As we get older, we (hopefully) get wiser. But with age comes a few new concerns that you may not have had when you were younger – and one of those concerns might be the appearance of your eyebrows. One of the best solutions is botox to raise your eyebrows.
In the following article, Dr. Dohery will guide you to everything you need to know about the best Botox in Boston.
Why Eyebrows Droop?
Have you ever noticed that the older someone is, the more it seems as though their eyebrows are drooping? This is a common experience, as the brow tends to droop during the aging process. This drooping experience happens as the skin loses elasticity, which is a direct result of the loss of elastin and collagen.
Eyebrows can also appear more drooped due to repeated facial movements throughout a person’s life. Deep wrinkles can form on the forehead, leaving the brow looking lower and sterner than it actually might be.
If you want to improve your appearance and look younger, it’s important to raise your eyebrows to mimic a more youthful face. Rather than going under invasive surgeries to get a traditional browlift, you can use Botox to achieve a similar look.
How does Botox works?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. In 2019, there were over 7 million Botox treatments performed. Of those treatments, nearly 1 million were for eyebrow lifts.
The Botox procedure basically involves injecting a neurotoxin into the muscles pulling the eyebrows down (depressors), and allowing the upper muscles (elevators) to pull the eyebrows back up. It works by temporarily paralyzing the upper eyelid and forehead muscles, as well as the facial muscles known as Orbicularis Oculi muscles.
Additionally, Botox Boston can smooth away the appearance of deep lines, wrinkles, and creases in the forehead and around the brow, which provides a smoother appearance of the brows and can help to reduce wrinkles in the forehead.
Differences between Botox and Dysport for Eyebrow Lift
Botox and Dysport are both forms of botulinum toxin, a cosmetic treatment used to reduce wrinkles and lift brows. Both treatments temporarily paralyze the muscles that cause horizontal lines on the forehead and around the eyes. The main difference between the two is that Dysport works faster than Botox but also has a shorter duration of effectiveness.
While Botox can last up to four months, Dysport typically lasts for two to three months. In comparison to surgical brow lifts, both Botox and Dysport are less invasive procedures with fewer risks and side effects. However, they do not provide as dramatic results as a surgical brow lift would.
Who can get Botox for Raising Eyebrows?
Botox is a great option for those looking to raise their eyebrows and reduce the appearance of frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and excess skin. It is suitable for both men and women with droopy brows due to aging or repeated facial movements.
This non-surgical brow lift option is good for people who don’t want to undergo surgery. Boston Botox candidates should not have a lot of facial skin, as this would need to be treated surgically.
Is there any Risk from Eyebrow Lift with Botox?
Plastic surgeons and experienced injectors typically recommend that patients avoid applying the injection sites too close to the brow muscles as this can cause an angry appearance. There can be risks associated with any type of injection, such as infection or allergic reaction. It is also important to note that Botox does not provide the same results as a traditional brow lift surgery and may require multiple treatments for desired and long-lasting results.
Recovery from Botox for Eyebrow Lift
Recovery time after an injectable treatment with the best Botox Boston is usually minimal. Most patients can return to their normal activities within a few days of the treatment, although some may experience minor swelling or bruises at the injection sites. The results of the treatment will become visible within a few days after treatment, providing smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.
What is the Duration of the Botox Results?
The treatment itself is virtually painless and takes mere minutes. The results of Botox can last up to four months, depending on the individual’s skin type and lifestyle habits. During this time, patients will notice smoother skin due to the reduced dynamic wrinkles and facial lines.
Can I Combine Botox with Other Procedures?
In some cases, Botox may be combined with other plastic surgery procedures, such as eyelid surgery, to achieve even better results. An eyelid lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can help reduce droopy eyelids and improve the appearance of the upper face. This procedure can be done in conjunction with Botox to further enhance the results and create a more youthful look.
Botox injections can also be used to reduce the appearance of smile lines and wrinkles around the mouth. These cosmetic injections can help relax the muscles around the mouth and create a smoother, more youthful appearance.
