Collagen and fat loss can cause your eyebrows to droop, creating a hooded look over your eyelids. Luckily, there are a few ways to reverse course.

Injecting the area above the brow with Botox lifts the brow into a more youthful position. “The goal is to retrain the muscles to reshape the brow overtime,” says New York oculoplastic surgeon Joseph A. Eviatar, MD.

Fillers like Juvéderm and Radiesse can help lift the tail of the brow, while Sculptra Aesthetic can help correct the shape of the eye, instantly. “These are noninvasive procedures and can be refined over time as the patient ages,” says Dr. Eviatar.

A permanent and dramatic fix, browlift surgery is usually done endoscopically, with small incisions at the temple, hairline or upper eyelid crease. It can also be done with an incision across the crown or along the hairline (necessary if excess skin must be removed). “You have to tailor the procedure for the foals the patient wants to achieve, what can be realistically achieved, as well as the tradeoffs they are willing to accept,” says La Jolla, CA, plastic surgeon Robert Singer, MD. Even after a browlift, many patients receive Botox injections to help lessen muscle movement while retaining the lift and enhancing the shape, according to Boca Raton, FL, oculoplastic surgeon Steven Fagien, MD.
