EYEBROW LIFTING

How can I achieve an brow lift or shape my brows non-surgically?

Traditionally, the only method of lifting brows up was by surgery. One method used to surgically lift brows was the coronal brow lift. An incision is made in the hair line, and the forehead is pulled backwards to lift the brows. More commonly, the procedure is now performed via keyhole surgery (endoscopic brow lift).
Non-surgically, it is now possible to lift the eyebrows and rejuvenate the eye area.

Firstly by using anti-wrinkle injections, it is possible to relax certain muscles around the eyes to help create an overall lift in the eyebrows. There are certain muscles that hold the eyebrows down, especially the muscle surrounding the eye, known as orbicularis oculi. By careful placement of anti-wrinkle injections into these muscles, the eyebrows are released from this downward pull, and the forehead muscles (frontalis muscle) are left to lift the eyebrows up without being antagonised. This leads to a few millimetres in eyebrow height usually.

Secondly, by injecting a dermal filler underneath the eyebrow, support can be given to the eyebrow and this elevates the eyebrow up. Usually 1/2 to 1 syringe of product is required in this area. It also helps to soften the bony orbital rim around the eyebrows, leading to a softer and more youthful appearance. The ‘skeletonisation’ of the brow is an ageing feature and by placing fillers on the bony rim, it softens this area and reduces any showing of the underlying skull.

Finally, dermal fillers can be used in the middle half of the upper lid/brow to help to reduce the apparent sag of the eyelids. Usually, upper eyelids droop from the outer half first, and this makes the middle half look relatively hollow. By filling the middle half of the brow/eyelid, this balances the appearance of the upper eyelid and reduces the apparent droop of the eyelid (see case study below).
