A lateral brow lift is a procedure that can be
very effective for people with mild to moderate brow heaviness.
This is normally due to naturally-dropping eyelids or
low-hanging eyebrows. As a result, people often state they look
tired or washed out.
The brow lift literally raises the skin tissues
surrounding the eyes and eyebrows, so that the natural eyebrow arch
is a few millimetres higher. It tends to leave the eyes
looking wider and more youthful.
A lateral brow lift with BOTOX® (also known
as a 'chemical lift') offers a non-invasive alternative to surgery
and is an increasingly popular anti-ageing procedure for men
The benefits of BOTOX® injections
for a Chemical Brow Lift
The lateral brow lift
works by using BOTOX® to selectively relax some of the muscles
surrounding your eye, thereby changing the dynamic balance
among facial muscles pulling in different directions. BOTOX®
is injected into two or three muscles that usually pull the
brow down; by weakening these muscles, a lift in appearance is
achieved. By selectively weakening parts of the frontalis (brow)
muscle, the lines across the forehead are also softened.
Although a lateral
brow lift can be achieved through cosmetic surgery, BOTOX®
injections offer a safe, approved and non-invasive
alternative. BOTOX® is a temporary solution and its effects
are fully reversible. Although its full benefit may not be
seen for several days after a treatment, the effects of Botox
typically last for about four to six months.
