All the best,
Lines after botox
When we rest the muscle with BOTOX, this allows the skin, an opportunity to begin to repair itself. By the end of the BOTOX treatment, the skin is stronger. When the wrinkle is deep , it may take a couple of BOTOX treatments before the line disappears completely. Be patient, if you want to speed up the rebuilding process, consider a good exfoliation skin program including RetinA.

Botox and "eleven" lines
Thank you for posting your question. From the pictures you provided, it appears that you have had some improvement. Botox does not erase lines. However, treatment can significantly reduce the severity. Over time, with repeated treatment at the recommended interval of 3-4 months, most patients can see a nice relaxation of the lines. I suggest continuing treatment with Botox and adding in treatment with laser resurfacing or filler to get the best effect. Hope this helps!

Botox and Deep Glabella Lines
If you have deep glabella lines, it will take several treatments over the course of time to have your skin "smoothed out". I always explain that it is like paper that has been folded and you need to "iron out" the crease. You might also benefit from filler in that area. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with expertise with facial injections. Best, Dr. Green

Thank you for your question and pictures. Botox is not made to get rid of the lines completely, especially your first time. Botox works by relaxing the muslces so your not constantly contracting those muslces which in turn is making the lines more prominent. If you are not able to contract your muscles with expression then the botox is working. Once you are able to start contracting those muscles again then you know its time to go in for another treatment. Botox will last anywhere from 3-6 months. Every patient is different. Stay consistent with your botox treatments and you will see and improvement with repetative use over time. Best regards
