What is a Chemical Brow Lift?
A lateral brow lift is a procedure that can be very effective for people with mild to moderate brow heaviness due to naturally-dropping eyelids or low-hanging eyebrows.
The brow lift literally raises the skin tissues surrounding the eyes and the eyebrows, so the the natural eyebrow arch is a few millimeters higher. It tends to leave the eyes looking wider and more youthful.
A lateral brow lift with Botox® (also known as 'chemical lift') offers a non-invasive alternative to surgery and it is an increasingly popular anti-ageing procedure for men and women.
Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) injections for a Chemical Brow Lift
The lateral brow lift works by using Botox® to selectively weaken some of the muscles surrounding your eye, thereby changing the dynamic balance among facial muscles pulling in different directions. Botox® is injected in two or three muscles that usually pull the brow down; by weakening these muscles, a lift in appearance is achieved. By selectively weakening part of the frontalis (brow) muscle, the lines across the forehead are also softenend.
Although a lateral brow lift can be achieved through cosmetic surgery, Botox® injections offer a safe, approved and non-invasive alternative.
Botox® is a temporary solution and its effects are fully reversible. Although its full benefit may not be seen for a couple of weeks after a treatment, the effects of Botox® typically last for about three to four months. Botox® injections are quick and convenient to administer and Bellissima offers some of the most competitive Botox® prices.
