Using Botox or Dysport, it’s possible to modulate the muscles that move the eyebrows to create a temporal browlift. What this means is that the arches of the eyebrows can be raised by selectively treating the forehead and sides of the brows. The frontalis muscle, which is a thin muscle that lies along the forehead, works to raise the eyebrows. The orbicularis muscle closes the eyes and also pulls the lateral brow (sides of the eyebrow) down. By treating the orbicularis and the central frontalis muscle with Botox or Dysport, the muscle can no longer pull the brow down. This results in the arch of the brow becoming lifted and producing a temporal “browlift”.
