During my research for lectures and presentations it has become clear that there are certain features that are important for facial beauty.
Overall beauty is difficult to define, however it also depends on the proportions and harmony of facial features. The science of beauty is showing us that there are 7 areas which make a face beautiful. In the previous discussions we talked about the skin and eyes and techniques to improve the appearance.
Area 4: The Eyebrow
This is an area of the face that has a lot of significance in that it can demonstrate emotion and sexual gender. The shape position and movements of the brow are highly effective non-verbal communication signals.
Brow-lifting and reshaping can be performed many techniques and it it important to discuss the procedures and the outcomes with me before making a decision.
This is an area that I have been treating for several years and have also researched the science behind treatments that will improve the overall appearance of the eye and eyebrow region.
One aspect to understand is that everyone has has different requirements, also the requirements change with age. Not all of these need to be addressed with surgery, many non-surgical procedures and treatments can help and these can be discussed during our consultation. It is therefore important that you have a proper examination and analysis of your face before considering any particular treatment programme.
There are many things that I now recommend to improve the area around the eyebrow – this does not need to be anything too expensive or invasive. I generally break it down into the following areas:
Topical care – involves using a skin care programme. I suggest Neostrata Intensive Eye Therapy as a topical treatment. This is no more costly than a normal over the counter range of cosmetics bought at department stores. We have a range of different treatment programmes from leading skin technology companies that will be used specifically for your particular skin.
Injectable treatments: With recent developments in the science of injectables we can now offer treatments to lift the eyebrow by either relaxing the muscles that pull the brow down or use dermal fillers to lift the ligaments and raise the brow. It is also possible to produce a brow reshaping with the use of a combination of fillers and muscle relaxation treatment. For the muscle relaxation treatments we use the world’s thinnest needle (‘Invisible Needle’) – this causes very little to no pain during the injection and we also use anaesthetic to reduce the pain of the treatments. We use a cannula to reduce the discomfort and reduce bruising.
Surgical Treatments: A minimally invasive brow “lifting / fixation” procedure may be performed this will allow your brow to be lifted and open out the eye region. We can use threads or specific “Endotine” Fixation devices to achieve the brow lift with minimal down time.
Before embarking on any treatment programme it is very important that you discus your concerns. Together we can develop a personalized treatment programme specifically for you. If you would like discover more about my recommended treatments please contact my PA to arrange a consultation.
