The best anti-aging procedures fight gravity. Aging causes our skin to lose elasticity, leading to an inevitable sag that distorts our features and alters the smooth contours of our faces. Gravity hits some of our facial features harder than others. A simple wrinkled forehead and sagging brow can do more than age you; it can obstruct your peripheral vision and make you look perpetually tired or sad. Rather than a smooth, flawless surface, our forehead starts to show decades of damage and wear. For those of us who want our faces to reflect a younger, more reinvigorated look, Aesthetx offers the latest evolution in rejuvenation procedures: the endoscopic brow lift.
What Can a Brow Lift Do?
A brow lift can rejuvenate your upper face by lifting drooping eyebrows and sagging forehead and remove deep creases. An eyebrow lift can also reduce frown lines that appear between the eyebrows. Dr. Berkowitz and Dr. Zeidler take it one step further by offering the endoscopic eyebrow lift, a state-of-the-art modification of the brow lift procedure that creates breathtaking results while being minimally invasive. To maximize their facial rejuvenation, many patients pair the brow lift with facelifts and a blepharoplasty.
Brow Lift Procedure
In an endoscopic brow lift, small incisions are made in the hairline. Small surgical tools are placed through the incisions, as well as a small camera called an endoscope to help our surgeons visualize your procedure. Then, your skin and muscle layer will be separated from the bone. The muscles that form frown lines will be cut and weakened to soften the appearance of frown lines. Your forehead and eyebrows will then be lifted and tightened using strategically placed sutures and tacking devices.
PRP for the Brow Lift
Aesthetx uses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), the latest tool in regenerative medicine, for its endoscopic eyebrow lift. PRP is a serum created from your own blood that contains a cocktail of growth factors and other natural components essential for healing and repair. By applying PRP to the incision areas, your healing times will be significantly reduced and your recovery will be far more comfortable.
Endoscopic Brow Lift Recovery
Because it’s a minimally invasive procedure, the recovery for the endoscopic brow lift is much faster than the traditional brow lift. We recommend that you keep your head elevated at all times for the first few days of your recovery. You should be able to return to work or school after one week, and you can resume exercising or strenuous activity after a few weeks.
During your recovery you might experience side effects like headaches, itching, swelling, numbness, and other seemingly strange sensations. These symptoms will disappear within a few weeks. Any scars from the brow lift will be hidden within your hairline. The stables are removed within a week and the sutures and tacking devices should dissolve after nine months once your tissues have healed and settled in their raised position.
