Awaken Your Look
Has your face taken on a sad or sleepy expression with age that doesn’t match how you feel inside? It’s often the eyebrows that create the illusion of fatigue that ages us. Eyebrows accentuate and frame the eyes, and their shape and positioning impact the appearance of the whole face. The eyebrows play a large role in how others perceive us, as their movement and positioning communicate different emotions. While the medial brow does not change much over time, the lateral brow or “tail” of the eyebrow, begins to move downward resulting in brow ptosis that can cause a sleepy or sad appearance. Fortunately, at Mabrie Facial Institute in the San Francisco Bay Area, we can rejuvenate your brows and restore an alert, refreshed look—all without surgery.
What’s Going On?
There are several causes for age-related sagging and volume loss of the lateral brow. Bone resorption in this area causes a lack of skeletal support under the brow, causing it to droop. Additionally, fat and soft tissue atrophy, resulting in volume loss in this area. The orbital retaining ligament that normally holds up the skin and underlying tissue of the brow becomes lax, causing the tissue to sag.
Our Solution: Lateral Brow Rejuvenation
Lateral brow rejuvenation can help you regain the brow contours that help you look more rested, refreshed, and alert. To restore shape and volume to the lateral brow, we layer dermal filler beneath it, giving the brow a subtle lift and projection. It is important to complete this treatment in stages, as too much filler at once will spread outwardly rather than build upward. Treating the lateral brow with dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® is an advanced procedure that requires knowledge of anatomy and experience with treating this area.
Your Brow Rejuvenation Procedure
Lateral brow rejuvenation is typically staged across 2 or more appointments so that we can layer the filler and create beautiful, natural-looking contours. At your first appointment, our team will discuss your goals and concerns and put together your personalized treatment plan. Then we carefully administer the first layer of filler.
We schedule the refinement appointment for 1 to 3 months later. At this point, all swelling has resolved, and we layer on additional filler only where it is needed.

What are the risks of filler injections around the eyes?
The biggest risk with filler injections around the eyes is vascular occlusion—when an artery is compressed or blocked by filler. This rare complication can lead to tissue necrosis (death) or even blindness. At MFI, our team is made up of highly qualified Physician Assistants and an experienced facial plastic surgeon, meaning they have exceptional understanding of facial anatomy and how to avoid injection danger zones. Signs of vascular occlusion present right away, and the hyaluronic acid fillers we use in this area can be quickly dissolved with a product called Hylenex® which we keep on hand for your safety.
Does lateral brow rejuvenation with fillers hurt?
No one can promise injectable treatments without any discomfort, but at MFI, we go the extra mile to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed during your treatment. We can use numbing cream and lidocaine (local anesthetic) injections prior to your fillers so that you feel very little. Additionally, the fillers come pre-mixed with anesthetic to enhance your comfort.
