How to get rid of angry looking brows?

I have assymmetrical and angry looking brows which means i hate taking pics front on. Is there a way to only life the space in between my two eyebrows so that I can create a more straighter and friendlier brow?

Thank you for your question. Botox is used cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. It is very difficult to give you advice without any photos. However, Botox can be injected between the brows to address vertical lines when you frown. This also helps lift the inner brows. I recommend a consultation with an expert to determine the best treatment plan for you.

Thank you for your inquiry. Botox or Dysport are definitely great option to help with your situation. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon that offers Botox or Dysport injections and preferably does them him/herself. Typically results will last 3 - 4 months. Price will vary. Best of Luck!

Dysport and Botox are FDA approved and indicated for lines and wrinkles in the frown lines. Seek a certified and experienced injector for best results. Best, Dr. ALDO

Dear sandstorm90:

Botox works wonderfully well to balance out asymmetrical brows rendering them less angry and friendlier.  All the best.

Thank you for your question.  Typically a combination of Botox to relax the muscles that create the furrow and filler to replace volume will create a more youthful and less angry appearance.

Thank you for sharing your question.  The most common area for Botox placement is the area between the eyes that can give people an "angry" look.  Botox will prevent your brows from furrowing, smoothing the area and improving eyebrow spacing and wrinkle formation.  See an ASPS plastic surgeon for a consultation, they will best be able to treat you.

Angry brows can be corrected with Botox

The angry brow is related to medial brow ptosis. To correct this, the glabella needs to be injected but in a different way. It needs to include the depressor supercilii muscle as well. The medial corrugators should be injected low and deeply so as to prevent frontalis weakness in the midline. This will help lift the medial brows. Also, it might not be in your best interest to lift the lateral brow so as not to contribute to the downward sloping brow.  You must pick an experienced injector or you will not be happy.

It is common for patients to seek treatment for “appearing angry” when they aren’t and for asymmetry of the eyebrows. Usually Botox will help significantly, but without seeing photos, it is hard to say if more would be needed to correct your issue. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine the best course of treatment for you.

There are multiple factors in evaluation of optimal brow shape and position in an individual including age, gender, thickness and quality of skin and even ethnicity. For "angry brows" nonsurgical modalities include Botox and fillers that can paricularly help with reducing the hyperactivity of muscles in between the eyebrows and even subtly fill the deep grooves. For more long term and robust changes however, there are a variety of surgical techniques available in brow lifting. The choice obviously goes back again to the individual factors mentioned above.

This is tough to answer without pictures. Botox in combination with well-placed fillers should be able to soften the "angry" looking brows. I recommend getting a formal evaluation with a cosmetic dermatologist. Best. Dr. Emer
