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

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

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
