You feel young and energetic — but your forehead lines are telling a different story. This is a common complaint amongst the 30+ crowd, especially those who are highly expressive. But don’t let horizontal lines get you down; when it comes to treating forehead wrinkles, you have options.
Two of the best? Brow lifts and BOTOX®. You just need to decide which is right for you. Brow lifts and BOTOX can both help your forehead wrinkles and other concerns, just in slightly different ways.
What Is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift is a surgical procedure that pulls the skin of the forehead to tighten it, eliminating horizontal facial wrinkles while also lifting the eyebrows higher. Done correctly, this helps the brows appear less heavy while reducing or eliminating signs of aging in the forehead and around the eyes.
What Is a BOTOX Brow Lift?
A BOTOX brow lift consists of injections directly into the muscles that furrow the brow while also releasing the upper forehead muscles, allowing them to pull up the eyebrows more. The overall effect is similar to that of an actual brow lift, though in most cases it is more subtle. It is also temporary, lasting only as long as it takes for our body to metabolize the BOTOX and let the muscles return to normal function.
Brow Lift or BOTOX: Which Is Best?
Determining which treatment you need is about your existing anatomy along with your cosmetic goals. If you want or feel like you need more dramatic and lasting results, a surgical brow lift is the way to go. If you want something more subtle or you just want a temporary solution to see how things look, a BOTOX brow lift might be perfect for you.
