Similar to myths that purport “breast exercises” as non-surgical alternatives to breast reduction, “brow lift exercises” are not an effective or recommended way to rejuvenate the forehead. Not only do facial exercises fail to lift an aging brow, but performing these actions can actually deepen (or form) wrinkles and creases. Many wrinkles in the upper face are caused by repetitive facial expressions, therefore needlessly contorting the face can accelerate the development of fine lines and actually make you look older.
If you start to notice sagging of the brow or other signs of upper facial aging, such as frown lines and creases along the width of the forehead, our plastic surgery practice in San Diego offers surgical and non-surgical solutions. These treatment options are powerful, effective, and designed with lasting results in mind:
- Brow (Forehead) Lift Surgery: For patients looking to rejuvenate their brow for a lifetime, a forehead lift is unrivaled. This cosmetic surgery can restore the brow to a more youthful positioning, as well as smooth any loose, excess skin causing wrinkling. Though nothing can stop the aging process, a brow lift can help you age more gracefully.
- BOTOX® Cosmetic and/or Skin Rejuvenation: While the outcome of these minimally invasive treatment options will not be as powerful or enduring as a brow lift, each can offer facial rejuvenation without surgery. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an ideal option to treat frown lines, brow creases, and other fine lines, while skincare treatments like laser skin resurfacing and microneedling can help improve the tone, texture, and elasticity of the skin.
