Checkout the Perfect Eyebrow

Do your old identity cards from the last few years show a real rainbow of shapes, depths and brow arches? Mine is safe. With the ever-changing eyebrow trends, finding the perfect brow can be daunting. And what’s even more annoying is that trends never seem to be realistic with the average hair growth cycle! If you have spent your life plucking too much, it can be almost impossible to get fuller natural eyebrows. Women spe-  nd hours in the morning painting over the remnants of the eyebrows; there are powders, pencils and paints, all of which create the Illusion of eyebrow perfection. Oh, and for that “perfect” eyebrow model … Photoshop is a best friend!

At Pearlman Aesthetic, Donna Fay, our resident beauty expert and licensed medical esthetician, is an eyebrow-shaping specialist. Donna Fay advises patients to get the perfect shape of the eyebrows to highlight their natural properties. It seems like a small detail, but the eyebrows really add punctuation to the face.

Dr. Pearlman hears the eyebrow problems of countless women looking for “normal” eyebrows, be it shape, size, Proportion or Position. The eyebrows frame the face and have been one of the detectable features of facial beauty over the centuries. When Dr. Pearlman wants to show a patient what the perfect forehead looks like, the first thing he does is launch a fashion magazine and flip through advertising and editorial pages, not plastic surgery textbooks.

In Robyn Cosio’s book “The Eyebrow” (2000, Harper Collins, New York, NY), a great memoir on the evolution of the eyebrow, Donna Fay was delighted to read what she has supported and practiced over the centuries. From the finely arched eyebrows of the flapper of the early 20s to the complete post-war eyebrows of the 50s through the restoration of the “Diva’s Arch” of the 40s in the 90s, Donna Fay can recreate (or undo!) one of them.

Club in central shape, then tapered along the tail, the central part starting with a vertical line drawn upwards from the edge of the nostril. The tail extends in a line from the corner of the nose to the corner of the eye. The height of the forehead should be the same at both ends; usually at the edge of the eye socket or just above it. In general, in women with the highest tip, the forehead should arch slightly between the corner of the Iris and the corner of the eye. The male forehead should be located on or on the edge of the orbit and have a more horizontal shape. Beauticians like Donna Fay often use the “pencil trick” to guide you through eyebrow design and use a pencil-shaped eyebrow pencil to delineate these parameters when updating a patient’s eyebrow style.

All this is good for teenagers, models and consumers of passion magazines, but as we get older, the forehead can smooth out and sag, as well as lighten. So, what should a girl do? Well, a skilled makeup artist can sculpt a forehead to imitate a youthful bow. But unless you let a makeup artist draw on your eyebrows every morning, Dr. Pearlman has come up with a number of non-surgical and surgical techniques to rejuvenate the forehead.

Eyebrows cannot be surgically raised using expertly placed Botox. Not only can the eyebrows be raised, but they are also beautifully shaped. Sometimes it is more a deflation of the eyebrow than a fall. In this regard, fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm can be used to restore youthful fullness, which is similar to eyebrow lifting, but does not lift the forehead. Ultherapy can also be used to increase the Position of the eyebrows, restore a youthful waist and an eyebrow arch.

When is surgery necessary? If there are wrinkles and significant redundancies of the eyelid skin, which may be due to sagging eyebrows. If there is a cap that makes you visually “conscious” or uncomfortable with excess skin, and if the eyebrows are in the correct Position and the overhanging skin does not protrude far beyond the corner of the eye, blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) is the best solution.

If the excess skin goes far beyond the eye, it means that the forehead has fallen and it makes more sense to raise your eyebrows. This is an important distinction that many plastic surgeons may not be aware of. In the hands of a facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Pearlman, you are in good hands. Be careful when you see a plastic surgeon. In my opinion, too often the eyebrows are raised too much or when it was not necessary at all.

If you look worried, sad or angry, it’s probably because of a problem in the front. When you look tired, it’s usually more eyelids. Take pictures of yourself from your mid-twenties and check where your eyebrows were. Remember that it is only about the shape and not the height.
