The risk is real: Botox can reduce facial expressions, but if done correctly the chances are small. Good injectors make sure that there is some movement of the forehead, so that you don't have a frozen look. The risk of injecting Botox around the mouth is that it can cause drooling. Again, if you go with a very experienced injector the risks are lower. ...Read more

Wrinkles: Although the technical name for a facelift is rhytidectomy, it does not remove wrinkles, per se. However, by replacing sagging tissues and removing excess skin, some wrinkles are less apparent. After facelift surgery, there is less of an accordion effect of the excess skin falling on itself. ...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

Could a person's frown lines reveal how frequently he/she may get angry?

Could a person's frown lines reveal how frequently he/she may get angry?

Maybe...: The frown lines develop when you repeatedly furrow your brow. This could be in anger, but also when you squint in the sun or when you're concentrating or confused. Everyone is different in how long it takes to develop the lines and how much frowning is needed to cause it, so there really isn't a good correlation between "how angry" someone is and how deep the lines are. ...Read more

Can a botox treatment for frown lines make your forehead/face feel any different then if a person didn't have?

Can a botox treatment for frown lines make your forehead/face feel any different then if a person didn't have?

Yes: The goal is to relax the muscles not to freeze the face. So initially it will feel different but not in a bad way but more like less stress or relaxed like when you are at peace. Remember , it is not immediate but takes a few days and you may notice a headache in the first day but that is not true all the time. But don't be surprised by it. ...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

Depends on age: Recovery is practically nonexistent. If you mean results, you should plan on several months. All is dependent upon your age and also how much volume loss you are experiencing.

Botox into static forehead frown lines showed droopy eyelids. Why didn't the dermatologist place a filler afterwards at a later time? Will it work?

Forehead filler: I'm a little confused by the question. Most injectors stay clear of the forehead area with filler because there is risk of blindness associated with this injection. With informed consent I would be more comfortable doing this injection (as do other injectors). I would need to evaluate you and I would also recommend dw your injector! good luck. ...Read more

Wow!: Wow, that would horrify me too. So many bacteria/viruses on the phone for one, and all the illnesses that go with it. Not to mention the potential for injurying their teeth and gums. And there is the concern about electromagnetic radiation from cell phones--for an infant especially. And how about the effects of saliva on the phone?
