Eyebrows play a crucial role in facial appearance. If eyebrows sag due to natural aging or other factors, it can give the impression of fatigue and lack of energy. It’s no wonder that more and more people are inquiring about treatments to enhance their eyebrow shape. Let’s take a look at some of the methods available.
Eyebrows can be classified into various types, with each type being suitable for different facial shapes and personalities. For example, in physiognomy, straight eyebrows represent dependability, careful planning, and stubbornness, while arched eyebrows represent confidence but also a tendency towards arrogance. Other types of eyebrow shapes include the rounded shape, the S shape, and the diagonal shape. These eyebrow shapes can be modified through various methods such as eyebrow trimming, eyebrow makeup, and eyebrow embroidery. However, if sagging skin is the cause of eyebrow drooping, more specialized treatments may be necessary.
There are generally three methods for treating sagging eyebrows:
- Botox Injection Botox injection is not only used to treat dynamic wrinkles and square jawline, but also can lift eyebrows. A small amount of Botox is usually injected under the eyebrows, which weakens the orbicularis oculi muscle under the eyes and allows the muscle above the eyebrows to become stronger, lifting the eyebrows.
- Filler Injection As the skin ages, the eyebrow and temple areas may become sunken, making the eyebrows appear droopy. We can inject fillers, usually hyaluronic acid, to fill the area above the eyebrow bone, giving a lift to the eyebrow area and making the eyes appear more three-dimensional. We can also inject the fillers in the temple area to improve the sunken appearance.
- Radiofrequency (RF) Lifting For those with sagging eyebrows due to loose skin, RF lifting may be a more suitable treatment. The principle of RF is to tighten the collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen, which helps to lift the eyebrow area.
Each of these three methods has its pros and cons. It’s best to consult a doctor to evaluate the cause of eyebrow drooping and determine the most appropriate treatment plan.
