Is there any evidence of an effective eyebrow lift cream?

I think we all know most creams barely do anything other than keep your skin moisturized, but I'm curious if anyone here had some results, no matter how small, with a cream that was supposed to lift the eyebrows. I've been searching for one for a while and found nothing.

I didn't have any success with eyebrow lift cream. I used it consistently and followed all of the directions, but if there were results, I couldn't see them. I decided to try a non-surgical option and got noticeable results with Botox treatments, which are injected into the muscles above my brows. After the injections, the muscles that pull my eyebrows forward relaxed, and my brows are noticeably lifted. There is a brow lift surgery that I plan to have done next year. I'm satisfied for now with the Botox results, but I would love permanent results. I would say that your eyes are one of your most important features and that I wouldn't waste my time with creams. Plastic surgeons have so many ways to help your eyes.

I think some of the creams work. I still had a brow lift surgery though. The creams just made my face feel more elastic, but I didn’t really notice my forehead wrinkles going away. I wanted to really feel young you know? This was my first procedure. I didn’t know that I needed one until I started looking at pictures and saw how rough some of my skin looked, I visibly noticed wrinkles around my brows, forehead, and eyes.

In general, I just wanted to get it done so that I could have that youthful glow again. It’s been three years, and I get compliments and looks from everyone I meet. It’s flattering, but I don’t think I will ever tell them that I had the surgery done. Feel free to ask me any questions!

Not really. I spent a lot of money trying a variety of inexpensive eye creams and expensive ones to try and treat the sagging skin in the eye area. I wouldn't say they were a complete waste of money as the creams did improve my texture and skin tone. There was some tightening effect, but I would have to constantly use the cream to get any benefit. I tried these creams for about three months. I wasn't really happy with the results. I eventually broke down and underwent a browlift. If you are looking for a way to get a noticeable and permanent change in your brow, eyebrow lift creams are not the way to go. You could maybe look into Botox injections for a Botox brow lift.

As you mentioned, creams aren't particularly effective in creating a lasting effect to resemble an eyebrow lift, but rather are just good for moisturizing. That being said, if you're comfortable with the possibility of using Botox or a combination of a Botox treatment and dermal fillers, it'd likely be the least invasive approach to helping you achieve the eyebrow lift that you're looking for. It's completely understandable that you don't want to undergo an intense plastic surgery procedure just to have brows you're happy with, but when it comes down to creams, the inefficacy is too well known to disregard. It's almost amusing that brow lifting creams are still sold on the market successfully given the fact that they don't actually work. It's great that you asked this question to clarify what appears to be a longstanding myth and successful advertising illusion. Well-informed patients like yourself will make for smarter consumers with cosmetic procedures.
