The signs of facial aging usually start on your brow and forehead. As you age, your skin looses its elasticity, causing the loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone that can cause the skin on your forehead and eyebrows to sag and wrinkle. Stress and overactive facial expression muscles can exacerbate the problem. Wind and sun exposure may also causes damage. This results in wrinkling across the forehead with heavy, drooping eyelids, causing you to look sad, tired, or even angry. A forehead lift, also known as a brow lift, can correct this problem and revitalize the youthfulness to your face.
A quick in office procedure can help to improve your eyebrow shape. The procedure is done awake and in the office with small incisions hidden near your hairline. Results are seen in a few weeks as the swelling and bruising subsides.
Dr. Shapiro has pioneered and developed a procedures called “The Silhouette Brow Lift” as an alternative to a surgical browlift. Two sutures are placed under the hairline and brought out through the eyebrows. These can then be tightened to the exact tension needed to achieve the desired look. The advantage to this is that the sutures can be retightened years after the initial procedure to maintain your lift.
A Brow Lift Procedure Can:
- Lift sagging or furrowed brows
- Improve the appearance of a wrinkled forehead
- Decrease frown lines, or lines between the eyebrows
- Elevate brows and skin above the eye that has lowered over time
- Enhance aged, angry, or serious facial expression lines in the brow/forehead area
