Thank you for your question dochia. Botox I a purifies protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression such as the vertical lines between the brows seen when one frowns. The pivotal studies demonstrated that when a dose of 20 units is used in this area, most people enjoy their results for 3-4 months and peak effect is seen at 14 days. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Botox is very commonly used to treat the lines between the eyes in the glabella that appear during frowning or squinting. I think this would be a worthwhile procedure for you to consider. See a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist to discuss your options.
Botox works great for dynamic lines between your eyebrows (globular lines). It is a quick procedure and my patients love the results. Always seek treatment from a qualified professional. Good luck!
Hi, I have used Botox (Xeomin or Dysport) for 30 years. The lines in your Glabellar region, can easily be treated. Over the years, I have found that approach to be quick, painless, highly effective when properly performed.
Hope this helps.
I like to start off with Botox for facial lines of animation in this area. If the botox does not improve it to your satisfaction. then perhaps filler may enhance the result.
It is best to use Botox to relax the underlying cause of the crease, which is the muscle, and dermal fillers will help to fill in the line at rest. In this region there is a limited arterial blood supply to the area, and care needs to be taken when filling the area. Injection of filler into the arteries here can cause death (necrosis) of the skin. A scary possibility also is filler injections going into the arteries here and moving along these arteries into the arteries that supply the eye, causing blindness. This is a rare but real complication of fillers in this area. To optimise safety in this area, your doctor should use only small amounts of filler in this area, injected carefully with blunt-tipped cannulas and not needles. Blunt tipped cannulas tend to be less likely to enter into arteries, but instead push them aside.
Vertical lines between the eyebrows are caused by the underlying corrugator muscle contraction. If, when you relax that muscle, that line disappears, then all you need is Botox to stop the muscle from contracting. If, however, the line is still there when the muscle is relaxed, you need a filler in addition to the Botox. Make sure you see a physician with significant experience in treating this area.
Thank you for your question and for sharing your photograph. Sorry to hear that you are having some concerns about your facial appearance. Based on your photograph, it appears that a combination of Botox and a filler such as Juvederm would be required in order to achieve your desired result. Please be sure to see an experienced injector for an in-person consultation in order to fully address your concerns, discuss your goals and expectations, and determine the best course of action. Best wishes!
A combination of both Botox and fillers might be needed. At your physical exam your Doctor will be able to determine what would work best.
It depends on whether the line is from muscle movement or a deep radix. If muscle then Botox. If a deep radix, then fillers as long as it works with the shape of your bridge. If neither, consider skin tightening of the forehead.
