In brief: Some over lap

Botox will soften lines and wrinkles and calm down overactive muscles.
A brow lift repositions the low lying brows, smoothes the forehead wrinkles and calms the muscle bulge between the brows. Botox temporizes the problem with a brow lift the results are longer lasting.

In brief: Excellent ?

Botox can be used to weaken the depressing muscles of the brow, the lifting muscles thereby work less forcefully so fewer wrinkles and usually brow elevation.
Brow lifts do this by modification or removal of skin and muscle, Botox lasts 3 or 4 months brow lift will last years.

In brief: Big difference

Botulinum toxin injections reduce wrinkles by weakening or paralyzing the muscles that cause the wrinkles (no frowning=no frown lines).
The brow lift is a surgical procedure that reduces the forehead creases and lifts the brows to create a younger look. It is a more extensive procedure than botulinum toxin injections.

In brief: Forever vs 4 months

Brow lift is a surgical procedure which resets the brows at a more youthful level; it also helps smooth the forehead.
Botox is a medical treatment that can elevate the brow slightly but definitely smooths the forehead. The effects of brow lifts last many years, while botox's effects last 3-4 months, on average. Not all patients are candidates for either, so check with a facial plastic surgeon.
