Where Should Dysport Be Injected to Raise Eyebrow Corner?

If the corner of the eyebrow is indeed droopy, Dysport can be injected into the area below the tail of the eyebrow.  This will relax the muscle that pulls the tail of the eyebrow down and sometimes you can get 1-3mm of elevation. 

The key fact here with Dysport, Botox, or any other procedure is to make sure the position of the eyebrow is aesthetic (many differences between male and female brows) and you're not simply doing a technique that someone just learned at a weekend course.

To raise or lower, that is the question

Decide if you prefer to raise the lower brow, or lower the higher eyebrow. If you want to try and raise the lower eyebrow, the medicine is injected just below the eyebrow itself, laterally. Each person is slightly different and upon examination your doctor will be able to advise you. Do not try to perform this procedure on yourself!

Raising the brow with Botox/Dysport

I often add small amount of botox to the lateral tail of the brow when injecting the periorbital region to obtain a subtle brow lift in this region.  It is subtle but works very well and my patients have been very happy with this result.

To raise the eyebrow, Dysport and Botox can be injected just below the tail end of the eyebrow.  You may be able to get a 1-3mm raise in your brows.

Where to inject

To get an elevation of the lateral part of the brow, you need to weaken the depressor muscles and leave the elevators intact, so you would need to inject the upper crow’s foot and place nothing in the forehead above the brow.

Botox or Dysport to raise the eyebrows

To raise the lateral (outside) part of the eyebrows, one injects a tiny amount of Dysport or Botox just under the tail (outer) end of the eyebrow. For the medial (inner) part of the eyebrow, one injects on the root of the nose (just between the eyes).

Pharmacologic eyebrow lift

A mild lift of the outer part of the brow can be achieved through the placement of Dysport or Botox in the musculature that pulls down this part of the brow, assuming you are having no other injections placed in your upper face.  Typically this placement is near the outer part of your eyebrow, but it would have to be custom tailored for your particular brow shape, musculature pattern, and orbital bony rim shape to give the maximal effect.

Dysport for eyebrow drooping

Sometimes dysport or botox is injected just under the lateral eyebrow to neutralize the orbicularis muscle ring so that the brow can raise a bit.

Using Dysport for a brow lift

Dysport is a close relative of Botox that is now available in the United States through Medicis. Like Botox, Dysport may be used to contour the face by relaxing the deeper facial muscles. These muscles are usually in the upper portion of the face. When applied appropriately, Dysport may relax the muscles that pull your brow down and cause a pleasing brow lift. Patients appreciate this rejuvenated look.
Your best bet is to work with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has a great deal of experience with fillers, Botox and the new Dysport. They will be able to review your treatment options and let you know which combination will help you meet your aesthetic goals.

Using Dysport to raise the corner of the eyebrow

Crows' feet wrinkles are caused by contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscle, which causes "squinting."

Injection of Dysport just below the tail (outer corner) of the eyebrow will weaken the downward pull of the muscle, frequently resulting in a subtle lift of the tail of the eyebrow.
