If you are seeking a quick and easy solution to sagging brows without having surgery, a BOTOX® Browlift might be a great option for you.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works by relaxing and softening muscles, which smooths out wrinkles and lines. By relaxing particular muscles on the face, other muscles can dominate and create a lifting effect. My goal during a BOTOX® Brow lift is to relax the muscles that pull down on the eyebrows. This not only lifts the brow, but also opens up the eyes, reduces a “hooded” eyelid appearance and creates an appealing arch of the eyebrows. This procedure is only recommended for mild drooping of the brow. During a consultation in our Pittsburgh, Wexford, Sewickley or Greensburg office, I will determine if a surgical brow lift or upper blepharoplasty might better meet your needs.
As a facial plastic surgeon, I have extensive training of the face and neck (both surgically and non-surgically) and can therefore develop a treatment plan that has you looking and feeling your very best. Importantly, all injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic and all other injectables (Dysport®, Restylane®, Juvederm®, Sculptra®, etc) are performed only by me. I have spent many years honing specialized injectable techniques and believe that my patients are best served by me performing the injections.
The following will give you some additional information on a BOTOX® Browlift. If you would like to schedule a consultation to talk about this procedure, please contact Sistine Plastic Surgery.
Can both men and woman get a BOTOX® Brow lift?
Yes, both men and women can be great candidates for this procedure. The ideal candidate is someone who is healthy, has mild drooping and/or heavy eyelids, and has realistic expectations for results.
What can I expect the day of treatment?
Before the procedure, we will discuss possible side effects and I will answer any questions that you may have. During treatment, I will precisely inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the face to achieve the desired effect. Many patients report a slight stinging sensation which quickly goes away. The procedure only takes about 15-30 minutes in our Pittsburgh, Wexford, Sewickley or Greensburg office.
Is there any downtime after a BOTOX® Brow lift?
No, one advantage of having this non-surgical procedure is that there is essentially no downtime. You may be a little red, swollen or bruised at the injection site but this typically resolves the same day or a few days after.
How long does it take to notice a difference after a BOTOX® Brow lift and how long does it last?
You should notice a difference in 3-4 days but it takes approximately 10-14 days to see the full effect after a BOTOX® Brow lift. I always take before-and-after photos so that we can assess your progress and see what a difference the treatment has made. You can expect your BOTOX® Brow lift to last anywhere from 3-4 months. Over time, the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic wears off and must be re-injected to maintain
Why Might A Surgical Brow Lift or Forehead Lift be the Better Option?
Each of our patients will undergo a thorough consultation prior to surgical or non-surgical brow lift. During the consult process, Dr. Leong will assess your specific anatomy and correlate how your brows appear now relative to your cosmetic goals. In some cases, Dr. Leong may feel that a surgical browlift or forehead lift will have a more successful outcome than a non-surgical Botox brow lift. As we age, our skin and muscles inevitably begin to sag. For certain patients, surgery may be the only suitable route to eliminate excess skin and elevate the position of the brow. Additionally, while Botox® and Dysport® can give the brows a raised appearance, please keep in mind that the results are temporary and require repeat injections every 3 to 4 months.results.

Other Uses of BOTOX® Injections

The safety and effectiveness of BOTOX® injections often makes it a great choice to address both cosmetic and medical concerns.
