The forehead may not get the same amount of attention as the eyes, nose, or lips in cosmetic surgery, yet a slight change in the appearance of the forehead and brow area can dramatically improve a person’s appearance.
The ideal brows
Downturned brows can give the impression that you’re perpetually sad or upset. Youthful-looking brows arch upwards.
The appearance of your brows is also heavily influenced by your forehead. A line-free forehead significantly lifts the brows, which in turn opens the eyes for a naturally refreshed look.
The quick fix
If you’re looking for a quick fix for forehead creases and vertical lines, Botox is ideal. This injectable blocks the release of acetylcholine, which is responsible for the contraction of the muscles underneath the skin. The more relaxed your forehead muscles are, the less likely the overlying skin will wrinkle. Botox results last from four to six months, at which point repeat injections are necessary to maintain your results. No recovery time is needed with Botox.
The long-term solution
Brow lift surgery offers the advantage of lasting outcomes for improving severe cases of forehead lines and creases. A traditional brow lift with an incision along the temporal hairline provides lateral support to the brows. The less invasive endoscopic approach is ideal for brows that sit too low. In contrast to Botox injections, recovery from brow lift surgery is more involved and will likely require some time off work.
