Do You Need Upper Face BOTOX?

Facial expressions can leave their mark on your upper face in the form of drooping eyebrows and wrinkles—around the eyes, between the brows, and on the forehead. You may even look stern, sad, or unapproachable, although you feel happy and relaxed. This is a very common concern for our patients, and very treatable with BOTOX, Dysport®, and XEOMIN®—injectable neuromodulators Dr. Mabrie and his associates use at our San Francisco, CA, Bay Area practice to give you a refreshed-looking upper face. 

4 Problem Areas, 1 Solution – Getting In the Zone 

The Upper Face Zones

  • Problem 1: Frowning Wrinkles
  • Problem 2: Low Eyebrows
  • Problem 3: Crow's Feet
  • Problem 4: Forehead Wrinkles

Our Solution: Components of the Upper Face

The specialists at Mabrie Facial Institute are masters at using neuromodulators to refresh the different areas of the upper face zone for a total rejuvenation that helps you look awake, energetic, and more youthful.  

Frowning Wrinkles

These are the vertical lines between the eyebrows, sometimes called “elevens.” These glabellar lines can cause an angry appearance, sometimes described as a permanent scowl. Our team uses neuromodulators to disable the 3 strong muscles that cause these lines.

Low Eyebrows

While heavy, sagging brows tend to convey fatigue, anger, and other negative emotions, most people don’t want overly arched or lifted brows, either. BOTOX can be used to elevate the brows, creating the effect of a subtle brow lift. Our highly skilled injectors use BOTOX to disable the brow depressor muscles, letting the brow elevator muscles naturally elevate the brow. This opens up the eye area and creates a rejuvenated appearance.

Forehead Wrinkles

Sometimes called “worry lines,” horizontal forehead lines or furrows create worry for many of our patients. They are caused by the skin folding that occurs when the brows are elevated. Our team uses a conservative approach in treating forehead wrinkles, as aggressive use of BOTOX in these muscles can produce drooping eyebrows.

Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are wrinkles at the corner of the eyes caused by folding of the skin with smiling or squinting. They can be charming or they can add years to your look. Neuromodulators reduce these wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscle under the skin in this area.

Your Upper Face BOTOX Procedure 

We always take the time to educate you about our process and about the products we will use in your procedure. You will be an integral part of developing a treatment plan, and your provider will be sure to answer all your questions during the process. 

If at your initial appointment, we agree that upper face BOTOX is right for you, we will usually proceed with treatment immediately. We will have you wash your face with an antiseptic cleanser to prevent infection, followed by “before” photos and marking the injection sites.

Neuromodulators are introduced with a very fine needle into specific facial muscles. The product blocks nerve signals to the muscle, and over approximately 4 to 10 days, the muscle will relax.

Upper Face BOTOX FAQs 

How long do BOTOX results last?

BOTOX and other neuromodulators produce results that typically last about 3 to 4 months. However, studies have shown that over time, the duration of results increases with regularly scheduled treatments. 


Does BOTOX hurt?

The needle used for neuromodulator injections is very tiny, and most patients report feeling only a slight pinch when it penetrates the skin.


How much does BOTOX cost?

Our Upper Face BOTOX package is $600 with one of our Physician Assistants, and $700 with Dr. Mabrie. This includes up to 40 units of BOTOX.


Is BOTOX safe?

BOTOX Cosmetic been FDA approved for the treatment of wrinkles since 2002. BOTOX has actually been used medically since the 1960s for conditions like muscle spasms and misalignment of the eyes (strabismus). Additionally, the extremely low volumes of neurotoxin used for cosmetic purposes make the risk of negative health effects practically zero. These botulinum-based products have a very extensive safety record. You can learn more by visiting our comprehensive BOTOX page. 


Will my forehead look surprised or tight after BOTOX?

The surprised, tight look is typically the result of an aggressive surgical brow lift. The beauty of using injectables is that your results should look natural and subtle. Our team takes a conservative approach to upper face botox, with the understanding that we can always “build” on your results at future touch-up appointments. This is all part of our unique treatment process, Illumination 360°.

