The shape of your eyebrows and the position of them can have a significant impact on your overall appearance, and it comes down to more than just plucking and waxing for the desired look. Those with a heavy brow might experience their eyebrows sagging down, which can result in looking upset, angry or tired.
There are multiple muscles within the forehead which are used for our facial expressions, and this means the skin on the forehead is very mobile and able to stretch and contract. As time goes on, elastin fibres and collagen in the skin will breakdown and production of these elements slows with age. Exposure to the sun combined with gravity and age can have a big impact on collagen and elastin levels and lead to a heavy brow and sagging forehead.
A heavy brow is a common concern for many men and women, and for some, it can lead to lowered self-esteem and confidence. Your overall appearance can be affected by a heavy brow, and if it is something you are unhappy with then there are treatment options available.
Heavy Brow Treatment At Hans Place Practice
Here at Hans Place Practice, we offer a selection of treatments that can help to improve the look of a heavy brow;
Botox is a type of prescription medicine which is injected directly into the muscles in order to minimise and improve the look of lines and wrinkles. Botox can be used to treat a heavy brow by working on the muscles in the forehead that have lost their elasticity and youthfulness. The medicine injected will block nerve impulses to the muscle which in turn reduces the muscle activity that causes a heavy brow. Our expert team can use Botox to reposition and lift the brow just a few millimetres, to give a subtle yet brighter and fresher brow finish.
Dermal fillers are clear gels that are usually made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. They can be used to plump the forehead which will restore the appearance and reduce the look of a heavy brow by lifting and preventing sagging. The fillers will integrate with existing skin tissue to result in a healthy, natural finish.
ULTRAcel is a non-surgical option for tightening the tissue of the face and forehead. Handheld devices are used to supply grid radiofrequency and ultrasound which work together to improve the facial structure. ULTRAcel can penetrate the tissue plane known as superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) in order to affect the body’s natural healing system and produce a new, healthy and tighter appearance for the brow.
