Is the skin near your eyes sagging? Are your eyebrows drooping? Are wrinkles stretching along your forehead? If any of these are applicable, then you may have considered a BOTOX injection. However, we may have another treatment in mind–a forehead lift.
How Does a Forehead Lift Work?
There are two types of forehead lift procedures. Both are invasive. With the coronal brow lift, the plastic surgeon makes an incision that cuts across from one ear, along your forehead, to the other ear. Your forehead and brows are raised, and excess skin is removed. With the endoscopic brow lift, the surgeon inserts a camera into tiny incisions made within the hairline of your forehead and lifts your brows and forehead using advanced technology.
How Does a BOTOX Injection Work?
During a BOTOX injection procedure, the licensed plastic surgeon injects FDA-approved botulinum toxin into a specific area of the body, such as your forehead. The botulinum toxin interacts with the brain’s signals that tell your muscles to contract, blocking this signal. When the toxin is injected into a particular area, the muscles in that area become relaxed and contract less.
How Is a Forehead Lift Different From BOTOX?
A forehead lift minimizes or removes the creases between your eyebrows and on your forehead. However, it also does much more than address wrinkled skin. A forehead lift repairs skin that has started to droop and sag due to loss of elasticity and collagen. The surgeon cuts away the sagging skin and creates more muscular support to ensure your skin is firm and more youthful.
BOTOX, on the other hand, cannot lift your skin. In terms of cosmetic purposes, it can only erase fine lines and wrinkles. In other words, BOTOX is not the ideal remedy if your brow area is sagging.
Why Should I Get a Forehead Lift?
You should get a forehead lift if you want to raise your brow area, increase the muscular support around your brow and forehead areas, and reduce frown lines. A forehead lift is also a good idea when the upper part of your face needs repositioning. Moreover, you should get a forehead lift when you want to look younger.
