Botox to the Glabella

This patient had Botox placed into her glabella (area between her eyes, also known as the vertical 1’s), 10 days prior to the after photo.  Notice in the before picture the clear visiblity of her vertical 1’s, one on each side of her midline.  In the after photo the lines present on her skin are still there but there is no muscle activity to make the vertical 1’s worse.  Another use of Botox is to prevent these lines from developing in the first place in patients who have yet to develop the presence of a permanent crease by starting Botox earlier in life.
