As we age, we lose bone, facial volume, collagen, elastin and fat. As a result, the structure of the face changes over time, and our skin begins to sag due to gravity. Did you know that the skin surrounding your eyes is extremely delicate? This is because the epidermis there is four times thinner than the rest of your face. It also has a scarcity of support fibers–collagen and elastin. With age, the skin becomes more and more delicate and loses elasticity. As a result, the skin above the eyes sags and hangs over the eyes, making your eyes look droopy. While droopy eyes are a normal part of the aging process, in severe cases, the drooping eyelid can cover all or part of your pupil and interfere with vision.
While aging is one of the most prominent causes of drooping eyelids, genetics can also play a role in some cases. Slackening of eye muscles could also make your eyelids droopy. External factors such as sun exposure, tobacco use, pollution, makeup and hormonal imbalance can also lead to droopy eyes.
Droopy eyes can add years to your face. Do you want to enhance your appearance and fix droopy eyes without going under the knife?We have got you covered! Surgical procedures are often recommended to tighten the muscles that lift the upper eyelid and correct droopy eyelids. But did you know that a Botox brow lift gives a similar effect without having to undergo invasive surgery? But what is a Botox brow lift? It is a simple, low-risk procedure with minimal downtime, used to lift droopy eyes and brows.
During the procedure, botulinum toxin type A is injected into the surrounding areas to fix droopy eyes. Botox brow lift works by relaxing the underlying muscles that smooth the skin on the outside and the muscles between the brows. This allows the forehead muscles to pull up on the now-relaxed muscles between the brows, raising the brows and opening the eyes.
Since it takes time for the botulinum toxin to react with your body, the results aren't visible immediately. A Botox brow lift is a super quick procedure and you can start seeing results within a week.However, you can see significant results after nearly one month following the initial injections. Another plus point of this treatment? A Botox brow lift isa non-surgical procedure that requires minimal downtime. You can return to your daily routine immediately after the procedure.
A Botox brow lift is an excellent treatment for droopy eyes, but it is not a permanent solution. Botox injections, on average, last three to four months, according to the AmericanAcademy of Dermatology (AAD). However, some treatments can last up to six months. If you want to maintain the results, you have to go back for routine touch-ups.
A botox brow lift is a safe and effective solution for droopy eyelids. But you may experience some side effects like:
