Choosing a liquid brow lift using Botox® or Xeomin® will help you achieve an improved appearance by lifting your eyebrows and treating frown lines between your brows in just the right spot. These injections work by relaxing underlying muscles to smooth your skin on the outside and relaxing muscles between the brows that relaxes the muscles that typically pull your eyebrows down. It’s Hollywood’s best kept secret.
If you want improved facial aesthetics, a Xeomin® or Botox® brow lift might be for you. This is a trend that is becoming more and more popular because it only takes about 10 minutes to do and is noninvasive and nonsurgical. Your first question might be, “What is Botox® and Xeomin®?” Here at Metro Smiles, we can help educate you on different types of neurotoxins. We prefer to use Xeomin®, our FDA-approved neuromodulator of choice, to a few areas on your forehead to rejuvenate your face. The neuromodulator relaxes the muscles that pull the brows down. This will cause a physical lift of the brows for as long as the neuromodulator remains active, usually for three to six months.
You might also wonder, “What does Botox® do?” With the Botox® brow lift, we will strategically place a neurotoxin in the muscles that are used to push your eyebrows down. This causes the eyebrows to lift while the neuromodulator is active. This is not a permanent procedure, but you can expect results to last about three to six months. Now you know, “How long does Xeomin® last?”
What Is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is a neuromodulator unique in its precision manufacturing process that isolates the therapeutic component of the molecule and removes the unnecessary proteins that don’t play any role in treatment. It’s a purified choice for frown lines. Using this for a brow lift procedure will improve both the shape and the position of your eyebrows and forehead. The corrugators (known as 11’s) are muscles that cause vertical lines between your eyebrows because they are depressors of the inner part of the eyebrows. If you make an angry face, you can see the brow going down on the inside. But when you relax your muscles, the front half of the eyebrow will be lifted.
That leaves the outer portion of your eyebrow up to the lateral depressor/orbicularis oris. This is a circular muscle around the eye. It can also causes crow’s feet when you smile. However, Xeomin® results are achieved to lift the brow by using the neuromodulator to relax parts of the muscles which pull down the arch and outer corner of the brow, letting the arch go up. Xeomin® for wrinkles is an effective treatment for many areas on the face and neck.
Why Are Botox® Brow Lifts Popular?
There’s definitely an increased demand because of celebrities who choose to use treatments like Botox®. In addition, Instagram filters and Photoshop apps both raise the arches and smooth the skin because this is a more desirable look. Patients are now asking Dr. Robin what they can do raise their eyebrows and open up their eyes more in daily life and many are loving the Botox® brow lift.
Pros and Cons of Botox®
One of the benefits of Botox® is that mostly everyone is a candidate. You might be wondering, “How long does Botox® last?” An important aspect to keep in mind is that using a neuromodulator is not permanent. If you decide you love it and the procedure is right for you, it’s one of the best cosmetic procedures because it only takes a few minutes to do and the results are within days.The procedure doesn’t result in any downtime (though there may be some initial redness or small bumps at the injection sites temporarily.) And, if you try it and don’t like it, just don’t do it again.
Botox® Brow Lifts are an art, and you need to seek out an expert with an eye for symmetry and aesthetics. If the neuromodulator is placed incorrectly, it can flatten the brow arch and could even lead to a droopy eyelid. You will want to seek out a qualified injector who has been properly trained in head and neck anatomy just as Dr. Robin has. Our boutique-style office is located in Greenwood Village. We also serve Denver, Denver Tech Center, Englewood, Cherry Hills, Centennial, and beyond. Contact us today for your next treatment.
