Is it possible to get an eyebrow lift without surgery?
Yes, it is possible to get an eyebrow lift without surgery. There are many reasons why one may want to do so. Some of them include:
You have fine lines around your eyes or wrinkles around your eyebrows due to aging and/or sun damage. You want a natural look with no makeup. You don’t like the way your eyebrows look straight from the mirror. You want to make your eyes appear bigger and wider.
The procedure is very simple and takes less than half an hour. A local anesthetic is injected into the area where you would like to have your eyebrows lifted. Then, a small piece of plastic called a “microkeratome” (also known as a micro-needle) is used to draw out the hairs around your eyes until they resemble those around someone’s nose.
There are two types of microkeratomes available: One type is designed to remove hair only around the upper eyelid. Another type removes all hair. Both types work well and can be purchased at most drug stores. The second type is preferred because it allows you to choose whether you want your eyebrows removed entirely or just some of them.
After the procedure, you will need to leave the hospital for several days so that your new eyebrows grow back naturally. Doing this will lessen the possibility of your being recognized when the procedure becomes more widespread in five to ten years.
As technology improves and as women demand a higher standard of beauty, it is only logical that we be allowed to have plastic surgery. Finally, thanks to this surgical procedure, we have the ability to look beautiful and glamorous just like men do.
Non Surgical Brows With Botox
Brow implants are made from human hair and can last up to five years. However, the procedure is quick and easy and should not bother you with uncomfortable and painful injections. While the cost of brow implants is a concern, it lasts for such a long time that it is well worth it in the long run especially since there is no upkeep or regular visits to the doctor.
Other things that can be injected into the forehead include Restalyne and Perlane. These can help add volume to the forehead area although they are different from each other. Restalyne is a gel that can be injected into the skin and Perlane is a filler that is used. Both are made from hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in the skin and are used to add volume to the skin and sharpen lines on the face.
Nonsurgical brow lift with Botox
The expert injector will be able to determine how much of these materials you need based on your facial structure. Both of these products can be effective and very easy to get. You will not need an appointment and they will most likely be able to perform it right then and there. All that is needed is a little maintenance on it later to keep your forehead looking sharp as the years go on.
The key to a great looking forehead regardless of age starts with nutrition. If you are deficient in certain nutrients, this can make your skin look dull and dry, thus leading to wrinkles and fine lines. It is recommended that you eat a balanced diet with enough iron, vitamin A, and protein to keep your skin looking great.
While nutrition is very important there are also many facial creams on the market that can help to combat common problems such as wrinkles, dark spots, and dry skin. Always make sure to read the labels on these products and look for the ones with the most natural ingredients in them since some of these creams can be harsh on your skin.
If you would rather not eat or apply anything to your skin, then there are always the invasive options that can give you a more permanent solution. There is a non-surgical brow lift that involves injecting your forehead with small amounts of Botox to give a youthful appearance. This is a relatively new procedure but seems to be working well for most people.
Also, there are brow implants that can make your eyebrows look fuller and more defined. These are small devices that are implanted directly above your eye to keep the eyebrow in its raised position. Of course there is also the traditional way of shaving or waxing your eyebrows and many women do this at home to give their forehead a sleeker look.
Whatever your preferences may be, there are a lot of options out there for brow lifts. The best thing that you can do is go online and search out before and after photos of patients who have had these procedures done. This will give you a better idea of what to expect if you were to pursue any of these options.
If you are looking for a solution to getting rid of your forehead wrinkles, then you will want to get a free consultation with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon in your area.
