The eyebrow naturally falls and droops with age, especially the sides of the brow more than the area closer to the nose. This sagging tissue then crowds the upper eyes, making them appear smaller. A droopy brow can even decrease visual field in severe cases.
Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX may be used as a temporary alternative to surgery to alter the shape and or position of the eyebrows, in addition to reducing wrinkles.
Facial muscles around the brow pull the brows in various directions. BOTOX targets the muscles that contribute to wrinkles and temporarily soften their action.
Dr. Assassa can lift or arch the brow by selectively injecting BOTOX to relax certain muscles group adjacent to the eyebrows that naturally pull your eyebrow downward, thus allowing your intrinsic lifting muscle of your forehead (frontalis) to do its natural lifting the eyebrows
Dr. Assassa tailors the treatment based on multiple factors, such as an individual’s facial anatomy, degree of aging, and preference. Nonsurgical brow lift with BOTOX is not a replacement for brow lift surgery. Keep in mind that results with a nonsurgical brow lift generally tend to be more subtle as compared to brow lift surgery, but recovery is obviously much easier than surgery.
Results with Botox injections develop gradually over several days and last on average about three months. Minimal to no bruising may occur.
