What is a Liquid Brow Lift?
Have you been trying to brighten your eyes above the mask you are wearing during the pandemic? Don’t worry, there are quite a few options for lifting those eyebrows and refreshing your look, including a Liquid Brow Lift. If you find yourself bothered by:
- Sagging, tired-looking eyes
- Eyeliner smudges onto top eyelids
- Eyeshadow practically invisible when eyes are open
- Eyebrows that hang down, and literally feel heavy on the upper eyelids
- Heavy brows after forehead Botox
Then read on to learn more about the Liquid Brow Lift, a minimally invasive Botox injection technique to lift up sagging eyebrows.
How do you do a Liquid Brow Lift?
A Liquid Brow Lift is done with Botulinum toxin (e.g. Botox, Jeuveau aka #NEWTOX, Dysport, Xeomin). Botox is so versatile. Yes Botox works great to get rid of wrinkles that cause the crow’s feet, the “eleven lines” between the eyebrows, and forehead wrinkles. There are so many other things expert injectors can do, too!
Botox injected as a Liquid Brow lift is a specialized technique used by expert injectors to lift the eyebrow with Botox. This gives you a naturally refreshed look by opening the eye space more. We use our knowledge of facial anatomy and intentionally weaken the facial muscles responsible for lowering the eyebrows.
How do I know if I need a Liquid Brow Lift?
For severe hooded lids, heavy brows, extra upper eyelid skin and that constant tired ‘look,’ traditional plastic surgery (Browlift with Upper Eyelid Lift) is often the answer. But, there is an alternative that works great for people with mild to moderate sagging brows. That is the Liquid Brow Lift, sometimes referred to as a Botox Brow Lift or Nonsurgical Brow Lift.
If you feel like there is less space between your eyelashes and your eyebrows, this procedure could be right for you. Are bothered by sagging eyebrows? Perhaps you lift your eyebrows every time you take a selfie. If this is the case, you might be a good candidate for a Liquid Brow Lift. Deep forehead wrinkles every time you lift your eyebrows mean that your forehead muscles (your frontalis muscles) are working hard throughout the day. If you have forehead wrinkles or low eyebrows, then this approach could help.
Where should I go for a Liquid Brow Lift?
Now, let’s say you go to a med spa, where a different person injects you with Botox every time you go. Guess what happens. Your forehead muscles won’t wrinkle anymore. But then what about your eyebrows? They will feel heavy and can droop from the unbalanced Botox in your forehead. This is what people call “Bad Botox.” In these cases, the Botox in your forehead is actually working just fine. It is all in the technique.
Your injector needs to appreciate the full picture. An expert injector will look at the surrounding parts of your face, and will suggest treating nearby areas with good reason! She is maintaining harmony. Specifically, a simultaneous Liquid Brow Lift Botox injection would lift the eyebrows at the same time as your Botox treatment for forehead wrinkles.
Now that is exactly why, at Tannan Plastic Surgery, we recommend you see an expert injector. This is your face, after all. And right now, this is the only part of your face visible to most people above the mask! An expert injector knows how to balance treating your forehead wrinkles with maintaining a youthful brow shape and lift. Our expert nurse injector has been doing Liquid Brow Lifts for years to lift up the brows and balance the Botox that she injects in their foreheads. She works hand in hand with Dr. Tannan to provide the best care to our patients.
How long does a Liquid Brow Lift last?
A Liquid Brow Lift, like other specialized Botox injection techniques, is not permanent. Nothing is, not even surgery! With a Liquid Brow Lift, you can expect to enjoy lifted brows for about two months. Botox wears off faster here compared to other parts of the face. This is because we intentionally do not put too much. Why? Too much Botox in a Liquid Brow Lift can give you a “Spock” like look. So again, it is all about balance. That is why you should only trust expert injectors to do your Botox.
Botox can take anywhere from five days to two weeks to work, and the same goes for a Liquid Brow Lift. It can take up to two weeks to see if you have enough lift. If not, we can always add more! We believe your relationship with your expert injector should be consistent, to allow for the best possible result.
Now, a surgical Brow Lift can last for up to 7 or 10 years. But a surgical Brow Lift involves small scars, surgical and anesthesia risks, plus all the recovery time you need to take off. When you take the time to see the best plastic surgeon for you – a board certified female plastic surgeon who can relate to you – you will learn about all the options to treat sagging brows.
