An ideal shape of a woman's eyebrow is an arch where in respect to the inner eyebrow the outer part is elevated. With time, because of the weakening of the connective tissue and loss of subcutaneous fat tissue in the temple area eye brows start to “drop”.
Before our shaping treatment it must be determined if we are dealing with loss of subcutaneous fat tissue and weak connective tissue or are both problems independent. One of the methods used to lift the eyebrows was a surgery incorporated into a wrinkle reduction treatment of the forehead. Since recently there is a new treatment - special wires are being installed underneath your skin to support the skin. There are also new methods with which we can lift and shape our eye brows.
The goal of botox is to induce a temporary weakness of forehead muscles and cause a lifting of the external part of the eyebrow. One treatment is needed and the results last from 4 to 9 months. There is no recovery after the treatment. Maintenance treatments are advised once a year every 1 to 3 years.
The role of the filler is to substitute the subcutaneous fat tissue which reduces with age and causes the eyebrows to drop. Depending on the subcutaneous fat tissue loss, fillers are injected into the temple area, in the eyebrow area or both. In that way eyebrows are shaped, accentuated and lifted. Fillers based on hyaluronic acid, which is a natural structural part of your skin, are advised. Results last from 5 to 12 months. One treatment is needed, and usually no recovery is required. There is a possibility of minor bruising. Maintenance treatments are advised once a year every 1 to 3 years.
Electro-magnetic energy causes microscopic damages underneath your skin, which are then ejected and replaced by new tissue. This causes eye brow lifting. The result is visible usually after the treatment, and in the next 6 to 9 months the result improves because it takes that long for the tissue to be replaced. 1 to 3 treatments are needed. After the treatment, redness can last up to 1 to 3 days, and can be covered up by make up the next day. There is no need for anesthesia.
The same principle applies as with other fractional radio-waves, only this laser uses optical energy and not electro-magnetic energy. One treatment is needed. Redness can last up to 2 to 5 days and can be covered up. Anesthesia is not necessary.
