Las Vegas – When evaluating and treating the frontalis with neuromodulators, said Shelia Anderson, RN, MSN, CANS, at the fall Cosmetic Bootcamp (CBC), surface irregularities provide clues to underlying factors.
“If you see a line on the forehead, there’s a muscle perpendicular to that line.” One patient she treated had a thick dermis and residual acne scarring, as well as a vertical crease her forehead. “When I questioned her, she always sleeps on the side, creating the crease from pressure.”
Another clue, especially for those who are fairly new at injections, is that “When you see a crease that has formed, there could be an artery underneath that crease since there is less thickness to the tissue. Consider the crease a red flag – I know that I have to be careful injecting in that area and focus on depth of the needle.”
Ms. Anderson is a Seattle-based aesthetic nurse.
