Are the results of botox or dysport injections to eliminate the horizontal lines on my forehead permanent?

Are the results of botox or dysport injections to eliminate the horizontal lines on my forehead permanent?

No: Botox and Dysport work by relaxing the muscles that cause the skin to scrunch up. When the effects wear off in 3-4 months, the skin will start to move again and the wrinkles will come back. Regular maintenance is required to make the lines stay away. ...Read more

Board certified dermatologist wants to use dysport for my deep forehead wrinkles. I said she is wrong. It could result in a lowering brow. Now what?

Board certified dermatologist wants to use dysport for my deep forehead wrinkles. I said she is wrong. It could result in a lowering brow. Now what?

It depends: The use of any approved neurotoxin to reduce forehead lines has to be used carefully. Many doctors will adjust the dosage and location to produce a beneficial result. You should express your concerns to your doctor about brow position and listen carefully to the plan. All the treatments are temporary and can be done in a step wise fashion to soften the lines without complete elimination. ...Read more

I received 50 units of Botox in my glabella/forehead 36 hrs ago. Now my brows have lost their arch & only the top 1/2 of my forehead rises/ is furrowed. Is more Botox a fix? How long must I wait?

Give 7-10 days: This depends on your desired appearance. It typically takes 7-10 days to see the initial effects of Botox and to take full action. Botox cannot be reversed. So the flattening of the arch may be due to Botox working on the outer portions of the brw/forehead with less lifting. It may be possible to add additional Botox to the central upper forehead to drop the inner portions and create a subtle arch ...Read more

-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 more

How much space/cushioning is in between the brain and skull (in units)? How does the cushioning protect the brain from everyday head movements?

How much space/cushioning is in between the brain and skull (in units)? How does the cushioning protect the brain from everyday head movements?

0.5-1 cm: The brain is surrounded by cerebrospinal fluid. It does not touch the inside of the skull. So when the head is "jerked" the brain floats in the CSF and the blow is cushioned. It goes back to the physics. A fluid cannot sustain a pressure gradient. ...Read more
