The best approach for any upper face wrinkle of motion, like forehead wrinkles, is a Neuromodulator, or muscle relaxants such as Botox® or Dysport®. These muscle relaxants help soften the facial expressions that create the wrinkles. Depending on your age, Botox® can either prevent wrinkles from forming, or help them from getting worse. The cost varies from patient to patient, but you can typically expect to spend less than $100.00 in this area. Results last approximately three to four months.
These areas of indentation usually start to make their appearance around the 4th or 5th decade. As you run your fingers down the forehead toward the cheek, you might feel an indentation. This area is referred to as the “temporal hollow”. It can give the aging appearance of a skeletal frame. This can be easily corrected by placing dermal fillers or Plasma Rich Protein (PRP) in the areas of hollowness. This area of the face is generally immobile; therefore the product placed there tends to last longer, sometimes up to several years.
As we age, we lose bone prominence around the eyes. Without that support holding up the tissue, the brows tend to descend downward, leaving a sad, tired look around the brows. We use a multiple modality approach with this problem, combining a neuromodulator like Botox® to relax the brow depressors and dermal fillers to support the tissue by recreating the bone that has been lost. The cost will vary from patient to patient, but this combination approach can last up to 12 months.
Coupled with skin laxity and a loss of bone prominence around the eyes, we often see the skin ‘hang around’ the eyes leaving a sad, tired, drawn down look. We use a multiple modality approach with this problem, combining a muscle relaxer like Botox® to elevate the brows and dermal fillers to recreate the bone that has been lost. Prices vary from patient to patient. This combination approach can last up to 12 months.
These oblique lines that cross the nose develop over time as a result of squinting or scrunching up the nose when animating. There is an easy fix, however with just a few units of Botox®. The cost varies from patient to patient but an approximate cost is $50.00. The results of the Botox® generally lasts 3-4 months.
