Why in the fingers?: Why are you getting Botox in the fingers? Are you taking about hand injections for excessive sweaty palms?If thats the case, then yes there is some discomfort and everybody is different, but the needles are very small and typically are more bothersome than painful.

Are the results of botox or dysport injections to eliminate the horizontal lines on my forehead permanent?
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
Radiesse (dermal fillers) and lips: Radiesse should not be injected into the lips because of the hardness that it can create. Radiesse is not reversible also. HA based dermal fillers are the best choice for lip augmentation. If you are looking for a more permanent way to augment your lips, then consider fat transfer. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 8 more doctor answers
-profile photo- The red dots are the areas I had dysport injected for bunny lines/line above nose, are these the proper injection areas?(50 units)
Yes: The area you highlighted is the correct area that would cover the bunny. However 50u is a bit steep if it was just in those 2 spots. If the disport was not only given in those 2 areas and the areas between the brows and on the sides of the middle portion then yes 50 is right. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes and no? Maybe mo: Any muscle which loses its innervation (which occurs with botox) may suddenly begin to twitch or fasciculate. Generally this subsides over a few days. However any imbalance in muscle action can also cause this and Botox is indicated for the medical treatment of blepharospasm (eye twitching). Therefore more botolinummay be the answer. Juvederm is not likely to cause eye twitching. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Would belotero reduce the heavy lines between by eyebrows? What are the differences in the fillers belotero, Restylane and juvederm? Would a belotero injection between my eyebrows (for those wrinkles that look like the number eleven) be the best filler op
Dysport/Botox first: In this situation, you need to get Dysport or Botox to relax the muscle first. After a few weeks, if the line is still present, you can use a filler to help further improve results. Belotero, although not fda approved for this region, can be used to accomplish this task. Be aware that a very rare complication of skin necrosis is possible with any filler in this region. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Perhaps: Cleft chin is caused by the adherence of the skin in the middle of the chin to the deeper tissues. Correction requires releasing these strong attachments and placing a graft of fat or muscle to add volume. Filling agents injected under the cleft might be of some value, however, the results will be limited if the strong deep attachments are not released. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
