When conducted by a qualified medical practitioner, this procedure is incredibly effective and safe, resulting in a refreshed, more youthful appearance.

What are the differences between a non-surgical and surgical brow lift?
Both procedures aim to elevate and reshape the eyebrows to produce a more youthful appearance.
The primary difference between a non-surgical brow lift and a surgical brow lift is that the effects of a surgical brow lift are more permanent and long-lasting. A surgical brow lift involves the surgical removal of extra skin and fat from the forehead region.
A non-surgical brow lift is a temporary but repeatable aesthetic treatment that involves the injection of botulinum toxin and/or filler to elevate and contour the brow.
Miss Elizabeth Hawkes will assess your suitability for a non-surgical brow lift versus a surgical brow lift at your initial consultation.
