A non-surgical brow lift with filler

As we age, our brow will tend to sink downward and the tails of our eyebrows will trend downward as well, that is if we still have adequate hair (see eyebrow hair transplant for more info,).  In a woman, if the brow is sunken, it will tend to masculinize as well as age the face.  In a man, it will age and make for a meaner or more angry expression.

A subtle natural brow lift, as can be achieved with hyaluronic acid filler, will serve to feminize and rejuvenate a woman giving her a more alert and healthier look.  For a man the lift will rejuvenate, and also give a more approachable, happier, healthier look.

Brow lifts with hyaluronic acid (HA) filler can last a year, and each time stimulates new collagen and elastin for more permanence.  It can be modified or adjusted easily with the enzyme that dissolves HA filler which is more forgiving than a permanent correction with surgery.

The filler can also be placed in the brow, to improve symmetry.  Asymmetry can be unattractive and distracting.  Many people will develop worse brow droop on their left side due to many years of excess UV radiation through the car window and worse skin laxity on that left side.  Filler is helpful to correct this problem.

With filler treatment, expect slight tenderness within 24 hours after, and possible bruising and swelling for a few days to weeks.  Most physicians will suggest a follow up visit where additional filler or adjustments may be needed.
