As we age, first signs of wrinkles show on the forehead. Endoscope forehead lift is a procedure designed to remove wrinkles by lifting the loose forehead and eyebrows without leaving visible scarring.
Areas around the eyes lose its skin elasticity and the muscles at the first signs of aging, consequently developing droopy eyebrows and forehead wrinkles. The muscles that hold the upper eyelid and forehead become weak and loose, forming deeper wrinkles to appear.
Young people who have deep frown lines due to ptosis symptom of eyes may also benefit from the forehead endoscope lift.
Therefore, the endoscopic forehead lift is much more effective than botox injection, as it addresses not only forehead but also the droopy eyebrows and upper eyelid areas.
The procedure requires 3-4 small incisions (about 1-2cm) hidden in the hair and leaves no visible scar. This procedure can lift everything from the hairline to the eyebrows. It tightens and smooths the entire forehead while lifting the eyebrow area which “opens up” the entire upper face. Eyebrow shape and asymmetry can be addressed with this type of lift. Following the procedure there will be some bruising and swelling. Patients are usually comfortable returning to their normal routine activities in about 2 weeks.
