Lateral Brow lift with Botox / Dysport

This is a blog to discuss how to get a brow lift with Botox / Dysport (Seattle, Washington).  Overtime, aging has a tendency to decrease the volume around our eyes. This leads to a descent of our eyebrows which can lead to the appearance that our eyes are smaller and that we have a stern look.  Also with the decreased volume and skin thickness, our muscles are more likely to exert their actions on our skin.  In essence, our muscles are more likely to create wrinkles the closer they are to our skin.

What also causes are eyebrows to descend is due to the action of the eye muscles around our eye.  The function of our eye muscles is to close the eye.   Over acting eye muscles can actually lead to the eyebrows descending as well.  Through Botox / Dysport, wecan elevate our eyebrows by making the eye muscles around our eyes weaker.  This action can lead to the other muscles in our forehead to have a stronger influence on our eyebrows and hence more effect on lifting up the eyebrows.  Injecting botox / dysport between the eyes and around the sides of the eyes can do this.  Usually the amount of botox you need in between the eyes is around 8-20 units.  On the sides you can put anywhere from 6-15 units on each side to accomplish this.  Pricing of botox ranges from 9-16 dollars per unit with Dysport being a little less expensive.

Importantly the way you inject botox on the sides of the eyes is important for a brow lift.  Typically, I use 6-10 units under the lateral part of the eyebrow to get this lifting affect.
