Choosing a brow lift or BOTOX

A brow lift or BOTOX in Charlotte NC
If you’re trying to decide what’s the best way to look younger, an experienced Charlotte facial plastic surgeon can tell you if you need a brow lift or BOTOX. Everything will depend on how deep and extensive your wrinkles are, and what kind they are.

BOTOX is much quicker and easier — it’s known as the “lunchtime procedure” because of how quickly you’re in and out of the medical facility. It clears up dynamic wrinkles produced by continuous use of the facial muscles, especially laugh lines and frown lines. It lasts for about six months, and you can get a second one after the first one wears off. That said, it should be used with skill and care to avoid an unnatural appearance.

If your brow is sagging, or if it has horizontal creases or particularly large frown lines, you may need a brow lift. These days, facial plastic surgeons don’t just cut out a slice of skin and lift everything straight up. Instead, they lift the brow carefully up and to the sides, reversing the usual aging pattern in which the skin gradually moves down and to the center. If a brow lift is overdone, you end up with a permanently shocked look. This doesn’t happen very often, but just to be on the safe side, you should look for a highly experienced facial plastic surgeon.
