Over time and primarily due to age, the eyebrows can begin to sag. This results in an appearance that can appear more negative, even when you do not mean to be. Such a facial expression can hamper your social experiences and make other people not be able to read your expressions properly. It also provides an impression of old age, and for many people, youthful contours will always be in fashion.
When we age, our skin naturally loses collagen, a protein that promotes skin smoothness and healing. As collagen levels decrease, fine lines and wrinkles become more prominent.
Your eyelid and eyebrow areas are among the most prone to wrinkling, as the skin in these areas is the thinnest on your body. Maintaining a healthy diet, lifestyle, and skin care habits can help to slow the process of collagen loss.
While we can't prevent wrinkling entirely, non-surgical eyebrow and eyelid lifts are available at Beverly Hills Aesthetics to help you achieve a more youthful glow.
Non-surgical eyebrow lifts are in high demand now, and many nonsurgical methods have been developed that can reduce the appearance of sagging and make for a younger aesthetic. For those who are not comfortable with the idea of surgery, or do not have the time to invest in such surgical procedures, which sometimes require more time off work, non-surgical options can provide the same effects in a shorter time and allow you to return to work soon after.
Non-surgical eyebrow lifts may come in the form of injections, such as Botox, dermal fillers, or other treatment options that can help lift your brows without surgery.
Botox is a class of cosmetic injections called neuromodulators that smooth fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing underlying muscles. With expert hands, Botox can create significant eyebrow lifting. This is accomplished by relaxing underlying muscles (frown and eyebrow muscles) to smooth. This allows the forehead muscles to pull up the now-relaxed muscles between the brows and the ends of the eyebrows, thereby elevating the brows and opening up the eyes. The amount of lift you get will vary depending on your age and the tone of the muscles that are left active to pull up the now-relaxed muscles. The results from a Botox brow lift are relatively quick. However, you’ll also need to get touch-up injections every three to four months to maintain your results.
The eyebrow naturally falls and droops with age to a greater extent 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 the 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.
A non-surgical eyebrow lift is different from a surgical brow lift. In a non-surgical setting, the lift is quick, easy, and harmless, though the results are not permanent. Any additional maintenance is also straightforward and speedy.
Remember that non-surgical eyebrow lifts work most effectively for younger patients with mild brow drooping, creasing, or wrinkling. This procedure may not be as effective for those with heavier wrinkles and severe creases. In these cases, a surgical lift may lead to more noticeable results
Facial muscles around the brow pull the brows in various directions. Botox targets the muscles that contribute to wrinkles and temporarily softens 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 of the eyebrows.
At Beverly Hills Aesthetics, we provide non-surgical cosmetic services from Dr. Sam Assassa, a world-renowned aesthetic specialist. Choose from the following brow lift options and benefit from the most up-to-date treatments.
Dermal fillers are injectables that use skin-plumping solutions that fill in wrinkles. Popular brand names include Juvéderm, Restylane, Bellotero, and more. This treatment method can be completed within minutes, and no downtime is required. You may still experience mild side effects, such as very short-lasting swelling or bruising, and you’ll need additional injections in the future to maintain your results.
Fat grafting is another option you may consider. In this process, fat is removed from areas with excess and injected similarly to fillers to lift or arch the brow. The stem cells in the fat grafts ensure that this method is long-lasting and effective.
Reaction® VST Skin Tightening uses the latest generation radio frequency (RF) technology to create energy that tightens the skin, restores its elasticity, and promotes firmness and is an effective solution for treating facial areas, including the forehead and eyebrows. Significant results include skin elasticity restoration and a tighter, smoother appearance. It takes a few treatment sessions to achieve results.
Dr. Assassa tailors the treatment based on multiple factors, such as an individual’s facial anatomy, degree of aging, and preference. Non-surgical eyebrow lift with Botox is not a replacement for brow lift surgery. Keep in mind that results with Beverly Hills brow lifts 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.
Choosing a non-surgical brow lift to meet your desired look has many advantages. With this treatment, you can:
Reduce forehead lines: Botox works by blocking chemical signals from the nerves to relax facial muscles that can cause wrinkles.
Restore your natural arch: With this procedure, you can bring your eyebrows back to the original shape they were in your youth.
Diminish sagging: Sagging eyebrows can bring your eyelids down in the aging process. Address these effects with an eyebrow lift.
Eliminate a tired look: Drooping eyebrows and eyelids might bring out a tired or fatigued expression that doesn't reflect your mood. A brow lift can help.
Maintain facial movement: Contrary to popular belief, a non-surgical lift does not paralyze your facial muscles. You will be able to maintain your natural expressions and facial movement.
Receive lasting results: The effects of a non-surgical eyebrow lift with Botox can last several months. Because it is a simple procedure, it offers an excellent return on your investment.
