As you get older, you may notice that laughter lines are more prevalent, and your skin is less firm than it once was. While these are perfectly natural signs of ageing, you may wish to take preventative measures to reduce the quantity and depth of the wrinkles on your face and neck. Botox® and dermal filler treatments have become one of the most popular ways to target fine lines and give skin a rejuvenated boost.
The area above, below and surrounding your brows is one where you may notice these telltale signs of wrinkles appear first, primarily because you use your frontalis muscle repetitively every day to show emotions such as surprise, happiness, sadness or anger. Some people also have heavier onset brows which can cause lines to appear prematurely. In the past, many people have been deterred from a traditional brow lift due to its invasive nature, with expensive surgery that requires long recovery time and potentially uncomfortable side effects.
That’s where the non-surgical brow lift comes in. In this post, we’ll outline everything you need to know about this popular procedure and how it can help you restore smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
What is the difference between a surgical and non-surgical brow lift?
When looking into the options to lift your brow, you will likely come across both surgical and non-surgical options. With both providing successful results, you may wonder what the difference is and which is right for you.
As the name suggests, a surgical brow lift (known as eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty) involves going under the knife. An incision is made between the top of the forehead and the beginning of the hairline, thus lifting the area surrounding the brows and giving skin a smooth, wrinkle-free appearance. As an invasive procedure with more permanent results, eyelid surgery may be better suited to those with severe skin laxity who have tried the non-surgical approach but have not had the desired results.
A non-surgical brow lift refers to Botox® injections which are strategically administered in key areas above, below and between the eyebrows. The result is relaxed muscles, diminished brow furrow lines and a more rested appearance. Patients love the non-surgical brow lift for its highly effective results, which can last for several months, as well as its minimal downtime and much lower cost.
What does the procedure involve?
The first step of a non-surgical brow lift is a consultation with your aesthetician, where you’ll have the opportunity to provide your medical and aesthetics history, discuss your concerns and gain an understanding of the results you can expect from your procedure. Your injector will also detail the preparation steps you should take on the morning of your treatment, as well as the aftercare process and what you should do if you encounter any side effects.
When you arrive for your appointment, you will be greeted by your aesthetician, who will repeat the process and answer any of your questions or concerns. If you are highly sensitive to pain, you may be offered a numbing treatment, but you can generally expect discomfort to be minimal with little to no pain both during and after the procedure. Botox injections are often referred to as a “lunch break treatment”, and you can typically expect the process to take no more than 20 minutes. The procedure generates a noticeable lift to your brows and a reduction in lines within a few days, with results continuing to improve over the next couple of weeks.
