Brows and Botox

Have you noticed how certain stars have seemingly flawless skin and very high-arched brows? Cindy Crawford and Halle Berry are notable examples. The question is always asked, is that the gift of pleasant genetics alone, or is there some help from Botox? (Although Cindy Crawford has admitted to the benefits of Botox enhancement.)

The Botox Buzz

The use of Botox® Cosmetic as a neuromodulator to treat hyperfunctional lines helped spark a cosmetic revolution with regard to minimally invasive approaches to creating a youthful appearance. However, in the early years, while creating a more “youthful” look, practitioners were not always yielding a very “natural” look. Often patients were treated to the endpoint of having a totally immobile upper face while the medicine was working. Adding to this, patients were requesting this look and complaining if even a hint of muscle movement was evident at the site of injection.
