Question: It sounds like most aging in the forehead is treated with Botox. In what cases would you need a brow lift instead?
Answer: Aging of the forehead is managed in a variety of ways depending upon what the issues are that are contributing to the appearance of an aging forehead. In cases where there are hyperdynamic lines of facial expression, such as in the area between your eyes and around your eyes, Botox and Dysport are the best choices. When properly injected, Botox and Dysport will soften these lines and prevent these lines from becoming more pronounced. Neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport will not decrease fine and deep lines in the skin of the forehead and in cases where the brow has fallen a considerable amount, surgery to elevate the eyebrow will be necessary to adequately rejuvenate the forehead.
