Your eyebrows are a very visible and vital part of your appearance, and even small flaws, lines, or visible signs of aging in this area can make you look older or less appealing. A perfect brow can help frame your eyes and elevate the other facial components of your appearance. The right brow shape and fullness can even help eliminate years from your appearance and hide your true biological age. Tweezing your brow is not enough as you age in many cases but there are also cosmetic procedures which can help you to look your best and fight aging gracefully.
The perfect brows will be well groomed, with skin that is taut and smooth, and an arch that is delicate but well defined. Another important consideration is proper proportion because all of your facial features need to be well balanced and in harmony. Brows that seem too large or small for your eyes, forehead, nose, or facial length can seem out of place. As you age your brow may also start to sag or wrinkle and this can make you look older or give your eyes a droopy, sunken, or tired appearance. When you address these issues as soon as they start you will generally get the best possible results with any cosmetic procedures or surgical techniques.
Common Brow Problems and Possible Solutions
Problem #1: Brow Lines, Wrinkles, and Visible Signs of Ageing
Brow lines, wrinkles, and the visible signs of aging can change your appearance as you get older and your skin starts to lose tone and elasticity. These changes can cause you to look angry, appear to be frowning when you are not, and even lessen your confidence and self esteem because you may appear drawn, aged, and haggard.
One way to minimise or even eliminate brow lines, wrinkles, and other initial signs of aging is with Fillers and anti-wrinkle injections, dubbed a ‘non-surgical brow lift’. Fillers can help fill in any lines that may develop in your perfect brow and smooth out the skin so that it appears younger and tighter. Anti-wrinkle injections and certain other cosmetic products are injected into the facial muscles in your brow area to paralyse muscles and prevent the contractions which can cause lines and wrinkles to form.
Problem #2: Brows That Sag or Droop
If you have a brow that is starting to sag or droop this can add years to your appearance, and affect how you feel about yourself and how others perceive you.
If you want to correct brows that sag or droop there are a few different options that you can take advantage of. A brow lift can help to raise your brow and eliminate sagging and drooping but this is also a fairly invasive surgery that may require some recovery time. Sometimes tissue fillers or anti-wrinkle injections may offer some improvement but the results will not be as drastic as a full perfect brow lift. Some cosmetic procedures that help rejuvenate your skin and promote collagen and elastin production may also be used to help minimize these issues and help your skin regain more elasticity.
