Do you have heavy brows that are making you look older and less refreshed than you’d like? In the past, surgery was the only option to correct drooping brows. However, women and men can now undergo a Botox brow lift to improve the position of their brows and rejuvenate their appearance.
If you are considering lifting your brows, continue reading to learn all about a Botox brow lift and if it may be right for you.
What Is a Botox Brow Lift?
Botox brow lift is a non-surgical procedure that involves injecting botulinum toxin type A into targeted muscles around the eyes, in order to counteract drooping or heavy brows.
How Does a Botox Brow Lift Work?
This non-invasive procedure produces an overall lifting effect of the brows by relaxing muscles responsible for raising and lowering eyebrows.
Since these muscles can pull brows downward, Botox works to deactivate them and reduce this type of negative movement.
How is a Botox Brow Lift Different Than a Surgical Brow Lift?
Rather than surgically lifting and repositioning the brows, a Botox brow lift inhibits certain eye muscles from pulling brows down, which consequently helps to elevate the brows and produce a more youthful and rested appearance.
This use of Botox also provides wrinkle-fighting benefits to the forehead and is especially effective in reducing fine lines and crow’s feet.
Why Consider a Botox Brow Lift?
There are numerous advantages of undergoing a Botox brow lift, compared to a surgical brow lift.
To start, the treatment is extremely quick (it takes approximately 10 minutes) and can be performed in your doctor’s office, without incisions or anesthesia. Plus, patients are able to return to work and resume normal activities immediately after a Botox brow lift, as the procedure has zero downtime.
What’s more, this non-invasive alternative has much fewer risks than a surgical brow lift. It also gives individuals the opportunity to try-on brow lift results for 3-6 months before committing to the long-term effects of surgery.
