What Are Frown Lines?

As the name implies, frown lines are caused by frowning.

Frown lines appear as two deep furrows nestled between the eyebrows. The repeated contraction of facial muscles, sun damage will form deep skin wrinkles. The more you use your facial muscles, the deeper your wrinkle furrows will become.

Frown Lines Started As Dynamic Lines

All facial wrinkles all begin as dynamic lines. Dynamic wrinkles are only present during certain expressions and can be easily reversed by neurotoxin injection. As your overlying skin becomes damaged and these muscles get stronger, your wrinkles will mature into static skin creases, which are permanently present. It is impossible to smooth out permanent wrinkles using neurotoxin injection alone. This is because deep wrinkles are a result of fat loss. Hence, dermal fillers are used to plump up the deep creases. It is therefore not a good idea to wait until lines become fixed into the skin, as it is much more difficult to rectify.

Treating Frown Lines with Neurotoxin

Neurotoxin Injection is a muscle relaxant that reduces the activity of muscles. When selectively injected into these muscles, the wrinkles disappear. This effect is temporary and will last for about 4 to 6 months. With regular use of the drug, these lines can often be completely erased. The correct dosage and placement of neurotoxin injection is important, to ensure your face remains capable of expression. The results of this procedure eliminate the wrinkles, leaving your face looking fresher and younger.

Treat the following areas with neurotoxin:

  • The frown lines between the brows.
  • Horizontal expression lines of the forehead.
  • Nose wrinkles (bunny lines).
  • Outer corners of your eyes, commonly known as the crows feet; and Brows, to give a lifted and natural brow lift.
  • A wrinkled chin.

Safety of Neurotoxin

Treating frown lines early with neurotoxin injection prevents permanent creases from forming. Because the muscles that you treat can no longer create strong creases in your skin. By starting treatment early, and repeatedly treating your dynamic wrinkles, you will prevent these from maturing into permanent static wrinkles. You may eventually require injections less often.

Treatment with neurotoxin injection is safe and the procedure itself does not take very long. Moreover, an instant recovery means that you can continue with your daily activities with no downtime. Lasting up to 4 to 6 months.
