Many people find that their brow area is the first part of the face to show signs of ageing. As the skin of the brows and forehead sags, your eyelids begin to look heavier. Your eyes start to look smaller, and the sagging brow skin may even start to obscure your vision.
Whether your eyebrows have lost their youthful arch or you have noticed wrinkles at the edges of your eyes, a non-surgical brow lift can elevate this sagging skin, leaving your brows looking rejuvenated.
Brow Lift TreatmentFrom $550with 1ml Dermal Filler
Treating The Brows
Dermal filler injections tighten and lift the skin to reduce the fine lines, wrinkles and loose skin caused by volume loss due to ageing. A trained practitioner can use dermal filler to lift your eyebrows, resulting in a more open and refreshed-looking appearance. By filling in loose skin in the brow area, dermal fillers reduce the visible effects of ageing and make the eyebrow area appear more youthful.
Who is suitable for this treatment?
Candidates for this treatment tend to be adults who have begun to notice signs of ageing along their brow line. Many patients opt for brow enhancement with dermal fillers as an alternative to brow lift surgery, which is more invasive and has a longer recovery period.
Most adults who are in good overall health can undergo a dermal filler brow lift. If you are wondering whether this treatment will meet your aesthetic goals, schedule a consultation visit with us today.
Benefits of a Non-Surgical Brow Lift
A non-invasive brow lift can raise drooping eyebrows and smooth out lines on the forehead to help you younger and more refreshed without the downsides associated with going under the knife. The non-surgical cosmetic procedure offers several benefits, including:
It typically takes less than an hour for the treatment to be performed, and results are immediate. The majority of clients don’t experience any side-effects, but any minor swelling will subside within a few days, and you’ll see the final results of your procedure.
You can restore volume to your brows and lift the surrounding skin without the need for incisions. There is minimal downtime, and most clients go back to their daily routine immediately after leaving the clinic.
The procedure does not require the use of anesthesia. You can transform your brows without any of the risks involved with undergoing general anaesthetic.
Dermal filler is a natural way to improve the appearance of the brows. No incisions are made, so there is no risk of scarring post-procedure. Your friends and colleagues will notice that your younger and fresher look, but they won’t be able to tell you have had work done.
What to Expect
The dermal filler is injected during a clinic visit that usually takes less than an hour. The filler is injected into the skin and will increase skin volume, filling in wrinkles from the inside. The resulting plumping changes the contours of your brow line to lift the eyebrows.
Several types of injectable filler products are commonly used for a non-surgical brow lift. Dermal fillers come in a few different types; permanent, semi-permanent and non-permanent. By far, the most common is non-permanent because its effects are temporary and can be easily reversed. Permanent filler can only be removed surgically.
Each filler differs in the exact manner in which it builds up volume under the skin and the length of time it remains in the brow area. The effects of a brow lift with non-permanent filler typically last up to 6 months. Over time, your brow will gradually revert to its pre-treatment appearance. Many patients opt for regular injections to maintain their enhanced brow.
Your practitioner will recommend the type and brand of filler that’s best for you.
First, a topical anaesthetic cream is applied, or it may be included with the filler material when injected. Then, small volumes of dermal filler are injected into pre-selected areas of your brow line and forehead. By using multiple small injections, the dermal filler can be distributed evenly, leading to a symmetrical result.
As soon as the injection process is complete, patients can leave the office and return home or back to work. There is no downtime or bandages. Non-surgical brow lifts are a popular “lunchtime rejuvenation” treatment for people looking for a fast treatment with immediately visible results.
Treatment results can last up to 6-12 months, but the body will absorb the injected material over time. As a result, your brows will return to their pre-treatment appearance. Some patients schedule periodic injections to maintain their brows’ rejuvenated appearance.
How Will I Look After the Procedure?
Results from a non-surgical eyebrow lift are instant. You may experience some mild swelling and redness, but this can be concealed with makeup and will subside within 48 hours of the procedure. Many clients have the procedure during their lunch break and return to work in the afternoon.
Is There Any Downtime?
No. There is no extended downtime after a non-surgical brow lift procedure. You can resume your regular daily routine after leaving the clinic. You may experience some mild redness, swelling and possibly bruising around the injection sites, but this doesn’t last long and can easily be concealed with makeup.
How Long Does a Non-Surgical Brow Lift Last?
The longevity of treatment depends on the type of dermal filler product used and the client’s metabolism and lifestyle. For most people, the dermal filler will last up to 12 months. We recommend a top-up filler treatment to maintain your look from 6 months to a year after the initial procedure.
Do Brow Lift Injections Hurt?
The eye area can be more sensitive than other areas of the face. Your clinician will apply a topical anaesthetic cream to minimize any pain during the procedure. You may experience some pressure as the filler is applied, but most people find the treatment painless.
Can Men Have a Non-Surgical Brow Lift Treatment?
Yes! An eyebrow lift procedure is suitable for both men and women. Using dermal fillers to add definition to the brow line can help you to appear younger, fresher, and well-rested.
Why Do Eyebrows Drop Down as We Age?
The loss of fatty tissue, bone collagen, and elastin is a natural part of the ageing process. Older skin doesn’t spring back like it does when you’re younger, and facial tissue begins to sag.
This is particularly noticeable around the eyebrows. As the upper third of the face begins to drop down, lines and wrinkles form, and the drooping of the outer brow can give the impression of a sad facial expression.
A non-surgical eyebrow lift restores lost volume and stimulates collagen production to help fight signs of ageing and restore your youthful glow.
Possible Risks and Complications
Side effects such as minor swelling, redness, and tenderness are common after a dermal filler treatment. Some patients also experience bruising. Such side effects typically dissipate within one to two days and can be camouflaged with makeup.
While serious complications are rare, infections and allergic reactions can occur. The injected dermal filler can also move away from the injection area, forming lumps underneath the skin. Sometimes these can be massaged away. In other cases, the bumps remain until the body absorbs the dermal filler. Avoid touching or rubbing your brows and forehead after receiving dermal filler injections to reduce this risk.
Rough Costs Involved
Eyebrow lift treatments begin at $480. This cost includes 1mL of dermal filler product. Most patients are able to achieve their desired results with this amount. However, for particularly dramatic changes, more dermal filler may be needed. After discussion of your aesthetic goals and treatment details, you will receive a quote that accounts for the amount of dermal filler required. Book your free consultation visit today.
