Good morning. We're going to talk about a very specialized use of Botox. We have a patient here who's had Botox before and what I want to demonstrate is that when she raises her eyebrows she gets a couple of lines above the brow. Now a lot of times, women actually like the arched brow and to have the arch you have to leave the muscle above the eyebrow intact and functioning-the frontalis muscle here. So again, raise your eyebrow for me. You can see when the muscle is working obviously, you see a few little lines here. Now with her, just relax the eyebrows, the brow position's nice. She doesn't need that much of an arch, so what I'm going to do is just put half a drop of Botox here and half a drop here, just to basically ease that up a little bit so these lines won't show. Again, this demonstrates the flexibility of Botox and so many things you can do with it. So go ahead and put your head back for me. I'm going to have the cameras zoom in a little bit so we can show the technique. Close your eyes. The injection, you can see, it's basically lateral to the pupil. It's just one little drop right here, and that's a subcutaneous drop. Right there. On this side, same thing, a subcutaneous drop. She'll have a little bit more of an aggressive arch on that side. Just a little bit more on that side. The fact is, there's no bruising, the redness will go away in about 10-15 minutes. And what it does, it prevents the eyebrow from really coming up to aggressively and forming the lines up here. That's it.
Brow Muscles Eased With Light Botox Injections
Dr. Shervin Naderi explains the versatility of Botox as he administers only half of a drop above each of the patient's brows in order to prevent an aggressive, wrinkle forming arch.
