Beyond Tweezing: How Injectables Can Boost Your Brows

Tweezers are a must for beautiful brows, but they can only do so much. Those seeking a more dramatic improvement in the overall look of their eyebrows can choose from a variety of injectables with a range of corrective effects.

For minimal tweaking-best suited for those without heavy eyelids-Botox and Dysport are good choices. By injecting one of these into the muscles that pull the eyebrows down, the muscles are weakened and consequently, the eyebrows are lifted. The goal is to train the muscles to reshape the brow over time.

Fillers used off-label such as Juvederm or Radiesse can help lift the tail of the brow, while Sculptra Aesthetic may be used on those with deep hollowness in order to correct the shape.

These noninvasive procedures can be refined over time as the patient ages.
