Two Ways to Boost Your Brow Line
By NewBeauty Editors |
Naturally, the arch of the eyebrows should be raised at the center of the brow line and the tail should taper off in a slightly downward position. As the aging process takes hold, the position of the brows can descend and the brows can lose their feminine shape. Injecting the area above the brows with Botox, Dysport or Xeomin can give a subtle lift but when the upper eyelids are affected too (with hooding), browlift surgery is the only way to fix the problem.
If you have a slightly saggy brow with a lost arch, neurotoxins can help. Injecting the brows with Botox, Dysport or Xeomin can temporarily improve the look of the brows since the muscles that pull the brows down are weakened, to keep them high and at a youthful position. Expect a slight elevation of the brows—about one to two millimeters at most—that will need to be repeated often in order to maintain the results.
A browlift might be a better option if you have severely droopy brows and hooding of the upper eyelids. It’s not uncommon for extremely droopy brows to affect the look of the upper eyelids, making them hooded, especially if there is too much skin. When this is the case, the best method of action is surgery since there is too much muscle and skin laxity to be treated with injectables alone. Expect more open-looking eyes and brows that are in a more youthful position. It may take a good week or so until you are fully recovered from the procedure.
