1) What is involved in a Botox brow lift?

The term ‘lift’ in a Botox brow lift does not mean that any kind of surgical procedure under anesthesia is involved like in a traditional brow lift. In this no skin is removed to lift the muscle or tissues that lies under the area but injecting Botox will give the similar effect. With the help of Botox injections in targeted areas, the eyebrows and the brow area can be temporarily lifted by relaxing the facial muscles that make it sag in the first place. The wrinkles in the brow area will also get treated in this way making the eyebrows appear elevated looking. The Botox is a neurotoxin that acts by stopping the movement of the nerve signals to the muscles that lead to fine lines and wrinkles on the face. When there aren’t any signals, the muscles will remain relaxed erasing the wrinkles that could appear otherwise..
