Treating Low Brows
If your eyebrows have been sinking lower and lower on your forehead, it's a gradual process. Most people who seek treatment relate an experience something like this: one day they catch a glimpse of themselves in the mirror and come to a startling realization: their eyebrows are approaching the crease in their eyelid. If this has happened to you, you might describe it as quite an unwelcome revelation. No wonder eye makeup doesn't seem worth bothering with much any more. No wonder you always look so tired. There's just not enough left of your bright, beautiful eyes to radiate a youthful, alert expression.
There are two main reasons eyebrows tend to migrate south over time. First is the action of your dynamic facial muscles. The same muscles that form horizontal creases across your forehead and furrows between your eyebrows can contribute to "pulling" your eyebrows downward. In addition, there's the inevitable loss of skin elasticity over time. As your skin loses collagen and tissues break down, supple, vibrant skin tone is lost. Over the years, your skin gives up its ability to combat the forces working against it, like gravity.
Low eyebrows may not have been at the top of your list of aging signs to watch out for. Nonetheless, if your eyebrows have lost their youthful position, your face will look older than it should. Maybe it's affecting not only how you look, but also how you see. Whether your eyebrows are showing the signs of aging, or are causing vision-related problems, schedule an appointment to Rejuvenate! today. We'll take a look at the problem and work out a plan to reverse the trend.
Raising Eyebrows in Denver with BOTOX® Cosmetic or a Lift
To help put your eyebrows back into their proper, youthful place, two approaches are possible. When you come in for a consultation, we'll evaluate your condition and discuss options with you.
- If muscle action is largely the reason behind your low brows, you'll soon be one of the thousands of people in the Denver area enjoying the benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic. The treatment blocks muscle action that pulls on your facial skin. Our BOTOX® Cosmetic specialist injects the substance with tiny needles into the affected area to relax your muscles and allow your brows to move back where they belong. Treatment is safe, nearly painless, and effective. Within the next few days you'll notice a big difference when you look in the mirror, and the treatment lasts a few months.
- Your skin may have lost its youthful tone over time, to the degree that injection treatment will not give you the results you're hoping for. In that case, you can discuss the benefits of a surgical procedure-a browlift, a mini browlift, or eyelid surgery-with one of our expert, board-certified plastic surgeons. We understand that it's natural to want to choose the least invasive solution to any cosmetic issue, but if it's not the right answer, you may be surprised to learn how quick recovery from facial plastic surgery is with today's technology. And it may also surprise you to find out how little pain is involved in modern facial procedures.
