A forehead lift is a surgical procedure to correct sagging of the forehead skin, eyebrows, and upper eyelids. It removes and/or changes the muscles and skin that create drooping, furrowing, and lines.
A forehead lift may be done alone or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a facelift or blepharoplasty (correction of the eyelids). The procedure is usually outpatient.
Often, the first signs of aging appear in the brow and forehead area. The skin begins to lose its elasticity causing frown lines, wrinkling across the forehead, and ab increasing heaviness of the eyebrows. Even people in their thirties may have faces that look older than their years.
Others may mistake your appearance as tired, angry, or sad when this is not how you actually feel. This may even impact personal relationships or your career.
Prominent forehead creases, brow furrows or eye lines (crow’s feet) can be brought about by specific facial expression muscles repeatedly creasing the skin. These can create an aged look. But Botox® can correct these issues quickly and effectively.
Botox is injected into the skin, the muscles are relaxed around the injected area, which temporarily reduces or eliminates previous skin creasing, giving a smoother skin appearance.
Ultherapy® is a relatively new procedure that is used to lift the skin of the neck, under the chin, and the eyebrows. Currently, it is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin. This non-surgical procedure uses the body’s own regenerative response for more natural-looking results.
