When the brows and the forehead are plagued by deep wrinkles, creases and furrows, it can negatively impact our facial expression, telegraphing fatigue, anger or sadness even when we are having a wonderful day. Non-surgical rejuvenation of the brows can go a long way to combat these flaws, enhancing the countenance, brightening the smile and in some cases even improving vision.
How can I learn more about a non-surgical brow lift?
The first step in treating brow wrinkles is to relax the frontalis muscle that is responsible for forehead furrows each time that it responds to a particular emotion such as surprise or concern. Injectables such as Botox or Dysport are excellent for smoothing the forehead and addressing entrenched lines. These proteins act to reduce activity in the muscles responsible for facial contractions, thus preventing the possibility of wrinkles forming in the first place. Results can be seen right away and can often last as long as four months at a time.
“This is a hidden gem. I LOVE everyone here. It's so cozy and nice inside. It's almost so perfect I don't want to tell a lot of people about it.”
The second component of treating the forehead and the brows is to deal with sagging skin.
As we age, the skin loses elasticity and collagen reserves, growing dull and depleted in the process. This is why it is so important to stimulate collagen growth, which can be accomplished with many of our other dermal fillers.
Some of the tear volumizers and collagen stimulators we may use to combat sagging in the brows include:
- Juvederm Ultra, Ultra Plus XC, Voluma XC, Vollure and Volbella
- Restylane – Lyft, Defyne and Refyne
Some of the modulators we may use to treat wrinkles and fine lines may include:
