We’ve discussed in this blog how to create a very natural brow lift by using Botox Cosmetic to target key depressor (pulling down) muscle groups that pull the brows and eyes down and downward.
Although this is a very rewarding and minimally invasive procedure, it does not address a lack of volume or support in the brow area. Often, women will observe that the brow bone does not have as much prominence as it used to. Other patients may not have had this feature to begin with. It is also common to have some asymmetry wherein one eye brow may be lower than the other. Using a small amount of cosmetic dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane it is possible to add shape and definition to the eye brow area. Treating the temples with injectable dermal fillers can also compliment this treatment.
Because the eyes are our most important facial feature, it is important to focus on the frame of the eyes as well. This concept is incorporated into what is known as “shaping the face” with Botox and cosmetic dermal fillers.
