When looking for a cosmetic procedure, forehead frown botox is a great and popular choice. These injections can help to soften existing lines and wrinkles. More importantly, they also have a dual preventative and corrective action, i.e they can help reduce the chance of wrinkles becoming deeper. These injections are best used on wrinkles that becoming more noticeable. Generally, patients who get Botox will see an improvement within 1 week with results lasting four to six months depending on the botox dosage.
Injections are placed in the corrugators, which are located in between the eyebrows. These areas are most susceptible to wrinkling and squinting. The amount of Botox used in a single treatment depends on the strength of the corrugator muscle. For example, comparing males to females, the muscle tends to be larger and stronger in males and hence, males may need more Botox. The treatment is non-surgical, minimally invasive and has little to no downtime. It is recommended that patients avoid lying flat on the face for the first 4 to 6 hours after treatment.
For horizontal forehead wrinkles, the dosage for the injections similarly depends on the size, strength, and level of activity of the forehead muscle. The main forehead muscle that causes horizontal wrinkles is the frontalis muscle, which lifts the eyebrows and creates wrinkles on the forehead. The goal of botox is to reduce the amount of muscle movement by relaxing the muscle. The number of injection sites varies, based on the severity and shape of the wrinkles.
The most common injection site for the forehead is the glabellar area, which is where frown lines between the eyebrows appear. The average botox dosage can range between 6 to 12 units. However, it is important to note that the dosage depends on the person's age, gender, and muscle distribution and strength. A man's muscles are more active than a woman's, so he would most likely need a higher dosage of Botox.
When it comes to forehead wrinkles and frown lines, Botox is still undoubtedly one of the most safe and effective treatment options. The procedure helps reduce the signs of aging by improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The treatment process of injecting botox in these areas is quick with minimal discomfort. Typically, treatment duration per area should range between 5 to 10 minutes.
Results of Forehead and Frown Botox are long-lasting and will last about three to four months when a medium dose is injected. Higher dosages may last up to 6 months. The second benefit of botox treatment is the prevention of future wrinkles. Typically, forehead wrinkles are the result of overactive muscles, which elevates the skin, causing skin creases which overtime lead to the formation of wrinkles. Botox treatments will help you reduce these signs of aging by restoring a smooth, youthful forehead.
Rest assured that forehead botox treatment is both safe and effective for many people. Botox has been extensively studied by researchers and its safety profile is well documented. Botox results start to gradually appear from the second or third day with the full effect of botox treatment being noticeable after seven to ten days. Repeated, regular injections every 4 to 6 months will provide the best improvement in wrinkles and best anti-aging results.
In the hands of an experienced botox injector, Botox has minimal risks. However, when injected in an incorrect manner, Botox may rarely cause asymmetrical eyebrows, arched eyebrows, droopy eyebrows / eyelids or a frozen appearance whereby there is very little facial expressions. It is of paramount importance to discuss with your doctor about your botox preference prior to starting treatment!
