6 Unconventional Botox Areas

6 areas you might not know you can treat with Botox


We all know Neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport can be injected to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Some of the most commons areas we see treated with Botox are the Glabellar (frown) lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. But Botox can treat more than just these areas.

Here are 5 unconventional areas that we can treat with Botox that have various aesthetic and wellness benefits.

  • Nose Botox:
    Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles it targets. In the case of nose Botox, this can mean relaxing muscles that pull the nose downward or compress it, allowing other muscles to exert more influence. For example, injecting Botox at the base of the nose can lift the tip slightly. Injecting it into the bunny lines can soften the appearance of the lines.
  • Chin Botox:
    Injecting a neurotoxin into the chin can help reduce the appearance of chin dimpling, also referred to as “orange peel chin.”

  • DAO Botox:
    The DAO muscle is responsible for pulling down the corners of the mouth. When this muscle is overactive or hyperactive, it can contribute to a downturned appearance of the mouth, often referred to as a “sad” or “frowning” mouth. DAO Botox is used to weaken this muscle temporarily, which can help lift the corners of the mouth and correct a downturned smile.
  • Neck Botox:
    Neck Botox, also known as “Nefertiti lift,” is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of Botox injections to improve the appearance of the neck area. Botox injected into the platysmal bands can help relax the platysma muscle in the neck, reducing the appearance of vertical bands or cords that can form with aging. When injected more superficially into the horizontal lines, it can soften the appearance of these “tech neck” lines.
  • Trapezius Botox:
    “Traptox” has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. It involves injecting Botox into the trapezius muscle, which is a large muscle located on the back and neck. Trapezius Botox injections are used for both therapeutic and cosmetic purposes. The trapezius muscle can become tense, tight, or overactive due to various reasons such as muscle spasms, tension headaches and postural issues. It also offers aesthetic benefits such as elongating the neck.
  • Masseter Botox:
    Masseter Botox injections target the masseter muscles of the jaw to slim and redefine the jawline, addressing issues like TMJ/jaw clenching and aesthetic concerns related to facial slimming. By temporarily relaxing these muscles, Botox reduces their size and prominence. This relaxes the jaw and results in a slender and balanced facial profile.
