Botox® is still the “gold standard” in the treatment and prevention of facial wrinkles, we would typically use it to reduce the appearance of frown, forehead and crow’s feet wrinkles, and it can also be used to lift areas of the face such as eyebrows and can soften and lift the jowls.
In younger patients we can use smaller dosages to achieve natural results and wrinkle prevention. Most patients can expect a 3 to 4 month result of treatment.
For any facial area treated with Botox®, a number of variables, including specific aesthetic goals which are determined by the patient’s personal desires, influence the placement and number of injections. The distinction between wrinkle effacement and facial shaping is critical, as both or either may be achieved.
The end result, should suite and enhance the patient, from those that work in media, or on stage and therefore require certain facial movements, to those who wish very little facial movement, or anywhere in between.
