Since I pay for the whole forehead, I get it all over the forehead. The regular forehead wrinkles dont bother me that much though because they dont make me look angry.


But of course you can say you just want it in between the eyebrows. If you pay by unit and not by area, I would guess it is pretty cheap to fix that little spot.

Not to be a downer, but it didn't work for me. I had it done several times (in my 40's) by a plastic surgeon---$400 for the forehead. I had such frown lines people thought I was mad all the time. It had no impact on them and I could still frown. I even had surgery to remove the "frown muscles". I forget what its called right now but it cost $6,000 and STILL did not work. Pretty frustrating. But I'm glad to see it works for others...


I'm frowning right now!


OP I think you asked if liposuction left scars, in another thread. No. I've had a lot.
And FYI, that DOES work. As does a face-lift.

Some people are resistant to botox. Did you try Dysport? Thats almost the same.


I asked my dermatologist if they can just cut the nerves of the frown lines in between the eyebrowes and he said NO.

Well, I had it done. I guess the nerve/muscle grew back

Not at this place but you can find info online.


I guess I was resistant to Botox. At the time, I didn't know there were other options....

there are tiny blood vessels in between the eyes, my dermotologist wont even do that much filler there for me, so he lightly does botox, but being a man, we have deeper lines..
But im ok with it, it takes it away just enough where you still look natural, and not like a plastic mannaquin.


my determologist siad that doing to much filler and botox inbetween the eys in some cases caused blindness because of the tiny blood vessels that run thru there.

that was enough for me, so he just does it lightly there to take the edge away.

again, sight is more important than wrinkles
