What are they and what causes them?
Frown lines can look like vertical or horizontal lines between the eyebrows. They are caused by repeated facial expressions and may be present during frowning or even at rest. They can give you an angry appearance. As the skin ages, it becomes less elastic and frown lines can start to etch into the skin. At this stage these lines can be treated with wrinkle smoothing injections before the lines become resistant to treatment.
How can we treat them?
Our practitioner at The Facial Rejuvenation Clinic can place five injections into the frown area and after several days the muscles that pull the skin into a frown lose their strength and the skin becomes smoother. Treatment can last up to and beyond three months.
Sometimes if the lines are heavily etched into the skin it may take up to a year of this treatment to fully remove these lines and at this stage if they can still be seen then superficial hyaluronic acid fillers can be injected to improve their appearance further.
