I am a 51 year old female and I have some crow’s feet and just a few wrinkles on my forehead. I am interested in some Botox treatments. However, some of the people I have seen look like cartoon characters after the treatment. I am in a sales and training position and I truly talk/express myself with my face. Would this be an appropriate procedure for me?
Botox treatments are not a one size fits all. The beauty about Botox and Dysport is that you can tailor the amount of product that you use to the desired effect of the patient. Treating your crow’s feet with Botox or Dysport will certainly help you prevent wrinkles in an area that is considered less desirable. I tend to be very conservative in the amount of Botox and Dysport that I inject into the forehead for all of the reasons that you have described. I use about half of the amount of Botox and Dysport in the forehead as I would to prevent wrinkles in the brow area between the eyes as most patients do desire the ability to express themselves with forehead motion.
