Brow Lift Options: Surgical and Non-Surgical Techniques for Forehead Tightening
As we age, the natural movement of forehead muscles can produce lines and wrinkles that make us look older. A forehead lift, which is also known as a brow lift, improves your appearance and self-confidence by reducing wrinkles and vertical lines. The cosmetic procedure also rejuvenates your face by raising sagging skin on your forehead and around your eyes. A brow lift can be an effective way to make you look younger by placing the eyebrows back in a more youthful position. This anti-aging procedure can be accomplished using surgical and non-surgical techniques.
Surgical Brow Lift / Forehead Lift
The traditional brow lift requires an incision along your hairline to alter the position of the soft tissue of your forehead to smooth out wrinkles and frown-lines while repositioning your brows. The less invasive endoscopic lift utilizes a few shorter cuts. The endoscope is inserted into one incision while the others are used to make the necessary changes. Small anchors are used to hold the skin in place. In addition to less scarring, this technique has a quicker recovery time. Similar to an endoscopic brow lift, a lateral brow lift is an option if you have sagging outer eyebrows but the center of your forehead is in good position. An anterior lift elevates the central brow.
Non-Surgical Forehead Tightening
Depending upon your physical characteristics and individual goals, you may be a candidate for a non-invasive procedure involving the use of dermal fillers and other injectables, such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. This popular procedure can temporarily reverse the signs of aging. These anti-wrinkle injections elevate drooping brows by relaxing the muscles that pull your eyebrows down. They can also remove crow’s feet from around your eyes making you look younger and more rejuvenated. The quick, natural and effective procedure has minimal downtime. If you are concerned about a sagging brow but do not want a surgical procedure, a liquid brow lift may be the right treatment option.
