Botox can be used for a subtle browlift if placed precisely. The key is understanding how the frontalis muscles work with the brow depressors (corrugators, procerus, depressor supercilli) to position the brows. I find one or two units to the depressor supercilli muscles is important as part of this treatment.
There are several muscles which depress (lower) the brow, including the orbiculari oculi, the corrugator supercilii, and the procerus. These muscles are commonly treated to soften the crow's feet and the frown lines, respectively. Selective treatment of these muscles will give a subtle overall "lift" to the overall height of the brows (albeit only slightly in some).
Injecting the correct amount of units in the proper area can help raise your eyebrows, I suggest you seek a highly skilled injector, injecting in the wrong area or applying too many units can also cause droopy brows
Botox cannot help elevate the overall eyebrow.
It would only work to raise the brow laterally, as to slightly lift the corners
of the brow. In order to elevate the entire brow, an endoscopic brow lift would

From your comments it seems as though you have ptosius or sagging of your entire brow and if that is the case botox would be a waste.I would go to your plastic surgeon and have him evaluate you.
Yes Botox can be used to raised the brow slightly if injected in the proper locations. However, if the forehead is injected, typically the middle brow will lower and the lateral brow will raise. I suggested seeking an expert if you are looking for browshaping/contouring. Best, Dr. Emer.
Please see a qualified physician to discuss this issue. A proper examination and discussion of all treatment options should occur.
Botox injected slightly below an eyebrow can, in some cases, result in mild elevation of the brows.
Botox can be used to lift your eyebrows. This requires a skilled injector. I recommend that you consult a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist. Happy 4th!
The key to the usefulness of botox for the eyebrows is understanding the action of the different muscles and their effect on eyebrow placement. It can be placed to raise the brow overall, but requires careful judgement on the part of the injector. This use of botox is considered off-label and requires increased expertise from the injector.
