Gravity and ageing affects the brow area by causing the brows to move down – when you reach your 40s or 50s, you may notice a difference in the position of your eyebrows compared to where they used to be.
According to the Cranley Clinic, your brow should be positioned just above your orbital or eyebrow bone in a raised arch. When brows droop or sag, you may notice a few more lines across your forehead and some laxity on your upper eyelids too, as brows, forehead and upper eyelids are all connected.
A good practitioner can also reverse a tired, sad or angry appearance and improve the appearance of the forehead, as well as diffuse facial lines and creases.

Fox Eyes LiftWant to get on board with the fox eyes beauty trend that’s taken celebrity culture by storm? This tweakment will give you coveted almond-shaped eyes with a naturally lifted brow tail. At Vie Aesthetics, the Fox Eyes Lift is a variation of the brow lift but uses a specific thread lift technique; the threads are inserted so as to lift the outer eye corners towards the temples, which elongates the eyes and opens up the eyelids. Results last around a year and can be as subtle or dramatic as required.

Thames Brow LiftAnother practitioner using a bespoke approach is Dr Anna Hemming, who utilises the up lifting brow muscles to create a brow lift. By reducing the down-pulling muscles around the eye and frown area, the elevating muscles continue to lift the brow up; further lift can be created by replacing the fat which has been lost immediately above the brow. Placing dermal filler into this area the depression above the brow is elevated, opening up the brow area further. This can be combined with anti-wrinkle injections, Profhilo, radio frequency, HIFU and Plexr.
