Many people who want to get ahead in their careers or land a job are opting for brow lifts to look younger and stay ahead of the competition. But, in these tough economic times, taking time off from work to recover from brow lift surgery may not be feasible. That’s why less expensive chemical brow lifts with minimal recovery are growing in popularity.
Eyebrows are lifted with the use of botulinum serums such as Botox®. Botulinum serums elevate the brow by relaxing the muscles that cause brows to pull downward. Fillers such as Juvederm® and Restylane® can lift the brow by filling in sunken areas below the brow. In some cases, the doctor can combine both procedures if necessary.
Busy people may find the chemical brow lift more convenient than surgery because it’s minimally invasive. However, surgical brow lift do have advantages. The brow elevation achieved with surgery will be much more pronounced and will last longer. Chemical brow lift can only create a slight elevation to the brows and will only last 3 to 6 months. For many patients, a little elevation is all that is needed.
