Inverted V Eyebrow After Botox San Jose?

by DrBanthia on January 31, 2013

As the supply increases to meet demand for Botox San Jose, nail salons, hair salons, and even dentists have begun to offer this temporary wrinkle reduction treatment.  One of the main negative impacts that this growth in supply has created is an overwhelming view by patients that Botox is a simple procedure that requires very little actual training.  This couldn’t be further from the truth, and a lack of training and expertise when administering Botox injections has led to some unhappy patients with an inverted “v” eyebrow.  As one of the more common results from Botox performed by someone who is not trained, the inverted “v” eyebrow can make patients appear angry and appears very unnatural.

It is not a coincidence that these poor results have climbed as more facilities begin to offer Botox, without truly understanding the underlying structure of the face.  It is important to understand how complex Botox in San Jose can actually be to ensure the very best results.  Botox is a protein derived from Botulism and works by actually weakening the underlying wrinkle-causing muscles.  It is for this reason that injections are precisely placed to target the wrinkle-generating muscles of the face without impacting functionality.

More specifically, the inverted “v” appearance occurs when a disproportionate amount of Botox is injected in the central forehead.  By over-injecting or under-injecting certain areas of the face, the facial muscles forces can act in ‘unnatural’ ways, giving one an altered facial appearance.  This pulling is what eventually leads the eyebrows to bow and give patients a very unnatural appearance.

With thousands of successful Botox procedures performed on San Jose patients, the Board Certified Plastic Surgeons of Reviance Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Center have the training and experience to create a natural appearance that does not appear altered.  Since the results of Botox can last up to 6 months, it’s important have the procedure done by a plastic surgeon that has the experience and training necessary to avoid potentially negative results.
