The signs of aging may first develop around the eyes. Fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and other concerns may begin to occur as early as the late twenties, gradually becoming more obvious as the skin is affected by the aging process. In time, the eyebrows may seem to be pulling downward, causing the eyes to look heavy and tired.
Bright, open eyes are associated with youthfulness and beauty. Men and women whose lids are drooping beneath a lowered brow and forehead may be perceived as older than they are, and may even come off as unfriendly simply based on their appearance. Dr. Schiller is a highly specialized physician whom New York and New Jersey residents turn to for eyelid surgery and other facial rejuvenating procedures. Some of them are able to achieve younger looking eyes with BOTOX®.
In some situations where the skin and brow are sagging a great deal, surgically lifting the brow is necessary. However, BOTOX® is suitable in a number if cases where the brow and forehead are sagging more subtly.
What Happens on the Upper Face?
Changes to facial shape and contouring occur year after year as collagen fibers weaken and fray beneath the skin. The resulting laxity can cause immense dissatisfaction and self-consciousness. On the upper face, the loss of structural support often results in a downward pull on the brow and forehead, originating in the muscles between the eyes. Muscles located near the temples, as well, play a part in the overall downward slide of the upper face.
Why BOTOX® Works for a Heavy Brow
The signs of aging that occur on the upper areas of the face are often caused by muscular contraction. Years of frowning while staring at a computer screen or trying to read small print take a toll at some point because frequently used muscles remain tensed even when the face is resting. BOTOX® and other neuromodulators like Dysport®, Xeomin® gently relax tightened muscles on the face, allowing them to become nicely relaxed. As the muscles release their chronic tension, the overlying skin becomes smoother and more youthful.
When the muscles responsible for the downward pull of the brow are injected with one of these products, tension is released and the brow can once again display a nice, high arch. Treatment that takes only a few minutes can achieve months of renewed beauty.
