What is a Botox brow lift?

Brow elevation is a common request from patients seeking eye rejuvenation. Surgical brow lift is a powerful technique for elevating the brows, however the trade-off is the resultant scarring and required downtime for healing.  Many patients inquire about a lesser invasive option to achieve brow elevation, the so-called Botox brow lift.

How does a Botox brow lift work?

Botox is a neuromodulator which temporarily weakens underlying muscles.  When injected for improving the appearance of wrinkles, it does so by weakening the muscles responsible for causing dynamic wrinkles to form.  A Botox brow lift works a little differently by targeting opposing muscles.  Approximately 5-8 units of Botox are injected on each side within the orbicularis oculi muscle.  The injection is performed just below the eyebrow towards the outer eye region.  This muscle is responsible for lowering the outer brow at this site.  By weakening the muscle responsible for eyebrow depression, this leaves the eyebrow elevator – the frontalis muscle – unopposed.  Through this effect, the frontalis muscle may achieve a few millimetres of outer brow elevation.  This may accentuate the curvature of the outer brow and increase upper eyelid show as well to rejuvenate the eye region.

How long does a Botox brow lift last?

The effects of Botox generally wear off within 3-6 months.  It takes effect generally 4-5 days post-injection with peak effects at approximately 2 weeks.

What are associated risks?

The most common risks of Botox include bruising, discomfort upon injection, and swelling. An extensive review of risks and benefits of Botox will be discussed during consultation.  Asymmetry is an additional risk, although differential amounts may be injected between the two sides to address pre-existing asymmetry.

 

How does Botox work?

Botox works by injecting the muscle, so it no longer contracts as forcefully, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.

Botox is not a facial filler – it will not fill existing wrinkles or add volume to your face neither does it affect the quality of your skin, elasticity or the pigmentation.

Botox can be used for aesthetic purposes and other conditions such as stopping excessive sweating. Recently we saw an increase of men receiving Botox into the scrotum.
