Not only is your forehead exposed to the sun more than almost any other part of your body, but the skin also constantly stretches and moves when you make facial expressions. This can result in cosmetic problems such as fine lines, deep folds and sunken eyebrows. A brow lift is a popular treatment that can allow you to restore your youthful appearance by erasing these issues.
When Ointments and Creams Are No Longer Enough
It might be tempting to head down to your local market for anti-aging creams and ointments, but those products are rarely effective. In many cases, they do nothing more than temporary hydrate your skin with harsh chemicals and compounds. Products such as sunscreen can be used to slow the signs of aging, but there may come a point when a professional procedure is your only option for long-term changes. Also referred to as a forehead lift, a brow lift enhances a patient’s appearance by tightening and toning the skin between and above the eyebrows.
The Brow Lift Procedure
This is typically an outpatient procedure. At Facial Aesthetic Concepts, we prefer to do an endoscopic lift with the use of lasers. This makes the procedure much less invasive. The exact details of the procedure will depend on the wants and needs of the patient as well as their unique situation. However, a brow lift usually involves the repositioning of skin and the underlying soft tissue. Excess skin is often removed with the remaining skin pulled tight. A brow lift can be carried out by itself or in conjunction with other lifts and injectables. It all depends on your circumstances.
What is the Recovery?
There is no one-size-fits-all recovery process for this procedure. It depends on the work that was done and the patient’s personal health, amongst other things. During the first few days of recovery, patients should plan on resting as much as possible. Make sure to follow the instructions given to your regarding healing and you will be able to enjoy your results before you know it.
