There are several ways to improve the ‘falling brow’ that occurs with age. Just as there several ways, there are several causes of the falling brow.
One, or more of these causes may be present, so treatments need to be tailored to suit the individual.
So how do anti-wrinkle injections help here? By relaxing specific muscles around the eye area. The position of your brow is partially determined by the balance between a group of muscles pulling the brow up and a group of muscles pulling the brow down.
What about returning skin firmness? Depending on the severity of the laxity of the skin, epiclinic® has devices that firm the skin reducing the ‘sadness’ of the eye area.
Devices that perform this function range from ultrasound/radio frequency (Exilis Protégé Elite) to fractionated non-ablative (Fraxel re:store) lasers to the Acupulse CO2 fractionated ablative laser.
But the in a high number of cases, the depression at the temples is the culprit.
It never ceases to amaze us how brighter the eye area results from reducing the depression with dermal filler, with the effects lasting 12-24 months.
