A brow lift or eyelid surgery is often the first choice when considering rejuvenation of the upper third of the face. A brow lift works wonders in reducing furrows between the brows and smoothing out the forehead, while eyelid surgery eliminates hooding in the upper lids and puffiness in the lower lids. Yet what if you are unable to have surgery?
Fortunately, there are hyaluronic acid fillers and Botox! Anyone wanting to improve the appearance of the upper thirds of the face can benefit from the wrinkle-reducing ability of Botox or the volumizing effects of Restylane, Juvederm, or Perlane.
This popular injectable has become a household name across the globe. Botox injections inhibit muscle activity by blocking the release of acetylcholine, which is mainly responsible for signaling the brain to contract muscles. The more the forehead muscles contract (such as when you frown), the sooner the wrinkles will appear in the forehead area. Although results are temporary, lasting from three to six months, repeated treatments will maintain your results.
Hyaluronic acid fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps retain moisture and makes the skin supple and youthful-looking. The amount of hyaluronic acid in the body dwindles with age resulting in volume loss and the appearance of wrinkles.
This is where hyaluronic acid fillers enter the picture. Although their results are temporary like Botox, hyaluronic acid fillers can fill in spaces between skin tissues caused by age, sun exposure, and other environmental elements. Injecting hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm or Restylane into the periorbital area has been shown to significantly improve fullness in the upper lids.
