Botox® for Glabellar

Global Laser Cosmetics

The glabellar, otherwise known as the area right above the nose and in between the eyebrows, and sometimes referred to as the “11”, is a common area that many will develop fine lines and wrinkles. Several factors may cause these fine lines and wrinkles to appear in this specific facial region. You may develop wrinkles from frowning, muscle contractions from having bad eyesight, concentrating while reading, and so on. Fortunately, there are a couple cosmetic solutions that are designed to help prevent and eliminate these wrinkles such as Botox®, fillers and other various treatments we offer here at Global Laser Cosmetics.


What are my first steps for treatment?

If you’re noticing these fine lines forming in your glabellar region, then you should reach out and consult with one of our registered nurses. Coming in for a free consultation is the best way to ensure what treatment will work best for your particular needs. During your consultation you will be educated on all the treatments we provide at Global Laser Cosmetics that aim toward treating fine lines as well as get a recommendation from our specialist for the best way to reduce your wrinkles. Our trained and highly experienced registered nurses are available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about our different procedures to help find what best suits you.

How many units of Botox® will be needed?

Botox® is one of the most common injectables that people look to in order to get rid of their fine lines and wrinkles. Botox® is determined by units. The amount of units needed varies between patients and is something your specialist will suggest in your consultation based on your individual needs. Every person is different and some need less or more units than others, depending on how severe the wrinkles on the glabellar are. Over time, you may require less and less sessions as the muscles weaken from the reoccurring treatments. Repeating the injections helps you see more improvement throughout the process and will leave you happier with the ending results.

Is Botox the only solution for glabellar wrinkles?

If you are looking for something new to experience, other than Botox®, then you should take a look at our new filler called Belotero®! Belotero® is a filler, much like Juvederm® and Restylane®, that adds volume to your skin as well as helps smoothen it. This filler takes action by filling in any moderate to severe wrinkles or folds starting from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth. This filler also allows you return to your daily routine right after treatment with no downtime. Just like any other treatment, Global Laser Cosmetics does recommend that you do come in for a free consultation, so our nurse can take a look and determine what treatment is most suitable for your skin type!

How else can fine lines and wrinkles be treated?

You may also treat your wrinkles by other various types of fillers such as Restylane®, Radiesse® or Juvederm®.  Again, the best way to determine what would work best for you is to talk with a specialist about your options and different types of solutions that would work for your wrinkles and skin type. If you are looking to get any of our services done after you have read the above information and feel like any of these options would be to your interest, please give us a call, so we can set up your free consultation and get you started! Let’s get back to loving the skin that we’re in!
