In addition, the eyebrows tend to lose their arch, becoming more horizontal. A chemical brow lift with injectables can recreate a more arched, youthful brow, producing similar results to a traditional brow lift but without the surgery.
How injections work to elevate a sagging brow:
When we are younger, the brow elevators are more prominent and the face appears constantly elevated. As we age, the dynamics change and the depressors take over and combined with gravity, a gradual sagging of our brow area takes place. If we can keep the dynamics between elevators and depressors neutral with strategically placed injections every 4 to 6 months, then the sagging that occurs with ageing will be reduced.
Multiple clinical studies have shown that after correctly placed injections, a modest elevation occurs in the range of 1 to 3mm which, in the face, can make a real observable difference. Once the treatment "kicks" in 10-14 days later, the face takes on a relaxed and refreshed look and one's face appears to glow. This result is very dependent on the experience of the injector and incorrectly placed injections can actually cause the brow to droop even further.
At Skin Renewal, there are numerous non-surgical options to treat a sagging brow which include the following treatment options:
For patients apprehensive about the effects of injectables, there are new technologies available such as:
- Monopolar RF (Titania, Lavatron, Exilis Elite)
- ND:Yag Skin Tightening
- RF Needling with Secret RF
- RF Needling with Endymed Intensif
These technologies improve the quantity of collagen in the treated area, and remodelling of collagen down the line causes a brow lift. In addition, skin tightening devices such as Titan and ND:Yag heat the deep dermal collagen fibrils, causing them to shrink, lifting the brow 1 to 3mm over time.
