Botulinum toxin A shows efficacy in treating upper platysma area of lower face

April 27, 2017

Botulinum toxin A was effective at treating the upper platysma muscle area, showing that the area of the lower face can be safely modulated by neuromodulators, according to study results published in Dermatologic Surgery.

Ada R. T. de Almeida, MD, of the dermatologic clinic at Hospital do Servidor Pứblico Municipal de São Paulo, Brazil, and colleagues conducted a retrospective, open-label study of 161 patients (median age, 57.5 years; 142 women) who had loss of lower face contour, and/or lower face and upper neck wrinkles and lines, during lower face animation.  Patients who had neuromodulator treatments in the previous 120 days or who were planning in the upcoming month to have any procedure to improve lower face contour were ineligible for the study.
