Botox can do more than just reduce the appearance of well known forehead lines or crows feet on your face. Botox is typically administered to areas on the face, but it can also be applied to other areas of the body for a variety of other cosmetic and non-cosmetic conditions like excessive sweating.

At Bloom Health and Wellness Studio, our team of qualified medical professionals works with great care to ensure that you get the best results from your Botox treatment. Botox is intended to enhance your look, not change it – you can still smile, frown and be expressive. Get in touch today to get started and let us help you choose the best areas to treat with Botox, so wrinkles don’t make you look older than you feel.

Main Botox Areas

Common Botox injection sites include the upper face and lower areas of the face, but it can also be applied to other areas of the body.

Upper Face

Forehead Lines

Horizontal forehead lines (sometimes called surprise lines) are a common concern due to their prominent visibility and association with aging. When treating these lines, the forehead muscle movement is carefully evaluated to tailor the Botox dosage to prevent over-relaxation, which could result in a droopy brow or loss of facial expressiveness.

The technique involves multiple injections across the forehead, avoiding areas near the brow to maintain natural eyebrow movement. The aim is to smooth forehead without lines and wrinkles while preserving your ability to convey natural facial expressions.

Frown Lines (11s or Glabellar Lines)

The glabellar region, often called the 11s, is the area between your eyes which is often prone to deep vertical lines from frowning or squinting. Frown lines require precise Botox injections to relax the corrugator and procerus muscles without affecting nearby muscle groups. Treatment in this area not only softens existing frown lines but can also prevent the deepening of furrows over time.

Bunny Lines

Bunny lines add character to facial expressions but can become more pronounced and permanent with age. Targeting the nasalis muscle with a few carefully placed injections can soften these lines without significantly impacting the natural movement of your nose.

Under the Eyes

Treating the delicate area under the eyes requires a conservative approach with Botox, often employing micro-injections to avoid over-treatment. The goal is to gently relax the muscles that contribute to smooth fine creases underneath the eyes, improving the appearance of fine lines without altering the natural contours or the functionality of the eye.

Eyebrow Lift

A Botox brow lift involves strategic injections at the ends of the eyebrows to relax the muscles that pull the brows down, allowing the forehead muscles to lift the brows slightly. This procedure can open up the eyes, reducing the appearance of hooded eyelids and giving you a more alert and youthful appearance. As with all Botox treatments, the application is tailored to your facial structure and desired outcome, ensuring a lift that appears natural and enhances your overall facial aesthetics.

Crow’s Feet

Treating crow’s feet involves injecting Botox into the orbicularis oculi muscle at the outer corners of the eyes. This softens the appearance of the lines that form from smiling and squinting without diminishing your smile’s natural warmth and genuineness. Treatment is adjusted to the depth of the wrinkles and your facial anatomy, aiming to reduce the wrinkles while preserving the sparkle and movement of your eyes.

Lower Face

Lipstick Lines (Bar Code Lines or Smoker’s Lines)

Lipstick lines, bar code lines, or smoker’s lines, are the vertical wrinkles that appear around the lips, often exacerbated by smoking, puckering, or the natural aging process. Botox can be used to soften these lines by carefully injecting small amounts into the orbicularis oris muscle, which encircles the mouth. This treatment relaxes the muscle just enough to smooth the skin without significantly affecting your ability to pucker or move your lips, ensuring that facial expressions and functions, such as speaking and eating, remain unaffected. Note: Injecting these areas can affect the way you pronounce O’s, P’s and B’s and may reduce your ability to drink from straw.


Botox treatment can be applied to the masseter muscle, the main muscle that you use for chewing, located at the angle of the jaw. This application is particularly effective if you have a strong jawline or masseter hypertrophy, which can give your face a more squared appearance. Botox injections here can slim your jawline, creating a more V-shaped face. Additionally, this treatment offers therapeutic benefits for bruxism (teeth grinding), as it relaxes the muscles and reduces the grinding that can lead to jaw pain and dental issues.

Neck Bands

The appearance of prominent vertical bands on the neck, known as platysmal bands, can be addressed with Botox injections. These bands become more visible with age as the skin loses elasticity and the platysma muscle’s edges become more defined. Botox helps to relax these muscles, reducing the appearance of the bands and resulting in a smoother, more youthful-looking neck. This procedure, often referred to as the “Nefertiti Lift,” requires precise injection to achieve natural-looking results and maintain neck movement. The “Nefertitt Lift” includes injections into the platysmal bands down the neck and into the platysmal band along the jawline, creating a slimming appearance of the jawline as well. 


Botox treatment can improve the appearance of a “pebble chin” or “orange peel” texture, characterized by dimpling and puckering of the chin. This condition is caused by hyperactive mentalis muscle activity. By injecting Botox into this muscle, the surface of your chin becomes smoother, enhancing the overall appearance of your lower face. The key is to administer the right amount of Botox to achieve smoothness without affecting the lower lip’s movement for speech and expression.

Corners of the Mouth (Marionette Lines)

Downturned corners of the mouth (sometimes called marionette lines) can create a sad or angry appearance. Botox injections into the depressor anguli oris muscle, which pulls the corners of your mouth downward, can help lift the corners of your mouth slightly. This subtle adjustment can make a significant difference in conveying a more positive, rested facial expression.

Gummy Smile

A gummy smile is where excessive gum tissue is visible above the top teeth during smiling. This can be minimized with Botox injections. The treatment involves injecting Botox into the muscles responsible for elevating your lip (such as the levator labii superioris alaeque nasi muscle) to reduce the upward movement of your lip, thereby exposing less gum. This requires careful assessment and injection site technique to ensure your smile appears natural and not restricted.

A Botox Facelift

A Botox facelift, often referred to as a “non-surgical” or “liquid” facelift, is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes Botox injections, often in combination with dermal fillers, to address signs of aging and rejuvenate the facial appearance without the invasiveness of traditional surgical facelifts.

The primary focus is on areas where expression lines and facial wrinkles are most prominent. This includes the forehead, where horizontal wrinkles can be smoothed out, and the area between the eyebrows, commonly treated for frown lines. The procedure is highly customizable, and a skilled practitioner will tailor the treatment to suit each individual’s needs, ensuring natural-looking results that enhance the person’s face without overdoing it.

Non-Cosmetic Treatment

Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)

Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)

Botox is highly effective in treating hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by excessive sweating, by targeting the sweat glands. It is most commonly applied to the underarms, but can also be used for the palms, soles of the feet, and forehead. Botox works by blocking the nerve signals responsible for sweating, leading to a significant reduction in sweat production. 

Migraine Headaches

For chronic migraine sufferers, Botox offers a preventive treatment option. By injecting Botox into specific areas around the neck, head, and sometimes shoulders, it can reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks. The mechanism involves Botox’s ability to block neurotransmitters that carry pain signals from the brain, effectively preventing migraine headaches before they start.

Muscle Spasms

Botox has therapeutic applications in treating various types of muscle spasms, including eyelid spasms (blepharospasm), cervical dystonia (a painful condition that causes the neck muscles to contract involuntarily), and limb spasticity. By directly injecting into the affected muscles, Botox provides relief by relaxing the muscles and reducing involuntary muscle movements, offering significant improvements in comfort and functionality for the patient.

Applying Botox is a delicate procedure, aiming for subtle enhancements instead of a major facelift. This helps to maintain your unique facial dynamics while offering a comprehensive anti-aging solution when combined with other treatments like dermal fillers, laser treatments and facials.
