How do you know when you need a browlift instead of just Botox?
A brow lift is an excellent technique that provides long-term elevation of the brow and relaxation of forehead wrinkles. Elevation of the brow creates a much more youthful and alert countenance and the forehead muscles which chronically are contracting to elevate the brows before surgery can relax and this provides softening of forehead wrinkles. Botox injected cautiously beneath the brow laterally can elevate the brow a couple of millimeters, but this is not a long-term solution nor does it provide the degree of correction that a brow lift does.
