Depending on the patient, a Brow Lift can sometimes be achieved without surgery. A ‘Non-Surgical Brow Lift’, or ‘Chemical Brow Lift’, can be performed in our medical practice as a lunch time minimally invasive procedure. Usually, this treatment is best performed on younger patients, patients whose brows are just starting to sag, or patients who just do not feel ready for surgical intervention.
When most people think of Botox, they think of getting rid of wrinkles, crow’s feet, and deep creases on their forehead. Botox relaxes the underlying muscle, thereby eliminating facial wrinkles. Few people realize that the position of your brows can be determined by two different muscles working against each other. One muscle is pulling your brows downward, and the other is elevating your brows. When a skilled Facial Plastic Surgeon such as Dr Fiumara places a few strategic injections of Botox along your brows, she can actually weaken the muscle which pulls your brows downward. This gives your brows a gentle natural lift, which for the right patient, can be all that is needed. In addition, this degree of brow elevation is not associated with the “surprised look” that is often a sign of overdone surgery.
The result is a natural, more refreshed awake appearance. This quick and easy non-surgical minimally invasive Brow Lift takes only a few minutes, and is virtually pain free. You can return to work right after the ‘Non-Surgical Brow Lift’, but the full result will gradually appear over the next 10-14 days.
As you begin to age, your skin develops a certain amount of laxity, and begins to sag downwards. Younger people have a mild, natural fullness to their brows. With age, this fullness decreases, and your brows slide downwards. A few well-placed injections of facial fillers, such as Juvederm or Volift, beneath your Brows can elevate this sagging skin and restore your natural brow position. This virtually pain free, minimally invasive procedure takes only minutes to perform, and you can return to work immediately afterwards. The results are visible right away. Often Dr Fiumara will use a combination of these techniques to provide the best possible ‘Non-Surgical Brow Lift’. During your consultation with Dr Fiumara in her Harley Street office, she will evaluate your individual needs and goals.
