Botox can help

Botox is a good nonsurgical option for lifting droopy eyebrows. Results last a few months.

Best non-surgical method of brow lift.

the best non-surgical method of raising one or both brows is to use Botox to weaken the brow depressor, and a filler such as Restylane to plump the brow giving a lifting effect.

Non-surgical Method of Elevating One Eyebrow

The most prudent method of raising a brow non-surgically is with Botox or similar neurotoxin. The effect will last only 3-4 months, but can be repeated.

Correcting Brow Asymmetry without surgery

The Best Method for Correcting Brow Asymmetry without surgery would involve using Botox, Dysport or Xeomin,  a muscle paralyzing substance that is injected into or near facial muscles, in this case a portion of the muscle that pulls the brow down (obicularis occuli muscle) by a doctor or nurse injector to weaken or prevent it from working for a period of months.

It may seem counter-intuitive that paralyzing facial muscles can lift your brow, but this is exactly how the above botulinum toxin medications work. 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.
Treatment usually lasts about 3-4 months.

Ultherapy could also be considered. It is an ultrasonic treatment to tighten the skin and the company touts that it raises brows. It is a new procedure and is unclear how efficacious  this treatment is.

Best Non-surgical Method of Elevating One Eyebrow

The easiest method of raising a brow non-surgically is with a neurotoxin such as Botox. The effect will last only 3-4 months, however. If you repeat the treatment every three months for about a year, you can then go to every 4-5 months or even longer as the muscle pulls the brow down will atrophy. The opposite brow can also be lowered with a neurotoxin if preferable.

Another way, if you are a candidate, is with a filler injected under and above the brow if you have lost volume in that area. Your plastic surgeon can determine if this would help you.

Botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin [Botox, Dysport, Xeomin] can selectively weaken the muscles that pull the eyelid down and in effect raise the eyebrow in a subtle fashion. Make sure you find an experienced injector.

Best of luck

Unilateral brow elevation with no surgery

The option of using a neuromodulator such as Botox is a great way to correct minor brow asymmetries. But the results are temporary. Another option is to use a skin tightening/lifting device such as Ultherapy which has been FDA approved for that procedure with about 1 mm elevation result that may last between 1 -2 years which is longer then the 4 months of Botox.


Good LucK

The best way to non-surgically raise your eyebrows are with Botox

Botox works by relaxing muscles. By using it in the tail of the brow, the muscles that pull the eyebrows down are relaxed. The forehead muscles then raise the brow by pulling un-opposed. The reults are variable from person to person and not as predictable as Botox for areas like the frown lines and forehead lines. But, complications are rare so it's worth a try.

Nonsurgical lifting of one brow

Botox is your best bet. However, it is much easier to lower the other brow than to raise the brow that is low .
