What Is Botox And How Does It Work Within A Brow Lift?

The Brow Lift
To give the effect of a brow lift, injected botox aroused in very specific areas of the upper face. Namely, the muscles just beneath the brow bone which usually work to pull the eyebrows in a downward motion. By weakening/paralyzing these muscles, it prevents them from drooping downwards on this area around the eyes. Therefore, following your lift, you’ll start to notice that the corners of your eyebrows appear more lifted than before and no longer have the opportunity to curve downward. This comes naturally with aging and is usually what we’re trying to target when opting for a brow lift with more youthful-looking results.
