Botox Brow Lift
Age doesn’t just cause volume loss or more lines on the forehead, it also causes the brows to start sagging and become furrowed. You may acquire an angry or a scowling appearance with this wrinkled appearance. Non-surgical treatments, such as Botox injections can be used for correcting this aging effect.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides Botox brow lift and Botox forehead lift procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
Mechanism of Botox Brow Lift and Forehead Lift
Botox is an effective and simple way of having a nonsurgical brow lift. Botox brow lift is helpful in removing forehead lines, raising sagging eyebrows, and reducing the appearance of upper eyelid hooding. Your treatment provider will inject a tiny amount of Botox above the lateral aspect of the eyebrow to provide a lift to droopy brows.
The forehead can be raised by injecting tiny amounts of Baby Botox in the forehead and glabella areas. This will help your forehead appear more relaxed and raised, providing you with a youthful appearance. Noninvasive forehead and brow lifts are preferred by many over surgical options. You can achieve elegant yet subtle enhancement of noninvasive forehead and brow lift using Botox or botulinum toxin.
There are several ways of injecting Botox in the forehead. The procerus muscle (muscle between the brow) may be injected if the droopy brows are low-set. A tiny amount of Botox needs to be injected in the orbicularus oculi muscles (the muscles around the eyes) for pulling the tail of the brow downwards.
On top of this, there are times when the forehead’s upper portion needs to be injected for relaxing the muscles. This helps in pulling the brows up further.
Importance of Choosing a Skilled Injection Provider
There is always the risk of attaining a ‘Spock brow’ or the so-called ‘Jack Nicholson’ look as a potential side effect. This usually happens when the side portions of the forehead muscles pull down harder as compared to the central portion resulting in an unnaturally arched eyebrow.
A skilled surgeon can easily correct the ‘Spock look’ by using tiny amount of Botox on the forehead laterally. Based on this, the brow may appear heavier if too much of it is used in the forehead. This may move the eyebrows downwards resulting in eyelids that appear heavier and eyes that look smaller.
It’s fundamental that you consult with a Botox expert for the best and most natural appearing Botox results. Experienced and trained providers know not to over-inject patients. They will leave patients with a beautiful, natural-looking, and rejuvenated appearance.
Botox Forehead and Eyebrow Lift Results
You should be able to see the effects of Botox within 3 – 5 days after getting injections. However, the complete effects will be noticeable only after 2 weeks. This delayed onset is because botulinum toxin takes time to react with the body.
Botox injection effects can last for 3 – 4 months depending on the patient. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. David Kim receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Botox brow lift and Botox forehead lift treatments.
