Lifting the Brow with Dermal Filler
As we progress though our 40s, the bones and fat of the face start to shrink away, causing the overlying skin to sag, forming folds over the eyes, hollowing under the eyes, flattening of once rounded cheeks and formation of jowls. This can give a tired, saggy appearance to the face. We call this shrinkage of bone and fat ‘volume loss’. We can treat volume loss by placing dermal filler under the skin to mimic the lost bone and fat: we call this ‘volumizing”.
These photos show the effect ‘volumizing’ the brow and frown area with dermal filler. I have used one syringe of Juvederm Ultraplus shared between both brows and the frown area. As you can see it has taken up the excess skin over the eyes and restored the curved contour of the brow bone, giving the natural light reflection under the brow that we often highlight with makeup. The eyes look fresher and more open. Placing this hydrating, nourishing hyaluranon substance has also improved the quality of the skin, reducing the appearance of pores and enhancing radiance.
