Botox and dermal fillers to smooth forehead wrinkles and depressions in a younger woman
Botox® and facial fillers are popular aesthetic treatments in plastic surgery offices. These nonsurgical treatments can create smoother skin with minimal downtime. Facial fillers, gels which add volume, work immediately and last for several months to years depending on multiple factors. Botox, a wrinkle relaxer, works after several days and lasts about three months.
This Washington DC facial plastic surgery patient had consulted Dr. Chaboki to review options to improve her forehead. She previously had steroid injections in the forehead by her dermatologist, which resulted in a depressed area and thinned skin.
After speaking with Dr. Chaboki to review potential options, she chose a facial filler to add volume to the depression and Botox to relax the forehead muscle wrinkles. The combination treatment resulted in a smoother forehead with an improved and natural appearance. Her forehead filler lasts over a year, while her Botox last several months. Surgery with a forehead lift was not an appropriate option for this patient, as the forehead unevenness was due to thinning of the skin and muscle activity primarily.
