A person’s eyebrows provide an important frame for the eyes, the central focus of the face. Eyebrows play an essential role in facial appearance and expression, yet they change their shape and contour and descend into a downward position over time which can cause sagging skin folds in the upper eyelids (called “brow ptosis”). Other people are born with an eyebrow shape and position that require a simple, subtle adjustment for an optimized, aesthetic look. Consequently, many people desire a Nonsurgical Brow Lift, a highly-precise, minimally-invasive, nonsurgical, aesthetic brow-elevating technique — with no surgery, or recovery time — to obtain a higher, more defined, symmetrical eyebrow shape, arch, and position that make the eyes look larger and more open for a youthful, natural-looking, refreshed appearance.
Dr. Hamilton customizes her brow-lifting treatment, which is strategically tailored to her patient’s goals and anatomy. Using an injectable neuromodulator (such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport), which relaxes the muscles around the eye that pull the eyebrows down, her technique effectively micro-adjusts and elevates the brows — in very precise, elegant increments — to create a youthful eyebrow position and a beautiful, symmetrical brow arch and contour. Injecting above the lateral part (outer half) of the eyebrows elevates eyebrows. Micro-droplets of Botox lift and even out droopy brows, smooth the skin to erase lines in the forehead and glabella (between the brows), and raise sagging folds between the brows and upper eyelids, reducing the appearance of upper-eyelid hooding. A tired, sad, scowling, or frowning resting face that droopy eyebrows cause is replaced by a smooth, relaxed resting face with a more open, welcoming look. The Botox — which activates in 4-7 days, with full results in 2 weeks, and lasts 3-4 months — reveals lifted, optimally-angled eyebrows, brightened eyes, and refreshed skin quality with natural movement maintained.
A Nonsurgical Brow Lift is complemented by many other facial aesthetic treatments (nonsurgical or surgical) such as a full Facial Optimization procedure that lightly disperses Botox and Dermal Fillers strategically around the face for a beautiful, overall rejuvenated appearance. For individuals who have a more severe form of brow ptosis (brow descent) or who desire a permanent treatment, a Surgical Brow Lift can be alternatively performed — which also achieves an enhanced, revitalized appearance for beauty and confidence.
