Nonsurgical forehead and brow lift involves injecting Botox, dermal filler, or a combination of the two into specific muscles of the forehead and brow. These procedures are minimally invasive and require very little downtime. The procedures don’t involve any scarring.
Vinings Surgery Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides Botox brow lift and Botox forehead lift to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding communities.
Dermal fillers are gel-like, soft injectables, which can be made from naturally occurring or synthetic substances. The chemicals are injected in the dermal layer beneath the skin. There are several benefits to dermal fillers, while repeat treatments are always recommended:
- Results last from 6 – 12 months
- Increase in plumpness and volume
- Reduced appearance of wrinkles and static lines
Botox procedure is performed similarly to dermal filler procedures. However, Botox works differently. Botulinum toxin relaxes muscles by blocking nerve signals that are responsible for making the muscles contract.
The muscles remain in soft or relaxed form. Lines and creases formed by muscle contraction become invisible. However, the effect of Botox does not become immediately visible like dermal fillers. You will see visible results only after 3 – 14 days after the procedure.
Duration of Botox Brow Lift Results
Botox brow lift results last from 3 to 4 months. Botox injectables, like dermal fillers, require consistent maintenance. These are a few advantages to the treatment:
- Botox is specifically designed for lines and wrinkles created by muscle movement and contraction
- Eyes open more and eyebrows become elevated
- Botox can minimize the appearance of deeper lines and wrinkles, especially stubborn ‘frown’ lines
- New lines and wrinkles are prevented from forming because of a relaxing effect on muscles
Benefits of Liquid Forehead Lift or Brow Lift
Combination of Botox and dermal fillers is becoming highly popular since they complement each other. Dermal fillers are useful in treating static lines and lost volume. Botox helps in targeting dynamic wrinkles. This means that multiple signs of aging get addressed at the same time.
A primary benefit of injectable or liquid forehead lift is that you don’t need any special preparation. Further, there is no downtime or recovery period involved in the procedure. Typically, patients that are treated with this injectable can continue their regular routine with slight or little redness.
There may be slight bruising as well for some people. The brow line will continue rising to its ideal position during the week following the treatment.
Who Should Get a Non-invasive Forehead or Brow Lift?
Cosmetic procedures should eventually be a personal decision. They should be considered after consulting with a cosmetic surgeon. Botox brow lift could be viable and effective if you are constantly trying to find a miracle wrinkles for treating stubborn lines in the forehead and brow area.
You should discuss the advantages of non-surgical alternatives, such as Botox and dermal fillers with your surgeon. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove receives patients from Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and nearby areas for Botox brow lift and Botox forehead lift treatments.
