The vast majority of people who opt for facial aesthetic treatment choose dermal fillers or botox treatment, but there is another lesser known procedure known as a brow lift. So what exactly is it and how can it enhance an appearance? Let’s take a closer look….
As the ageing process takes hold some people may experience mild to moderate sagging in the brow area. This can make them appear older than their years. One suggestion may be a surgical cosmetic procedure that lifts the brow back into position. As you can imagine this is pretty invasive stuff and costly to boot. So what if you don’t want to go under the knife? What are your options? You might want to consider a non-surgical eyebrow lift using botox treatment.
Carefully controlled amounts of Botox are skilfully injected into the area that contains the muscles that depress the brow. This causes the muscles to rest and relax when the brow is in a lifted position. As well as lifting the brow horizontally, skilled practitioners can also lift the tail end of the brow by injecting into the crow’s feet area to the side of the eye, creating an attractive raised arch. The type of treatment carried out depends upon the facial aesthetic requirements of the patient, but primarily the idea is to enhance the framework around the eyes. In addition dermal fillers can also be used in conjunction with a non-surgical brow lift to fill out those deep ingrained wrinkles that occur as we age. Together they can be used to create an impressive youthful look.
Botox treatment for brow lifting is used on men and women of all ages and skin types. It can help those people who experience mild brow hooding as well as those with naturally droopy or low-hanging eyelids, in order to achieve that perfect youthful look. The advantages of a non-surgical brow lift are obvious. It’s non-evasive (unlike a surgical full brow lift), it costs a fraction of what the equivalent surgical procedure would cost, and there’s zero recovery/down time, so patients can go about their daily business right away. Provided that patients choose their cosmetic specialist with care, it really is a win/win situation. Not only does the patient get the look they want, they appear more confident because of it.
