Patients who do not require a full lift can opt for a mini lift that can be performed under local anesthesia. It is ideal for patients who only wish to minimally lift the brows or wish to balance uneven brows. This impressive technique improves the arch in patients with brow flattening. The mini-brow lift is a quick, minimally invasive, non-endoscopic method that is used to correct the frontalis forehead muscles and the over-pull of the eyebrow depressors (“frown lines”). Elevation of the eyebrow along the bony arch and symmetry of the eyebrow position can be achieved, often softening the “hooding” of the upper eyelid and eliminating the need for upper eyelid incisions.
A direct lift is used to treat brow ptosis arising from either involutional changes or facial nerve palsy. A direct lift involves removing segments of skin and muscle just above the eyebrows. The incision is hidden within the brow hair. A direct brow lift does not address wrinkles or lines within the forehead and surgical scars may be prominent. A direct lift is typically reserved for older patients or for men with thick eyebrow hair and male pattern baldness for which other eyebrow lift techniques might result in unacceptable elevation of the hairline.
An Ultherapy lift can enhance eyebrow elevation and works well for those individuals who do not want a plastic surgery procedure. Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved device for this purpose. It accomplishes the lift by stimulating the production of collagen to produce tightening and lifting. It can provide a natural lift to the brows that improves over several months. The peak effect will be seen between three and six months when you will see a lifted brow and a refreshed look.
