As we age we may experience a mild to moderate heaviness in the brow area. This causes sagging eye brows. One answer of course is cosmetic surgery in the form of a brow lift, but what if you don’t want to undergo such an invasive procedure? You might want to consider an eyebrow lift using Botox. Also known as the ‘brow arch’ procedure, carefully placed injections cause the brow to elevate, improving the positioning of the eyebrows and enhancing the eyes.
Carefully controlled amounts of botulinum toxin are injected into the muscles above the eye area that pull the brows down. When this happens it relaxes them. As it does so the function of the opposing muscle which pulls the brows up is enhanced, thus naturally lifting the brows. In addition the botulinum toxin can also smooth away deep frown lines located in the forehead area giving an all-round younger, rejuvenated appearance. The treatment is far less invasive than cosmetic brow lift surgery, and brow lift cost using Botox is ultimately cheaper. In essence it’s an instant, cost effective solution for those looking to keep the signs of ageing at bay.
Botulinum toxin is derived from a protein found naturally in the environment. When injected into the skin it has the ability to relax muscles by blocking the nerve impulses to those nerves. As a result it reduces muscle activity that causes facial movement lines and wrinkles. The cosmetic effects of botulinum toxin were first documented in 1989 and by 2002 it was approved for use in the UK. Now it’s regularly and safely used in millions of non-surgical treatments every year.
Botox brow lift treatment is used regularly on men and women of all skin types to achieve that perfect look. It can help those with naturally drooping or low-hanging eyelids and those who experience mild brow hooding. In addition the treatment is also suitable for those who simply feel that they would benefit aesthetically from a non-surgical eyebrow lift. The process is one of many that are proven to reverse the signs of ageing. As a result many patients say that they not only look and feel younger, but are more confident because of it.
