Is it possible to lift the brow non-surgically?
Non-Surgical Ultrasound Brow Lift, West Malling, Tonbridge, Maidstone, Kent
Many things start to go south as we age, and our brows are no exception. If you feel that you look more tired than usual, you’re not alone, and drooping brows could be to blame. In fact, one of the biggest concerns people have about their eyes is how the lateral brow can become heavy with age, leading to hooded eyes and skin laxity under the brow. Fortunately, there is a solution – Ultrasound skin tightening \’– and it only requires one treatment and has no downtime.
What causes drooping eyebrows?
Drooping eyebrows are usually caused by age. As the muscles in the face weaken, it can cause the eyebrows to lower gradually. As well as this, our skin naturally loses collagen with age, a crucial protein that keeps our skin looking firm and youthful and gives it structure.
Sagging eyebrows, or heavy brows, make our eyes look droopy and increase our deep furrows and facial frown lines – resulting in a tired or sad appearance. Eyebrows are a defining feature of any face, so paying attention to their appearance is important.
Using Ultrasound to lift the brow
Sofwave revitalizes skin through ultrasound treatments that stimulate the new production of collagen – the protein responsible for the firmness of healthy skin. This ultrasound energy precisely passes through the skin’s surface, heating the mid-dermal tissue at just the correct depth and temperature to stimulate collagen fibre production and improve the skin’s overall appearance. This ultrasound energy causes tissue to heat up rapidly.
Once the cells in the targeted area reach a certain higher temperature, they are stimulated to produce more collagen and elastin – which consequently lifts your sagging brow and restores skin to a younger, more wrinkle-free appearance. The impacted treatment zones stimulate a healing response called neocollagenesis and neoelastogenesis, which increases and regenerates the collagen and elastin in the skin – therefore reducing fine lines and wrinkles, lifting the eyebrows, and lifting the lax skin of the submental (beneath-the-chin) and neck tissues. This means an eye lift is now possible without surgery – and the results are ground-breaking – with up to a 5mm lift!
What results can you expect?
Immediate results can be seen as soon as one week following the Sofwave treatment. The collagen regeneration process can sometimes take up to 12 weeks, so patients can expect to see ongoing improvements within the first few weeks or months after their treatment. Sofwave results are not permanent, and yearly maintenance treatments are recommended.
How does Sofwave compare to Ultherapy?
Until the release of Sofwave, Ultherapy was seen as the gold standard for non-surgical lifting and rejuvenation. Ultherapy and other lower-powered devices, such as HIFU, also use ultrasound technology, but the energy delivery is not as precise. In contrast, Sofwave releases energy at an accurate depth of 1.5mm, which represents the optimum depth to stimulate collagen and elastin fibres. This, in turn, dramatically reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and tightens and lifts the brow, face and neck.
