Age Defying Brows: Botox Cosmetic and Dermal Fillers

As we age, the eyebrows begin to descend in their plight against gravity. This often leads to a tired-- and dare I say ‘sagging’ of the brows appearance. One of the things that can be done to reverse this sign of aging is brow lifting. This can be a great alternative to invasive surgical revision of the eye area and can be achieved in just as little as one or more visits to your local aesthetic expert injector. Brow lift can be achieved with Botox alone or in combination with Dermal Fillers to create a more smooth and youthful appearance.  
Botox Cosmetic functions to relax the muscles that normally work to contract the brows downward. This blocks the neuromuscular cascade which would otherwise, give the eyelids a sagging appearance over time. In relaxing these muscles, the brows are unable to sustain old wrinkles or develop new ones. Results from Botox or Dysport become evident and can be seen in as little as one to two weeks and last up to three to six months. These procedures are done with little to no down time when performed by a professional aesthetic expert injector. Is botox brow lift for everyone? Probably not. If you have had surgery where your forehead muscles were cut, you will not be a good candidate for botox brow lift. You may opt to use Dermal Filler to temporarily improve the appearance of your brows and sustain a lifting effect. If you are pregnant it is not safe to use Botox Cosmetic but there is no evidence that Dermal Fillers can migrate and interfere with the pregnancy. If your droopy eyebrows are a consequence of a genetic trait or is related to your ethnicity, Botox Cosmetic alone might not be the best option. Is there one perfect botox brow lift technique that works for everyone and never fails? No. There are few approaches that depend on the strength of your muscles, practitioner’s experience, and final desired look. But just to mention a few: a midpupillary line injection above the brow, lateral blockage of the orbicularis oculi, as well as partial glabellar complex relaxation are among the most popularly sought out.  
Have an important event coming up? Dermal Fillers produce an instantaneous eyebrow lift and results can be seen the same day you come for your office visit. Available at Orchid Aesthetics office are Restylane Define, Restylane, Juvederm, Voluma, Radiesse among other cosmetic fillers. Be sure to tell your expert injector what kind of look you are trying to achieve so that the correct Dermal Filler can be chosen. Keep in mind that dermal fillers or Botox can also correct brow asymmetries or be used to reshape naturally low-set brows. What is the advantage of using Dermal Fillers compared to botox Cosmetic? Immediate result and works when prior cosmetic surgeries severed muscles and nerves. What are the disadvantages? More downtime and swelling, shorter longevity if not used in combination with Botox Cosmetic and pricy.  So what are you waiting for? Book an appointment and come in today to reverse one of the first signs of aging: sagging brows.
