Your face is usually the first part of your body to show signs of aging. Often, this manifests as drooping brows and deep lines and wrinkles across your forehead. This can cause insecurity and lead others to believe you are mean or chronically exhausted. At Paradise Med Spas of Texas in Lubbock, TX, we are proud to offer both a Botox brow lift and laser lift for our clients who are ready to look younger but not willing to undergo an invasive medical procedure.
What Is a Botox Brow Lift?
A Botox lift is a non-invasive anti-aging treatment that treats the frown lines between your eyebrows and the worry lines above your eyebrows caused by hyperactive muscles. More importantly, it raises your eyebrows to make you look more friendly, alert, interested and young.
This treatment is so effective because the active ingredient is Botulinum toxin A, a neurotoxin produced by a bacterium which blocks electrical signals sent from to the receptors in your nerve endings.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Brow raising with Botox is extremely straightforward. You can expect to be in and out in mere minutes. If you are worried about feeling the treatment being injected, you can have a topical anesthetic applied to the treatment site ahead of time. This can add between 15 and 60 minutes to your “treatment” time.
How Soon Will My Look and Life Change?
Your look and life will change very quickly after treatment. You will see dramatic results within the first seven days. However, the most dramatic results will not be realized until around a month after your treatment session.
How Should I Prepare for Treatment?
To prepare for your life-changing anti-aging treatment, stop taking blood-thinning medications, like aspirin, for two weeks before treatment. You may also want to take Tylenol a couple of hours before treatment if you don’t want an anesthetic but are a little worried about how it will feel.
How Long Do the Results Last?
A considerable difference between a brow, or forehead, lift and a Botox forehead lift is how long the results last. An endoscopic forehead lift usually lasts between five and seven years. A trans-coronal forehead lift may last around 10 years. A Botox forehead lift will only last around six months. You may start to notice the results diminishing three to four months after treatment.
How Do I Extend the Duration of Results?
There are several ways you can extend the duration of your results. The more regularly you come in for treatments, the more naturally relaxed your hyperactive forehead muscles become. With regular injections, you may find that you only need to come in once a year for maintenance treatments.
The healthier you are, the longer your results will last. It’s important to stay hydrated so your skin remains healthy and elastic. This means drinking water and eating water-rich foods while avoiding too much coffee, tea, and alcohol. You can also extend the duration of your results by including plenty of vitamin A, vitamin C and a collagen peptide supplement in your diet.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Unlike a traditional brow lift, which requires you to be in good health, stop smoking and pass a number of other tests, nearly everyone is a good candidate for a Botox lift. Males and females who are at least 18 years of age and are dismayed by the appearance of their eyebrows and forehead are usually excellent candidates for this treatment.
Who Isn’t a Good Candidate?
While a Botox forehead lift is right for nearly everyone, there are a few exceptions. For example, this treatment will not give you the results you desire if your drooping eyebrows and forehead wrinkles are not caused by hyperactive muscles. Moreover, this treatment is not recommended for women who are currently pregnant or nursing. The FDA has not studied the effects of the neurotoxin on fetuses and infants.
Can Other Treatments Complement a Botox Forehead Lift?
It’s rare for someone’s only cosmetic concern to be the appearance of their forehead and eyebrows. Luckily, we offer several other anti-aging treatments to help you achieve your ideal aesthetic. Many of our clients love to combine Botox with facial fillers to re-contour their cheeks, smooth the wrinkles and folds caused by volume loss, and tighten and lift the skin on the lower face.
Is a Laser Eyebrow Lift Right for Me?
Not everyone is comfortable with the idea of injections. That is why we also offer our clients a laser eyebrow lift to choose from. It usually takes around three to five treatment sessions, spaced around a month apart, to achieve the taut, lifted look.
Clients under the age of 35 can expect the results of this treatment to last around a year. Clients 35 or older can expect the results of treatment to last around six months once they initially achieve their desired aesthetic.
