A brow lift is a non-surgical and non-invasive method of reducing wrinkles in the eye area and lifting sagging or hooded skin above the eyes. By using anti-wrinkle injections to relax the muscles that drag the brows down, this lets the arch float upwards, causing a physical lift of the brows.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A local anaesthetic is first applied to the injection sites on your face. Once you are ready, small quantities of the Botulinum toxin serum are injected into the forehead between your eyebrows.
Botulinum toxin is suitable for most people; however, this treatment should be avoided by anyone with muscle problems or nerve damage, or anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding.

Experiencing sagging skin in the eye area, hooded skin above the eyes or excessive wrinkling beside the eyes? A brow lift is the perfect non-surgical treatment for dealing with this issue and delivering a fresher, younger-looking face. Our skilled and experienced medical professionals use a combination of two highly effective treatments, tailored to your needs and desired results, to produce reducing sagging and wrinkles in the delicate eye area with minimal downtime.
WHAT IS A BROW LIFT?
A brow lift is a combination of two common procedures, it uses threads and anti-wrinkle injections in order to rejuvenate sagging or hooded brows and furrows between the eyes and across the forehead.
ARE BROW LIFTS SAFE?
The procedure itself is minimally invasive. As the threads used in the procedure are manufactured using polydioxanone, the same material that is used in sutures, they are a very safe, bio-degradable alternative to invasive open brow-lift surgery.
HOW DOES A BROW LIFT WORK?
The threads are placed under the skin using thin needles. Once in place, the threads are pulled and the skin is tightened and plumped, by barbs, which embed themselves into the subcutaneous layer of your skin. The threads initiate an inflammatory response, which promotes collagen manufacture in the treated areas. This process also improves blood flow to the skin. The result is younger, fresher, brighter appearance in the brow area. Anti-wrinkle injections are also administered to block the nerve impulse to the muscles around the brow area of your face that, over time, cause wrinkles.
Anti-wrinkle injections usually last 3-4 months, while the threads can last 6-9 months, so you may require an anti-wrinkle course in between maintenance treatments depending on how your desired preference.
The common side effects that occur with thread-lifting and anti-wrinkle injections are generally connected with the injections sites and usually resolve themselves within two days. They include:
- Temporary skin dimpling
These generally resolve within 2 – 7 days.
