Many patients find that as they age, the brow area loses its natural curve and begins to droop further down the face. In our youth, the connective tissues within the skin are strong, providing plenty of structure and support in the skin. This is because the body is producing plenty of collagen and elastin proteins, which repair the skin from damage and keep it healthy. As we get older, the levels of these proteins in the skin deplete, which in turn, weakens the connective tissue and results in the drooping of certain areas, and our brows are particularly brown. When the brow area begins to droop, it can make us look tired, close the eye area, and age the face significantly.

What does the treatment do?
Botox®️ is a muscle-relaxing injectable treatment largely known for its anti-wrinkle capabilities, but what many patients may not realise is how effective it can be at lifting the brows and delivering a fresher, more youthful look. Botox®️ works by paralysing the muscles surrounding the eyes, preventing them from contracting and providing a lift to the overlying skin, providing subtle elevation to the eyebrows for natural rejuvenation of the area.
Dr Hiba Injibar, consultant dermatologist here at Dermasurge, is a highly skilled aesthetic practitioner with exceptional talent in advanced aesthetic procedures, such as non-surgical brow lift in London using anti-wrinkle injections. Prior to all treatments, patients will undergo an in-depth consultation, allowing Dr Injibar to examine the skin as well as gain a unique insight into the expectations of the patient so that she may tailor her treatments to their individual needs.
At Dermasurge, all treatments require an in-depth consultation and a thorough examination with Dr Injibar. This allows her to fully assess the structure of the face, so that she may craft the perfect look that seamlessly enhances your natural beauty and restores balance to the appearance. In addition, the consultation process gives patients the opportunity to discuss their desires and goals, so that Dr Injibar may tailor her approach to suit their needs.

At the site of injection, patients may experience redness, swelling, and bruising. However, this should not last longer than a week. In addition, headaches, soreness, and numbness may be present during this time. Persistent or more serious side effects should be examined by a medical professional.
