Botox Brow lift: Can Botox lift the brows?
Is there such a thing as a botox brow lift? The short answer is yes.
Botox is usually thought of as a medication that relaxes muscles especially the ones in between the eyes that prevent furrowing and line formation as well as the outside of the eye that helps crows feet formation. However, if used properly and in the right area, botox can be used to lift the eyebrows about 2-3 millimeters which can be significant in most individuals with mild to moderate brow descent.
The idea behind the treatment is if the muscles that depress the brow are relaxed, the muscles that elevate the brow will takeover and pull the brows up. Women usually get the best results with a botox brow lift. Patients who have heavy brows such as men, and individuals with thicker skin or ethnic skin may not get as much of a lift because of the weight of the brow though the effects of minimizing crows feet formation and furrowing will still be applicable.
Of course, if done improperly, it can give you a ‘spocked’ eyebrow or worse, it can drop your eyebrow even further. A dropped eyebrow can make you look angrier or more tired. However, if you already have a droopy eyelid, or use your eyebrow expressively then the brow drop can be even more obvious.
For a Botox Brow lift, finding an experienced botox injector who understands the underlying anatomy and knows where all of the muscles lie and is familiar with different anatomy variations is even more paramount.
