The group of facial muscles between the eyes that contribute to the frown lines (also commonly referred to as the “11’s”) is the most common area treated with Botox injections. By relaxing these strong, hyperactive muscles with Botox injections, we are able to achieve a natural, smoothing of this area. This results in a more refreshed appearance as the medial (inner) eyebrows lift rather than pulling downward and in.
For wrinkles/folds that do not completely resolve with Botox injections, a small amount of filler (ex: Juvederm, Restylane) enhances the results by adding volume to fill the fold and smooth the skin. Botox relaxes the underlying problem whereas fillers like Restylane and Juvederm restore volume. It is the perfect combination of the correct technique and appropriate product and volume that provides pleasing outcomes.
