A traditional brow lift, also called a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that involves physically lifting the muscles and subcutaneous tissue, raising the brow area in the process.
A Botox® brow lift achieves a similar effect, but without the use of invasive surgery.
The Botox® Brow lift is a procedure that can improve the position and shape of the eyebrow and forehead areas and can reverse the signs of aging.
Naturally, as we age, the tightness in our appearance begins to fade. Brows are no exception to that. They begin to sag. Unfortunately, the forehead appears to be sagging with them as well.

There’s definitely an increased demand because of celebrities, in addition to Instagram filters, which tend to raise the arch of the brow. Emily Ratajkowski and Bella Hadid are just a few of the stars who have embraced a more exaggerated brow shape.
Currently the popular shape of the brows is full and arched. Patients are seeing these images all over the media and on the internet. They’re coming in asking what they can do to open their eyes and raise their eyebrows — many are even specifically asking for Botox® brow lifts.
A more visible eyelid as a result of the lift also means a larger canvas for eye makeup.
Hooded eyes are one of the common facial problems for women. It’s a condition that some are born with or caused by the loss of facial muscle and decreased production of collagen and elastin in the eyelid skin over time.
A Botox® injection is an appropriate treatment for hooded eyelids. The treatment can treat a low eyebrow position or slight brow drooping, which is causing the eyelids to hang lower than they should be. Botox® can be injected into the outer end of the eyebrow to elevate the eyebrow slightly.

A Botox® brow lift is a procedure when you give a temporary lift to the eyebrows through strategic use of a neurotoxin.
It works by relaxing specific muscles around the eye area. The position of your brow is partially determined by the balance between a group of muscles pulling the brow up and a group of muscles pulling the brow down.
The lateral brow position is determined by the upwards pull of the Frontalis muscle against the downward pull of the lateral Orbicularis muscle. By injecting Botox® into specific muscles that work to raise and lower our eyebrows, one can reverse the appearance of aging.
If your patient has sagging eyebrows or the position of the eyebrows is lower than they are most certainly suitable candidates, depending on the look they are hoping to achieve.
As well, someone with deep furrows across the forehead – another typical sign associated with aging.
Finally, someone who has more pronounced frown lines between the eyebrows can certainly benefit from this targeted treatment.
The effect of the brow lift is that the skin tissues above and around the eyebrows is lifted so that the natural eyebrow arch is a few millimeters higher.
Similar to most Botox® procedures, the results are not permanent and will gradually wear off after 3 to 4 months. A Botox® Brow lift is the best way to rejuvenate the upper area of the face.
The attractiveness of this procedure is that it can not only reduce the signs of aging, but can also delay the need for brow lift surgery.
It’s a noninvasive procedure and can be refined over time as the patient ages.
Well placed Botox® injections by a skilled physician, can give your brows a subtle yet temporary lift. In other words, the surprised look is something that should never occur.
A Botox® brow lift can take anywhere from 20-40 units of Botox®, although it could be more or it could be less depending on the individual.
There is no definitive answer on how many units of Botox® an individual needs for an eyebrow lift because everyone has eyebrows that are in different positions.
For example, someone might have one eyebrow that hangs lower than the other. In this case that person would need more Botox® in one area of their face than the other to create a symmetry across both eyebrows.
Ultimately a treatment plan should be based on a patient’s individual needs. In an ideal situation, you would have a personalized consultation with an experienced and qualified injector to review your options in person.
