So, How Does it Work?
The truth is that as our age begins to advance, the skin is going to lose its softness, fullness, and elasticity. This is related to the changes that take place in our body and the significantly reduced Botox brow lifts aim to recover the loss of these substances by introducing them externally. This is going to help your muscles elevate the brow and allow it to work freely. The procedures are relatively harmless, and they require no anesthesia to be carried out. Nerve blocking injections can be used to numb the treated areas in order to make the procedure comfortable for the patient. You are likely to feel slight pain or pressure but in the majority of cases you will not feel anything at all because of the lidocaine which serves as an effective numbing agent.
Are there Different Types of Non Surgical Botox Brow Lift Procedures?
Two opposite types of muscle groups determine the position of your eyebrows. The first is going to pull them down while the second is going to lift them up. Hence, there are two types of non surgical brow lift procedures.
The first type is the usage of an anti-wrinkle injection. This is usually a substance that consists of a muscle relaxant toxin protein that is a natural and particularly purified protein that blocks the nerve impulses and temporarily relaxes the muscles. This is carried out on the muscles that pull your eyebrows in a downright direction.
The second type of non surgical Botox brow lift is through the usage of hyaluronic acid which is known to be responsible for the creation of volume under your skin. This is injected into the soft tissue that lifts the eyebrow in order to get it back to its natural and youthful position.
As you can see, there are quite a lot of things to be thoughtful about when it comes to non surgical Botox brow lifts. Using facial fillers is particularly effective, but it needs to be carried out with professionalism and by someone with experience.
