Microdroplet Lift Beverly Hills


Microdroplet Lift® is a patented method of administering cosmetic botulinum toxin (BOTOX®, Dysport® and Xeomin®) for individuals seeking a low-risk, non-invasive wrinkle-reduction technique. Standard botulinum toxin administration techniques involve injecting Botox®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® in the forehead in a way that paralyzes the main lifting muscle of the forehead. Although this is effective at smoothing the forehead, it produces a frozen forehead that looks inauthentic (i.e. shiny foreheads, an unnaturally “frozen” look, and visible rippling). We need our forehead to move in order to make facial expressions. In particular, the facial expression associated with forehead lines help us to express interest.

Dissatisfied with these inauthentic treatments, highly-esteemed oculofacial microsurgeon Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir began conducting clinical research with the goal of improving upon botox brow lift techniques, and in 2005 he developed the Microdroplet Lift®, which avoids the side effects associated with standard injection techniques while consistently producing exceptional results.

Dr. Steinsapir’s revolutionary Microdroplet Lift® involves the injection of many tiny (microdroplet) volumes of botulinum toxin transdermally to reach the muscles of facial expression that effect the eyebrow and worry line area, allowing for a more accurate brow lift botox treatment that targets the brow depressor muscles. These muscles account for the cross pinch at our brows that make us look unfriendly or angry. The main lifting muscle of the forehead does not have to work as hard, allowing for a reduction of the forehead lines without direct paralysis. The Microdroplet Lift® produces a softer look at the brow with less angry pinch, and an improvement in the appearance of crow’s feet and 11-lines without the undesirable “forehead freeze.”

The Microdroplet Lift® relies on highly-controlled placement of tiny microdroplets of botulinum toxin to balance out the give-and-take of the eyebrow muscles. In proper balance, the interaction of these muscles creates a relaxed, yet expressive facial appearance. This naturally beautiful look is distorted and obscured by standard injection methods, but can be preserved with the Microdroplet Lift®. By treating the eyebrow muscles responsible for pulling the eyebrow down (eyebrow depressors) without paralyzing the muscle that lifts the forehead (frontalis muscle), Dr. Steinsapir’s Microdroplet Lift® enables patients to achieve a natural brow elevation while maintaining normal forehead movement and expressions!

Microdroplet Lift is a scientifically and anatomically based method of elevating the eyebrow position and softening overactive muscles. It is a dramatic improvement to standard injection methods because it precisely controls placement of the cosmetic Botulinum Toxin injections to produce a youthfully rejuvenated appearance and optimal facial muscle balance. Dr. Steinsapir has found that his method works well with all of the FDA approved Botulinum Toxin products: BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®. This patented technique (United States Patent 7,846,457 B2 issued to Dr. Steinsapir in 2010) will change how you think about cosmetic botulinum toxin in relation to periocular treatment.

The precisely controlled injection placement required by the Microdroplet Lift® offers a number of unique benefits:

  • Creates a more youthfully balanced facial structure
  • Softens the effects of age and stress
  • Preserves the patient’s natural expressiveness
