How To Do A Botox Brow Lift?
Botox (Dysport) Browlift
A browlift is either accomplished surgically or with the use of a neurotoxin like Botox and Dysport. It does not appear that surgery would benefit you for your situation and it’s not clear that Botox would either.
But if you want to find out, Botox is certainly the better option at this point. Botox (Dysport) relaxes the muscles that pull downward at the outer brow, letting the muscles that pull upward take over.
This is how we accomplish the browlift. Botox will not slow the aging process.
What it can do is slow the development of wrinkle lines and creases.
As we age, we develop forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines through repeated contraction of the muscle that flexes the muscles around those lines.
Botox (Dysport) relaxes the muscles and for this reason slows the development of those lines. (Harold J. Kaplan, MD, Los Angeles Facial Plastic Surgeon)
Botox for Brow lift
Yes, botox will lift your eyebrows. Botox can be beneficial for young people depending on the person and whether or not they tend to contract their muscles and fold the skin in that area excessively.
Some people do that starting at a young age and using botox will help prevent folds and wrinkles in those people. As for Juvederm, typically filler in the area between the brows is not needed at a young age and you don’t appear to need it at this time.
Botox will be the way to go. (Nancy M. Kim, MD, Los Angeles Internist)
Botox Fine for Slight Browlift
I have extensive experience on Botox and brow lifts and I would advise you to go for Botox and nix the Juvederm for now. What you need to do is to visit a trusted dermatologist/provider who can assess your muscle, brow position etc. so that the Botox is given precisely where you can get a nice arch.
Done wrong, you can have a droop or look like Dr. Spock. You can also have your brows tweezed a little so that the arch is emphasized.
The idea is to keep deeper creases from forming (so you seem to age slower). But more importantly, stay out of the sun because photoaging is the most aging factor.
Wear sunblock and ask your dermatologist about retinols and glycolic acids. (Justin Harper, MD, Columbus Physician)
Botox is used above the lateral eye brows to lift them. There is no evidence that Botox makes face age slower.
Fillers can be used in older people who have sagging eyebrows but if you are young you don’t need any fillers.
To age slower, is a science in itself and requires a wholesome approach including good skincare. (Hartej Uppal, MD, Rocklin Physician)
Brow Lift with Botox
Botox for young people to “prevent” wrinkles or to age slower is not a great indication for this medication in my opinion. I only use neuromodulators if I am trying to make a change or improvement.
If active wrinkles exist that I can improve with Botox, then I feel it is indicated. Brow lifting can be accomplished with Botox. The height of the brow can be manipulated because the brow is suspended by 2 opposing muscle groups in a tug-o-war.
One pulls the brow up, the other pulls it down. If you make the muscles that pull it down a little weaker, then the result is a brow lift by the stronger muscle group. Juvederm can also work nicely if volume has been lost in the area, but it is usually reserved for much older patients who need volume.
I would not recommend Juvederm s. (Kevin M. Johnson, MD, FACS, Spokane General Surgeon)
You can definitely benefit from Botox injections to get your eyebrows lifted, it is aproved to use for 18 and up. The question is do really want to do that ? If it is something that annoys you, I would give it a try.
Voluma is unlikely to help fine lines under your eyes. I suggest good eye cream ( my preference- Elastiderm by Obagi). I also use PRP injections and Microneedling and find both very helpful.
Mesoterapy would be another option for under eye wrinkles. (Beata Danek, MD, Chicago Family Physician)
Fillers don’t lift the brow so forget about this. I really don’t understand the doctors who advise you not to have service but my father always said that if the butcher tells you the meat is bad, you should listen.
I think they are telling you that their botox treatment is no good for you. The worst thing about botox is the forehead freeze. For that reason, I developed a new way of doing cosmetic botulinum toxin that does not freeze the forehead.
I call my method the Microdroplet Lift®. The treatment can use any of the currently available botulinum toxin products such as Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport. The key is using our understanding of the neuroscience of facial expression.
At the eyebrows there are brow depressor muscles and brow elevator muscles. We make forehead lines and a resting brow pinch (RBF) because the lifters fight the depressors. My treatment uses tiny volumes of botulinum solution and traps them to specifically treatment just the eyebrow depressors.
