Can Botox Mistakes Be Corrected?

BOTOX® is actually a protein and has been approved for cosmetic use in Canada for over a decade

Botox has become a household name over the past 10 years. Seeing photographs of celebrities whose faces haven’t aged in the past 15 years is becoming common . . . but their secret is out. Botox is no longer available only to the elite, it is now affordable for anyone. It is the constant contraction of facial muscles that results in the formation of wrinkles and lines. Botulinum toxin is a protein that relaxes muscles when it is injected, causing them to become dormant for a period of time. When the underlying muscles are relaxed, the result is a smoother, more youthful look. The forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, and the area in between the eyebrows are the most prevalent areas for Botox use.

Choose Experienced Injector

More people than ever before are wanting to get Botox injections. Because of this, many aesthetic salons and clinics are offering this cosmetic procedure, but the staff may not have been trained properly or have the proper credentials. Remember the saying, “You get what you pay for.” Botox mistakes are very rare if administered by a licensed doctor or a very experienced nurse, but the risks significantly increase if you choose an inexperienced or unqualified injector.

A common error for inexperienced injectors is to use too much product, especially in the frontalis muscle, which runs the full length of the forehead. This results in the forehead feeling heavy, the eyebrows lowering and even the inability to raise them. This not only looks unnatural, but lower eyebrows cause hooding (excessive skin in the eyelids) and may feel like you can’t completely open your eyes. Unfortunately, this error cannot be corrected, and the patient will have to endure until the product wears off in approximately 3-4 months.

The opposite of this is the surprised look, where one or both of the eyebrows are elevated too high. This can usually be corrected with a few injections of Botox to relax the muscle that has pulled the eyebrow up too high.

Asymmetrical Injection Problems

One of the most popular types of dermal filler contains a synthetic form of HA (hyaluronic acid), which naturally occurs in our own soft connective tissue. This gel-like substance, injected with tiny needles, fills in lines and wrinkles, adding moisture and lubrication as well. Popular products used by our doctors in our Toronto office include Restylane, Perlane, Teosyal Global, Teosyal Ultimate, Juvederm, Voluma Lift, and Redensity II. Continual improvements have been made in recent years to the durability of injectable filler products, which in turn produce longer-lasting results. Injectable fillers are completely safe to use due to their ability to be naturally absorbed into the skin and metabolized by our bodies. Dermal Fillers can be injected to add volume to the nasalabial area between the nose and mouth, chin, and sagging cheeks, as well as lips, temples, and nose.

Several companies manufacture a quality filler, and our doctors can help clients choose the correct dermal filler product to use, depending on which area of the face is being augmented.

Both Botox and fillers are the same in that they are less intrusive than plastic surgery with virtually no downtime. In less than a half-hour, dermal fillers produce immediate and long-lasting results, and Botox takes effect within 4 to 6 days. Botox and fillers are increasingly popular because the aesthetic improvements can be achieved in a very cost-effective manner.
