3 Options for Lasting Eyebrow Enhancement

3 Options for Lasting Eyebrow Enhancement

You might focus on your eyebrows when you want to enhance your appearance. After all, your eyebrows make a bold statement and can dramatically transform your looks. Especially as we get older, our eyebrows may look more sparse and thin.

You can fill in your brows with makeup, of course. But this effort gets tedious pretty quickly, and you might be more likely to skip it some days. If you want something more permanent, plastic surgery offers options that offer lasting results. The specialists at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center explain more about the permanent options to reshape your eyebrows.

Permanent makeup

If you want to fill in your brows, one option is permanent makeup. The specialists at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center offer various permanent makeup options. 

6D Sculpture eyebrows

One option is the 6D Sculpture Eyebrows technique. This technique uses a form of tattooing to draw on more permanent eyebrows. But the advantage of this technique is that it looks subtle. Your eyebrows are drawn on one hair at a time for a very natural look. 

However, this is only semi-permanent. It doesn’t go in as deep as a regular tattoo and instead deposits the color just underneath your skin. This lasts 2-5 years, with three years being the average for most people.

Perfect eyebrow tint

Another option is the perfect eyebrow tint. This is a good choice for people with light skin and eyebrows and darken their brows with makeup. Tinting is available in three colors: blue/black, black, or brown/medium.

The tint is applied to your brows and left on for 5-7 minutes. This only lasts for 4-6 weeks and needs to be repeated for regular results.

Eyebrow design

You can make an appointment for eyebrow design as well. This treatment doesn’t require any permanent changes, but it will gradually reshape how your brows grow in. 

The shape of your eyebrows can make a significant impact on your appearance. The correct shape for your brows can open up your face and make you look more awake and alert. 

Eyelid lifts

One of the procedures you may consider is an eyelid lift, also called a blepharoplasty. This cosmetic procedure is not very invasive but produces major results. Your specialist will discuss the overall look you want to get from the procedure in a consultation.

An eyelid lift is done on an outpatient basis, so you’ll go home the same day. When you come in for an eyelid lift, you’ll get either a local or general anesthetic. Your excess skin around your eyes may be surgically removed.

When the anesthesia wears off, you’ll get your aftercare instructions and will be sent home. You’ll need someone else to drive you.

You may have some bruising and swelling after the procedure, but you can use cold compresses to reduce the swelling. You may also experience dry eyes in the days after the procedure. You can expect this bruising and swelling to go down when your surgeon removes the stitches, usually at 4-7 days after surgery.

Brow lift

An eyebrow lift is another procedure that you may want to consider. Brow lifts can give you a softer and more youthful appearance. 

A brow lift raises the skin above your eyebrows. It smoothes the lines in your forehead, erasing any appearance of looking angry or tired. 

A brow lift is also an outpatient procedure. The surgeon lifts the eyebrows and repositions during the treatment and adjusts the relevant muscles. Sometimes, this procedure is done at the same time that Botox® is administered.

You will have a bandage placed around your forehead to minimize swelling and bruising following a brow lift. After 7-10 days, your stitches will be removed. You’ll want to avoid vigorous exercise for six weeks, although you can resume light exercise after two weeks.
