Lateral Brow Lift

Technique 1

• One injection point approximately 0.5 cm above the orbital rim (Figs. 5.24 and 5.28)

- Dysport: 10-12 U per point

Technique 2

- Botox: mm. corrugatores: 3-5 U per point, m. procerus: 3-5 U, medial m. frontalis fibers : 2-6 U (two points)

- Dysport: mm. corrugatores: 10-15 U per point, m. procerus: 10-15 U, medial m. frontalis fibers 6-15 U (two points)

Technique 3

- Three to five injection points approximately 0.5 cm above the orbital rim (Figs. 5.26-5.33)

- Dysport: 3 U per point

The results may vary from patient to patient and the purpose of eyebrow lifting should always be taken into consideration. Technique 1 is suitable for mild lateral eyebrow lifting when the opponent elevating lateral fibers of the m. frontalis are strong enough to promote the lifting effect with the antagonist blocking (Fig. 5.34a,b). Technique 2 presents a good performance when only the lateral aspect of the eyebrow needs elevation and there are not many horizontal fibers in the forehead, only in the midline (Fig. 5.35a,b). Technique 3 is undoubtedly the most appropriate for medial, intermediate and lateral eyebrow lifting, but must be conducted only by experienced injectors (Fig. 5.36a,b).
