When you look in the mirror, does it feel like your eyes are heavier and your eyebrows are lower than they used to be?
With age, the eyebrow starts to drop and become less prominent due to atrophy of the surrounding supporting tendons and deflation of the tissue through loss of fat of the scalp, forehead and temples.
The eyebrow itself also starts to alter the shape and become less stable. A commonly seen feature is dropping of the outer tail of the eyebrow with loss of the gently flared shape of youth to become ‘comma’ shaped. This is commonly referred to as ‘clipping’ of the eyebrow.
Most people don’t notice this dropping until the skin of the upper lid becomes looser and eventually sits over the eye, impairing vision.
If your eyelids aren’t at that point yet, you may be able to benefit from a simple eyebrow lift with products like Botox, Dysport or Xeomin.Wrinkle Reduction with Neuromodulators
This treatment is as easy as a few strategically placed injections of one of these neuromodulators which main function is to stop your brain from talking to certain muscles, which then relaxes those muscles, resulting in a ‘pulling up’ effect.
You can even decide on where you would the peak of the lift to be, centred or at the outside of the eyebrow.
The whole treatment takes about 15 minutes and after 3-7 days your results will kick in, leaving you with a refreshed, relaxed and more ‘awake’ appearance. In the process, you will probably treat the lines between your brows as well so losing those angry 11’s is a great bonus!
The neuromodulators, Botox, Dysport or Xeomin are made from a purified protein which is safe and the active ingredient, botulinum toxin has been used for medical purposes since the 1950’s when it was first discovered it could be used to reduce muscle spasms.
The cost depends on how strong your muscles are and how much lift you want. Not everyone is suitable for this treatment but after a consultation with Dr. Gidon Frame, you will be given a customized plan and the price so you can make a decision on whether you are ready to go ahead.
Your results will usually last between 3 and 4 months and then the treatment can be repeated.
So if you are someone who would like to avoid surgery as long as possible, this quick, simple and non-invasive eyebrow lift could be just what the doctor ordered.
