What is a Botox Lift or Botox Brow Lift?

A Botox Brow Lift is a descriptive term for the effective result achieved through weakening the brow depressor muscles (orbicularis oculi, procerus, and corrugator supercilii). The “Lift” is achieved through the unopposed action of the frontalis muscle (what causes the eyebrows to elevate when surprised). While this is easy to describe, there is an art and science to consistently achieving symmetrically arched brows over time. Therefore, I advise patients to use an experienced injector, who carefully records location, quantity, and type of product administered. Importantly, the patient should follow up with this same injector if they would like to duplicate their best results.
