Have you heard about the botox brow lift?
We’ve seen much in the beauty press recently about the rise of the botox brow lift – but what is it?
In today’s post we offer you a quick run down on what the botox eyebrow lift is and how it can benefit you.
What is a botox brow lift?
Unlike facelift surgery or brow lift surgery, this cosmetic treatment is non surgical. Botox is a medical toxin that is strategically placed around the eyes, most commonly above the eyes, in order to lift the brow.
The other benefits of using botox around the eyes can include improving droopy eyelids and lifting the eyes. A wider eyed appearance is just one of the numerous benefits this kind of facial rejuvenation treatment can offer.
Who is suitable for a botox brow lift?
The botox eye lift or brow lift is suitable for men and women who want to improve the appearance of the eyes and upper face. It’s more common for older patients, although some younger patients choose to use this as a preventative measure.
Patients must be in good overall health and have realistic expectations of what this kind of facial rejuvenation treatment can provide.
This is not a substitute for facelift surgery and brow lift surgery. If you have extensive facial ageing signs you may need procedures that have a more prominent and longer term effect.
Are the results long lasting?
Results last 3-6 months but you will need follow up treatments in order to maintain the results.
Is it safe to use botox around eyes?
Yes, although it should be used sparingly and with caution. This is an injectable treatment so there is some risk of bruising and reaction.
The aim of the botox eyebrow lift is to subtly lift and smooth the upper face, in particular the eye area. It’s not a substitute for a facelift or brow lift surgery, but it can provide subtle enhancement.
Can it improve eyelids as well as the brow?
If you’re unhappy with a droopy eyelid botox can provide some relief. Using injectable cosmetic treatments have many uses and rejuvenating the skin around the eyes by lifting it and smoothing it are just two of them.
Is this type of treatment painful?
Undergoing any form of treatment with injectables such as botox under the eyes may come with some mild discomfort. However, this is minimal and is managed with topical anaesthetic creams.
What’s the recovery process like?
It’s entirely non surgical, so you are free to leave post-treatment. Results can be seen quickly, although the full extent of the result may take several weeks to show.
You may have some mild swelling or bruising, but this is minor and will disappear within a few hours in most cases.
