About Fox Eye


Fox Eye is a relatively recent cosmetic medicine treatment. Before her arrival, surgical options were needed to adjust the shape of the eyes, including eyebrow lifting, involving incisions in the hair or directly at the eyebrows, anesthesia and a significant recovery time with a more or less long social crowding.

However, the Fox Eye completely revolutionizes the way in which cosmetic eye treatment can be practiced. This is a technique that does not involve scalpels or stitches, and offers a relatively short downtime.

The Fox Eye is a non-invasive eyebrow lift procedure that uses a combination of non-surgical therapies to lift the outer part of the eyebrow. Several procedures can be performed to achieve the desired effect.

  • A first step is the injection of a filler to restore the volume around the area of the temples and forehead, sometimes both. The filler to be injected can be based on hyaluronic acid (Restylane Lyft, Juvederm Voluma) or polylactic acid (Scultra) to stimulate collagen production.
  • The next step is to inject Botox or Dysport to perform the eyebrow lift. This procedure usually requires a preliminary medical evaluation and involves injections at the glabella (which is between the eyebrows and above the nose), forehead and crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes) in order to lift the eyes and balance the entire result.
  • A final step may require injections at the contour of the upper cheeks using fillers (Restylane Lyft, Juvederm Voluma) to help balance the new look and create an even more intense effect.

How long does the procedure last ?

The duration of treatment depends on the combination of procedures that will be performed, the plan of which is discussed in consultation with your aesthetic doctor. If the procedure consists only in the injection of Botox, then allow about 10 minutes. If your doctor makes other injections to act on the temples, forehead or cheeks for example, the treatment may be longer, but will never exceed more than 45 to 60 minutes.


Fox Eye results typically last between 6 and 18 months. The duration of course depends on various factors such as the age and metabolism of the patient, the quality of the skin, the number and type of treatments recommended.


One of the many reasons for the growing popularity of this procedure is that the area in which the adjustments are performed is a relatively painless area. Simple local anesthesia may be enough to reduce inconvenience, but most patients describe the procedure as comfortable, even relaxing.
