Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The use of Botox for the treatment of hyperkinetic facial lines and furrows is another effective primary, adjunctive, or prophylactic therapy to offer cosmetic patients in the spectrum of treatment options for full facial rejuvenation. Unwanted side effects can be minimized, and beneficial effects can be maximized with a thorough understanding of the facial soft-tissue anatomy, proper patient selection, and administration of the lowest effective doses with minimal volume of delivery. Most often, Botox injection does not replace surgery, skin resurfacing, soft-tissue augmentation, or skin care; however, it is useful when used alone or with the various treatment options to give selected patients the most effective and comprehensive solutions for a more youthful appearance.
