The health and appearance of one’s skin is affected by many factors such as the natural aging process, genetic makeup, and harmful environmental stressors. The sun emits ultraviolet (UV) rays; the UVA rays will reach beneath the layers of the skin, cause DNA mutations and thus leave the skin damaged from within. The inevitable exposure to UVA rays combined with effects of aging will result in thinner and duller skin. Mature skin will start to develop fine lines due to the decreased ability to retain moisture as well as the eventual breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers.
Having a good skincare regimen that includes properly cleansing the skin and using enough sun protection is essential in maintaining the skin at its optimal condition. However, the onset of lines and wrinkles is unavoidable. Wrinkles develop due to the loss of collagen, causing fine lines to form. Those lines deepen with age and repeated facial muscle motions. The wrinkles that form around the eyes and the brows can give you a more haggard expression and potentially making you look older than your true age. Anti-aging topical treatments will help reduce their appearance, but will not erase them.
Getting a surgical brow lift is one way to deal with unwanted wrinkles in the area between the hairline and the brows; the surgeon will shift certain facial tissues upward to smooth out the deep furrows. A surgical brow lift is an effective but invasive procedure that requires downtime for recovery as well as anesthesia. A non-surgical alternative would be utilizing Botox to treat wrinkles around the eyes.
Botox is a prescription medicine that was first used as a method for improving hyperactive muscle ailments. Over the last decade it has become the gold standard in many non-surgical cosmetic treatments.
A brow lift with the help of applying Botox and other facial fillers into the target areas will soften the appearance of the wrinkles and folds, helping your skin look smoother and more refreshed. The results can last up to four months, but they can also vary, depending on the time it takes for your facial muscles to resume normal activity. A Botox Brow Lift is a non-invasive procedure with no downtime that can help to restore a more youthful appearance.
