On an average day, your face is making hundreds – if not thousands – of expressions. From squinting and furrowing your brow to raising your eyebrows with surprise, your forehead is in constant movement. With every movement, it’s more likely that fine lines and deep creases are making their mark across your forehead.
Forehead lines are often among the first wrinkles to be noticed, as they can be quite prominent. Fortunately, there’s a way to erase the appearance of forehead lines without overloading your face with Botox injections.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Doherty specializes in Botox and anti-aging injections at his two practices in downtown Boston and Brookline, MA. As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Doherty has the experience and know-how to inject just enough Botox to eliminate the appearance of forehead lines without creating the dreaded “frozen” look. In fact, this procedure is known as “Baby Botox,” and it requires the hand of a skilled plastic surgeon to perform.
Why is that, you might ask? Simple: Plastic surgeons are incredibly knowledgeable about the muscles that lie underneath your forehead skin. That means a plastic surgeon is in a much better position to know how much Botox to inject, and where. Someone who doesn’t have this same kind of knowledge, will go overboard may go overboard with Botox injections.
Dr. Doherty often injects smaller amounts of Botox into the glabella complex – a small group of muscles between the eyebrows. Once this area is treated, a large majority of the forehead relaxes, creating a much more natural and youthful appearance. Dr. Doherty recommends that his patients follow up with him two to three weeks after the initial treatment to determine if additional injections are needed.
