Brow lifting repositions and rejuvenates a tired or dropped brow. Performed under local anaesthetic, this treatment usually involves a combination of both filler and threads being used to add volume and increase skin tension in the area above your eyes and to provide a mechanical lift to tissues that have become stretched and have dropped with age.
The result is a natural, refreshed and younger looking brow and face, and improved symmetry in the forehead and eyebrow areas.
Disclaimer: Please be aware that results and benefits may vary from patient to patient taking into consideration factors such as age, lifestyle and medical history.

How does this treatment work?
A brow lift is performed under local anaesthetic. Filler is injected into specific areas of your skin, whilst threads are inserted beneath the skins surface via a tiny hole made with a needle, through which a blunt cannula containing the thread is passed.
The filler is then gently massaged by Dr Sophie to create the desired shape and contour of the brow. In some cases you may also be asked to massage or mould this filler at home, depending on the precise treatment undertaken.
What happens during my treatment?
You will be lying down throughout the treatment, usually with your head slightly raised. Local anaesthetic may be injected. Dr Sophie will also draw on your face to highlight specific areas for treatment. A small needle hole will be made prior to threads being inserted.
Will I feel any pain or side effects?
You may experience some swelling, bruising and/or mild discomfort after treatment. Dr Sophie may advise that painkillers should be taken, usually for 24 hours after treatment.
Who is this treatment suitable for?
Anyone aged 18 or over.
