BOTOX for Brow lift is one of the most common requests in our practice and here is how its acheived.
BOTOX is a muscle relaxant which weakens the muscles injected, thereby relaxing the overlying skin. BOTOX can be selectively injected into a group of muscles to achieve eyebrow lift while relaxing the frown lines for a few weeks.
If injected into the wrong group of muscles or too close to the eyebrow, BOTOX actually leads to eyebrow depression, or droopy eyes which can last a few weeks.
Facial Muscle are grouped as agonist and antagonist muscles.Think of this as a "tug-of-war" between two groups of muscles working against each other. For each facial movement, there are two groups of muscles working in opposite direction. For example there are eyebrow elevators which raise the eyebrows and eyebrow depressors which depress the eyebrow.
If we inject BOTOX into the eyebrow depressors and the outer part of the eyebrow into the muscles that make you squint, we can weaken these muscles which allows the opposite muscles to be have unopposed action and be stronger, thereby slightly raising the eyebrows.
Of course the results of this treatment vary from person to person and depend on individual eyebrow shape.
