Everyone experiences the effects of aging and can see how it begins to change the appearance of the skin and face. As the skin loses elasticity, facial features begin to sag, including the eyebrows. It is very common to notice the eyebrows losing their youthful arch and descending closer to the upper eyelids, which can make the eyes and brow look older. To restore a more youthful appearance, consider the benefits of a non-surgical brow lift, which we offer at Creative Dentistry & Medspa at our Atlanta, Covington, and Alpharetta, GA locations.
What Is a Non-Surgical Brow Lift?
Plastic surgeons offer a surgical brow lift that physically lifts the eyebrows. This is an invasive procedure that requires incisions to remove skin and movement of the tissue on the forehead. There is extensive recovery and downtime, and a significant price tag attached to this procedure. Another option is the non-surgical brow lift that can be performed with only a few injections.
Non-surgical brow lifts are completed using Botox Cosmetic. Botox injections are known for smoothing unwanted lines and wrinkles, but this treatment can be used to create other facial transformations. Botox works by blocking nerve signals to muscles that cause contractions. This is what smooths dynamic lines, but it can also be used to relax muscles that pull down the eyebrows.
During a Botox brow lift, our doctor will carefully place Botox injections to target muscles that contribute to pulling the eyebrows downward. By relaxing these muscles, the eyebrows can lift slightly, opening up the eyes and creating a more youthful brow appearance.
Benefits of a Botox Brow Lift
If the length between your hairline and eyebrows seems to have grown, you may have sinking eyebrows. Botox brow lifts can elevate your eyebrows without invasive and expensive surgery. The procedure can be completed in about 15 minutes – our doctor can perform your non-surgical brow lift during your dental checkup or as a stand-alone procedure. There is no downtime needed after your treatment and the most common side effects are temporary swelling and bruising from the injections.
Botox injections take a few days to begin working. In the 3-5 days after your Botox brow lift, you will notice your eyebrows lifting slightly as the muscles begin to relax. This gradual lift looks natural, and most people will not be able to pinpoint why you look suddenly younger. The results of Botox last about four months – to maintain your new look, repeated injections are needed.
