My eyes are very hooded. How effective is a botox brow lift (a.K.A. Chemical browlift)?

My eyes are very hooded. How effective is a botox brow lift (a.K.A. Chemical browlift)?

Not effective: A botox brow lift is used to target the lateral aspect of the brow. This will have minimal effect on excess hooding which could be a combination of excess eyelid skin (dermatochalasis) and a low brow. If this is the case, then frequently people compensate unknowingly by keeping the brow elevated. In this scenario a brow lift is needed initially plus or minus a blepharoplasty afterwards. ...Read more

How do botox and Restylane (dermal fillers) injections differ?

How do botox and Restylane (dermal fillers) injections differ?

Different drugs: Botox is what we call a neurotoxin. It's a purified protein that blocks the transmission of a signal from the nerve ending to the muscle. By doing so, it allows the muscle to relax and in turn, it gives the skin a chance to relax and the wrinkles disappear. Restylane (dermal fillers) is a hyaluronic acid that is injected under the skin to fill depressions. It's usually used to reduce laugh lines or plump the lips. ...Read more

What's better for frown lines? Dysport or botox?

What's better for frown lines? Dysport or botox?

Similar Results: In my experience, both give very similar results. I've had some patients say that Dysport is a bit more natural (i.e. less "frozen") than Botox. Dysport also comes on faster (3-5 days instead of 7-10 with Botox.) I have quite a few patients who request Dysport over Botox and I prefer it when I treat my own lines. FYI you can get a really great deal on Dysport right now with Aspire. (google it) ...Read more

What are the best available technologies for non-invasive plastic surgery on the face? Reducing jowls, turkey neck, sagging eyelids?

What are the best available technologies for non-invasive plastic surgery on the face? Reducing jowls, turkey neck, sagging eyelids?

Best non-surgical is: Fractional laser resurfacing. I recommend totalfx ultrapulse fractional co2 resurfacing. This modality has the benefit of addressing deep winkles, long-term collagen stimulation/ remodeling as well as improving skin tone, texture, tightening the skin and evening out pigmentation from sun damage. Can treat face, neck, eyelids, chest, hands. Botox & fillers can be used to augment results if needed. ...Read more

Will dermal fillers get rid of forehead wrinkles and fine lines?

Will dermal fillers get rid of forehead wrinkles and fine lines?

Botox is better: If you are looking to minimize forehead wrinkles, Botox is a better option. The cause of those lines is movement of your muscles. Botox blocks the receptors in your brain from being able to communicate with the muscle it is injected into. That in turn reduces muscle contraction, which gets rid of the lines. Dermal fillers are used more for areas that have lines due to lose of volume. ...Read more

Are laser surgery and chemical peels good for treating eye wrinkles ?

Are laser surgery and chemical peels good for treating eye wrinkles  ?

Yes: Depending on how bad the wrinkles and the cause, laser or peels can really help wrinkles. Some wrinkles may be better treated with Botox if they are the result of over-active muscles and other wrinkles by surgery if they are from too much skin. Your plastic surgeon can help you decide which is best. ...Read more

Is ulthera or exilis better for under eyes wrinkles?

Is ulthera or exilis better for under eyes wrinkles?

Wrinkles under eyes: Can be treated by blepharoplasty surgery or facial chemical peels, but both of these require healing and down-time. Ultherapy uses ultrasonic energy to stimulate (mild) collagen building and some improvement in skin tone. Exilis uses rf (radiofrequency energy) to stimulate collagen growth. Both work reasonably well for non-invasive, no down-time, pain-free procedures, but do not replace surgery! ...Read more

Is there cosmetic surgery for wrinkled neck like a facelift?

Definitely!: Facelifts ( not mini-facelifts) usually include lifting the neck so as to tighten and smooth neck muscle and skin. Prominent "cords" (platysma muscle edges) in the front of the neck can be addressed during a facelift, as well. More difficult to treat are transverse neck creases. ...Read more

Botox type injections into static frown lines caused major droopy eye lids. I suppose that ultherapy or peleve would do the same for my whole face?

Botox type injections into static frown lines caused major droopy eye lids. I suppose that ultherapy or peleve would do the same for my whole face?

Options to treat: Lid ptosis from Botox A occurs when the botox crosses the tarsal plate in the upper lid and inhibits the lid lifting muscles or because you are using your forehead muscles to lift the lids and Botox reduces the lift. Ulthera and Peleve can be used to lift lids. Topical treatments are available. I would revisit whoever did the Botox for treatment of the lid ptosis. Or get a second opinion. ...Read more

Why would my eyelid droop after xeomin (incobotulinumtoxin a)?

Why would my eyelid droop after xeomin (incobotulinumtoxin a)?

Too much product: Drooping eyelids can occur with botox, Dysport or xeomin (incobotulinumtoxin a). Because these products work by relaxing the muscles. Too much product or injecting too close to the brow can cause the eyelids to droop. Make sure you inform your doctor that this happened so that he/she can back off a little for your next treatment. This is especially common when treating the forehead and when treated by inexperienced drs. ...Read more
