The eyebrows frame the face, and a well defined, high arched eyebrow can give the overall effect of an uplifted and youthful facial aesthetic while a low brow, or one that has lost its natural arch and is sagging due to ageing processes, gravity, and skin changes, can age the face. There are a range of non-surgical options available to improve the appearance of the brow which are all minimally invasive and come with little to no downtime.
At Revivify London, we can look carefully at how we can improve your natural eyebrow shape to a more youthful or well balanced aesthetic through the use of Botulinum Toxin A injections (BOTOX), Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers, Silhouette Soft threads, or a combination of treatments. Brow reshaping to a desired outcome is considered an advanced aesthetic technique which requires precision and detailed knowledge of anatomy; Dr Samizadeh, clinical director of Revivify London and advanced aesthetic technique mentor, is able to offer this expert treatment tailored to your desired effect.
Botulinum Toxin A injections
Muscle relaxing, wrinkle reduction injections such as BOTOX can be a quick method of raising or reshaping the brow in a procedure that takes under 30 minutes and has a lasting effect of around 3 months. Facial muscles above and below the brow contract and determine the position of the brow and some muscles below the brow contract which has a brow lowering effect.
Depending on your desired brow shape, diligently placed Botulinum Toxin A injections can relax the required muscle that may be lowering the brow, and as a consequence alter the overall aesthetic of the brow. For example, Botulinum Toxin A may be injected in certain areas near the ends of the eyebrows to lift this area for a more winged, lifted appearence. In some cases, surgical options or combination treatments utilising hyaluronic acid based fillers may be recommended.
Silhouette Soft thread lift
Silhouette soft® is a fully absorbable suture and cone technology, originally developed in the USA from SilhouetteLift® permanent suture and cones used in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Carefully placed sutures, or threads work by repositioning the tissue and volumes of the various areas of the face affected in the ageing process such as the lower jaw and jowls, sagging eyebrows, and cheeks affected by loss of volume and sagging. Silhouette soft also has a regenerative effect, by initiating increased collagen production. The procedure takes under an hour, and local anesthetic is used. As there are no surgical incisions, general anesthetic and the procedure comes with minimal downtime, it means this can be the perfect treatment for those who wish to avoid a surgical brow lift.
Hyaluronic acid based fillers
Hyaluronic acid based fillers can work well in combination with Botulinum toxin A injections and can replump tissue and sagging skin as well as shaping the brow. This treatment can reinforce and support the skin’s integrity and give a more youthful and plump appearence. The injections typically last between 6-12 months and contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, meaning minimal discomfort is experienced on injection.
