Four Steps to Getting Brows Worthy of Envy

So you’ve successfully gotten rid of your crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, and jowls. But you still have brow liftsagging skin and wrinkles on your forehead? Below are four easy, yet effective, steps to a line-free forehead and transforming your brows into a pair that is the envy of others.

  1. Give your brows time to grow. Having thin eyebrows makes it difficult for you to shape them into something appropriate for your face shape. Avoid over-tweezing. If it looks like those hairs are not growing at all, consider using hair growth stimulators.

  1. Seek the services of a pro if you’re trying to find your appropriate brow shape for the first time. Once you have your desired shape, you can trim it at home for maintenance.

  1. Consider a brow lift! The time, money, and effort you invested in keeping those brows in perfect shape is for naught if your forehead is filled with lines and furrows in between your brows. Dr. Tresley performs an endoscopic brow lift, an advanced technique that creates tiny incisions at or near the temples to access the underlying forehead muscles.

  1. If surgery isn’t your cup of tea, consider injectables instead. Muscle relaxers such as Botox and Dysport are the perfect choice for reducing the appearance of forehead wrinkles non-surgically.
