Erin a 20-something beauty blogger, presented to our Sydney clinic for her first ever treatment with injectables. She was concerned about her crows feet, frown lines and horizontal forehead lines.
Erin was annoyed that her makeup was starting to stick in her forehead wrinkles. She also just wanted a rally smooth and airbrushed, but natural look.
She was a little bit nervous, as she hadn’t done any injectables before.
We took photos and Erin completed a consent form, where the risks of the procedure were discussed. These risks include asymmetry, bruising and eye droop, among other issues.
We then cleaned her face and completed the treatment.
We reviewed Erin in 4 weeks and the results were great, as we expected, with loss of all the lines that had been worrying her.
Which injectables did we perform?
We were concerned with prevention of the crows feet, so we performed a moderate dose to the orbicularis muscle to stop the eye wrinkle crinkling, which over the long term, will prevent it from etching in.
We were also concerned with prevention of the frown line wrinkles. This area is very important to prevent from etching in, as we want to avoid having to use filler in that area in the future, due to the higher risks for fill in that area.
We also treated the frontalis muscle, which is responsible for those pesky horizontal forehead lines that annoy everyone, because makeup often sits in the creases.
