How Your Dents and Wrinkles Disappear With Botox Injectables and Fat Grafting

March 12, 2015
Heather had a noticeable, deep dent on her forehead. Since her early 20s, she saw that the lines on her forehead were progressively deepening. It got to the point where she couldn’t stand looking at it. She visited Dr. Mulholland, a Toronto plastic surgeon, at SpaMedica to see if she could treat this pesky issue once and for all.

 

Since Heather’s parents both have deep furrows in their forehead, Heather inherited the same traits as well. Dr. Mulholland saw that her parents both had deep grooves on their foreheads when they were in their 30s in the old photos she brought in. Now that she’s in her mid 30s, Heather has a permanent indentation between her eyebrows even when she doesn’t frown. But because she’s been frowning often for so long, the collagen in her skin has changed which adds onto this problem.

 

How Heather’s Deep Forehead Lines Were Removed With Fat Grafting and Botox Injectables
 
Dr. Mulholland injected Botox Injectables in the problem area to put the frown muscles to sleep. Botox Injectables, which temporarily reduces a muscle’s activity for 4-6 months, is the most performed non-surgical treatment year after year. Botox Injectables takes 3-5 days to take full effect.

 

But that wasn’t the only step to correct her indentation. Fat grafting was the next step. Dr. Mulholland took some of her fat from one area to inject it to the base of her lines to soften the appearance.  Heather chose to take fat from her thigh to transfer to her face.

 

The fat had to be purified first before it was injected under the indentation. Dr. Mulholland also added a bit of Artercoll to smoothen everything out.

 

After all of her treatments, Heather’s wrinkles and her forehead looked completely smooth. The results won’t last without maintenance though. She should come in for Botox Injectables about 3 times a year.

 

“I love it. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done for myself,” said Heather. She said she feels really good when she looks in the mirror. It’s a massive difference for her. “When I looked in the mirror, the first thing I would focus on is my dent. But now, I feel great.”
