Combining non surgical brow lift with fillers.
When the skin of the forehead area thins with age, the resultant sagging lowers the eyebrows and hinders how open your eyes look. The overall effect is that you look tired and angry. Brow lift surgery is often recommended to rejuvenate the forehead area by removing excess skin and fat, but this may be more extensive than what is needed in some cases. A nonsurgical brow lift relies on dermal fillers to add volume to the skin and reduce sagging.
Advantages of a Nonsurgical Brow Lift
Brow lift surgery may take several hours, and you will have at least two weeks of healing. After the surgery, you may experience tenderness, bruising and swelling, and you will have a permanent scar. A nonsurgical brow lift takes less than one hour and there is no downtime or scarring.
What Dermal Fillers are Used for a Nonsurgical Brow Lift?
Dr. Lewen uses a combination of neuromodulators and facial fillers for his unique nonsurgical brow lift procedure. Neuromodulators, such as Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin® help with dynamic wrinkles that are caused by facial expressions. The lifting of the brow is achieved with dermal fillers, such as Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Radiesse® and Juvéderm® Voluma. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane®, Juvéderm® and Juvéderm® Voluma brings more water to the skin to provide hydration and volume. Radiesse® works by introducing microspheres that provide lift and increase the amount of collagen in the skin.
How Does a Nonsurgical Brow Lift Work?
Dr. Lewen recommends the nonsurgical brow lift for patients who have mild to moderate sagging in the brow and forehead area. You may notice these types of changes on your own, but we recommend that you be evaluated by Dr. Lewen to determine if you do have a sagging brow. If you are a good candidate, Dr. Lewen considers your anatomy and patterns of aging to select the combination of neuromodulators and dermal fillers that will rejuvenate the upper portion of your face. His treatment plan is based on using multiple injections of the appropriate products to carefully sculpt and lift the brow and forehead.
After Your Nonsurgical Brow Lift
You will see an immediate improvement in the area after the procedure. Gradually over the next four to six weeks, the area continues to improve. The results will last several months or longer, depending on the dermal fillers that are used. A nonsurgical brow lift will not stop the aging process, but it may delay the need for brow lift surgery.
