Botox is a well-known treatment that makes patients look younger; however, a lesser known benefit of Botox injections is that you can look well-rested and energetic. Why is this important and how does Botox accomplish this? Keep reading to find out.
Botox Injections Make You Look Younger, Energetic, and Well-Rested
Drooping eyebrows and eyelids? Fine lines and crow’s feet around the eyes? All make us look older, less energetic, and tired. And while facial plastic surgery procedures can help, the cost and downtime is out of reach for many patients.
While most people think of Botox injections as a way to look younger, it’s also a way to look more energetic and well-rested. Why is this important? Job prospects, for starters, are affected by how energetic you appear to be. If your eyelids droop or you have lines under your eyes, it can make you look like you aren’t getting enough sleep. Drooping brows can give you a grumpy and tired appearance, making it seem like you’re not positive or happy about where you work.
The good news is that you can reclaim your facial expressions and look younger and less tired without plastic surgery.
Botox Injections to the Rescue
It’s well known that Botox injections are FDA-approved to smooth crow’s feet, forehead lines, and the 11’s (lines between the eyebrows). What you may not know is that Botox can also lift the eyebrows and lids for a non-surgical brow lift. By lifting a drooping brow line, you can look more awake, energetic, and youthful. A skilled, experienced aesthetic injector can provide such results with strategically placed Botox injections into the brow area.
We Call it the Botox Brow Lift
It’s a non-surgical brow lift by way of Botox injections; therefore, we call it the Botox brow lift. What confuses many patients is that Botox is a muscle relaxer. It’s true that if Botox injections are incorrectly placed by an inexperienced or poorly trained aesthetic injector, you may see drooping as a result. However, the goal isn’t to inject into a muscle that is already drooping. Rather, the goal is to relax the muscles of the area between the eyebrows (the glabella) that hold down the eyebrows. This allows the upper face to lift and look younger and more alert. Finally, by injecting into the outer brow area and around the crow’s feet, we relax a depressing muscle that pulls the outer portions of the eyebrow down. Once that muscle is relaxed, the outer eyebrow is more lifted.
Not Just Botox Injections
Botox isn’t the only injectable wrinkle relaxer that can accomplish brow lifting without surgery. Dysport and Xeomin can also be used to aid in brow lifting. Dysport, Xeomin, and Botox injections are all comprised of diluted botulinum toxin, the active ingredient responsible for muscle relaxation.
