Brow Ptosis (Droopy Eyebrow)

Are your eyebrows starting to droop or sag? Does this cause you to look tired, sad or angry? Consult Dr. Margo Weishar, our double board-certified expert in lifting and rejuvenating droopy eyebrows. She can help you regain a youthful, refreshed appearance with non-surgical treatment in New York and Philadelphia.

The Science Behind Droopy Eyebrows

Brow ptosis, or a droopy brow, can significantly impact facial aesthetics and expressions. This condition typically arises from the natural loss of skin elasticity due to aging or genetics. Seeking professional dermatological care is paramount to safely and effectively addressing this concern. Dr. Weishar’s approach to resolving drooping brows often incorporates the strategic use of Botox, which relaxes overactive muscles contributing to the drooping effect. Patients can expect natural-looking results and minimal recovery time.

Brow Ptosis: Causes and Risk Factors

Brow ptosis is primarily the result of the gradual loss of skin elasticity as we age. Genetics can also influence the way your brows age. Understanding these underlying causes and potential risk factors is crucial for effective treatment and prevention. Chronic exposure to harmful UV rays from the sun can speed up skin aging, potentially exacerbating brow ptosis. Lifestyle factors such as smoking and a lack of proper skin care may also contribute to the condition. Understanding these causes and risk factors is crucial for the treatment and prevention of droopy eyebrows.

Symptoms and Clinical Presentation

A droopy eyebrow manifests as a sagging or lowered position of the eyebrow, creating a tired or sad appearance. The extent of drooping can vary from subtle to more pronounced. Explore our image slider for visual representations of drooping brow conditions.

Drooping Brow Diagnosis and Treatment

Our dermatologists excel in diagnosing and treating drooping brows. We offer two effective treatment options to cater to your specific needs.

Botox Treatment

Botox injections provide a non-surgical solution by relaxing specific muscles, and temporarily lifting the brows. This quick and virtually painless procedure yields noticeable results.

Daxxify Treatment

Daxxify is an innovative option we provide to stimulate collagen production, naturally firming and rejuvenating the brow area over time. It’s ideal for those seeking a gradual, more natural-looking improvement with longer-lasting results.

Prevention, Risk and Self-Care

Beyond treatment, our experts guide you on preventive measures and self-care routines to maintain your results. This may include sun protection strategies, personalized skincare recommendations, and lifestyle adjustments. Additionally, it’s essential to highlight that the choice of a skilled and experienced professional for brow rejuvenation treatments is of utmost importance.

Some cosmetic treatments, such as Botox, when performed by an inexperienced practitioner, can carry a risk of unintended side effects, including brow drooping. An inexperienced hand may misapply the treatment, leading to an unwanted drooping effect or an unnatural appearance. At Springhouse Dermatology, our team of experts has a proven track record of delivering precise and satisfying outcomes, minimizing the risk of undesirable side effects like brow drooping, and correcting the undesirable outcomes of treatments done elsewhere.
