Can my Botox be corrected or will I have to wait till it wears off for my uneven brows?
Uneven Brows
Jul 20, 2020
The good news is that this is a very easy fix. I would call your office for a follow up visit within two weeks following the injection. Your frontalis muscle above your brow is still lifting causing the "spooked brow" or one brow is stronger than the other so it lifts more making them uneven. Just a little touch up is all that is needed and then the injector will inject your next Botox injection pattern a little differently to compensate for uneven brows. I do tell people that each person's...
Can I get Botox at 4pm after having lip tattoo at 11am? (Same day)
Botox and Lip tattoo
Jul 20, 2020
Thank you for asking this question. With the rise of facial tattooing being popular this is a pertinent question to ask. Just as long as botox is not injected in the lips for a lip flip or around the mouth, you can have facial botox later in the day after the tattoo. Lip tattoo can cause swelling around the mouth so avoiding this area till swelling goes down is my suggestion. Hope this helps.
I'd love to get opinions about Sculptra vs. Radiesse in my cheeks to lift my jowls?
Sculptra Vs. Radiesse
Jul 20, 2020
This is a really good question that I get from several of my patients who are thinner and don't want the overfilled look but need volume. The answer to your question is BOTH. The reason I say both is because they work differently but yet work well together. You can start slow with Sculptra to stimulate your natural collegen then a few weeks later inject Radiesse for immediate but softer lift in smaller amounts. As the Sculptra starts to work several weeks to months later, Radiesse is...
Crow's Feet Not Completely Gone Post-Botox
Crow's feet Botox
Apr 30, 2020
Without a photo it is hard to give you a definitive answer, but usually it's one of three things. One, not enough Botox was used in the area. Two, there is muscle recruitment, meaning there is still some activity in parts of the muscle and they are working extra, creating the lines. Three, you may have a totally immobile muscle but volume loss in the area, which could use a little filler to soften the lines. I usually start with Botox around the eyes and then evaluate the need for more...
What can I do to minimise my prominent nasolabial folds and sunken cheeks long term?
Sunken cheeks
Apr 30, 2020
I agree that Bellafill would be a good option, or Sculptra. Both are much longer lasting than traditional HLA fillers. Fat grafting could be another good option. I would probably consult with a plastic surgeon just to get all of your options on the table.
Good luck with your treatment!
