Forehead - balance of lifting and relaxation
Botox works in two directions. It can block muscles or just relax them. When muscles are blocked, the forehead, for example, can look as forehead without wrinkles, or ”frozen forehead”.
For young people it is ok to enjoy unmovable forehead without any wrinkles. This girl is young; therefore, her forehead muscles are completely blocked.
For ladies after 40, there is always a question whether to block muscles completely or just to relax them. The choice depends on your personal preferences.
After 50 years, people use forehead to open eyes. Therefore, for them, forehead muscles should be in a balance of lifting and relaxation. Otherwise, they will look “frozen”. The result is opened eyes, lift eyebrows, and very natural look.
What Botulinum Toxin can do for the forehead?
There are several patterns of forehead movements. The injection card is developed according to these patterns, which means the injector must keep in mind the different forms of forehead muscle contractions. The number of injection sites is based on the goals we would like to reach. If the goal is complete muscle relaxation, four injection sites are performed. However, if the goal is more sophisticated and includes a balance of lifting and muscle relaxation, many injections will be performed. Usually, the number of injection sites does not exceed 8.
How do you get rid of the frown lines?
Strong muscles between eyebrows are responsible for the firm “eleventh” appearance. Everybody wants to get rid of these lines in the centre of the face. Sometimes it is impossible to remove them completely. Therefore, the earlier the strength of these muscles is decreased, the less of a chance you have to develop “eleventh” permanently.
Before injections, your exact eyebrow movement pattern will be discovered.
There are different eyebrow pattern movements Arrow, U-pattern,V-pattern, Omega pattern, and inverted Omega pattern. Understanding these movement patterns helps you to understand how many points you will need when being injected. Let’s start!
The U-PATTERN is the most common movement, of muscles between eyebrows. It resembles a U-letter. Please look at the mirror without any movement. Does your eyebrow shape resemble an arch? Now please frown and pay attention to the depression appearing between your eyebrows while frowning. Do you see a similarity with the letter U? If yes, you are struggling with the same issue as 32% of the population. Moreover, this pattern of movement is the most common among women. You will probably be injected in five sites, and a standard dosage of neurotoxin will be used on you.
Do you want to know your pattern of movements and how many sites you will be injected? Let’s read the chapter from my book.
Open eyes and eyebrow lifting with injections
Everybody wants to lift their eyebrows. The open eye look only makes people look more attractive. The lifting of the eyebrows consists of two parts: forehead relaxation and eyebrow lifting.
The majority of clients after 50 get more benefits from eyebrow lifting through forehead muscle relaxation, and much less from full muscle block. The block of forehead muscles runs the risk of the eyebrows falling. As the forehead muscle thins with age, an increasingly smaller number of units can be a reason for eyebrows falling. It is expected that the forehead will not freeze but will become more relaxed and lifted.
There are different technics for injections in the area around the eyes. We have a certain dosage, recommended by the manufacturers for injections in this area. Manufacturers advise injecting in three sites for each eye. It works very well for young people who don’t have a hernia and who don’t suffer from eye swelling.
However, for an aging group of clients, smiling can show wrinkles spreading from the eyes to the cheekbones. In such cases muscles strength has moved from the orbicular muscle to the group of muscles around. In such a case, Meso Botox is the only solution. This is an example how eye and eyebrow lifting works.
The Meso Botox technique means that many sites of injections will be delivered to the skin. The injections are so superficial that white bumps become visible immediately. The bumps disappear within 5-10 minutes. The effect shows faster. When smiling, some skin movements are less pronounced. The effect is very natural but is short lasting.
Archy eyebrows is the sign of aging too. The majority of people after certain age use forehead muscles to open up eyes. Their eyebrows look unnaturally lifted and roundly shaped. Botulinum toxin relaxes forehead as well as around eye muscles. Eyebrows look natural and forehead looks relaxed.
Neck lifting and jowls removal
To get rid of jowl and to tighten neck different technologies, as Scarlet and Reaction, show results. However, European school of injections has been using Botulinum toxin for these purposes since 2015, called Nefertiti lift. Neck has a long muscle which starts from clavicle and spreads reaching lower or even middle third of the face. Relaxation of this muscle helps to get rid of jowls as well as creates the effect of neck lifting.
Many women after 50 do not understand how aggressively they use chin speaking. Involvement of chin underlines aging. It is very easy to stop a chin muscle work aggressively, injecting about 6 units of botulinum toxin.
Some people even not suspect that their asymmetry is noticeable. Asymmetry happens because muscle on one side of the face work harder, compared to another side. Aging exaggerates asymmetry. On the picture you see that left eyebrow is higher, as well as left eye. Relaxation of the muscles brought more symmetry into the appearance. Subconsciously symmetrical faces are evaluated as more attractive. Therefore, correction of asymmetry is a part of MedVSpa professional obligations.
If you are afraid to start
20 Units of Botox. How much is it? Many people think that 20 Units as a number is a lot. But the reality is that 20 units work to relax muscles between eyebrows, or to relax both eyes crow’s feet, or to relax forehead and chin only. It is not much. If 20 units will be injected into the area between eyebrows and forehead it is barely lifts up eyebrows and relaxes forehead, because the result is a dosage related. Certified in Canada Botulinum toxins like Botox®, Xeomin and Disport were approved for the result of muscles relaxation in certain areas related to dosage.
Botulinum “toxin” sounds weird but is one of the safest medical grade products in the world. Compared to fillers, it is difficult to ”look unnatural” after Botulinum toxin injections. MedVSPA starts with the minimal effective dosage to make you look natural.
Botox injections are expensive everywhere around the globe and the effect lasts from 3 to 6 month. MedVSPA requires 2 weeks after injections complimentary follow up visit to measure your result and document it in your file.
