Do You Need Upper Face Contouring?
You don’t have to have wrinkles to benefit from neuromodulators like BOTOX® and Dysport®. At Mabrie Facial Institute in San Francisco, we often use them in younger patients who want to look their absolute best and preserve their youthful features. Our expert injectors understand how to harness the power of these products to create a smooth, serene forehead; ideal brow shape and positioning; enhanced eye shape and size; and a pleasant appearance free from frown lines.

Our Solution: Components of an Attractive Upper Face
The experts at Mabrie Facial Institute understand all the subtle and not-so-subtle characteristics that contribute to an attractive upper face, and they know how to strategically apply injectables to create the ideal contours. Keep in mind, individual results will vary based on physical characteristics and how your body interacts with neuromodulators.
Real Patient Examples
What can be addressed with upper face contouring?
Horizontal Forehead Wrinkles
Forehead furrows—the lines that run horizontally across the forehead whenever you lift your eyebrows—are caused by contraction of the frontalis muscle. Vertical lines between the eyebrows—called “elevens” or glabellar lines—form when you frown or concentrate, and can make your face look angry. Neuromodulators can treat both of these concerns for a more pleasant expression.
Brow Position & Shape
Neuromodulators can help individuals to have symmetrical, more attractively shaped and positioned brows. If your brows are too low, you can look sleepy or stern. Brows that are too high look artificial, and can create a permanently surprised expression. Studies show that softly arched brows—positioned to frame the eyes and complement them—are considered attractive. For men, the ideal brow position is a little lower and less arched than for women.
These are the wrinkles on the corners of the eyes that appear when we smile or squint our eyes. They are formed by a portion of the thin muscle (orbicularis oculi) that encircles the entire eye, and careful application of a neuromodulator can smooth these lines.
Eye Shape & Size
Larger, more “open” eyes are considered more attractive, and we can achieve this look for some individuals using neuromodulators.
Your Upper Face Contouring Procedure
At your initial appointment, we will discuss all of your concerns and goals, and we will thoroughly evaluate your makeup-free face from multiple angles, in all different lighting. We will work with you to develop a treatment plan that reveals your optimal beauty. This is all part of our unique Illumination 360° approach to facial contouring and rejuvenation.
Once we have taken a series of medical photos to document your treatment baseline, we will proceed to treatment. Neuromodulators are introduced with a very fine needle into specific facial muscles. The product blocks nerve signals to the muscle, and over approximately 4 to 10 days, the muscle will relax.

Consider Adding These Enhancers
Volume loss in the temples causes a gaunt or skeletal appearance that ages you. This is a quick fix with fillers.
A little filler in the forehead goes a long way towards creating a youthful, radiant face.
Careful placement of filler along the upper eyelids brightens and defines the eye area.
