The chemical brow lift is a procedure that uses neuromodulators such as Botox to create a more subtle but similar effect as a surgically invasive brow lift. Instead of reconstructing the brow region, this procedure relies on chemicals to reshape and reform the face into a more youthful appearance. This is a considerably less invasive and less costly procedure than surgical brow lifts.
About the Procedure
A chemical brow lift is a non-invasive procedure used to create a more refreshed, youthful appearance in the upper third of the face. Unlike the direct brow lift, the chemical brow lift does not require incisions but instead utilizes chemicals to achieve a similar, but less dramatic effect. The procedure ranges in cost from $800-$4000. Placement of the injections will be determined by the desired effect for the patient. To elevate the lateral brow, the outer corner of the eye muscle may be weakened with the use of Botox injections, positioned in 1 or 2 different points under the skin. In most instances, the optimal location for injection is determined visually by asking the patient to frown aggressively. This allows the doctor to determine the maximum point of brow contraction. To elevate the middle of the forehead, facial muscles directly above and between the eyebrows will be targeted. Elevation is usually done with 16-24 units of Botox. Treatment of both the forehead and temporal areas will help to eliminate wrinkles while still achieving the desired change in brow height or shape.
