Sagging brows can cause all sorts of aesthetic concerns, from eyes that appear smaller to a constant expression that lacks joy. For several years, the go-to treatment for this has been a BOTOX® brow lift.
However, younger patients are starting to bypass this med spa treatment for a surgical brow lift.
The BOTOX Brow Lift
Many people assume that sagging brows are due to loose skin, meaning the only viable solution is surgery. However, for many people, brows sag because contracted muscles pull them down. Despite common wisdom, you can’t just turn that frown upside down or smile your way out of this — these muscle contractions are almost always involuntary.
By injecting BOTOX into these muscles, they relax and stop pulling the brows downward. As an added benefit, it can smooth out wrinkles and prevent new ones from developing. If your sagging brows are due to contracted muscles rather than loose skin, BOTOX can help.
The Surgical Brow Lift
With a surgical brow lift, the tissues of the forehead are lifted and tightened through small incisions. The results are long-lasting, and the procedure can be combined with other surgeries for a complete makeover.
Why Millennials Are Leaning Towards Surgery
When comparing a brow lift vs. BOTOX, you have to consider the impact and longevity of the procedures. For aging Millennials, the days for temporary solutions are coming to an end. They want treatments that last and have a significant impact. For this, BOTOX just cannot match surgery.
