Few tiny injections of Botulinum Toxin Type A (popularly known as Botox or BTA) into specific areas of the eyebrow and forehead muscle help to elevate and reshape the eyebrows. When Botox is injected into a muscle, it blocks impulses from the nerve to the injected facial muscles. The muscles become relaxed and dormant. Botox is target specific, which means only the injected muscles do not contract while the untreated facial muscles continue to contract in a normal fashion allowing facial expression.
Brow lift procedure using Botox / Dysport
The physician, after analysing the eyebrow, shall plan the site of injection and the amount of Botox required for the procedure. Treatment involves injection of very small amounts of Botox using a very tiny needle into the Corrugator and Frontalis muscles. Occasionally forehead lines may need to be corrected / reduced in order to achieve optimal brow lift results. The Treatment is well tolerated and takes just a short time with minimal recovery. The area can also be prepared with a topical anaesthetic cream to make the procedure more comfortable. Botox takes effect on the injected muscles about 3 to 7 days after Treatment.
Brow lift results
The brow lift effect of Botox last anytime between 4 to 6 months after which it gradually fades. In some individuals, for no known reason, the effects may last longer or shorter than the published information. Once the longevity of Botox wears out, the nerve impulse gradually re-establishes and the muscle activity reverts to its original condition. Once muscle activity is restored, the eyebrow gradually reverts to its original shape.
The cost of a brow lift using Botox is approximately RM 600 - RM 800. However, occasionally forehead lines may need to be corrected / reduced in order to achieve optimal brow lift results; if so, the cost may range from RM 800 - RM 1200.
