Can I Get A Brow Lift Effect From Dermal Fillers?

Drooping eyebrows, creases in the forehead, and lines around the eyes contribute to the signs of aging. In addition, the effects of gravity and the natural aging process can create a slight sagging of the brow into the upper eye area, making eyelids droop further. Bags and dark circles under the eyes add to the appearance of age. The upper eye may seem too full, and you may often seem angry or tired.

Brow lift surgery

A tired, aging appearance can be surgically corrected with a brow lift procedure, where the brow skin is lifted and tightened, smoothing lines and wrinkles and rejuvenating the upper face.

The sagging skin is permanently removed, although the skin’s natural aging process will, of course, continue as normal.

Alternatives to surgery: dermal fillers

However, there are also non surgical procedures which will temporarily fight the aging process by smoothing and tightening the skin.

Dermal fillers and their brow lift effect: the liquid browlift

Injectable dermal fillers are a very effective non surgical means of facial rejuvenation. Indeed, dermal fillers are often known as a liquid facelift, or liquid browlift.

These dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Voluma, consist of hyaluronic acid which, when injected into precisely targeted areas, adds volume to the facial skin.

It is this volumizing effect which helps dermal fillers have a brow lift effect. Experienced aesthetic practitioners will inject the dermal fillers behind the eye brow. This gently lifts the sagging eyelid.

Dermal fillers injected into the temples will subtly lift the eyes and browline. Adding subtle volume to the temples will help prevent the face from appearing gaunt.

Dermal fillers may also be injected into the forehead skin, carefully massaged and evenly placed, to lift the forehead.

The effects of dermal fillers last from 9 to 12 months.

Botox and brow lift effect

Botox is another nonsurgical injectable treatment to smooth wrinkles in the forehead and round the eyes. Botox corrects wrinkles which are formed by years of muscle contractions, such as laugh lines and crow’s feet. Over time, this often-repeated contracting creates permanent lines. Botox works directly on these muscles. The Botox paralyzes these muscles, making them relax, thus smoothing the lines away.

The effect of Botox, like dermal fillers, is temporary. Botox usually lasts for about 4 months, and can then be repeated.
