How to Fix that Furrowed Brow
Gravity is one of the largest and inescapable culprits of our signs of aging. While there is nothing we can do about stopping gravity from dragging our skin down, there are procedures and treatments that can help reduce the appearance of aging. Over time, the skin around our eyes and eyebrows tends to sag, making us appear older than we actually are. One of the most helpful treatments to reduce this sagging is a BOTOX® brow lift.
A BOTOX® brow lift can depress the muscles around the eyebrows that cause the skin to sag and strengthen the muscles around it to raise the brow. In other words, this procedure can paralyze the muscles that cause the brows to furrow. Injectable fillers, such as Restylane® and Sculptra® Aesthetic, can be combined with BOTOX® treatments for complete rejuvenation of the brow area. These fillers can reduce sagging and smooth the skin around the eyes, making the eyes, eyebrows, and forehead appear lifted and smoother.
Dermal fillers and injectables are minimally invasive treatments that can plump up and level out the skin around your eyebrows and reduce wrinkles to turn that frown upside down. Patients will experience minimal pain with little to no side effects from this treatment.
