Botox Injections for Forehead Lines

Botox injections are used for reducing forehead lines and wrinkles, giving you a younger look.

Forehead muscles targeted for Botox treatment

  1. Frontalis muscle: This is the muscle that covers the forehead. The Frontalis muscle heightens horizontal forehead lines when it contracts. Botox is administered horizontally along the frontalis muscle.
  2. Orbicularis Oculi muscle: This is a ring shaped muscle around the eye. The Orbicularis oculi is injected with Botox on the outside edge of the eyebrow to lift it. This is known as a lateral (outside) eyebrow lift.

Botox treatment technique

The area is cleaned and the skin overlying the muscles to be injected is marked with a skin marker. The injection points are different from person to person depending on the muscle action observed when wrinkling the forehead. Botox is then injected into the muscles. The procedure takes about 1–2 minutes, after which light pressure is applied to the area to prevent bruising. The injection is repeated once or twice a year to maintain its effects.
