Learn The Best Injection Spots For Botox® For Facial Lines
Botox® for facial lines has been safely used for many years to treat spasms of the muscles that move the eye (strabismus) and uncontrollable blinking (blepharospasm). In 2002 it was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use, and since that time it has been marketed as Botox® Cosmetic.
Many facial wrinkles and creases are active lines caused by muscle contraction, which can be blocked by Botox® injections. The effect is temporary, usually lasting 3 to 6 months. With repeated injection, the effect may regularly last up to 5 or 6 months. Although some wrinkles and creases may completely disappear (temporarily), it is important to understand that some may improve but not completely disappear.
Upper Face Botox® , Dysport, Injections | Botox ® on Forehead
- Crow’s Feet: around the eyes
- Vertical frown lines: between the eyebrows (also known as the “elevens” or 11s)
- Worry lines: horizontal lines on the forehead
- Lateral brow lift: just below the lateral aspect of the eyebrow
Mid Face Botox® Injections | BOTOX ® for TMJ | Botox for a Slimmer Jaw
- Masseter muscle: located in the posterior portion of the jaw near the temporomandibular joint. This reduces jowls in some clients and provides pain relief from those suffering from clenching or grinding, especially at night time. In addition to providing relief, Botox for TMJ has the added effect of jaw-slimming.
Lower Face Botox® Injections | Botox Neck Bands
- Vertical upper and lower lip lines: to reduce muscle bands in the anterior neck
- Depressor Anguli Oris (DAO’s): correct downward pull angle on the mouth
Botox for Frown Lines to Reduce Downward Frown & Marionette Lines
Botox® for frown lines at the corners of the mouth can be very easily treated to provide a transformative result. This very important area can be shaped with Botox. Frown lines are called the DAO muscle. The DAO muscle stands for Depressor Anguli Oris, and it’s that muscle that goes from the corner of the mouth down. When we contract that muscle it causes marionette lines that causes a sad expression, a downward frown. A lot of patients do this even if they’re not angry or sad, it may just be a habit that is formed over time. It can also be a hereditary trait.
When the DAO muscle is injected with Botox® or Dysport, it relaxes the muscle. After Botox® or Dysport is expertly administered to the corners of the mouth, you will no longer be able to make negative expressions of the downward frown that causes an involuntary sad or upset expression.
How Can I Correct Frown Lines with Botox®?
Sometimes people will come in for a consultation with one of the Botox Nurse injectors at Blue Water Spa and ask for an overall assessment of their face. Some people recognize this area as an issue. Not everyone would benefit from Botox® to the corners of the mouth. This small injection can make the most powerful impact as it is subtle, but it makes people look happier and more youthful. Sometimes a bit of filler can be used to fill these lines, but too much filler can make the lower face look heavy and full. An improper amount of filler can actually make a person look older and can negatively impact the proportions of the face, which is why it is so important to consult with experienced nurse injectors. PRF can also be used in this area, and other areas of the face where a person wants rejuvenation without adding fullness.
Can I get BOTOX ® for Migraines? How Do The Injection Locations Help?
BOTOX ® for migraines has been proven to reduce tension associated with migraine headaches. The glabellum (or muscle group between the brow) can exacerbate migraine symptoms. Clients report relief from this secondary tension between the brows in as little as 4 days post injection.
At Blue Water Spa, our Botox nurse injectors have advanced training to treat the vice-like grip of the glabellum conservatively, but not dismiss the aesthetic portion. This muscle group is technique dependent as to soften the pull that contributes to migraine symptoms without lowering the medial or lateral brow. Migraines tend to be circumferential by nature, and to remove the frontal muscle group variable leaves clients feeling a reduction in symptoms and frequency. Many clients who receive this treatment from our nurse injectors at Blue Water Spa call it “life changing”.
Can BOTOX ® Treat TMJ and Grinding Teeth? YES!
BOTOX ® can treat TMJ and grinding teeth providing incredible relief. Severe, migraine-like headaches and chronic facial and neck pain are often caused by temporomandibular disorder, often referred to as TMJ or TMD. The temporomandibular joints connect your skull to your lower jawbone. You use these joints every day to chew, speak, yawn and swallow. TMJ can create a number of painful complications such as:
- Chronic headaches
- Teeth grinding or clenching (bruxism)
- Ear pain
- Clicking or popping of the jaw joint
- Shoulder and neck aches
- Facial pain
Can BOTOX ® Correct a Gummy Smile?
An expert Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and other neuromodulators nurse injector can assess and determine if you would be a good candidate for BOTOX ® for a gummy smile in this area to soften the “pull” felt upon smiling and naturally allow the lip to cover more gummy show without looking unnatural. This procedure takes less than 5 minutes and is often performed 3-4 times a year with a very low amount of BOTOX ®. Clients often describe this as a “life changing” injection as they don’t have to think about trying to hide gum exposure upon animation. Another option for correcting a gummy smile is lip filler, which can be discussed during your complimentary consultation to see which treatment is best for you.

BOTOX ® for Neck Near Me
The softening of the bands can also provide a slimming effect to the central neck. Oftentimes the platysmal bands will be prominent upon smiling or often clients will say they notice them in photos. This procedure is technique dependent as to provide optimal results with the least amount of BOTOX ® for neck slimming necessary.
What’s the Difference Between BOTOX ® Lip Flip vs Filler?
If you’re looking for more noticeable volume addition and help with projecting lip definition, filler will most likely be the treatment for you. A Botox or Dysport lip flip concentrates to the cupid’s bow and yields a very natural accentuation for a more subtle plump and result. Many patients want to notice a more dramatic change to their lip definition and opt for filler. A more subtle enhancement would recommend a lip flip. Many women combine the two for both projection and definition. To best decide what is the solution for your goals, a complimentary consultation will guide you for the procedure to help you feel your best!

Botox vs Dysport vs Xeomin, and other Neuromodulators | Best Antiwrinkle Injections
Fine lines and wrinkles naturally form on our faces as a result of making expressions such as frowning, laughing, squinting, or smiling. When these lines make people look unpleasant, cross, or older than they feel, they may elect to soften these lines using a neuromodulator. At the moment, there are three FDA approved neuromodulators that have been proven safe and effective: Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. Dysport, Xeomin, and Botox are all good neurotoxins but one of them may respond better in a certain patient.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are all FDA approved for the temporary reduction or elimination of wrinkles. They are all neurotoxins or muscle relaxers but have different brand names. A comparison that can be used is to say Colgate, Crest, Sensodyne are all different types of toothpaste, but they all do the same thing. Dysport starts to work in about 2-3 days so if someone has an event coming up, Dysport can be a good option if you need fast results. If a patient doesn’t respond well to Botox anymore, switching it up to Dysport or Xeomin is a good option. There is a particular protein around the Botox molecule that certain people may get used to, so these patients may respond better to another neurotoxin. Dysport and Botox both contain added proteins not found in Xeomin. These proteins enable them to last a little longer. The most important consideration is – who is the provider performing the treatment? There are some injectors who may start performing injections after a single day of training. Others who know just the basics of a single product. And still others, like the injectors at Blue Water Spa and Blue Water Plastic Surgery with expertise with all neuromodulators and can customize treatments for patients. Advanced procedures like slimming the jawline, and lifting a chin that droops when smiling are nuanced procedures that require significant experience. Overall, our pricing is the same for all neurotoxins.
