Forehead Creases Treatment Using BOTOX® Cosmetic Compared to Brow Lift

Patients can appear haggard or worn down when the skin on their faces begins to sag and forms wrinkles and creases. Dr. Mark Ginsburg provides cosmetic treatments that can transform a tired appearance into a refreshed one. Many patients come for treatment because they are tired of looking older than they actually feel. Looking older can negatively impact one’s life in a number of areas, from work to social life. A cosmetic procedure can restore a more youthful appearance, as well as one’s self-esteem.

A brow lift is a common procedure because the forehead is usually the first area to show visible signs of aging. A brow lift can be used to raise the brow line and smooth skin in the area. Although this treatment is popular, treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic is just as popular. This treatment is very effective in softening and eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, leading to a younger appearance. Dr. Ginsburg is available for consultation to help you understand the benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic versus a brow lift.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is quite popular with patients, probably because it is so accessible. This non-surgical procedure is considered to be very safe and affordable for almost any patient. BOTOX® Cosmetic involves an injection that will temporarily paralyze certain facial muscles that create creases and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic basically disables certain facial muscles so that your skin appears relaxed and smooth. This treatment works on the upper facial features and leads to a noticeable improvement in the appearance of the forehead and eye region. This leads to a younger and more refreshed appearance for the patient.

One minor drawback of the procedure is the fact that it is temporary. Although treatment results are significant, they only last from four to six months. At this time, treatment should be repeated if the patient expects to maintain the benefits of the treatment. Patients should also be aware that BOTOX® does not address loose skin — only wrinkles, lines, and creases.

Brow Lifts

The most significant benefit of brow lift surgery is that it offers long-lasting results to the patient. Brow lifts eliminate wrinkles and lines, leading to a more youthful appearance for the face. It not only helps with wrinkles, but also raises the brow line and does away with loose facial skin. Patients who have significant signs of aging because of a low brow may find a brow lift better suited and more effective than BOTOX® Cosmetic. The main negative of a brow lift is that it costs more and is more invasive. Although any surgical procedure involves risk, we reduce that risk by performing an endoscopic brow lift. This procedure is less risky because it only involves small incisions that heal more quickly, reducing recovery time.

If you are dealing with noticeable signs of aging, you should consider cosmetic treatment. Dr. Mark Ginsburg provides safe and effective treatment in a caring and professional setting.
