The last thing that anyone wants to have is a sagging brow. When you have a sagging brow, you look angry and upset all the time. This can cause other people to have the wrong impression about you. And it makes you look a lot older than what you really are. There are different options that are available to help individuals who are dealing with signs of aging on the face. Two of the most popular are BOTOX® and a brow lift. However, you may be wondering what the benefits are of each one and how you should decide which one is right for you.
BOTOX® is great for helping individuals who are dealing with dynamic wrinkles. In many cases, it can help individuals who have deep vertical and horizontal lines in their forehead to smooth out these lines. BOTOX® works by relaxing the muscles in the forehead that cause the deep lines. In most cases, it will leave the forehead looking smooth and soft.
The great thing about BOTOX® is that most individuals qualify for the treatment. You need to be in overall good health, particularly free of diseases or illnesses that affect your muscular and nervous systems. It is appropriate for both men and women. The treatments are extremely quick. If you like the way you look with a smoother, softer forehead, you are able to return to our office for touch-up treatments when you notice the dynamic wrinkles coming back.
A brow lift is a surgical procedure that is designed to get rid of excess skin that is hanging on the brows. This is a treatment that is appropriate for individuals who have a lot of excess skin. If you have a lot of excess skin as well as dynamic wrinkles in your forehead, BOTOX® is only going to soften the muscle contractions, but it is not going to do anything for the sagging skin. So, if you have a lot of hanging skin, a brow lift may be the right treatment for you. However, it all depends on the unique situation.
The best way to learn more about the differences between BOTOX® and a brow lift is to schedule a consultation at Smith Facial Plastics in Gahanna. In addition to learning more facts about these treatments, you will be able to meet with one of our cosmetic professionals, who will examine your forehead and help you make the best choice.
