Botox may save you the cost of a brow lift in the Irvine area

A number of aspects of the face add up to total beauty. Proportions are incredibly important in our overall appearance, as is the smooth texture of the skin. As we age, this all changes, leading many to feel concerned about how we look. Getting older doesn't have to mean looking tired or angry. It also doesn't necessarily have to mean correcting the signs of aging with surgical procedures. Today, there are multiple options available to those who want to rejuvenate their face, including Botox. In many cases, this treatment can save the cost of a surgical brow lift. Patients of Dr. Arta Farshidi, located near Irvine, can realize the full capabilities of Botox after just one treatment.

Botox is a cosmetic injectable that just about everyone has heard of. This drug has been hailed for its ability to smooth furrows between the brows and to eliminate crow's feet at the corners of the eyes. Many people even know that Botox can be administered as a treatment for excessive sweating. What may still be somewhat of a mystery is the way in which Botox can beautifully transform the eyes by treating the brow.

How muscles affect the eyes


Several different muscles are situated around the eyes, each of which may perform a different task. On the forehead, as well, are multiple muscles. Near the top of the forehead, muscles pull in an upward motion. Just at the brow line are muscles that contract in a downward motion, facilitating the frown or squint. When the muscles used to squint enter into a state of perpetual contraction, the eyebrows are pulled down and the eyes become somewhat closed off.

This development in the upper face can have a dramatic effect on a person's overall appearance. Heaviness in the brows can allow the upper eyelid to look puffy or hooded. More than the actual appearance of age, the too-low brow can make one appear angry or intensely serious.

If you have noticed unwanted changes in the area of the brows and eyes, you may discover that a simple Botox treatment can relieve the downward pull of contracted muscles and reveal more open, more energetic eyes.
