Aside from looking unappealing, forehead lines make you look perpetually sad, tired, or upset. Sure, an edgy fringe or cute bangs may conceal those lines but the effects are only temporary. There are two surefire methods for reducing forehead lines and restoring natural youthfulness in the area: a brow lift and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.
Is one is better than the other? It’s like comparing oranges and apples. Both BOTOX® Cosmetic and brow lift surgery can help you achieve a line-free forehead. They just do it in different ways.
Brow lift surgery can significantly reduce the appearance of furrows between the brows and smooth out forehead creases. Currently, the surgery is usually performed with an endoscope inserted through tiny incisions. A more traditional approach involves larger incisions across the head’s crown or within the hairline.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are FDA-approved to soften crow’s feet (the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the outermost corners of the eyes) and frown lines. BOTOX® is your best bet if you want visible results right away. There is no recovery time; cold compresses help reduce any minor bruising and swelling. But BOTOX® results are temporary, lasting three to four months. At that point, more injections are needed to maintain your results.
The ephemeral nature of BOTOX® drives many to seek brow lift surgery, where outcomes can last for a decade. With a brow lift, you need to be patient for your results — it takes between four to six weeks before the incisions fully heal and your results fully show themselves.
A personal consultation is your first step to figuring out which of the two methods can help address your cosmetic issues on your brow and forehead. Call 305.303.3872 to schedule your free consultation.
