What is 'Spocking' after anti-wrinkle treatment? | Cityskin Cosmetic Clinic

When treating foreheads with anti-wrinkle injections, one of the possible complications is called ‘Spocking’ (after Mr Spock from Star Trek). Spocking is where the only the outer parts of the eyebrows lift up when lifting the eyebrows.

An example of ‘Spocking’ and how it can be treated

Spocking is a give-away that someone has had anti-wrinkle treatments and it is something that we always want to avoid. It can be easily corrected by placing one unit of anti-wrinkle treatment in the lines to stop them lifting up.

The video below shows Dr Brown from Cityskin giving a detailed explanation of spocking and what can be done to correct it.

Spocking is easy to fix. Simply place one unit of anti-wrinkle injection in the outer forehead to stop the area moving so much and this will reduce the spocking look
