Your brow can lower significantly as you age creating a tired, older or even angry look. Sagging skin can cause this descent. If you have a mild brow descent or are not interested in surgery and would like some lift in this area you may want to consider Botox/Xeomin. This also can be combined with fillers to improve the brow contour.
“The greatest fear of most patients is to have a “surprised-Phyllis Diller” look after an injection,” says Dr. Ricciardelli. “My goal is to give you an improved version of yourself. Not necessarily different.”
With over 25 years of experience injecting Botox and fillers Dr. Ricciardelli is keenly aware of what is crucial in achieving a natural and well placed brow. Dr. Ricciardelli has been named an Expert Injector by New Beauty Magazine.
How do Botox and Xeomin work to lift the brow?
What do I need to do before my injection?
What can I expect during and after the treatment?
It is recommended that you do not lie down for four hours after treatment. Generally it takes about three days before you see changes and 2 weeks before the full effects can be seen. Deeper wrinkles may take longer to fade and need further treatment for more improvement. Expect the treatment to last 3 to 4 months in most cases. Some patients will elect to wait 6 months before a subsequent injection if they are still getting some resolution and lift. If you elect not to repeat the injection, your wrinkles will return to their original state over time and your brows will drop. Re-treating the area is a good way to prevent wrinkles from progressing into a deeper state. Our door is always open for any questions.
