As we get older, wrinkles and fine lines develop as a result of repeated facial expressions, the effects of gravity, and aging. Facial rejuvenation procedures such as blepharoplasty or mini facelift can target certain areas of the face to restore a more youthful appearance. The forehead is a large area of the face that can develop deep wrinkles and excess skin, resulting in sagging eyebrows and frown lines. Younger patients with low brows or multiple wrinkles may already benefit from treatment due to stress or overuse of facial muscles. To treat deep wrinkles between the eyebrow and along the forehead, double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Fernando Burstein performs brow lift surgery using small incisions hidden in the hairline and endoscopic assistance.
During forehead lift, also known as a brow lift, tissue and muscle beneath the skin is repositioned or removed. An endoscope, or small camera to internally view the treatment area, is often used as a less invasive method to assess the entire treatment area. Dr. Burstein tightens the skin and muscles from within to smooth the forehead and lift eyebrows back to a youthful position.
For patients who are not ready for a comprehensive procedure or who only have mild signs of aging, Dr. Burstein also offers cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers as non-surgical facial rejuvenation options. Botox® and Dysport® can be injected into the forehead and areas surrounding the eyes to relax wrinkle-causing facial muscles. Patients often see results for up to six months following treatment. Dermal fillers such as Restylane® and Perlane® smooth wrinkles and folds by addressing areas of lost volume. These injectables can also help patients maintain their plastic surgery results after their procedure.
