Getting A Botox Eyebrow Lift
When you think of the ways you can get a younger-looking appearance, a facelift might spring to mind. But a facelift only focuses on the lower part of the face, and many people show signs of aging in the forehead, eyebrow and eye area. That’s where a brow lift can come in handy.
Botox injections can help smooth the lines and wrinkles across the forehead and elevate the brow. The Botox brow lift can be performed on its own, or combined with eyelid surgery to give you an overall brighter and more refreshed look.
Who can benefit from the treatment?
Botox brow lift treatment can be particularly effective for people who have naturally drooping eyelids and low-hanging eyebrows.
The brow lift literally ‘lifts’ the skin tissues above and around the eyebrows so that the natural eyebrow arch is a few millimeters higher.
Patients who experience mild hooding are usually suitable candidates for the procedure
How does the treatment work?
The brow lift treatment works by relaxing the muscles above the delicate eye area that pull the browns down, resulting in enhancing the function of the muscle that lifts the browns up.
Additionally, it smoothes away worry lines and deep grooves caused by frowning along the lower forehead. When the muscles around the tops of the eyebrows are relaxed, the skin appears smoother, more toned and the brows are lifted and youthful
Prior to the treatment: Your specialist doctor will medically examine you and make sure you are suitable for the procedure. Topical anesthetic or an ice pack may be applied to numb the area before the injection
Treatment: A small amount of Botulinum toxin will be injected into the area between and around eyebrows to relax the muscle that pulls the eyebrows down. The result will gradually appear and final result will be achieved 2 weeks after the treatment
Post treatment: Avoid touching, rubbing or applying make up on the treated areas for 4 hours. The procedure takes around 15 minutes to complete. Specific aftercare instructions will be given to you on the day of your treatment.
Ensure to tell the doctor about all of your medical conditions, including:
- A disease that affects your muscles and nerves such as Myasthenia gravis
- Allergies to any Botulinum toxin products
- Medication that you are currently taking
- Whether you have had any facial surgery or plan to have surgery
- If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant or breastfeeding
Is there any side effects?
Injection-related side effects are minimal and temporary such as redness, swelling and bruising. Spreading of the Botox to the muscles nearby can be easily prevented by avoiding rubbing or massaging the treated areas for 4 hours
How long the results last?
The results last 4-6 months. The longevity of the result is variable and each individual may obtain a different result. A plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result can be created for you. Our treatment provides a long-lasting but not permanent result leaving you the option of refining your treatment in tune with changing taste and fashion
What will happen if I stop having Botox?
Your eyebrows will go back to where they were. You can stop and start having treatment again whenever you prefer providing that you are a suitable candidate
