An ideal height and arch to the eyebrow have profound effects upon the forehead, brow, and eyes.
An arch to the brow is one of the distinguishing characteristics between men and women. A flat brow is not just masculine, but it can give the impression of anger or intensity. People elevate their brow in an effort to appear calm and approachable, and restoring that arch creates wonders in both objective appearance and in the emotions conveyed.
When a brow is low, the eye looks tired and excess skin can be present in the crow’s feet area. When the brow is in the ideal position, the entire upper eyelid looks better and any hanging skin at the sides of the corners of the eyelids will be reduced.
When the brows are low, the body automatically compensates by using the forehead muscles to raise the brows. The result is horizontal lines across the forehead. Once the forehead no longer has to raise the brow, these lines improve. Botox™ can weaken the forehead muscles and reduce the lines, but if the brow is weak then there is no way to elevate them and the eyes look droopy.
A browlift must not be overdone. The brow does drop with time, but not nearly as much as plastic surgeons typically elevate them.
