As the demand for cosmetic procedures continues to grow, more men and women are looking into brow lifts in Los Angeles. The procedure solves the tired, aging look of a low or sagging brow. A dermatologist can explain the procedure during a consultation, which is simply having Botox (or similar) injections at specific places around your brow areas to counteract the forehead sagging. Brow lifts in Los Angeles are similar to the process of injectable for wrinkles, folds and lines.
Due to aging, environmental damage and genetics, eyebrow arches flatten and lower over time. Wrinkles and sagging are a nuisance to your appearance. Not only does it contribute to making you look older or permanently upset or tired, it may affect your self-esteem. Wrinkles and sagging also wreck havoc on a youthful, radiant appearance. Thankfully, there are non-surgical procedures to improve appearance such as Botox brow lifts in Los Angeles.
WHY YOU GET WRINKLES, LINES, FOLDS AND SAGGING SKIN
Wrinkles, lines, folds and sagging skin are due to your repetitive facial expressions, such as smiling and laughing. Aging in and of itself, plus environmental factors such as smoking and sun damage, also contribute to your skin’s imperfections. All of these factors contribute to the loss of elasticity in your skin and decreased volume. Environmental and emotional reactions processed in the brain are expressed in movement of your body and face. Once your brain processes emotional and environmental reactions, it triggers nerve fibers to create motion or contraction in muscles. This is the process of your facial expressions and reactions to your emotions and what is going on around you. Since you do them so often, the creases which form on your skin eventually become permanent wrinkles, lines and folds. Additionally, your skin sags due to loss of elasticity. For the angry, tired look, it’s because the entire forehead is sagging. With the muscles sagging, your brows also fall slightly.
AGING’S EFFECTS ON THE BROWS
Your eyebrow arches lower over time with aging. The arches also flatten. Along with vertical and horizontal forehead wrinkles and lines, you may look angry or tired all the time. This effect is due to continuous facial expressions made by you contracting the surrounding muscles of this area. Since these muscles work up and down in opposition while making expressing, surrounding skin looses its elasticity. Therefore, your eyebrows and forehead are prone to sagging. Additionally, the constant movement of facial expressions is the same contributing factors to wrinkles and lines. If you have this concern with your appearance, brow lifts in Los Angeles provide a non-surgical solution.
USING BOTOX FOR BROW LIFTS IN LOS ANGELES
The FDA first approved Botox for additional cosmetic use in 2002. It is a botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) formulation. In the same family of BTX-A as Xeomin (IncobotulinumtoxinA) and Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA). Dysport was approved — approved in 2009 — and— approved in 2011.
All three formulations work to prevent and improve the appearance of your wrinkles. They inhibit acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter, so the formulations block the neurotransmission of contraction in certain muscles. Temporarily, these specific muscles are either weakened or paralyzed.
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin improve your appearance for an average of three to four months. However, in some cases they may work slightly longer, but it all just depends on your body’s reaction. Three to four months is the same time frame for brow lifts in Los Angeles. Many people are also now getting these injections in their late twenties and early thirties as a preventative measure against wrinkles. It can definitely help slow the process since specific areas of the face are not constantly creasing.
If you’ve ever had Botox to temporary counteract wrinkles, lines and folds, brow lift in Los Angeles will be a similar process. Botox works to counteracts the tired look by “lifting” the brows just a few millimeters, which makes a huge difference.
