Botox Brow Lift—What Is It?

As we age, our skin tends to wrinkle, sag, and not look as full of life as it once did. Today through modern medicine, almost everyone has the ability to regain that once youthful appearance that previously graced our faces.

For years, women and men have been visiting doctors and plastic surgeons for Botox injections to help with crows feet, wrinkles and unwanted fine lines. However, it’s actually possible to use Botox injections to lift your brow. When Botox or Dysport is injected into the brow, it causes the muscles to freeze. Frown muscles naturally pull down on ones face, receiving a Botox injection in the brow makes this impossible and results in the brow drifting upward to it’s resting position.

Generally, different amounts of Botox are required to achieve a brow lift and varies from patient to patient. It’s always a good idea to discuss this type of treatment with your plastic surgeon to better understand if it will be helpful for the look that you’d like to achieve. Botox injections offer a temporary solution to brow lifts with results lasting between 3-4 months. Because of the amount of Botox used in this treatment, it’s best to enlist the services of a board certified facial plastic Oculoplastic surgeon.
