Have you had a Botox brow lift?

I have my 11's and a bit in crows feet but I'm thinking about having a slight brow lift.
My biggest worry is Spock brows. Has anyone got any experience, did it make a difference and would you recommend for 50 something?

A little bump. I've been reading a few articles and it looks like it's worth a go?

I got him to put a wee bit in when doing my forehead - not noticeable though, so I won’t bother next time

Thank you. I suppose I'd only want a little to avoid the funny brows but then it wouldn't work.

I first had it done when I was 55. It’s been three years now and I wouldn't be without it. I have it done every three/four months and it lifts my otherwise straight brows into a nice natural arch and opens up my sleepy looking eyes.

I go to the Dr Leah clinic in Moorgate London and over the last three years I’ve had three different doctors do it. On one occasion the doctor was a little distracted and thought she was injecting for forehead wrinkles (which I don’t have) so the result was disappointing but every other time I’ve been delighted with the effect.

Yes, and I love it. I don’t look spok like at all.

I had it done yesterday, obviously I'll have to wait a while to see if it's worked. The Dr was surprised that I was worried about pointy brows, he said it's vey unlikely.

I would be really grateful if those of you who have had it done, loved the results and are based in London, could let me know your Dr.'s name. I've only tried botox once, about a year ago and it was a complete waste of money. Unfortunately didn't lift my brows, instead felt my brows were pushed down even further. I have been really hesitant to try again ever since, it's just too costly for a trial and error approach and would much rather rely on personal recommendations. Thanks so much!

#andska my first experience of Botox was the same - my brows were kind of pushed down and together. I put it down to a crap practicioner. I had some concerned commentsgrin

Next experience was better but a bit too subtle. I'm going to have it done again now as my forehead seems to be crumbling at a rate of knots. shock

Any recommendations in North West for this please?

I have it done every time I get Botox. (Usually every 6 months for the last 4 years or so but not had any for a year because of COVID) and I always say do the brow lift but honestly it never seems to do anything.

The time before last I had Botox done (about 18 months ago) the practitioner suggested I have it done in my neck too. I agreed but omg the ongoing sensation was awful like my neck was numb and weird twitching for months. I declined it at my next appointment!
I'm early 40s in the south west.

I did look a bit Spock like 2 weeks afterwards (normal settling in period where the toxin gets to work) but 8 weeks later it looks great.
I only have mine done to stop myself looking tired. And even this time no one noticed!

I'm 50 and the doctor put a top up because the first bit didn't take.
I do pay £250 for mine and it's a doctor who does it

Is your doctor in London?
