Can Los Angeles area patients use Botox as an alternative to a surgical brow lift?
Botox has been around for several years and has been approved by the FDA for a variety of medical and cosmetic situations. It is commonly known for addressing fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face that may have developed due to facial contractions. The muscles of the face, over time, can cause the skin to develop imperfections that are impossible to reverse naturally. This is when cosmetic injectables such as Botox become a favorable way to enhance one’s appearance.
The beauty of Botox
Botox is a neuromodulator used in reducing muscle contractions. When Botox is injected into the muscles of the face, patients notice a temporary reduction in the appearance of lines on the forehead, the “elevens” between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet around the eyes. The effects from Botox brow lift injection in Beverly Hills last approximately six months and patients need reinjection to maintain results; however, it is an affordable and appropriate solution for patients with the early signs of aging who are not ready for plastic surgery.
Patients asked: “Will Botox replace the need for a surgical brow lift?”
It can be used to reduce forehead folds, which provides similar results to a brow lift. Unfortunately, Botox is only best in situations such as this when patients are dealing with mild to moderate forehead wrinkles. Significant concerns may be better suited for plastic surgery instead. Determining which is most appropriate requires an assessment by our team to decide which would be the best method of addressing forehead folds and overall skin laxity issues in the facial area.
