A Brow Lift often creates an open and more youthful appearance. When brows are heavy, you appear tired and old. Brows may become heavier as we age due to a loss of collagen and a reduction in the support tissue around the eyes. The tired look is aggravated by excess skin of the upper eyelid which appears to rest on the upper eyelashes.
Strategic placement of Antiwrinkle Injections can create a temporary lift to the eyebrows. By using the injections to relax the muscles that drag the brows down (corrugator, procerus, and orbicularis oculi muscles), the upward-pulling muscle of the Forehead (frontalis muscle) can contract and cause a physical lift of the brows for as long as the Antiwrinkle Injections remain active, usually between three and five months.
Muscles of the face have specific functions. Some pull parts of the face up (elevator muscles) and other pull it down (depressor muscles). With our expertise, we can selectively weaken targeted muscles to improve the muscle balance of the face thereby creating a brow lift whilst maintaining a natural look.
By strategic placement of Anti Wrinkle Injections, we may subtly alter the shape of the brow lift, e.g.
Antiwrinkle Injection Brow Lifts require a good knowledge of facial anatomy. If the Antiwrinkle Injection is placed incorrectly, it can actually flatten the brow arch, and could even lead to a droopy eyelid.
Dr Dahlia Tauber has extensive experience in the use of Anti Wrinkle Injections in Melbourne and has trained other injectors in the use of Anti Wrinkle Injections in Melbourne, all around Australia, and overseas. She is the author of the widely used manual in the use of Anti Wrinkle Injections. She works closely with her team of injectors who are all highly experienced.
Dermal Fillers can provide support to the surrounding area of the eye thereby creating a brow lift. Over time we lose collagen and elastin, and the supporting structures around our eyes such as bone and soft tissue shrinks. As a result, the brow drops and the skin and soft tissue below the brow may lose volume. This can be addressed with strategically placed Dermal Fillers. Often this is used in conjunction with Antiwrinkle Injections to provide added lift and support. In addition, Dermal Fillers in Hollow Temples can lift the outer part of the eyebrows.
Due to the proximity to the vessels of the eyes, the risk of a vascular occlusion (blocking the blood supply) to the eye is increased in Dermal Fillers eyebrow treatments. This procedure should only be performed by highly skilled, experienced injectors who have a thorough knowledge of facial anatomy.
