About non-surgical brow lift

Traditionally, the only method of lifting brows up was by surgery.  One method used to surgically lift brows was the coronal brow lift. An incision is made in the hair line, and the forehead is pulled backwards to lift the brows. More commonly, the procedure is now performed via keyhole surgery (endoscopic brow lift).

Non-surgically, it is now possible to lift the eyebrows and rejuvenate the eye area.

There are few ways to do a non-surgical brow lift. It can be with neurotoxins such as Botox or Dysport, or with Dermal Fillers, or even with Threadlift. Let’s explore about Neurotoxins in Brow Lift in this article.

Neuromodulators or Neurotoxins For Brow Lift

You may know neuromodulators or neurotoxins as Botox, Dsyport, Xeomin or Jeuve. They are all from the same family of Botulinum Toxin Type A. The treatment has a proven safety record for over 25 years. Firstly by using anti-wrinkle injections, such as Botox, Dysport or the new Jeuve, it is possible to relax certain muscles around the eyes to help create an overall lift in the eyebrows. By altering the dynamics of muscle activity, it is possible to improve the aesthetic appearance of the face. There are certain muscles that hold the eyebrows down, especially the muscle surrounding the eye, known as orbicularis oculi. By careful placement of anti-wrinkle injections into these muscles, the eyebrows are released from this downward pull, and the forehead muscles (frontalis muscle) are left to lift the eyebrows up without being antagonised. This leads to a few millimetres in eyebrow height usually. The onset of action is 4 days and the average longevity of anti-wrinkle injections is usually 3 to 4 months.

Risks & Benefits about Neurotoxin in Non-Surgical Brow Lift

Neurotoxins are safe, fast and almost painless. The results are natural looking and almost free from complications. However in the untrained hands, if the injections is placed too low, it might diffuse into other muscles, namely the eyelid elevator muscles and cause ptosis of the eyelid, instead of lifting the brows up. Alternatively, if the dose is excessively positioned, without proper understanding of the brow anatomy, then you may end up with Mephisto effect, or Spock sign – giving it a very unnatural appearance.
