What is a Non Surgical Brow Lift?
A Non Surgical Brow Lift is a cosmetic procedure through which a drooping brow line is lifted, by strategically injecting an anti-wrinkle protein or dermal filler.
Mild asymmetry in the brow area also responds well with this treatment.
Benefits of having a Non Surgical Brow Lift
A low or drooping brow can create a feeling of being old, tired or angry. A Non Surgical Brow Lift elevates the drooping brow thus making you look relaxed, rejuvenated and therefore younger.
It is a quick painless procedure and you need not take any time off work. Whereas with a traditional brow lift you must be off work for around a week.
Who should have a Non Surgical Brow Lift ?
This process is ideal for people who have just started to experience sagging brows or, for those who are looking for a subtle lift.
It can also be performed on individuals who are either not ready to go under the knife or, are not fit for a surgical procedure.
The procedure is not recommended for people suffering from muscle weakness and neuromuscular disorders as well as women who are either pregnant and breastfeeding.
How does it work?
As we grow older, our skin starts to lose its elasticity and fullness of youth. These age related changes can cause the skin to sag around the brow area, and, the brow begins to drop from its youthful position.
The lax skin results in lines and wrinkles being formed on the forehead while a drooping brow gives an old, tired and even an angry appearance.
A Non Surgical Brow Lift using anti-wrinkle injections allows the muscles that elevate the brow to work freely, while a Non Surgical Brow Lift using dermal fillers can restore the skin’s lost volume.
Anaesthesia is not required during the procedure although the treatment area may be numbed using a topical numbing cream. Anti-wrinkle injections or dermal fillers are then injected into the treatment area using a series of tiny injections.
Different types of Non Surgical Brow Lifts
Two opposing muscle groups partially determine the position of the eyebrows. One group of muscles pull down the eyebrows, while the other group is responsible for uplifting the brow.
An Anti-wrinkle injection is a muscle relaxant toxin protein, a natural, purified protein which blocks nerve impulses thus relaxing the muscles temporarily. A Non Surgical Brow Lift with a muscle relaxant toxin is injected into the group of muscles that pull the eyebrows down. This allows the muscles which elevate the brows to work freely thus giving the brows a natural lift.
Hyaluronic acid is responsible for creating volume under the skin. However, as we grow older, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our body depletes. A Dermal filler consists of this material which is responsible for creating volume and hydration under the skin.
A Non Surgical Brow Lift injects a dermal filler containing this material to restore the volume of the skin and lift the eyebrows back to their natural, youthful position.
How long will the results last?
The effectiveness of the results depends upon the nature of the treatment. The results of a Non Surgical treatment with anti-wrinkle injections may last for about four months. While, the results with dermal fillers can last from between 1 to 2 years.
How often can I have a treatment?
Patients can have a Non Surgical Brow Lift procedure using this muscle relaxant 3 times a year, and, once a year, for a Non Surgical Brow Lift using dermal fillers.
Non Surgical treatment for Men
The trend of cosmetic surgery among men is on the rise. A Non Surgical Brow Lift will allow men to have a more relaxed, energetic and younger appearance.
