We all want a youthful appearance but time, sun damage, and genetics can make it difficult to maintain the sexy, rejuvenated faces of our dreams. Thankfully, an entire cosmetic industry has evolved to solve thin lips and sunken cheeks. But what about our brows?
Our brows precede us everywhere we go. As the most prominent facial feature, brows often take the lion’s share of sun damage. Essentially, our brows serve as a shallow visor for our eyes (and take a beating for it). We already know all too well how UV light deepens smile and frown lines, but the skin on our brows can also slacken over time simply from, well, making faces.
Surgical options abound for tightening skin and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. But before you submit to the scalpel, there’s one alternative worthy of your consideration–that familiar workhorse hero we’ve all come to know and love: Botox.
Botox involves the use of a natural, purified protein called botulinum toxin. . When injected into the skin, Botox temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles and lines to create a more youthful appearance. When administered by an expert, Botox can single-handedly achieve long-lasting, low-downtime results comparable in ultimate effect to a brow lift itself. This “Botox Brow Lift” requires steady hands to succeed, but when done properly, it generally leaves patients stunned with the results.
What to expect
Firstly, it’s vital to choose a qualified doctor with plenty of experience in the careful and targeted administration of Botox..During your consultation, your Botox specialist will answer any questions you may have while also outlining the results and minimal recovery period you can expect. Generally, the procedure can be completed in well under an hour with minimal to no discomfort stemming mostly from the injection itself. Beyond that, you should be able to return to work the same day. After the procedure, results appear quickly. You should see a noticeable difference within the same day with more drastic results arriving within a week.
Benefits of a Botox Brow Lift
The benefits of Botox are well documented, but the Botox Brow Lift goes beyond touch-up or quick-fix applications. Botox Brow Lifts are designed to provide total results across the brow area, achieving more than just a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
By relaxing the muscles of the mid and lower brow, the Botox Brow Lift enables your forehead muscles to pull your entire forehead upwards with greater ease, raising your eyebrows and opening up your face. Afterwards, most patients notice an opening effect across their entire face, contributing to brighter eyes, tighter skin, and an overall youthful appearance. Botox can also reduce or eliminate crows’ feet around the eyes and deep, frown or squint lines between the eyebrows for an extra boost.
Some patients may opt to combine their Botox Brow Lift with a blepharoplasty–a minor surgical procedure to correct drooping in the eyelid area–to further increase the potency of their Botox injections. But on its own, the Botox Brow Lift is more than capable of correcting issues high up, low down, or along the sides of your brow.
Who’s a Candidate?
Men and women who experience deep lines across their foreheads, crows’ feet at the corners of their eyes, sagging skin along the eyebrow area, or unwanted fine lines and wrinkles are candidates for the Botox Brow Lift. As always, the final determination rests with the experts. Consult your trusted cosmetic procedure provider about your candidacy and the results you might expect.
