and eyes to eliminate smile lines safely and effectively. We target 4 muscles in specific to reduce the smile lines Depress Anguli Oris (DAO), Orbicularis Oris (OO), Levator labii superioris and the Orbicularis Ocli.
