Do You Need Upper Face Rejuvenation?

Over the years, facial expressions can leave their mark on your upper face in the form of drooping eyebrows and wrinkles—around the eyes, between the brows, and on the forehead. You may even look stern, sad, or unapproachable, although you feel happy and relaxed. This is a very common concern for our patients, and very treatable with BOTOX®, Dysport®, and XEOMIN®—injectable neuromodulators Dr. Mabrie and his associates use at our San Francisco, CA, Bay Area practice to restore a refreshed-looking upper face. 

4 Problem Areas, 1 Solution – Getting In the Zone 

The Upper Face Zones

  • Problem 1: Frowning Wrinkles
  • Problem 2: Low Eyebrows
  • Problem 3: Crow's Feet
  • Problem 4: Forehead Wrinkles

Our Solution: Components of the Upper Face

The specialists at Mabrie Facial Institute are masters at using neuromodulators to alleviate signs of aging in the different areas of the upper face zone for a total rejuvenation that helps you look awake, energetic, and more youthful.  

Frowning Wrinkles

These are the vertical lines between the eyebrows, sometimes called “elevens.” These glabellar lines can cause an angry appearance, sometimes described as a permanent scowl. Our team uses neuromodulators to disable the 3 strong muscles that cause these lines.

Low Eyebrows

While heavy, sagging brows tend to convey fatigue, anger, and other negative emotions, most people don’t want overly arched or lifted brows, either. BOTOX can be used to elevate the brows, creating the effect of a subtle brow lift. Our highly skilled injectors use BOTOX to disable the brow depressor muscles, letting the brow elevator muscles naturally elevate the brow. This opens up the eye area and creates a rejuvenated appearance.

Forehead Wrinkles

Sometimes called “worry lines,” horizontal forehead lines or furrows create worry for many of our patients. They are caused by the skin folding that occurs when the brows are elevated. Our team uses a conservative approach in treating forehead wrinkles, as aggressive use of BOTOX in these muscles can produce drooping eyebrows.

Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are wrinkles at the corner of the eyes caused by folding of the skin with smiling or squinting. They can be charming or they can add years to your look. Neuromodulators reduce these wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscle under the skin in this area.

Your Upper Face Rejuvenation Procedure 

We always take the time to educate you about our process and about the products we will use in your procedure. You will be an integral part of developing a treatment plan, and your provider will be sure to answer all your questions during the process. 

If at your initial appointment, we agree that upper face rejuvenation is right for you, we will usually proceed with treatment immediately. We will have you wash your face with an antiseptic cleanser to prevent infection, followed by “before” photos and marking the injection sites.

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.

Upper Face Rejuvenation FAQs 

How long do BOTOX results last?

BOTOX and other neuromodulators produce results that typically last about 3 to 4 months. However, studies have shown that over time, the duration of results increases with regularly scheduled treatments. 


Does BOTOX hurt?

The needle used for neuromodulator injections is very tiny, and most patients report feeling only a slight pinch when it penetrates the skin.


How much does BOTOX cost?

The cost of your BOTOX, Dysport, or XEOMIN treatment can range from $360 to $1,000 per area, and depends largely on how much product is required for your treatment. Our consultation fee is $300. 


Is BOTOX safe?

BOTOX Cosmetic been FDA approved for the treatment of wrinkles since 2002. BOTOX has actually been used medically since the 1960s for conditions like muscle spasms and misalignment of the eyes (strabismus). Additionally, the extremely low volumes of neurotoxin used for cosmetic purposes make the risk of negative health effects practically zero. These botulinum-based products have a very extensive safety record. You can learn more by visiting our comprehensive BOTOX page. 


Will my forehead look surprised or tight after BOTOX?

The surprised, tight look is typically the result of an aggressive surgical brow lift. The beauty of using injectables is that your results should look natural and subtle. Our team takes a conservative approach to upper face rejuvenation, with the understanding that we can always “build” on your results at future touch-up appointments. This is all part of our unique treatment process, Illumination 360°.

Never having had fillers before I was a little nervous for my first appointment. However, Dr. Mabrie and his entire staff quickly put me at ease with their smiling faces, thorough explanations and patience! I could tell that they truly cared. After my treatment I relaxed in their gorgeous Lux Lounge before leaving. The next day I received a phone call from the office’s medical staff checking in on me to see how I was feeling. I’ve never felt more taken care of, and I absolutely love my results!

She explained the products, procedure and aftercare clearly, which put me at ease. The procedure was painless and quick. I am so thrilled with my results. They are so natural looking and I can’t wait to come back and be refreshed. The entire staff was very welcoming and gracious. Dr. Mabrie was amazing and is a true artist.

Where do I begin with how amazing the experience is to be at Dr. Mabrie’s office and to have treatment with such an outstanding doctor?! The moment you step out of the elevator into the office, the ambiance and vibe is so modern and trendy - it makes you feel like you are VIP! His staff has wonderful customer service and are very accommodating. Dr. Mabrie has the best eye to assess everyone’s face. My favorite part of his treatment plan is that he sees you as a whole and doesn’t compare you to anyone else but your old before picture to give you rockstar results! I’m so in love with my results and will only trust Dr. Mabrie & his super talented PA Kimberly Rolley with my face! Would definitely recommend if you are considering facial dermal filler or Botox. 🙂

Words that come to mind when I think of my results after seeing Dr. Mabrie's : elated, overjoyed, incredible, unbelievable! I could go on forever! My under eyes (dark, hollow, always looked tired) had always been an insecurity of mine. During my treatment with Dr. Mabrie, I received a thorough facial examination along with a personalized treatment plan to best help me achieve my aesthetic goals. Dr. Mabrie is a true artist! My results are so natural and the process couldn't have been easier. The sexy modern office, gorgeous SF views, LUX Lounge and phenomenal customer service are top notch. Thank you Dr. Mabrie for helping me feel beautiful!
