Botox® injections for the eyebrows

With age, the gaze area is noticeably affected by sagging skin and repeated eye movements. The skin at this level becomes thinner, crow’s feet wrinkles appear, dark circles deepen and the tail of the eyebrow tends to lower. All this will weigh down the eyes and age facial expressions.

Our dermatologists perform Botox® injections at the root of the eyebrow to raise the eyes and thus open the gaze .

When and why to do eyebrow botox injections?

With age, the tail of the eyebrows will gradually fall, which gives a sad look to the face. The loosening of the forehead skin and the repeated contraction of the muscles inevitably lead to the lowering of the eyebrow.

More specifically, three muscles put pressure on the inclination of the eyebrows:

  • The frontalis muscle
  • The corrugator muscle (muscle at the root of the eyebrow, joint at the nose)
  • The orbicularis muscle (muscle at the tail of the eyebrow, on the temporal side)

Thanks to its muscle relaxant effect , Botox has the particularity of causing temporary muscle relaxation. Indeed, the product being injected directly into the muscle, the wrinkles caused by the repeated contractions of facial expressions are controlled.

Botulinum toxin injections in aesthetic medicine make it possible to obtain an eyebrow lift without going through surgery.

How does a Botox eyebrow injection session take place at Skin Marceau?

Before initiating a Botox® treatment, our dermatologists receive you at the Skin Marceau clinic , in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, for an initial consultation. An interview followed by an analysis of your face will determine if you are a good candidate for an eyebrow treatment with Botox .

In addition, we take the time to listen to your request and advise you on your needs . It is possible to resort to comprehensive management of the gaze area if indicated, via injections of BotoxⓇ in the area of ​​forehead wrinkles or crow’s feet. A bothersome frown line can also be treated by injecting botulinum toxin. This global vision will allow obtaining harmonious results.

The eyebrow treatment with Botox is performed on an outpatient basis and you resume your activities directly. The procedure is quick and the treatment almost painless. Mild to moderate discomfort may be felt at the injection site. The application of an anesthetic cream can relieve this inconvenience.

Following the session, a slight swelling and localized redness may be observed. It is strongly recommended not to touch or massage the injected area to prevent the product from dispersing poorly.

Contraindications of Botox injections in the eyebrows

During our first discussion, we make sure that you have no contraindications for a Botox® treatment.

  • Certain medicinal intakes such as anticoagulants, anti-inflammatories, aspirin as well as certain antibiotics.
  • The presence of skin lesions or a skin infection in the area to be treated
  • A neuromuscular pathology such as myasthenia gravis
  • Pregnancy and/or breastfeeding

It is essential to inform us of all your medical history as well as your medication taken during your first appointment with us.

The results of Botox injections against eyebrow loss

The tail of the eyebrow is a thin and sensitive area. Only a precise and meticulous gesture guarantees a natural result.

The benefits of Botox® injections are visible in the days following the session, until the healing process is complete: it is a real medical lifting of the drooping eyebrow.

The tip of the eyebrow is permanently raised and the creases visible at the corner of the eye are smoothed . The look is more open and looks younger. Patients are amply satisfied with this technique because the effects are temporary (about 6 months), which makes it possible to adjust and personalize the treatment over time, according to each person’s desires.

Botox®, like hyaluronic acid, are part of the so-called resorbable products . Their properties gradually diminish, the body eliminating the injected botulinum toxin.

If you want to retain the benefits of the injections for a long time, we recommend that you perform a subsequent session after 6 months.
