Botox® and Filler for Stubborn Frownline

Botox® and Filler for Stubborn Frownline

Here’s a before and after picture of our lovely receptionist Lorraine, showing her in March 2012 and November 2013.

Her longstanding frown line has never been improved much by Botox® treatment, probably due to bone and soft tissue loss (“volume loss”). It was time to bring in the Juvederm. Lorraine kindly agreed to treatment with Juvederm Ultraplus under the frown and brow area to advance the whole area forwards.

Treatment was performed with a special rounded needle called a cannula which runs under the skin. We also placed some Juvederm Ultraplus at the corners of her mouth to reduce shadowing, and lift the corners of her mouth. The final touch was Juvederm Voluma placed in her lateral cheek to restore a more youthful oval shape to her face, reducing the appearance of the jowls. Lorraine’s husband has been complimenting her on her ‘bright, open eyes’ and she is very happy with her gentle, natural rejuvenation.
