Consensual practice recommendations for botulinum toxin injections in the upper and mid-face: forehead-glabella-crow’s feet-eyebrow-eyelid-nose
botulinum toxin is a natural injectable product used since 1974. It was first approved for cosmetic indications in anti-aging treatments in the US in 2002.
botulinum toxin is indeed a muscle relaxant and botulinum toxin injections can correct wrinkles that occur because of frequent muscle contractions. We conducted a survey in order to identify current practices in France. Its goal is to provide practice recommendations for treating the aging upper and mid-face with botulinum toxin.
General considerations, main treatment rules, injection specifications (dose, site and techniques), associated procedures / treatments and follow-up were defined for each face area, ie the glabellar forehead, horizontal forehead, lion’s wrinkles and crow’s feet, lower eyelids, and eyebrow repositioning and reshaping. For the consensus participants, the botulinum toxin use is a global, both preventive and corrective treatment.
