Areas of the face where Botox can be used.
Botox can be used on several areas of the face and neck with great results. Several of these applications are "off label usage" of the product, but can be used very effectively by the right qualified practitioner. Botox can be used to treat forehead lines, the glabellar frown lines "11s", and the crows feet around the eyes. These are the common use areas for most neurotoxins. The other areas that may benefit from these treatments are the corners of the mouth and jowl region, the heavy bands in the center of the neck as well as the upper lip wrinkles. It is important that your doctor explain the risks and benefits of using neurotoxin in these specific areas and that they are experienced with the use of the product for those particular complaints.

Thank you for your question.
Botox works by weakening the muscles that cause wrinkles. It can be used in many areas on the face. Based on your goals, you may want to consider a dermal filler. Injected dermal filler focus on restoring volume and rejuvenating the look of your features and is what is typically injected into nasolabial fold.
I recommend you book a consultation with a qualified injector,to discuss your options.

Botox treatment areas on the face
It can also be used in the neck for neck bands, the lower face to help turn up the corners of the mouth, the lower cheek to help bulging muscles in this area, the lips for dynamic lip lines but unfortunately it isn't very useful for the Nasolabial fold.
This folder often results from loss of volume in the overlying cheek as well as in the fold.
Getting filler to help inflate the cheek 1st can often give a big improvement in the nasolabial fold as well.
Seek out a specialist in your area with experience with fillers.
I hope this was helpful.
