A Botox brow lift is are injections that are commonly used to treat and prevent wrinkles on the forehead, frown, and crow’s feet. It disrupts nerve signals in certain facial muscles, resulting in temporary muscle weakening and the inability to contract in the treated area. One of Botox’s advanced techniques raises eyebrows with strategic botox injections. This is one of the most popular treatments in Essex.
However, before proceeding with the booking, it is important that you know your options.
But first let’s take a look at the Botox Brow Lift.
What is Botox-Browlift? And what are the alternatives?
A true brow lift, also known as a “forehead lift”, is a surgical procedure that physically lifts the muscles of the forehead and skin while raising the eyebrows. This is an invasive procedure that is performed under general anesthesia and prolonged downtime. These procedures are all in the name of beauty for women and men by medical surgeons.
Botox Brow Lift is a non-surgical treatment and can have a similar effect on a suitable candidate. Strategic injections of Botox temporarily raise eyebrows. We selectively relax the corresponding muscles that lower the eyebrows, which in turn leads to muscle imbalance so that the muscles of the forehead can lift the eyebrows uncontrollably.
The other option is to use radiofrequency which stimulates your body to produce more collagen. Because this isn’t something that is put into the body, but instead is a product that your body produces in response to the radio frequency (RF) therapy, then your system doesn’t try and expel it. You get longer lasting skin tightening benefits which results in your forehead having fewer wrinkles, less sagging and overall the effect is one of a brow lift. All produced naturally.
Choosing Your Aesthetic Doctor
This is a specialised procedure and requires the skills and years of experience of an experienced aesthetic doctor to get it done correctly.
Choosing the right cosmetic doctor is one of the most important decisions you can make to ensure you’re happy with your results. Not everyone is a suitable candidate for treatment with Botox Brow Lift and the success rate is not 100%, even in the best hands. Understanding facial muscles is essential in this treatment, as well as accurately assessing the exact depth of the injection.
This is why at Essential Feeling, Romford, Essex, we prefer the use of a unique natural process — there’s not one toxin injected at the time. You can read about how this works, and why we think it is safer to get the same results. But, essentially, radiofrequency just gives your body the tools to turn back age naturally.
We use a machine that is the market leader. This is key to getting good, long lasting results for a moderate touch.
How does a brow lift work with Botox?
Some muscles lower the eyebrows and others raise the eyebrows. These muscle groups work against each other, resulting in the height and contour of the existing eyebrows. Frowns between the eyebrows (which causes the vertical lines colloquially known as “the 11s”) are depressants of the inner part of the eyebrows. If you frown and look in the mirror, you will see that the inner eyebrows move in and out.
A muscle called the orbicular oculi holds the lateral part of the eyebrows. It is a circular muscle that surrounds the eye and gives us crow’s feet when we smile.
By relaxing certain parts of that muscle that pulls down the arch and the outer corner of the forehead, the arch floats upwards. When we do Botox Browlift injections, they inject Botox into the muscles that pull the eyebrows down and this in turn allows the muscles that are pulling up to do their job without hindrance.
How does radiofrequency give you the same effect as a Botox brow lift?
We heat your skin with radiofrequency therapy to a temperature that is just enough for your body to think you are about the be injured. We stop heating just before that injury takes place, but just after your body has been triggered into sending the healing properties to the site. These healing properties are collagen and elastin.
And so with no injury to heal, they have no other job left to do, but tighten your skin. The result is a beautiful tighter brow and fewer frown lines. Without any risks to your facial movement and being completely natural.
The Potential Problem with Botox Brow Lift
As explained above, Botox® weakens eyebrow countersinks, which then allows brow lifters to do their job without having to work against this depression.
- What if you don’t have a strong lifting muscle (called the frontal)?
- What if your muscles aren’t very strong and your eyebrows can’t get up much, even if you’re not against it?
- Or what if the height of the eyebrows is so low and the eyebrows are so flat that the muscles of the elevation (frontalis) can’t work enough to get them to where you want them to be?
For this reason, not everyone is a suitable candidate for botox brow lift treatment. We recommend that you consult your aesthetic doctor before the face-to-face treatment. The success rate of this treatment is not at all 100%, and your aesthetic doctor will advise you whether you are likely to achieve the desired results. Adding more Botox doesn’t fix any of the above problems. And in this case, surgical eyebrow lift may be the most suitable option for you.
On the other hand, Radiofrequency is suitable for everyone with a few exceptions if you have skin conditions. And the effects are more natural looking wrinkle removal. With the benefit of no incisions nor pain.Ideal!
Why is Botox Brow Lift so popular?
The Botox Brow Lift in Essex and London, is one of the most popular treatments. At present, the popular shape of eyebrows is arched and raised. This gives patients a more relaxed and rejuvenated look.
It also helps to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids with a hood.
Am I a suitable candidate for brow lift with Botox?
Not everyone is a suitable candidate for Botox brow lift injections.
You need a personal consultation with your aesthetic doctor. During the consultation, they’ll examine the height and contour of your eyebrows and the amount of excess skin on the forehead and upper eyelids. Then they’ll decide whether they can position your injections in the correct place to lift your brow.
The success rate of botox brow lift treatment is not 100%.
This is because they rely on the selective and strategic relaxation of certain muscles and the compensation mechanisms of other opposing muscles to raise the eyebrows. In contrast, when you have radio frequency, then you naturally use the tightening of the skin, irrespective of your muscle structure.
Both options smooth your skin, it’s just that with RF therapy, it’s without the underlying severe risk of Botox.
As important as Botox placement is, it involves relying on facial muscles to respond to treatment. Brow lifts with Botox are an art and you should visit an expert.
If Botox isn’t injected incorrectly, it can drop or flatten the arch of the eyebrow and even cause the eyelid to fall rather than acting as a lifter.
What’s the aftercare once I’ve had a filler?
Following Botox your therapist will advise you on how to best look after yourself to maintain your youthful features. There are certain recognised ways.
We do the same following radiofrequency skin tightening. For instance, if you do some light exercise following your procedure, you’ll get your blood and lymphatic system working and this will improve your results. We will always advise you.
How much does the head-on lifting with Botox cost compared to radio frequency skin tightening?
As explained above, with Botox, it is important to weaken all the depressor muscles so that the lifting muscles can do their job without hindrance, elevating the brows.
For this reason, they recommend you use Botox in all three areas, namely forehead, frown and crow’s feet. Botox Brow Lift is an advanced and specialised treatment for which they charge something near £250. Many Botox professionals who lack the skills and experience offer this treatment for less money.
Radio frequency is all natural and only costs £65. For £120 you get a full hour’s session and then you can also include other areas of your face such as crow’s feet.
Now you can enjoy the benefits of a rejuvenated, more youthful appearance with the Botox Injection Brow Lift treatment or Radio frequency skin tightening. Your choice. Either way, it’s without the price and downtime of a surgical brow lift. After all who wants unnecessary plastic surgery?
