Botox Administration Technique - Beverly Hills, CA

I became tired of folks asking me if i was mad. ( the angry scowl from the two vertical frown lines between my brows). Since my birthday was coming up i figured why not freshen up my face instead of traveling somewhere. This was primarily the reason for the Botox. I also had two relatively noticeable horizontal lines across my forehead. Both sets of course are the results of frowning for many years.The vertical lines between my brows were my major concern. Today when i compare the vertical lines the horizontal lines the two horizontal lines have almost disappeared. I would describe the vertical lines as softened. My ability to raise my brows are noticeably different. the brow on the left raises at least 50-60% more than my right brow. is this due to nerve and muscle strength, genetics or the admin technique? The doctor sat on my right and turned my left side toward him for injection. Although the bevel of the needle was probably admin. in the same area in both brows the angle is different due to the fact that Botox was not administered directly from the left side ( my strong opinion). i am hoping over the next couple of weeks my vertical lines will soften more.
i am satisfied overall with the result except for the vertical frown lines. I still look mad!

Did you go back for a 2 week check? If not, I would call and ask for one. It seems that a lot of times the Botox will need just a little more added in one area of another either due to difference in muscular strength on one side vs the other side, or a small variation in the way it was injected, or whatever the reason.

If you take a look at my review you will see pictures of me with one eyebrow going much further up than the other, like you described (warning, I look a bit crazy in the pictures due to it, haha!). I've had to go back a couple of times for touch-ups before, but would much prefer that then to have them inject too much and have bad results.


Dr A.

The doctor has a very busy practice. His chair side manner was excellent. He put me at ease immediately and was easy to consult with. The results he expected are evident.
