As we age, our facial skin typically undergoes changes due to gravity, sun exposure, and genetics. The forehead is no exception, and many people will begin to see fine lines and wrinkles progressively develop. In addition, the skin of the forehead may begin to droop over the natural rim of the brow. At Richmond Aesthetic Surgery, we offer two popular methods of combating the early onset of these common signs of age: a brow lift and non-surgical facial rejuvenation.
A brow lift is a surgical technique designed to eliminate excess skin while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. Since the skin is physically repositioned during surgery, Dr. Neil J. Zemmel can create a custom treatment plan to meet your unique expectations. Common cosmetic concerns such as vertical lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines along the forehead, and sagging skin can all be treated with a brow lift. This option is particularly effective for patients with severe wrinkles or excess forehead skin.
For patients with milder signs of age, a non-surgical brow lift can be performed with injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic. This non-invasive treatment can also be customized by Dr. Zemmel, targeting fine lines and wrinkles and ultimately reducing their prominence or eliminating them altogether. Additionally, this option may be ideal for patients who want a more youthful look without the recovery time associated with a surgical procedure.
