Botulinum toxin treatments in the upper face are a real 'bread and butter' treatment in most aesthetic clinicians' practice, but are you familiar enough with the anatomy to avoid side effects, whilst also maximising product efficiency?
In this week's Aesthetics Mastery Show, Dr Tim takes us on an anatomical tour of the key muscles injected for upper-third Botox treatments, including the frontalis, corrugator, depressor supercilii, procerus, and orbicularis oculi.
He shares why you should avoid paint-by-number injection techniques; the anatomy you need to know in order to avoid eyelid ptoses; how to get procerus toxin doses right; key tips if you struggle to locate muscles in the first place; and the answer to the crucial question of whether you can treat the frontalis without also injecting the corrugator.
Dr Tim even shares a little-known tip to improve rhinoplasty results and longevity...using Botox.
