It’d seem that there is Botulinum Toxin injected everywhere we look. It’s replacing a lot of conventional surgical procedures, allowing people to enjoy similar benefits at more affordable rates, and at much more convenience and considerably less risk.

The surgical brow lift procedure is no different. Conventionally, eyebrow lifts refer to surgical cosmetic procedures that involve making incisions a little above the brow arch, in order to raise and make taut, the area of skin over the eyes.

These procedures usually leave behind thin but quite visible scars, not to mention that they’re expensive, require some recovery time, and are more or less permanent which in the case of undesirable results, may not be such a good thing.

Thanks to Botulinum Toxin, you can now achieve your dream look without needing to worry about all that.

Botulinum Toxin is not a solution that only gets rid of wrinkles, this product can be used to lift the eyebrows, thus improving their appearance and creating the effect of rested eyes.
Unlike surgical solutions for this intervention, with Botulinum Toxin healing is much faster, results lasting between 3 and 6 months.

The Botulinum Toxin surgical brow lift procedure involves injecting botulinum toxin type A into the forehead area and a facial analysis is a must before the procedure (also the medical history of the patient). The treatment has an effect both on expression lines between the eyebrows and on the muscles of the forehead, relaxing the facial muscles and thus lifting the eyebrows. After the procedure, the patient should avoid touching injection area and avoid exercise.

So What is Eyebrow Lift Botulinum Toxin?

This is a safe, quick, relatively easy, non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves the use of Botulinum Toxin to relax the muscles between the eyebrows, which smoothens out the furrow (frown) lines and at the same time, lift the brow arch by allowing the upper muscles of the forehead to have a greater pulling effect on them.

In addition to this, some people also opt for having a lateral surgical brow lift that gives their eyes a feline look

The procedure for lifting the eyebrows with Botulinum Toxin is a very simple one, which requires you to spend only a few minutes in the doctor’s office. As long as you follow the preparation recommendations, everything will go very well and you will enjoy the result to the fullest. The most important thing before performing the botulinum toxin eyebrow lift procedure is to stop taking medications that have a role in thinning the blood, as well as those that can increase light bleeding. The list of substances to avoid will be provided by the doctor from the first consultation.

In some cases, the specialist resorts to the application of an anaesthetic cream before the Botulinum Toxin injection in the brow area. In this way, you will have a procedure with minimal discomfort, which lasts only a few minutes, during which all the steps are explained to you.

Invasive beauty procedures versus non-invasive procedures

Many people would like to make improvements to their physical appearance, especially as the signs of ageing appear, but they avoid them from the start because of fear. This fear can be strictly related to the scalpel or definitive changes that they will not be able to assimilate and that will displease them for the rest of their lives.

If invasive beauty procedures cause you to stress, advanced technology now offers many highly effective, non-invasive or minimally-invasive treatments. therefore, people choose botulinum toxin as an alternative to the scalpel, the stress caused by such quick procedures being minimal or even non-existent.

How botulinum toxin brow lift treatment work?

The position of the eyebrow on the forehead is maintained by an interplay of muscles pulling them in different directions and at varying degrees.
For the inner aspect of eyebrows, the corrugator supercilii are the muscles found between the brows and responsible for the vertical lines that often appear when we frown. These have a downward pulling effect on the brows.

The lateral aspect of the eyebrows are pulled down by the effect of the orbicularis oculi muscle that sorround the eyes and also give rise to the notorious crow’s feet.
Much of their effects are counteracted by the frontalis muscle that spans a greater portion of the forehead and acts to pull the eyebrow arch up.

However you will learn all important things about the orbicularis oculi muscle and other tips and best practices in injecting Botulinum Toxin.
Careful injection of botulinum toxin into certain areas of the brow, relaxes the muscles and allows the frontalis have a greater pull, achieving a higher eyebrow arch.

In addition to this, the forehead wrinkle lines are erased and a more youthful and radiant look is achieved.

Who can have eyebrow lift botulinum toxin?

who can have botox eyebrow liftFortunately, anyone can have this procedure done. If you think you have saggy eyelids or low eyebrows, or you have deep furrow lines between the brows, you can certainly give it a try.

Because the results of Botulinum Toxin brow lift treatment aren’t permanent (some people wish they were though!), the effects will wear off with time (usually within 4-5 months), and you can decide not to have repeat injections if you wish.
Also, like most other Botulinum Toxin treatments in the injection area, the procedure of Botulinum Toxin eye brow lift doesn’t last long, in this case, about a minute or so and you’re all set.

However, Botulinum Toxin (and a surgical brow lift or eyelid surgery) is only recommended for adults 18 years of age and older. Both men and women with moderate to severe expression lines can benefit from a Botulinum Toxin forehead lift, so this procedure is a very popular one among people of both genders.

The procedure of Botulinum Toxin brow lift is contraindicated for pregnant or lactating women, as the toxin can harm the fetus or newborn. In addition, you need to talk to your doctor about the injection area before having this procedure done.

Most people who decide to opt for Botulinum Toxin brow lift have already tried numerous topical lifting solutions, which did not give the desired results.

Regardless of the degree of correction you want to achieve in the forehead area, whether we are talking about expression wrinkles or lifting (eyebrow lifting), it is important to consult a specialist.

Some patients may also consider a blepharoplasty for droopy brows at the same time for maximum results around the eye area, and for a more visible effect.
