BOTOX Brow lift Scottsdale

Botox is known for its wrinkle-minimizing effects, the ability to plump up the skin and thereby giving the client a more youthful appearance. Botox is a quick and simple solution and alternative to more invasive surgical procedures. Many women and men around the world have turned to Botox to help turn back the hands of time. 

BOTOX Brow lift Scottsdale is able to open up the eye area and gives clients a more awake appearance. This treatment treats frown lines between the client’s brows. In addition, with the use of Botox cosmetic (botulinum toxin type A), the brow area will be lifted as well and will raise the brow arch and thereby creating a more beautiful brow arch. In this article I will be discussing the Botox brow lift, its advantages, and clearing up any misconceptions about the procedure.  


How much of a brow lift can you get with Botox

One of the first tell-tale signs of aging happens around the eye area. Creases in the forehead, sagging eyebrows, and frown lines can make a client’s appearance look aged far more than any other types of wrinkles or creases on the face. The alternative to a Botox brow lift is tradition brow lift surgery which can leave a client with both risk and downtime. 

The Botox brow lift works by relaxing the underlying muscle and creating a more smooth appearance on the surface of the skin. It may also alleviate the appearance of the hooded-eyelid. Keep in mind that the results may differ from patient to patient. This is due to the fact that muscle mass and anatomy may vary from client to client. Administering Botox is a skill and doctors may each have their own technique for delivering Botox and achieving the desired results. For example, take crows feet, some doctors may administer one row while another doctor may administer two rows. 

To obtain the desired results, as some patients may desire more of a brow lift while others may only need a subtle brow lift, the doctor may decide on the amount of rows to deliver. Keep in mind that Botox works by relaxing the muscle that pulls down the area. But generally speaking, anywhere from 25 to 40 units should give a fairly good lift. 

Can Botox give you a brow lift

Botox itself may not give the patient a brow lift in the sense that brow lifting surgery will. As is the case with a surgical brow lift that lifts the skin to give a more youthful appearance, Botox brow lift can be used strategically to achieve the same results but these results will only be temporary. As mentioned before, a skilled physician is able to give the appearance of a surgical brow lift with the use of Botox. 

How long does Botox brow lift last

When this procedure is performed by a skilled doctor, the patient should see results within a few days and these results should last a few months. What is important to remember about this point is that the results with differ from patient to patient. In addition, the skill of the doctor delivering the Botox will have a fairly big effect on the results. That is why it is always pertinent to have this procedure performed by a qualified doctor who has the necessary experience when it comes to achieving the desired results. The average time frame for results are around four to six months. Again, this will differ from patient to patient. 

Can Botox lift hooded eyelids

No. Unlike the brow lift surgical procedure that removes excess skin in order to give a more youthful appearance, Botox may do the exact opposite. However, if the Botox is delivered and the desired brow lift is achieved through the correct placement of the Botox, the patient may see a slight lift in the eyelids. Though this will differ from patient to patient and Botox should not be used for the sole purpose of lifting hooded eyelids as there are alternative procedures that will yield dramatically better results. 

 What is a non surgical brow lift

There are many alternatives to brow lift surgery. Surgery is more invasive and may require the use of anesthesia. Non-surgical brow lifts are also known as nonsurgical blepharoplasty and may come in various forms such as injections, including Botox and dermal fillers. Other temporary treatments include laser treatments, radio frequency treatments, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

The treatment chosen by the patient will depend largely on factors such as age and budget. Dermal fillers plump up the skin. This type of procedure has no down-time and results are temporary which means that patients will need additional treatments in the future to maintain results. Botox works in a similar fashion and my also require additional treatments to maintain results. 

Keep in mind that there are still risks and after effects associated with these types of procedures which include:

  • Bruising
  • Infection
  • Rash
  • Nerve injuries
  • Itching
  • Swelling
  • Scarring
  • Hyper pigmentation
  • Breathing or eating difficulties

Where do they inject Botox for brow lift

Injections will be delivered to the glabellar region. This is the area between the eyebrows. Approximately 20 units will be delivered to this area. In addition, the doctor will deliver injections to the orbicularis oculi muscle which is located in the eyelid. The process relaxes the muscles underneath which gives a smoother appearance and lifts the brows to their original position. 

Will my Botox even out

You should notice results in three to seven days. Following treatment, the patient should have a heavy sensation and experience tightness in the area treated for about one to two weeks. Botox may appear uneven initially and that is because the Botox will take effect at different rates. This will even out as the Botox takes effect. 

