Age and gravity work against your efforts to maintain a youthful appearance. If you find yourself fighting a losing battle against a forehead defined by wrinkles, you may be a candidate for a brow lift. At New England Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center, our expert staff led by Dr. Lazor will listen to your concerns and discuss all of the benefits and details involved with this effective, anti-aging procedure.
How Long Does a Brow Lift Last?
If you’ve been regularly receiving cosmetic treatments to address your forehead wrinkles or drooping skin, you know that these treatments are effective but, they’re only temporary and their results wear off after a few months.
Unlike these effective yet temporary injections, this procedure will provide you with long-lasting results. You will enjoy a smooth, tight, youthful, wrinkle-free forehead for upward of 10 to 12 years or longer, yet you play a key role in how long your results ultimately last.
Your Role in Creating Lasting Results
If you want the results from this procedure to last as long as possible, you need to commit to taking an active role in your health and skincare. There are some things that you can do to increase the longevity of your results relating to health, skincare, lifestyle, and diet choices.
Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
To ensure that your results last as long as possible, you should focus on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This involves getting enough sleep each night, keeping your stress levels low, getting enough exercise each day, and nurturing your skin with moisturizing products.
Stress impacts the skin in significant ways, and when you nourish yourself emotionally, physically, and mentally, you will be able to keep your stress levels as low as possible.
It’s no secret that smoking wreaks havoc on the skin and is responsible for several skin issues including aging, drooping skin as well as lines and wrinkles. If you avoid smoking at all costs following your brow lift, you will be able to maintain long-lasting results.
One way to avoid the damaging effects of the sun is by daily applying an SPF. Doing so will help you maintain your results and keep your skin from developing new lines and wrinkles that result from sun damage. The best course of action is to avoid excess sun exposure in general, but for those times that you can’t avoid the sun, protect your face by wearing a quality SPF as well as a hat if possible.
Maintain a Healthy Diet
There is a direct correlation between your diet and your skin. When you choose foods that nourish the skin and avoid those that don’t, you will be investing in your results and helping them to last as long as possible. Additionally, you should make sure that you are getting enough water each day so that your skin stays hydrated and receives the water content required for maintaining your glowing, youthful skin.
What Does a Brow Lift Treat?
This procedure effectively targets the signs of aging in the forehead area. These signs include drooping skin, sagging eyebrows, and deep wrinkles. All of these signs of aging are closely related because as gravity takes its toll on the face, the forehead begins to exhibit drooping and sagging.
This leads to the development of moderate to deep forehead wrinkles that push your forehead down toward your eyebrows, creating a furrow that makes you appear angry.
Types of Brow Lifts
There are different types of forehead lifts that can be performed based on the patient’s goals. Each work toward the same result, lifting the brow, yet they involve a different set of techniques based on the patient’s ultimate desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Lazor will recommend the best plan of action based on your needs so that you get the exact results that you want.
During this procedure, incisions are created behind the patient’s hairline. The forehead will then be lifted and secured in place with the surgeon’s chosen method. When the endoscopic technique is used, small incisions are created and smaller incisions lead to much faster recovery time.
During the hairline procedure, incisions are made between the hairline and the forehead. This method doesn’t result in the movement of the actual hairline following the procedure and is often used on those with an already receding hairline.
The coronal lift is a traditional method that involves an incision made behind the hairline. From here, the forehead lift takes place and the incision is closed with sutures.
Am I a Candidate?
If other cosmetic treatments aren’t giving you the results you are looking for and sagging, drooping skin and wrinkles define your appearance, especially in your forehead region, you may be a candidate for a brow lift.
Those interested in this procedure each have a unique concern, so the treatment experienced by each undergoing a brow lift will not be identical. We can determine if you are a candidate for a brow lift at your initial consultation.
