Filler injections can help patients who seek to reshape and lift their brows. As we age our skin loses its elasticity. We loose our brow fat pad and the tissues deflate reducing the brow area height causing wrinkles.
Unlike back in the day when people had to go through surgeries, it is now possible to re-inflate the brow fat pad and lift the slack in the skin of the upper lids by strategically injecting dermal fillers in this region. Dermal fillers relax the muscles around the eye and give an overall lift to the eyebrows.
Fillers add volume beneath drooping brows. There are other improvements such as softening the bony rim around the eyebrows, diminish the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin, thereby creating a more youthful appearance. Acid based fillers such as Hyaluronic are used to replace lost volume due to aging and will also improve the elasticity and strength.
Depending on your age and muscles, the lift you get from the fillers will vary.
Consult Dr. Shelton to discuss what kind of eyebrow improvement you have in mind; if it is the outer brow or the inner brow which needs to be lifted or if you are looking for a more natural appearance. During the consultation Dr Shelton will also explain important facts such as risks concerning fillers.
Dr. Shelton will also take time to examine the face, the shape of your eyebrows, if they are drooping or asymmetry before recommending any fillers. He will observe if the forehead needs a filling and how much projection is lost due to aging.
Other areas which can be improved by dermal fillers:
- Eye bags beneath the eyes
- Hollowness in the cheeks
- Frown lines in the forehead
- Crow’s feet between the eyes and temples
- Smile lines or laugh lines beside the nose and mouth
- Marionette lines beside the mouth and chin
