I thought it was somewhere above the brow, but I read recently that it's in the crow's feet area.

Botox brow shaping
As far as how many units may be needed, this also depends on which part of the brow you want to correct. For the inner brows, you may consider ~20 units (same as the frown line treatment). For the middle or outer brow, I generally use up to 5 units on each side.
You may also want to consider adding fillers to shape and raise the brow. Combining the two products can work synergistically together.
Brow lift with Botox
The location of the brow on your face is a function of the muscles above the brow contracting and raising the brow and the muscles below contracting and lowering the brow. Your provider should be able to discuss with you what type of brow position you would prefer and place the product appropriately to attain the optimal result.
I typically treat the forehead area conservatively to keep a natural look and almost always place several units under the tail of the brow when treating the crows feet area to attain a subtle and natural appearing lift to the lateral brow.

Botox injected into brow depressors creates eyebrow lift
There are five depressors of the eyebrow:
1) procerus (muscle the pulls down on the brows, creating a horizontal crease at the top of the nose
2) R and L corrugator (muscles that pull the brows inward and downward, creating the 11 lines)
3) R and L obicularis oculi (muscle that encircles the eye, allowing it to close tightly)
To lift the medial part of the brow, inject the glabella, procerus, and corrugators (also know as the glabella).
To lift the lateral aspect of the brow, inject the ocibularis oculi. This can be done above the brow or below it, since the muscle stretches encircles the eye and often extends above the brow.

Best Place For Botox Brow Lift
It may seem counter-intuitive that paralyzing facial muscles can lift your brow, but this is exactly how Botox works. Our faces have muscles that pull in opposing directions, so in the case of the brow the idea is to paralyze the muscles that pull downward while leaving the ones that lift the brow untouched.

Get a browlift with Botox/Dysport
Great question. You can get a browlift usually with Botox/Dysport depending on where it is injected. To get a lateral browlift you would treat the crow's feet area as well as a little under the lateral aspect of the eyebrow. To get a medal lift you could do a typical glabella treatment. Please understand that you would diminish the results if you also has part of the forehead treated because that is the muscle that raises the eyebrow and if you relax that muscle you probably won't get the brow lifted. Good Luck.

Botox Brow Lift
Thank you for your question. A Botox brow lift can be accomplished by carefully injecting the outer eye muscle (orbicularis oculi) near the brow tail that pulls the outside of the brow downwards. The amount of Botox depends on each individual patient, but on average 2-5 units per side is usually required. All the best.
Lifting with toxin
This is all about balance. There are muscles that depress the brow (corrugators, orbicularis and procerus) and there are muscles that lift the brow (frontalis). You can google images of all of these.
So we use botox to paralyze the muscles that depress the brow and this then allows the brow elevators to compensate and give a slight elevation.
Hope this helps.
Best of luck,

Lifting the brows with botulinum toxin (botox, xeomin or dysport) is done by reducing the strength of the downward pulling muscles. That may include the muscles between the eyebrows, those over the eyebrows and even those at the end of the eyebrows by the crow's feet. Where and how much to inject is dependent on your facial anatomy. That is why it is important to get your evaluation by a board certified core cosmetic physician (dermatologist, plastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon, oculoplastic surgeon).
I hope that answer was helpful. Best wishes.
