As we age, time and gravity create many changes in our appearances. As time explored gravity does its work against loosened skin and muscles, pulling down any features of the face. Sagging and drooping are often the result of these changes, as the skins production of collagen slows and even stops. When this occurs, the skin is weak and inelastic and susceptible to the effects of gravity. When aging begins to affect the forehead and brow, the result can create many problems for prospective patients. These patients claim that a sunken brow causes them to appear tired and sad, sometimes even angry. Gravity can be reversed with specialized procedures like the forehead lift, which targets this common problem area.

For at least a decade, Botox Cosmetic has been making itself a household name by eliminating wrinkle after wrinkle. Approved by the FDA as an anti-aging wrinkle treatment, Botox works to temporarily paralyze the facial muscles responsible for causing the creases in the skin that result in wrinkles. Not only can this diminish the appearance of your existing wrinkles, it can also work as a preventative measure against the formation of new lines and wrinkles. Botox is an ideal treatment for the small muscle groups of the face, often providing results that last up to a year. Today’s facial plastic surgeons have refined their techniques to deliver Botox treatments for a wide range of uses.

What Is Botox?Technically speaking, Botox Cosmetic is the trade name of Botulinum Toxin Type A, which is a purified toxin produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. Botox is a type of injectable product known as a neurotoxin, which works to block nerve impulse transmissions wherever it is injected. In doing so, it prevents the muscles in that area from contracting and forming the creases or wrinkles you don’t want to have. Despite the scary classification as a toxin, Botox is FDA-approved to be used for treatments, provided it is administered in small doses.

The forehead lift is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the face by lifting the forehead and saggy eyebrows to improve upper eyelid heaviness for a more youthful and alert appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and between the eyebrows also can improve with this procedure. As the face ages, the muscle tone begins to weaken and the forces of gravity can cause brow hooding, lines, and wrinkles on the forehead and cause the eyelids to look heavy. These aging signs can cause a person to appear haggard and tired, but a forehead lift can uplift the forehead and reduce the appearance of these issues.