Loving my results so far! I can't wait to come back again! The staff was so friendly and made me feel welcomed and very safe. The office is beautiful and clean! I was immediately greeted and did a COVID screening with a temp check. They escorted me to my room with a beautiful view of SF. I felt pampered, and their customer service is excellent! The injector Tiffany answered all my questions and made me feel at ease, since this was my first time getting Botox. After she marked my face, she explained where and why she was placing the Botox in certain areas. My frown muscles were so bulky and I didn't like how it always looked like I was frowning even when my face was at rest. Now, I don't always look like I'm frowning! My frown muscles look less bulky, forehead looks smoother and I got a subtle brow lift -- I love it!

They are amazing here w/ customer service, amiable, listen fully to your desires, and work their hardest to bring them to fruition whether it’s the initial appointment or in my case, complementary touch up w/in set timeframe. Just for clarification, when I put “they” I mean everyone from whomever answers the phone/anyone greeting you when the elevator’s doors open and you arrive at your appointment to your departure via the elevator again. Side note: I would include the security/door men as they’ve always been pleasant to me, but they aren’t apart of this business🙂

For my first time ever getting work done on my face, this was a great experience. They made me feel at home and comfortable which eased my fear. I got my mid-area done by Kimberly and it looks amazing. I can’t wait to fly back out there for my second session! If your looking to have work done I highly recommend them, you’ll be happy you did.

I came in earlier today and got a 360 facial treatment done. Everyone in the office made me feel really comfortable. It’s a really lovely space and it’s chic but really homey. I definitely would go back and I feel safe with the results. I feel like Dr. Mabrie was very transparent about the pricing and what he would be using and where. I do still have some swelling in my chin mainly. But excited to see what it looks like when I’m healed!

I really like the staff here however Dr. Mabrie has one of those egoic attitudes. He is good at his job and he knows it. However, he doesn't seem interested in his patients. I have been there several times and I just kind of deal with it. I just wish he acted like he cared about his clients.

Dr. Mabrie is a wizard. After extensive research across California (SF to LA and everywhere in between) for who to consult for some of my skin concerns, I chose this clinic for Dr. Mabrie's multi-faceted expertise and reviews on meticulousness. I wasn't shorted, him and his team are incredible.

I've visited Mabrie Facial Institute twice, and both visits were stellar. All staff members, from the font-line staff, to assistants, all the way up to Dr. Mabrie were kind, caring, thoughtful- I honestly just can't say enough. At no time did I feel pressured about anything. Honestly (and trust me, I'm skeptical of most people), everyone there made me feel appreciated and cared for. They were patient with my endless questions, did very careful work, and were just overall so lovely and personable. I've honestly never had such a great experience before.

I first came across Dr. Mabrie’s practice when I was reviewing the top 100 US aesthetic injectors list for 2019. While I had been to other offices in LA and NYC, I had been dying to go someplace in The Bay (where I live). Finally I had found a practice where I could draw up a beauty plan and see tangible, top of the line results. Fast forward to 2020 and I’m on my second visit with Kimberly for lower face enhancement and masseter slimming with Botox. The warmth, professionalism, and artistic vision of Kimberly and the Mabrie team is unparalleled — I highly recommend if you’ve been considering any type of cosmetic beautification, that you jump right into the chair at Mabrie Facial Cosmetics. Thanks again Mabrie team!! I love my results, and can’t wait to see you again in just a month’s time.

Previously, I've used online coupons offers which slightly improved my sunken eye look, as well as the furrows on my brow and mouth. After receiving Dr. Mabrie's facial treatment, my husband who hadn't been too impressed with my coupon treatments, immediately said, "WowI Baby, you look so beautiful!" I cannot give a greater testimonial than that. And I too share my husband's sentiment - I do look damn amazing! 🙂

I have been going to Dr. Mabrie for probably seven years and I look better than ever! I saw his online discussions of his techniques and decided, this is the doctor for me! I have not been disappointed and it's definitely worth my 2.5-3 hour drive to San Francisco to get my treatments. He and his entire staff are excellent!

Truly, the best practitioner in the Bay Area, and one who keeps up to date on new developments in the field. Since 2017, when I first went to see Dr Mabrie after noticeable loss of volume in my face, he's carefully restored me back to my younger appearance. He doesn't ever suggest unnecessary treatments or over-inject; he's not cheap (nothing in San Francisco is), but his expert approach to fillers guarantees very natural-looking results that will elicit "Oh, you're looking so great!" comments, rather than the dreaded "Got some work done, huh?" Highly recommend him!
