Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, but did you know it can also be used to lift eyebrows? In this article, we'll explore how Botox can be used to lift the eyebrows, the benefits of this treatment, and who is a suitable candidate for it. We can inject small amounts of Botox above the lateral side of the eyebrows to lift drooping eyebrows and open the eyes. By strategically injecting the toxin into key areas of the glabella and eyebrows, the forehead will lift and look more relaxed with a more youthful appearance. When Botox is applied to problem areas around the eyebrows, the muscles relax and the skin over them becomes smoother.
The muscles around the eyebrows stretch upward, raising the eyebrows and making the patient's eyes appear more open. Patients are thrilled to discover that they look alert, full of life and rested. But it's not just your eyebrows. This treatment can be used everywhere to address many aesthetic problems.
Botox can have a subtle effect on lifting the eyelids by raising the eyebrows. Botox is used to lift the outer tail of the eyebrow, revealing a small amount of eyelid skin. By injecting Botox in small aliquots into the lower part of the forehead and the outer tail of the eyebrows, the eyebrow rises just like the eyelids. If you are looking for a profound effect of eyelid lift, you may want to consider blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, to remove excess skin from your eyelids.

Non-surgical brow lifts are more preferred than surgical brow lifts, as surgery can give you a very unnatural “surprised look”. Things like pregnancy, certain medical conditions, and types of medications can prevent you from being a suitable candidate for treatment, or Botox may not properly address your skin problems.
A Botox brow lift can also be the answer for an uneven (asymmetrical) brow line, or a “worried” or “angry” appearance. If you have a noticeable drop in the brow line, or have deep lines on your forehead or between your eyebrows, you may be a good candidate for a Botox brow lift. Green, in front of an injector nurse who learned how to inject Botox in a weekend course, the cost of a Botox brow lift will be higher. Many patients combine a Botox brow lift with Fraxel laser to smooth skin surface and fine lines.
Surgical brow lifts require very long recovery periods, where you end up missing work, seeing friends and family, and opportunities to exercise.Botox weakens the corrugator and procerus muscles, allowing the middle part of the forehead to relax and open and the inner part of the eyebrow to lift, giving you a non-surgical brow lift. For people looking to improve the overall appearance of their face, Botox can be combined with other dermal fillers such as Sculptra, Juvederm, Belotero and Restylane.It's important to refrain from taking blood thinners such as Coumadin, Aspirin, Aleve, Advil or Motrin for one week before receiving Botox injections. A Botox consultation should always be done first to review options and see if a surgical referral is the right course of action for you.
