Can a Browlift/forehead Lift Help Minimize Smaller Lines and Pores?

In addition to hooding in my eyebrows, the botox "stretch" on the forehead always really helped conceal these other issues, but I can no longer use this product.

Some fine lines of the brow can be treated with Botox and the pores can be treated with lasers or skincare products.

NO! As Dr Aldea stated the issues are not corrected by surgery but by fillers and Botox injections. Be careful what you ask for.

A Brow Lift will NOT generally affect Skin Texture

A brow lift is intended to lift sagging eye brows and "open up" the eyes. The operation is not intended to and will not change the texture of the forehead skin.

Botulinum toxin may help diminish the activity of sweat glands and therefore theoretically diminish the size of the pores. Relaxing the forehead muscles may also improve the fine lines caused by excessive muscle activity. A forehead lift will generally elevate the position of the brows. IT will not diminish sweat gland activity and unless a frontalis lipectomy is completed will not eliminate muscle activity unless your brows are so low that that excess skin and hooding causes you to compensate by subconsciously elevated your brow.
