Frown Lines Treatment
If you’re self-conscious of your appearance or feel that you have a permanent scowl, using Botox as a frown line treatment will help you to gain back confidence and eradicate the frown lines between your eyebrows.
What are Frown Lines?
Frown lines, also known as no.11’s, form on your face over time due to the repeated movement of the facial skin by muscles between your eyebrows. This happens both with age as the skin is constantly wrinkled and with the way that your face moves so it can develop at a younger age in some people. Frown lines between your eyebrows form through facial movements such as frowning or squinting. However, as we age, our muscles lose their elasticity and the creases become more and more etched into place. As the muscles above and between the eyebrows contract and tighten, they cause two frown lines between your eyebrows.
What is Frown Line Treatment?
Botox is injected into the muscles between your eyebrows to block the nerve signals which cause your facial muscles to contract and tighten which results in a reduction of muscle activity, temporarily preventing the movement of the muscles, removing frown lines over time.
How Long Will Frown Line Treatment Take?
Frown line treatment is a simple and quick procedure which typically only takes 10 minutes with small injections in the areas you wish to treat.
Frown Line treatment takes between 3 to 10 days to take effect and Botox for frown lines is 90% effective. However, ongoing treatment is required if you would like to remove frown lines over the longer term. The visible results of frown line treatment can last for up to four months. If you decide to discontinue treatments, your muscles will eventually return to pre-treatment strength and the creases and lines will come back. Botox to remove frown lines can significantly reduce the look of anger or tension in your face and is a popular treatment for people of all ages.
What are the side effects?
The risk of side effects for frown lines is very low as only a few units of Botox are used at a time. However, it is always important to consider the risks before committing to any treatment. Side effects of frown line treatments include:
• Drooping eyebrows
