Botox in procerus?

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Botox

Q. If I get Botox in my procerus only, can I expect a subtle lifting effect? As I age, Botox in the corrugated drops my brow and gives me a “hard” look.

A. Yes, if diagnosed properly as the procerus muscle of the mid upper nose, Botox may release some of the downward pull on the mid lower forehead between the brows.

Generally, it is a properly injected corregator and upper lateral orbicularis muscles which will allow the frontalis muscle to lift the forehead.

Find a well skilled, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who understands the anatomy and dynamics of facial muscles to perform your injections. All the best!
