Brows lift Also known as forehead lift. If you are bothered by these signs of aging in the brow region, a brow lift may be right for you. As one ages, deep horizontal creases and wrinkle lines may appear on the brow. Frown lines between the brows can make us look “angry” or “too serious”. A brow lift or forehead lift reverses the effects of gravity and tightens the soft tissues of the forehead to restore a more youthful contour to your forehead skin, upper eyelids and eyebrows. There are various brow-lift methods.
Dr. Akbari performs non-surgical brow lifts using Botox, gel injection and thread lift to help you achieve a more youthful, energetic appearance without surgery. During your consultation the benefits or what can be achieved by the procedure and what should be expected will be thoroughly discussed.
• Sagging or low eyebrow position creates a tired, sad or grumpy appearance
• You have deep horizontal creases across the forehead
• You have frown lines or furrows between the eyebrows or across the top of your nose
• You have excess skin or fatty tissue hanging over your eyes
This process is ideal for people who have just started to experience sagging brows or, for those who are looking for a subtle lift.It can also be performed on individuals who are either not ready to go under the knife or, are not fit for a surgical procedure.The procedure is not recommended for people suffering from muscle weakness and neuromuscular disorders as well as women who are either pregnant and breastfeeding.
Anyone experiencing droopy eyelids or lowered brows hoping to avoid a face lift, surgical brow lift, or blepharoplasty eyelid surgery might consider this procedure.
A low or drooping brow can create a feeling of being old, tired or angry. A Non Surgical Brow Lift elevates the drooping brow thus making you look relaxed, rejuvenated and therefore younger.It is a quick painless procedure and you need not take any time off work. Whereas with a traditional brow lift you must be off work for around a week.
During your consultation, please inform your doctor of any medical conditions and expectations you have regarding the procedure.You should avoid taking anticoagulants, high doses of Vitamin E supplements, products containing Aspirin and Ibuprofen for about a week prior to the procedure. Please check with your doctor before stopping any of your medications.You must also refrain from having red wine and multivitamins two days before you undergo a Non Surgical Brow Lift procedure.
Using Botox in a specialized treatment pattern can help elevate a drooping brow line while maintaining a completely natural and relaxed look. This simple procedure provides patients with a rewarding rejuvenation of the upper portion of the face. The injection of these two agents can also correct mild natural brow asymmetry without the need for a surgical procedure.
Botox and Dysport are both a purified form of protein and when injected into a site have the potential to smooth lines by relaxing the underlying muscles. In the case of the brow lift, they relax downward pulling muscles, allowing the brow to naturally rest higher.
Gel injection can reshape and lift the brow. As we age, our eyebrows lose projection and height, the bone and soft tissue dissolves, leaving us with reduced structural support in that area. It is easy to replace the support in the brows with gel. Gel may be injected into the outer brow itself to give more projection to that area.
Gel injection can improve the height of the brows, the aging of the brows and the shape of the brows. Gel injection can be used to improve the appearance of prominent brow ridges, to widen the eyebrows and to reverse the aging appearance in the face region around the eyebrows.
A polypropylene suture material allows performing minimally invasive brow lift procedures. Contour Threads, which are 25 cm in length, are made from polypropylene material with unidirectional cogs running along the length of the suture. The devices are inserted into the midface area and anchored in an immobile area of the scalp. When the suture is pulled, the barbs of the suture open and engage the tissue, lifting the tissue for a facelift-like result.
Without the need of performing an invasive brow-lift, the lifting is done by the threads pulling the skin taut, according to a press release from Surgical Specialties. Typically, the procedure takes 45 minutes under local anesthesia, and the patient takes 2 to 3 days to heal, according to the company press release.
No special post operation care is required. Slight swelling or bruising might take place for which you may be given anti bruising products.
Sometimes, a combination of a couple of these options above is desired or more desirable, depending on each person’s situation. All these options, above, can provide results that are more natural in ‘the look’ than the older surgical brow lift approach. By slightly lifting the brows, you will achieve a more youthful and energetic facial appearance.This quick procedure will also brighten the appearance of the eyes while maintaining a natural, relaxed look. Results appear gradually and are fully visible within the first week or two following treatment, depending on which injectable is used.

Patients can have a Non Surgical Brow Lift procedure using this muscle relaxant 3 times a year, and, once a year, for a Non Surgical Brow Lift using dermal fillers.
