To raise or lower, that is the question

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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!

Where Should Dysport Be Injected to Raise Eyebrow Corner?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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.

Where should Dysport be injected to raise the corner of the brow?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

To provide a lateral brow lift, Dysport should be injected into the crow's feet area, particularly the upper portion of the crow's feet (lateral orbicularis oculi muscle). Injectors should also avoid injection the lateral (outer) portion of the forehead, because the frontalis muscle in the forehead elevates the brow, causing the horizontal wrinkles that appear with contraction of this muscle.

All the best,

Dysport to raise brows

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Placing Dysport or Botox or Xeomin near the tail of the eyebrow or just above the tail of the eyebrow will allow the brow to 'raise'.  Usually 1-3mm if what is noticeable.  How much elevation has to do with the strength of the muscle that pulls the brow down, the activity of the forehead muscle that pulls the brow up, and the heaviness of the brow itself.

Raising the brow with Botox/Dysport

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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.
