What is ‘Spocking’ after anti-wrinkle treatment?
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 when lifting the eyebrows.

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.

How do I treat / fix spocking?
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.
It takes about 5 days after correction of spocking to see the effect settle.
