What is Botox used for? 


What is Botox used for? As you age, your face will begin to show fine lines and wrinkles due to loss of skin elasticity. While cosmetic surgery procedures such as facelift are available, many women and men now seek non-surgical alternatives for facial rejuvenation.  

You may choose Botox injections as a tried and tested way to mitigate facial signs of aging in a quick and safe manner without involving surgery. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides Botox treatments to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding locations. 

Improving Frown Lines and Crow’s Feet 

Botox was first approved for the cosmetic reduction of frown lines in 2002. Ever since then, it has continued to be the number one non-surgical treatment to reduce fine lines and wrinkles between the brows and horizontal lines on the forehead. These dynamic facial lines can be reduced most effectively with Botox.  

The FDA additionally approved Botox cosmetic treatment in 2013 for the reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes. If you are bothered by the appearance of fine lines emanating from the far corners of your eyes, you can choose Botox as a proven way to temporarily remove these aging signs. 

In addition, a qualified Botox injector can use the treatment for various off-label facial wrinkle reduction purposes. You should talk to your plastic surgeon about your specific facial aging concerns, and they may recommend Botox as a standalone treatment or in combination with dermal filler injections.  

Botox Use in Specific Facial Areas 

Botox may be used independently, or in combination with plastic surgery procedures such as chin lift, cheek lift, brow lift, eyelid lift, nose job, or facial fat transfer to create comprehensive results. These combinations enable the surgeon to produce more natural looking results in a less invasive manner.  

Specific areas of the face where Botox provides maximum benefits include: 


Repetitive facial and eye muscle movements can cause dynamic lines around the eyes. Such wrinkles are quite responsive to Botox. This treatment only affects the wrinkle-causing muscle and does not impact nerve sensation. Aging signs often first show up around the eyes. Timely treatment with Botox can make your eyes and upper face appear rejuvenated. 


Facial expressions such as frowning, laughing, and smiling can lead to conspicuous wrinkles over time due to repetitive movements. Botox is meant to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in an effective manner. Men can also consider Botox injections to improve the appearance of furrowed brows. 


The appearance of horizontal lines on the forehead can create a tired, old, and angry facial look. Other than a constant expression, aging effects can also cause deep creases on the forehead. Botox helps reduce the appearance of these wrinkles as it relaxes the overactive wrinkle-forming muscle. Botox is a popular treatment for horizontal forehead lines.  

Jaw Contouring 

Botox experts have used this treatment to enhance jaw contours in recent times. The face may appear square shaped if the jaw muscles (used for chewing) are significant. Many men also seek a stronger jawline. Botox and dermal fillers administered together can help attain a desirable jawline.
