A Brow Lift is a nonsurgical treatment that subtly lifts your entire eyebrow. Treatment is designed to give the female brow a more defined arch with a lifted outer edge and the male brow a subtle straighter lift. It may even help to lift a saggy upper eyelid. The aim is to refresh the eye area and create a more wide-eyed appearance but not a surprised look.
For some patients Anti Wrinkle injections will be enough to lift a brow, whilst for others a combination of Anti Wrinkle injections and Dermal Fillers works better. Dr. Jodie will help you assess what treatment works best for you.
Anti Wrinkle injections are targeted to two areas, the frown and under the outer brow, depending on your gender and your individual needs. Relaxing the frown, which pulls the brow down is the most potent way to create Brow Lift for everyone. Treating the area under the outer brow is simply the finishing touch to the female brow, enhancing lift of the outer edge and better defining the arch. This is generally not desirable for the male brow, which typically appears straighter and sits lower than the female brow.
Dermal Filler can be an effective partner for Anti Wrinkle injections in creating a nonsurgical Brow Lift. With age, you tend to lose volume in both your forehead and brow from both bone and soft tissue changes. This causes your skin to sag and leads to a visible lowering of your brow. Dr. Jodie can use Dermal Filler injections to revolumise and contour the forehead and brow to create a natural lifted look.
What Is Involved With Brow Lift Treatments With Dr. Jodie In Melbourne?
Dr. Jodie believes a Brow Lift treatment should leave you looking like a fresher version of yourself. You should never appear startled or fake. Combined treatments involving Anti Wrinkle injections and Dermal Fillers can quickly become complex given the close proximity to your eye and should only be performed by an experienced cosmetic physician.
After assessing your face, Dr. Jodie will thoroughly clean the treatment area. To ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure, she will use ice to numb your brow prior to injecting. Using a fine needle, Dr. Jodie will administer Anti Wrinkle Muscle Relaxants in a series of injections into the bulk of your frown muscles. Not only will this smooth any existing frown lines, it will create the majority of the brow lift you desire. If you are particularly heavy in your upper outer lid and if a more arched brow is the intended result, Dr. Jodie will also administer Anti Wrinkle injections to just below your outer eyebrow to lift the outer tail. Remember, it takes two to seven days for Anti Wrinkle treatment to become apparent, so give it time before assessing your outcome. Fortunately, this procedure has no significant down time and you can get on with your day.
Dermal Filler treatment is more involved and is only entertained if Anti Wrinkle injections do not achieve the desired lift or if you have significant age-related volume loss in your forehead and brow. The procedure is potentially dangerous and should only be performed by an experienced clinical injector, like Dr. Jodie, with advanced skills and training. Again, after thoroughly cleaning and numbing the area, Dr. Jodie will administer Dermal Filler using a fine needle or micro-cannula (a fine blunt-ended instrument) to areas of volume loss in your forehead and your brow itself. She may even fill your temple area if this is also deficient, so your outer brow doesn’t disappear from view down the side of your face. You can expect some bruising and swelling but generally this is minimal and coverable. Although results are immediate, they are best judged at two to four weeks.
Tailored Brow Lift Treatments In Melbourne
Dr. Jodie will carefully assess your face to determine what individual factors are contributing to your flattened brow. By identifying your unique age-related changes, she can tailor your treatment to deliver the best possible result for you. This means assessing whether your brow position is mainly due to downward muscle pull or loss of soft tissue (mainly fat) or bone in your forehead or brow or both. Her bespoke treatment plan will include just the right amount of Anti Wrinkle treatment and Dermal Filler for your specific needs. There is never a ‘one size fits all’ approach and Dr. Jodie does not follow trends.
Natural Looking Brow Lift Treatments With Melbourne’s Go-To-Cosmetic Doctor
No one wants to look permanently surprised. An overly arched brow is not a sign of youth – one only needs to observe the nearest toddler to see that naturally our brows do not sit in a persistently elevated position. In fact, an overly arched brow can be ageing in the mature woman. Dr. Jodie has the skills and know-how to ensure the outcome of your treatment is refeshing and natural looking. It is possible to ‘open up the eyes’ without looking fake or startled.
Dr. Jodie also understands that men and women may desire different outcomes with respect to their Brow Lift treatments. While women tend to prefer a higher, more arched brow, men can appear feminised by this outcome. Dr. Jodie is experienced at delivering gender-sensitive treatments and will ensure that the male brow appears natural and sits flatter and lower than the female brow. Equally, she will also ensure that women do not leave with a Neanderthal looking brow from volume replacement with Dermal Filler treatment, which can masculinise a female face. Instead, women can feel reassured they will leave with a natural looking, defined arch that compliments the rest of their features. If the Kardashians have taught us anything, it’s the importance of a beautiful brow.
