You may have a brow lift without treating the frown lines. However, you will most likely not achieve the same quality of result compared to if you were additionally having the frown lines treated. This is because when the procerus and corrugators (depressor muscles of the frown) are injected with anti-wrinkle injections, it relaxes the muscles up and out towards the lateral brows (the arch of the brows). Lifting the brow by injecting the muscle that surrounds the eye (orbicularis oculi) will give support to the lateral brow. The corrugator muscles sit just above the front of the brow and normally end at about mid-pupillary line (although some peoples can be shorter or longer). Injecting both muscles will give maximum brow lift, and aid in supporting the forehead muscle up, if that is treated at the same time.

Normally, we would inject a ‘full dose’ (typically 20 Units) in the frown area (the glabella) and about 4-6 units per side of the lateral brow to achieve maximum brow lift.
