Sir Isaac Newton proved it when that infamous apple fell from the tree and onto his head: Gravity is responsible for making things fall. Unfortunately, this also applies to several aspects of our face, including the brow. When the brow begins to grow heavy and the upper eyelid starts to droop, it can create all sorts of aesthetic and functional issues:
You look angry, when you’re not.
You look tired, when you’re not.
Your eyelids feel heavy and uncomfortable.
Your vision is impeded.
While a surgical brow lift may be necessary for significantly heavy brows and drooping eyelids, thankfully, there is a non-surgical solution. It’s called the Botox brow lift. Dr. Davis was recently interviewed on CBS Philly for giving Flyer’s legend Bernie Parent’s eyebrows a non-surgical lift with Botox. His complaint? Drooping eyelid skin was affecting his vision. He got enough of a lift with Botox to improve his eyesight and make him a very happy patient.
Here’s how the Botox brow lift works:
We know that Botox paralyzes muscles. There are muscles in the brow area that pull the eyebrows up (elevators) and pull the eyebrows down (depressors). These muscles can affect brow position. By strategically injecting the depressors (the ones that pull the brow down), you can create a lift of a few millimeters, which is enough to make a noticeable difference and make the eyes appear wider and hence more youthful and alert.
