Botox to Lift the Borws
Brow Shaping with Botox
Brow lift with Botox Cosmetic
The distal brow can be raised 1-3 mm when Botox Cosmetic is injected in the precise area between the distal brow and the lateral canthus of the eye. This is where the muscle fibers that pull the brow down reside. Thus relaxing the muscles that pull the brow down will result in a brow lift. An unnatural brow raise (like Jack Nicholson's eye brows) is an undesired look that may sometimes happen with injection of the muscles between the brows. This look can be corrected with Botox relaxation of the forehead muscles that raise the brow. A physician with expertise in neurotoxin injections should be well versed in the art of facial shaping with Botox Cosmetic and should be able prevent or correct any undesirable effects.

Botox for the brows
I have alot of experience in botox brow raising. Ideally a small amount should be used just under the part of the brow that you want to raise. If you prefer a tall straight brow then 2 or three half unit doses each side under the brow should do the trick. There is an anatomical risk of the eye lid raising muscle to be affected as it is relatively nearby to the injection point so be aware of this as a possible complication. Hope that helps.
