Many men and women find that, as they age, their eyebrows begin to droop. This aging pattern creates the impression of anger or fatigue, even if the individual is neither, and is often coupled with deep furrows in the forehead. The plastic surgery procedure most often chosen by these patients is called a forehead lift. Indiana men and women have an alternative to the forehead lift via careful injections of Botox®.
As you likely know, Botox® has been used for almost 20 years to weaken certain muscles in the face, which can cause vertical lines between the brows and crow’s feet at the sides of the eyes. What you may not know is that Botox® can be injected into the forehead to both minimize wrinkles and furrows and to lift the brows. It’s so effective that many of my Chicago area Botox® patients have added it to their quarterly anti-aging regimen.
The Benefits of the Botox® Forehead Lift
One benefit is the quick results! In only 15-20 minutes, I can inject Botox® into your forehead and you’ll be back to your work or social activities immediately after. Within 2-3 days you’ll see the results, which will last about 3-4 months. Another benefit is that quarterly injections will maintain your more youthful appearance without surgery. Lastly, placing some Juvéderm® dermal filler beneath the brow can help lift it for an even better result.
Although patients come to me for my skill and experience in plastic surgery, those attributes are just as important in non-surgical anti-aging treatments.
