& The Attractive Face
A smooth, unlined forehead is a hallmark of youth and attractiveness. But a lifetime of expressions leaves its mark in the form of vertical frown lines and horizontal forehead furrows. These can cause you to look stern, sad – even unapproachable – although you feel happy and relaxed.
Dr. Mabrie is a master of injectable treatments to alleviate this unfortunate side effect of aging. In many cases, the skillful use of Dysport® or BOTOX® Cosmetic at his San Francisco office does the trick, taking years off of your appearance and bringing back your youthful brow.
In the case of deeper lines, Dr. Mabrie may suggest one of the many dermal filler options he offers to bring back the smoother looking skin that we associate with youth and attractiveness. For many women and men, this small change makes an enormous difference when it comes to a pleasant, attractive expression.
While heavy, sagging brows tend to convey fatigue, anger and other negative emotions, overly arched or lifted brows can have a similarly off–putting effect. Studies show that softly arched brows – positioned to frame the eyes and complement them – are a key component of attractiveness.
Dr. Mabrie keeps this in mind when he is helping his patients to determine their ideal brow position. For those whose brows have just begun to droop and may be detracting from the eyes, he may use injectables to create a slight lift in the brow.
When the outer portion of the brow sags, overshadowing the eyes and creating an aged appearance, Dr. Mabrie performs a lateral (or temporal) brow lift at his San Francisco practice. This procedure can open up the eye area and restore a fresh, engaging appearance that can change the way others perceive you.
