Sometimes the first signs of aging are drooping eyebrows and wrinkles around the eyes, between the brows, and on the forehead. In fact, these issues often appear when we are as young as our 20s or 30s. Although it’s not unusual, it can be frustrating. Dr. Alharkan uses BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers at his practice as nonsurgical solutions for signs of aging around the eyes and forehead.
A smooth, unlined forehead is a hallmark of youth and attractiveness. But a lifetime of expressions leaves its mark in the form of vertical frown lines, horizontal forehead furrows, and drooping brows. These can cause you to look stern, sad–even unapproachable–although you feel happy and relaxed.
Dr. Alharkan is a master of injectable treatments to alleviate signs of aging in this part of the face. In many cases, the skillful use of Dysport® or BOTOX® Cosmetic at his office does the trick, taking years off of your appearance and bringing back your youthful brow. BOTOX Cosmetic is injected into the facial muscles that contract during facial expressions. The purified protein in BOTOX blocks nerve signals to the muscle, causing it to relax and allowing the skin to lie flat.
In the case of deeper lines, Dr. Alharkan may suggest one of the many dermal filler options he offers to bring back the smoother looking skin that we associate with youth and attractiveness.
