Can Botox raise your eyebrows?

Eyebrows Raising  is a procedure where the lines between the brows get treated with Botox, as a way to reduce and remove them. Botox is a non-invasive process to temporarily lift the eyebrows, which is done by injecting the underlying muscles between the brows, which helps relax them, leading to elevated brows and a more full, open appearance around the eyes.

Who should get Botox?

Can Botox raise your eyebrows is one a very common question when starting to look for solutions to the problem of drooping brows. When the human body starts to age, one of the critical areas on your face that experiences the effects of aging is the forehead area. What people don’t realize is that minor cosmetic treatments, such as Botox injections, can bring significant changes to this area, making their face look younger and brighter. 

As a person ages, they don’t just see the development of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, but they start losing volume as well. The brows start to sag, becoming furrowed, which gives an angry, scowling look. 

If you are over 30 years old and have started seeing some changes in your eyebrows, then a Botox treatment may be a good solution for you. It is always better to begin a treatment sooner, rather than wait until your lines and wrinkles develop further. 

How does a Botox treatment work?

Botox is the go-to treatment for eyebrow raising. A Botox brow lift can raise sagging eyebrows, remove forehead lines, and reduce upper eyelid hooding. Only a tiny amount of Botox is needed to lift the brows, and will be injected directly into the area, which will be your forehead and glabella. Undergoing this treatment will give you a more youthful and relaxed appearance.

These days, many people prefer getting non-surgical brow lifts, as opposed to surgical ones. The reason why the surgical brow lifts are less preferred is that they often leave an unnatural and surprised look on the face. Apart from this, any surgery inherently includes some amount of complications. You may suffer from  headaches, local pain, scars, or even hair loss. These potential complications are the reason that Botox is considered to be a better option when getting a brow lift.

The structure of the patient’s anatomy will determine where exactly the Botox will be injected into the brow. Suppose a patient has a low set of droopy eyebrows;  Botox will be injected into the procerus muscles, which are the muscles you have between your eyebrows first. Then a small amount of Botox will be injected around the orbicularis oculi muscles, which will pull down the brows’ tail. In some cases, the upper portion of the forehead might need to be injected with Botox. This is done to relax the forehead muscles, and this process will further pull the brows upwards.

What sort of downtime should I expect?

Botox treatment may cause localized swelling, and this side effect is quite common for any cosmetic injection. After the treatment, it’s recommended to avoid laying flat for at least four hours. Also,  you should refrain from strenuous exercise for 24 hours after the injection. For the best results with your eyebrow lift, it’s recommended to visit clinics with great reputations. Choose a doctor that has been in the industry for a long time and has a good reputation in the market. Looking up reviews from previous clients of the client can be a good way to gauge their quality. 

How long will the results last?

Once a Botox treatment for an eyebrow lift is given, you can expect to see the results in just three to five days. However, you will experience the maximum effects of the Botox within about a two week period, after you’ve received the injection. The average Botox treatment lasts for at least three to four months.

Wrapping up

Botox treatment is quite useful when it comes to lifting the eyebrows. The patient might feel some soreness in the area where Botox is injected, but there are almost never any serious side effects. Also, the soreness quickly goes away  in a couple of days. Botox treatments can be an ideal solution for those who are bothered by their drooping eyebrows, or the lines they see appearing in-between.