This leaves the brow lifter muscle in the forehead untreated. Guess what? When the brow depressors don’t pull the eyebrow down, the brow lifter in the forehead does not work as hard. We get brow lifting without treating the forehead so no forehead freeze.
The treatment relaxes the resting brow pinch. I recommend you try this treatment. (Kenneth D. Steinsapir, MD, Beverly Hills Oculoplastic Surgeon)
It is true that there is some believe that repeated botox injections may prevent lines from forming.
This makes sense logically, however the jury is still out on whether that is true empirically. (Oren Paul Mushin, MD, Houston Physician)
You could have a small amount of Botox placed in the forehead and beneath the brow to slightly lift your brows. I would not recommend fillers for browlift. (Stephen Weber, MD, FACS, Denver Facial Plastic Surgeon)
Botox versus brow lift
You could certainly benefit from some Botox in your forehead which will help give you a smoother appearance. I do recommend patients start earlier rather than later with Botox because it essentially stops the wrinkles from forming the the first place. (Jeffrey Rockmore, MD, Albany Plastic Surgeon)
A botox brow lift is very minimal, I get the question once a week and usually the patient is expecting to see thier brows move up, which they do, but not much.
The difference is about one centimeter. For extremely heavy or fallen eyebrows there is a surgical procedure sometimes covored by insurance, but you dont need that. As for the anti-aging theory of Botox before wrinkles, it’s not proven one way or the other.
If you never wrinkle you never form creases, which are harder to address than the wrinkles themselves. But cosmetic medicine is all about positive self image and self esteem so do whatever makes you feel good, but in my opinion enjoy youth and dont worry- just be healthy! Cheers from Palm Beach. (Jennifer Guthrie, MD, West Palm Beach Physician)
Upper eyelid/brow filler to fill & Botox to lift
Filler do not lift the brows (unless lots is injected) but rather botox can slightly lift the brows. you may benefit from filler to “fill” hollow area in upper eyelid/brows to fill it, not lift.
You can have combination treatment of botox to lift the brows and filler to fill. (Mehryar (Ray) Taban, MD, FACS, Beverly Hills Oculoplastic Surgeon)
Non-invasive treatment for slight brow lift in your 20s
Botox is a medication that is injected into target muscles of the face to selectively relax them for fewer/softer wrinkles. It may also be used to adjust the balance between the muscles that pull on the eyebrow to slightly raise them.
It is important to have a formal consultation where a doctor can ask you questions, examine your face, and take photographs to determine whether you’re a good candidate for this technique to achieve a safe and happy result.
Safety comes first. (Victor Chung, MD, San Diego Facial Plastic Surgeon)
Slight brow lift with Botox
Botox injected by an experienced provider can give you a subtle but definite eyebrow lift. Juvederm or any other fillers would not be appropriate for this area and your needs.
Botox can definitely slow the appearance of lines that are associated with the aging face especially if an individual sees lines appearing early on or if they look at older family members showing wrinkles. (John E. Burke, MD, Portland Internist)
Botox for “pre-juvenation”?
The theory of pre-juvenation is this: if the facial muscles that lead to facial creases/lines/wrinkles can be weakened/softened with Botox before the creases actually occur, the onset of those creases will be delayed.
I believe that Botox use started early can, indeed, delay the onset of wrinkles; but certainly not indefinitely. An excellent strategy is to find a board-certified cosmetic professional with whom you feel an excellent trust relationship; make your cosmetic goals clear, and then formulate a realistic plan together. (David Hartman, MD, FACS, Dover Facial Plastic Surgeon)
You will benefit from the effects of Botox in this area. It will relax the muscles that make up the glabellar complex, therefore giving the area between the eyes a bit wider and lifted appearance.
Botox can be used in younger people as more of a preventative rather then a treatment, like in older people.
The aging slower concept is a response to the Botox keeping the muscle relaxed to where you cannot make an as strong expression that then therefore causes the lines or wrinkles. (Jon Kurkjian, MD, Fort Worth Plastic Surgeon)
I think that Botox (or any neurotoxin, for that matter) is a great option to raise young brows. Your eye brow is in a constant state of tug-of-war between your forehead (the frontalis muscle) that elevates it, and your corrugator and orbicularis oculi muscles, which depress it.
Selective paralysis of the depressors of the brow give you a modest lift, and based on your pictures, is a great first option. (Summit Kundaria, MD, Charlotte Facial Plastic Surgeon)
