A drooping brow is a common aesthetic issue that is most likely to occur as a result of the aging process. There are also a number of environmental factors that can contribute to brow sagging. It is not about the age of the person, because aging affects everybody differently. Instead, it’s about how that person’s body reacts to aging.
A decrease in the production of collagen and elastin is one of the primary causes of a drooping brow. This decrease in production occurs as a result of aging, but younger individuals may have more pronounced sagging than older people due to natural differences in each person’s body.
Sun damage also increases the severity of brow drooping. Younger people who spend more time outdoors or who do not practice proper sun safety may notice signs of aging on their brow early on in their life.