Is a brow lift the same as Botox

A brow lift may give similar results as Botox but the two are fastly different approaches to diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Brow lift surgery involves down time as well as surgically removing excess skin while Botox on the other hand works through the aid of injections. Patients experience no downtime with Botox. In addition, Botox is much faster and takes much less time to perform. Generally speaking, and depending on the amount of injections that the patient receives, Botox treatments can be performed in under 20 minutes. 

What’s better Botox or Dysport

Both Botox and Dysport are injections that help to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dysport is much more diluted than Botox. It also spreads much faster than Botox. Both of these treatments are considered to be safe and effective at treating fine lines and wrinkles.

The effects of Dysport may be apparent much sooner than Botox but Botox will last much longer than Dysport. Botox is considered to be a more potent formula than Dysport and works great on smaller areas while Dysport may be more successful on larger areas. 

Where should you not inject Botox

While Botox is a great non-surgical alternative to relieve the appearance of wrinkles there are certain areas where Botox should not be used and will not be effective. These areas include the neck muscles, in inner part of the nose area, as well as in the hands or on the feet. 

It is important to note that a board-certified dermatologist is trained in the facial area and muscles and knows exactly where to deliver Botox injections and which areas to avoid. It is therefore important for those who seek out this treatment for the first time to consult with a board-certified dermatologist or doctor. 

Botox is most effective in the upper part of the face. However, Botox on the lower areas of the face may require more attention, precision, and caution. 

Can Botox fix a lazy eye

Botox has been known to be effective in treating a lazy eye as well as preventing lazy eye from developing. As mentioned before, keep in mind, that treatments are temporary and follow-up treatments may be required in order to maintain the results. 

Botox results may also differ from patient to patient when it comes to treating lazy eye and the results are not permanent. Treatments will be required every four months to maintain the results. 

In fact, Botox used to be used for children with lazy eye. This was done long before Botox was used to treat other aging ailments. However, there are other surgical procedures that can correct a lazy eye and have long lasting or permanent results.

Can Botox lift jowls

Aging results in skin loosing its elasticity and giving the appearance of aged skin. Aging leads to sagging skin around the jawline, neck, and lower face. Botox injections may help to even out the skin and help the muscle underneath to relax. This in turn gives the skin a lift and alters the appearance of the patient giving a more youthful appearance. The lift will be subtle but still noticeable. Botox tightens and will lift the jaw area effectively, safely, and quickly. 

Can Botox lift heavy eyelids

Botox is one of the most successful non-surgical treatments on the market today for lifting and treating heavy eyelids and brow. This will depend on the skill of the doctor who administers the Botox injections. Skillfully and strategically placed injections may dramatically lift the brow and change the appearance of heavy eyelids. 

Why are my eyebrows arched after Botox

After Botox treatment it is common for the treated area to feel tight, itchy, swollen, and slightly painful. Botox, as previously mentioned, works by relaxing the muscle underneath. This will lift the eyebrows. This should subside within two to 14 days and results of the Botox delivered should be visible. This is common and should not be a cause for concern. If the brow arch does not naturally go back into place after the two week period it is best to revisit the doctor who will administer Botox to the upper part of the brow which should push the brow back into place. 

Will Spock eyebrows go away

Spock eyebrows, alternatively known as Mephisto, are eyebrows that are unnaturally turned up. This is an unwanted effect of Botox. But this should not be a cause for concern. Simply allow the botulinum toxin to take full effect. This means that the Botox has kicked in and the results are now fully visible. If, however, the Spock eyebrows remain after the two week period, you may need to revisit the doctor to correct the problem.

How long do Botox injections last

This is possibly one of the most important questions that patients wonder about before getting Botox. Botox results may last for three to four months but this will largely depend on a variety of factors such as age, affected area, and skill of the doctor administering the Botox injections.

Does crows Botox lift eyebrows

Yes. It may yield results depending on the amount of Botox that has been administered and where the Botox is administered. The corrugator and procerus muscles are relaxed and the central part of the forehead muscles to relax. This in turn will give the forehead and eye brows a much smoother and lifted appearance. 

How do you get a brow lift

A surgical brow lift is achieved by making an incision across the scalp. The appearance of wrinkles are diminished or eliminated by removing certain muscle and releasing certain facial tissue. The results, as is the case with any surgical treatment for aging, do not have permanent results. However, a properly performed brow lift should last for about 10 to 12 years. 


We all want a more youthful appearance. Consulting with the right doctor who has the experience and expertise to deliver the results that you want is crucial when making the decision to get Botox treatments. This is especially true in the case of patients who are new to this type of treatment.
