Has anyone tried fillers to volumize the brow and temple area to lift rather than surgery? My ps said that is an option, but I'm not sure. I had never heard this before. Apparently loss of volume in the temple area and above the brow is one of the things that made the brow go downward. Puffing up that area will pull it up a bit.
There are so many horror stories on here. I'm thinking of trying the filler. I know it won't get rid of my lines..which aren't terrible, but just want my brows up a bit.
Fillers may work, but you could risk getting lumps or lop-sided results. Have you thought of facial exercises? You can follow video instructions or buy a hand held device which stimulates the muscles electronically.
In the appropriate patient, volumizing the brow and temple could potentially be a much better option than lifting. We now know that volume depletion is a big factor in the area. I prefer Sculptra for temples and Restylane for upper brow region utilizing a blunt micro-cannula injection system to ensure safe injection and decreased rate of bruising.
Yes, a browlift with fillers is a great alternative to the traditional surgical procedure. In fact, "liquid browlifts" are likely the future of brow rejuvenation. I typically use Sculptra in the temples and Restylane in around the brows using micro-blunt tip cannula to achieve optimal results. The blunt tip cannula allows for more precise placement of the fillers, plus results in less bruising because it is flexible and less traumatic to the facial tissue.
