Instagram is flooded with influencers’ faces showing brows with arches sky high. It’s part of the Instagram aesthetic sported by the likes of Selena Gomez and Kendall Jenner. While this might be a passing fad or might be here to stay, there are also people with naturally drooping eyelids and low hanging eyebrows that need an extra lift for their brows. From the years past, getting a brow lift meant getting under the knife. Thanks to advancements in aesthetic medicine, getting brow lifts nowadays can be done without the hassle of surgery.
Botox Brow Lifts
Botox, an injectable drug made from botulinum toxin type A, is widely used to treat facial wrinkles, but it has a lot more uses than that which include brow lifts. Some might be skeptical, how does something that supposedly relaxes muscles lift up your eyebrows. Here is how it works; Botox is administered on the area between your brows where usually vertical wrinkles referred to as frown lines or 11’s are formed. The injections relax the muscles between the brows, smoothing the skin on the outside vanishing the wrinkles. Then the muscles on the forehead tend to pull up the relaxed muscle on the area between the brows. As an effect of those muscles being pulled up, the brows are elevated and the eyes open up.
You can also get additional shots of Botox at the tips of your eyebrows, this will relax those muscles, allowing the forehead muscles to pull up those muscles, too. The resulting level of lift from these injections varies depending on the age and tone of your forehead muscles.
After the treatment, you can immediately see the results and you can also combine this treatment with dermal fillers for the maximum effect. Take note that the body metabolizes Botox, it isn’t permanent, it usually takes around 3-6 months before you need a touch-up.
Fox Eye Lift
Maximize the effects of your Botox brow lifts by adding a facial filler to the procedure, elevate the look further, with this you can truly say a little goes a long way. Dermal fillers work towards regaining lost facial volume. As people age, we lose muscle mass, as result we see wrinkles form as well as drooping skin. To combat that fillers are injected in key areas where there is facial volume loss.
The temples and the tear trough areas are usually targeted to lift the skin, smooth away the wrinkles, fill in the folds and restore the shape of the brows. As an added effect this also tends to open up your eyes by lifting the skin of the upper eyelids, producing a more alert and youthful appearance.
Facial fillers can also be injected directly underneath the eyebrows to give support to lift the eyebrows up. The bony orbital rim tends to be more defined when there’s a loss in facial volume, as there are thinner muscles and more skin. Filler injections soften the appearance of the bony orbital rim, reduces the appearance of the “skull outline” (think Morticia Adams) forming the eye socket, thereby giving a more youthful look.
Facial fillers are usually made of naturally occurring compounds in the body like hyaluronic acid (Juvederm and Restylane) and calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse), hence they are generally non-toxic and has a low risk of developing an allergic reaction.
Advantages of Non-Surgical Brow Lifts
Surgical brow lifts involve plastic surgeons performing incisions and removal of skin. Hence, the brow lift procedure requires an anesthetic and the incisions take some time to properly heal. Whereas with non-surgical brow lift there is virtually no downtime.
It is also prudent to consider the lower risk of infection of injections versus incisions.
Another good thing about a non-surgical brow lift is while the surgical procedure needs some recovery time before you can actually see the results, you can immediately see the results right after the non-surgical procedure.
Not only will you see immediate results, but you also have an option to not continue the treatments and be back to your natural look if the treatment results don’t suit you.
