In this week’s Q&A, I am going to talk about the popular trend for the ‘Boy Brow’. This must-have beauty feature refers to the full, thick and natural-looking eyebrows that we all seem to sport when we are young, particularly as children.
Boy Brow Benefits
This androgynous, straight-looking brow is the new look that every A-list star, runway model or influencer is sporting these days. So forget reaching for the tweezers or trying to over-elevate your eyebrows with excessive makeup. By going for this natural, flat but ultra-defined eyebrow, we can instantly evoke a sense of youth about your look.
How to get a Boy Brow
Some people may be naturally lucky to sport this look anyways. But for those who want to achieve it with some help, non-surgical solutions like muscle relaxants can assist.
Whatever age you are, you should always avoid an over-arched brow. It’s a look which is ageing and tends to look contrived and odd, which is why we have been recommending a more natural brow shape to our patients for years. The ‘low arch brow’ or ‘boy brow’, as championed by numerous celebrities of late, is a simple treatment that allows you to achieve an attractively defined brow that looks natural and youthful at the same time.
Find out more about the ‘Boy Brow’ trend in the video below, and how you can achieve a boy brow with the help of muscle relaxants.
Will this treatment give me a natural lift?
In the past, injecting muscle relaxants into the brow was good for smoothing lines and wrinkles. But it often gives a contrived and over-elevated look. However, here at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we have spent the last few years trying to replicate very natural, soft, beautifully elevated brows. By delivering a relatively low dose of muscle relaxant, spread strategically and evenly across your brow, we can create a smooth, soft and naturally arched ‘boy brow’ that looks completely natural.
How do I know if this treatment is right for me?
To ensure the ‘Boy Brow’ is the right treatment for you, it’s important to assess your face individually. We will closely analyse your face, taking into account asymmetry, your eye shape and natural features. This way, we can tailor-make your treatment to give you an optimal look that enhances your own natural beauty.
Will this treatment work for mature patients?
For more mature patients or those who just want more of a ‘lid lift’ where the top lid is becoming lax or heavy, we can use a combination of techniques for best results. For example, we can use skin tightening treatments such as Ultherapy ultrasound or Thermage Eyes to give a more balanced lift all over the brow and lift the top eyelid as well.
