Botox Forehead Lift
Botox brow lift is useful in treating dynamic wrinkles between the brows and horizontal lines (11s) on the forehead. These lines and wrinkles are formed by expressions and muscle movements on the upper face. Botox brow lift and forehead lift can be used for elevating the height of the brows as well. The procedure may be combined with other procedures, such as eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides non-surgical Botox forehead lift and Botox brow lift treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Mechanism of Botox Forehead Lift
The position of the forehead and eyebrows skin is largely controlled by two muscle groups that are opposing in nature. One group of muscles works towards pulling the upper facial skin downwards while the other group elevates the eyebrows.
Botox works towards temporarily relaxing the muscles that pull the forehead skin and brows down. It allows the muscles that elevate the brows to work in an unopposed fashion. A subtle forehead lift is the result of these Botox injections.
Botox is recommended for adults above the age of 18. Botox brow lift can benefit both men and women with moderate to severe frown lines. People looking for Botox injections for sagging forehead or frown lines between the eyebrows are generally trying to avoid plastic surgery.
Botox forehead lift is best used for correcting sagging skin in the forehead without the need for incisions, cuts, and general anesthesia. Blepharoplasty may be considered by some candidates for maximizing results around the eye area.
Eyelid and Eyebrow Coordination
Lowered eyelids may be caused by furrowed brows. Forehead muscles try to maintain brows in their natural positions through increased contractibility. This leads to the creation of horizontal furrows on the forehead. Botox allows the facial muscles to relax. The muscles stay loose, which helps keep the skin smooth. This erases wrinkles and lines. Results of Botox can remain effective for 3 – 6 months.
The positioning of eyebrows is different between men and women. The ideal brow position for women is above the edge of the superciliary arch (brow ridge) while in men it is right on the ridge. The lateral and medial parts of the eyebrows should be on a horizontal level. Eyebrow surgery can result in disbalance of the brow position, which is why many people choose Botox.
Your surgeon will recommend possible solutions after understanding your needs to obtain the desired effect. The injection area will depend on the part of the brow that requires correction. It will also depend on other facial muscles. The surgeon may choose to take gradual steps until the final outcome is attained if it’s a first-time patient.
Results of Botox Forehead Lift
Botox results may appear in just a few days. You can acquire better anti-aging results over time with more injections, since that would wear down the underlying muscles around the eyebrows.
