Droopy brows are a common concern for our patients seeking to improve the appearance of their eyes at Carolina Facial Plastics. During the aging process we lose collagen, facial fat, and the elastic component of our skin. These factors can cause our eyebrows to droop and increase the redundancy of skin above the eyes.This hooded appearance makes the eyes appear smaller and less bright creating a tired appearance. At Carolina Facial Plastics in Charlotte, I offer several treatment options for raising droopy brows.
Botox for Droopy Brows
One fairly simple way of restoring a youthful, lifted appearance to the brows is through the use of Botox injections. Botox is injected into the muscles that pull your eyebrows while keeping the muscles that pull the eyebrows up strong. This is a great option for patients that require a smaller lift. The results of Botox injections can last anywhere from 3-6 months and the procedure itself involves little to no pain or recovery time.
Dermal Fillers for Droopy Brows
Another non-invasive way to improve the appearance of droopy brows is through the use of dermal fillers, either alone or in conjunction with Botox. Facial fillers like Juvéderm, Restylane, and Perlane are hyaluronic acid gel fillers that add youthful volume to the face. The loss of fat in the face is one reason brows sag , therefore, facial fillers are effective in restoring volume that has been lost over time and giving the face a plump, youthful appearance. Depending on your unique case, I may recommend a combination of dermal fillers and Botox in order to achieve optimal results.
Surgical Brow Lift
For those patients looking for a more drastic result, a surgical brow lift may be a good option. Oftentimes, patients with extreme brow sagging feel they always look tired or angry and this can have a great impact on one’s self-confidence. Depending on your individual desires, I can perform one of four brow lift techniques to give you the younger, wide-awake appearance you’ve been dreaming of:
One-centimeter incision brow lift
Endoscopic brow lift
Direct brow lift
Coronal brow lift
During our initial consultation, I will discuss your case with you and create a treatment plan tailored to your unique desires.
