Botox is an excellent tool for lifting heavy upper eyelids and sagging eyebrows. Many people between the ages of 20 and 40 are bothered by a slight drooping of the eyebrows and heaviness in the upper eyelids. When used strategically, Botox can lift the eyebrows and reduce the weight of the upper eyelids. Aging can cause skin to sag above the brow and on the forehead, a condition known as eyebrow ptosis.
This can make a person look tired, angry, sad, or much older than they really are, and even change the structure of the upper part of their face. That's why it's a common area to treat with cosmetic procedures. Fortunately, an experienced professional can usually remedy sagging eyebrows caused by Botox easily and safely. If you've had Botox injections on your forehead, it's possible that the frontal muscle responsible for raising your eyebrows has relaxed too much, resulting in droopy eyebrows (and sometimes droopy eyelids). Thompson Facial Plastics has experience solving this problem. If you have any eyebrow irregularity, this can also be corrected without waiting for the Botox injections to wear off.
Brow irregularity can be corrected by injecting a little more neurotoxin on the underside. Over time, this will correct any asymmetry. Botox was first approved for cosmetic use in 2002 by the FDA as a temporary treatment for moderate to severe brow lines. The dermatologist can also inject more Botox into the lower part of the forehead, paralyzing the depressor muscle responsible for sagging eyebrows; this can counteract the relaxation of the eyebrow muscles. A Botox brow lift can also focus on different muscles to smooth wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. Botulinum toxin type A, or Botox, is a specific brand of neuromodulator that is commonly used for facial rejuvenation procedures.
To get the best and most natural Botox results, it's very important to consult a Botox expert for the best cosmetic result. While it's a little different for everyone, patients usually notice the effects of Botox after three to seven days. Thompson Facial Plastics founder Dr. Thompson is an expert in surgical facial anatomy and has applied Botox to thousands of patients in Denver. In some cases, Botox injections can cause the brow to descend, leading to a clumping of the upper eyelids and a saggy appearance.
To help prevent brow loss after a Botox treatment, start by carefully selecting an experienced professional. Cosmetic laser dermatology has the experience you need to achieve beautiful, natural results with Botox. A small amount of Botox should be injected above the side of the eyebrows to lift saggy eyebrows and provide them with elasticity.
