Browtox? Is It the New Brow Lift Alternative?

Clinical research shows that the brows are one of the first features that people see on your face. The eyebrows are important because they express most of the emotions that your face can show, from delight to distaste. That’s why many people choose to have a brow lift to eliminate wrinkles and give the brows a more youthful appearance.

However, a brow lift involves surgery and a lengthy recovery. That’s why some patients are having Browtox, which uses Botox injections to shape the brow without surgery.

Below is more information about the Browtox procedure.

Browtox Overview

Browtox is a brow lift that is done without surgery. Your surgeon will use Botox injections in strategic places around the brows to give them a lift, better-defined shape, and smoothing of the skin.

Browtox can take many years off the face by getting rid of sagging brows and opening your eyes for a younger and brighter appearance.

This procedure has become more popular over the last five years, and many patients turn to this non-surgical procedure because of how effective it can be at altering the appearance of aging in the eye area.

Many plastic surgeons report they have seen many transformations with Browtox injections that have helped people aesthetically and given them a much-needed boost of confidence. Browtox can make the brows more symmetrical and helps women apply foundation more evenly to the brow and eye area.

The area around the eyes is one of the first on the face that shows signs of aging, and drooping brows can make you look years older than you are. Also, drooping brows can make it difficult to express your emotions; people may see your furrowed brows and think you’re angry when you’re not!

This is why Browtox injections can be so effective in giving the proper shape to your face and

creating the high arches that you see with many celebrities.

When you have Botox injections in the brow area, the lifting effect also can alter how your brow sits. If you have uneven or droopy brows and you can’t make them even with just shaping, Browtox may make them sit symmetrically on the brow bone.

For many patients, the Browtox procedure is a viable alternative to a traditional brow lift. While the results are temporary and you’ll need more injections within six months, no surgery is required, and there is no recovery time.

What To Expect

The typical Browtox treatment usually takes only 30 to 45 minutes and involves little to no downtime or side effects. You can easily go to work the next day, not missing a beat, and people should start to notice your new, younger look.

When you choose Botox and fillers for your brow procedure, you get a filling of wrinkles and softening of the skin almost immediately. Muscles that drag your brows towards your eyes are frozen, and the muscles that bring them up are unaffected.

Experts say even people in their 20s who don’t have sagging brows may want to have Browtox injections to create the high arches that you see on the faces of so many celebrities today.

Botox Injections Overview

Botox, the standard form of botulinum toxin used in the Browtox procedure, is a popular injectable that reduces or eliminates facial wrinkles and lines. Areas that are treated the most often are forehead creases, frown lines, and crow’s feet around the eyes.

Some patients also have injections in thick bands in the neck, jaw muscles, and gummy smiles.

Botulinum toxin is a highly purified substance that is obtained from bacteria. When this substance is injected into the face, it blocks nerve signals to the muscle in which it was injected. Without those signals, the muscles can’t contract.

The result is a reduction in facial wrinkles and lines.

Some of the other brand names of these injections are Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau. Botox injections may be combined with chemical peels, laser treatments, and other non-surgical procedures to enhance your results.
