As we age, due to increased muscle strength and decreased volume (skin thickness, bone loss, fat loss), our brow-lines can start to fall, either consistently or on the ends. This can result in forehead lines, misshaped eye brows, or worse, RFF (Resting Frustrated Face)!
To keep our brow lines where we want them, we take a multifaceted approach to this area using a combination of toxins and/or dermal filler. Our Neuromodulators can be used to decrease the strength of the muscles involved in forming wrinkles. In addition to the toxins, one of our favorite treatments is injecting dermal filler into the temples to replace naturally lost volume. Decreased fat, bone and muscle loss in and around the temples, lead to a concavity next to our eyes. As this area hollows, our brows don’t stay as lifted and we can have a gaunt or tired appearance.
*Pearl: as we age, our facial muscles become permanently micro-contracted from overuse. Trying to be mindful of the tension in your face (specifically between your brows and mouth) can help you naturally slow down the permanent micro-contractions!
