Shaping of the Eyebrows with Botox

  • David F. Horne

By rebalancing the forehead and periocular muscles, Botox injections can improve the shape and position of the eyebrows. It is even possible to induce a modest “chemical brow lift” and help correct intrinsic or iatrogenic asymmetry of the eyebrows. Reports by Carruthers1 as well as Frankel and Kamer2 have shown that the majority of patients experience a modest elevation of the brow.
