There are basically two types of wrinkles in the face. Dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by the excessive activity of the facial muscles. These are found in the upper one third of the face and include the “elevens” found between the eyes, the crow’s feet and the horizontal forehead wrinkles. The static wrinkles are those caused by either the descent of facial soft tissue and loss of fat. These are best treated with facial fillers or fat transfer.
I keep hearing about new procedures which use injectables in place of surgery, things like the Botox browlift and the liquid facelift. How effective are these procedures?
I think that injectable treatments can improve the appearance of patients that are not ready for surgery or can be combined with surgery to achieve an overall better outcome. Botox can be used to soften or remove the forehead wrinkles as well as to elevate the eyebrows. There is a limit to the amount of lift Botox can have on the eyebrows. The liquid facelift is a term used to describe the use of fillers and Botox to rejuvenate the face. Fillers are used in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and in the lower face to soften the lines and augment the cheeks.
