BOTOX® for Smile Lines

Relax Key Muscles in Your Face to Reduce Nasolabial Folds in Portland

Smile lines, also known as laugh lines or nasolabial folds, are symmetrical or asymmetrical creases that form in the skin, stretching from both sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Almost everyone has these creases on their face, but they can become deeper and more pronounced as you age. When we’re younger, these creases may only show when we smile or laugh, but they can become more etched in with tim. BOTOX® for smile lines at Portland’s Aesthetic Medicine is a non-surgical treatment that minimizes these wrinkles by relaxing the muscles responsible for contributing to their appearance.

What Is BOTOX® for Smile Lines?

BOTOX® for smile lines temporarily relaxes key muscles to treat laugh lines or smile lines on the lower face. By stopping the muscles from moving, injections help lines around the mouth to look smoother. This can also prevent the formation of new wrinkles. BOTOX® for smile lines specifically relaxes the muscles responsible for nasolabial folds. Fillers are the more traditional treatment option for these lines, providing results that are visible virtually right away, so keep in mind that it can take several days before the e[ects of BOTOX® for smile lines kick in.

Individuals who are seeking treatments for the lower face, such as BOTOX® for smile lines, also sometimes search for “masseter BOTOX® smile” or “chin BOTOX® smile” because they are curious about how their smile could be a[ected. When injected properly, BOTOX® for smile lines and similar treatments are unlikely to have any negative e[ect on the smile overall.

How Botox® Cosmetic Works – The Science Behind The Treatment

BOTOX® Cosmetic has a one-of-a-kind formulation and only BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in adults.

What Causes Facial Lines?

A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother. See real results with BOTOX® Cosmetic: the #1 selling product of its kind in the world. If you are looking for a Portland Botox specialist you can trust feel free to call or fill out the form above to schedule your Botox® consultation with the Aesthetic Medicine team.

When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make frown lines temporarily look better.


When you squint or smile, the muscles around your eyes contract, causing crow’s feet. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make crow’s feet temporarily look better.


When you raise your eyebrows, the muscles on your forehead contract, causing skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make forehead lines temporarily look better.

What Should I Expect?

Some patients receiving BOTOX Injections Portland report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines in adults.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
