Plucking, threading, waxing and brushing can help you improve the shape of your brows, but these grooming techniques can’t do much to improve the height of your brows. The only way to do that is to get a brow lift.
What Is a Brow Lift?
A brow lift is a procedure that lifts the placement of the brow to give it a more pleasing shape. If you like the feline look of model Bella Hadid, you might want a lateral brow lift, where the tail is elevated. If you prefer the look of her sister, Gigi Hadid, you may want an overall brow lift — this elevates the arch and the tail, adding more space between the eyelid and brow. Not only will it change the look of your brow, but it can also make your eyes look bigger and wider than before.
This procedure shouldn’t be mixed up with brow lamination, which is sometimes called a “brow lift.” Brow lamination is a temporary beauty treatment that straightens and lifts up brow hairs, giving them a thicker, fuller look. It can be performed by an esthetician or you can do it yourself with the help of an at-home kit. Actual brow lifts should always be performed by trained medical professionals.
What Are the Kinds of Brow Lifts?
There are two kinds of brow lifts out there: surgical brow lifts and non-surgical brow lifts. Read ahead to find out how these techniques work, and which one is the right pick for you.
Surgical Brow Lifts
An endoscopic brow lift is a surgical procedure where several small incisions are placed behind the hairline, and then the skin of the forehead is lifted to the optical height. This procedure can do more than elevate the brows. It can also reduce any sagging or wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes.
You can also get an open brow lift or a mini brow lift. Open brow lifts are ideal for patients with greater skin laxity. Mini brow lifts are good for those who want a less invasive procedure.
Where can you get a surgical brow lift? You can go to GraceMed North York to book a consultation for an endoscopic brow lift, an open brow lift or a mini brow lift. This clinic offers the best plastic surgery in Toronto. During your consultation, you can find out which procedure is the right pick for you or whether you should go to their med-spa for a non-surgical option.
Non-Surgical Brow Lifts
A non-surgical brow lift uses Botox injections to give you the look of a surgical brow lift without going under the knife. Botox can relax facial muscles that naturally lower the brow. When those muscles are relaxed, the brow pulls upward and gives that desired “lift.”
Which One Should You Choose?
It depends on certain factors. If you want long-lasting results, then a surgical procedure is probably the best choice for you. If you don’t want to commit to something long-term, but you want to see what your brows will look like, then choose a non-surgical lift would be a better option. Botox results typically last for 3 to 4 months. You have the option to continue with injections after that point.
Another factor that you need to think about is your budget. Surgical procedures often cost more than non-surgical ones.
Pick the brow lift that works best for you, and get ready for your new look to raise some eyebrows.
