Frown lines, etched between our brows, often tell tales of a life well lived, but for many, they can also become a source of concern, particularly as frowning can be associated with a negative emotion of looking angry. At London City Skin Clinic, we believe in helping you look your best as you age, so treating and preventing deep frown lines, can be one of the first steps towards keeping your frown smooth.
But, how can we achieve this?
What Causes Frown Lines?
Frown lines (glabella lines) are caused by repeated movements of the surrounding muscles. This can be furrowing of the nose, tightening eyebrows or forehead muscles squeezing.
The only causes of frown lines are strong muscles and repetitive movement, but there are several factors that can increase the speed at which they appear. These include:
- Sun damage
- Natural ageing
This is because the mentioned factors negatively impact skin quality. Frown lines will become progressively more prominent over time.
Frown Line Prevention
Because frown lines occur naturally as the result of facial expressions, the only way to prevent them from appearing is to seek revolutionary treatments such as Botox, which reduces muscle activity.
When to Treat Frown Lines
The most effective way to treat frown lines is to seek treatment early. Once they have become established, it becomes difficult to smooth them out completely.
The best results are achieved when the area is attended to before the lines get too deep.
How to Get Rid of Frown Lines
Frown lines are caused when the eyebrow muscles are pulled taut inwards and downwards towards the eyes.
Controlled Botox injections can be introduced directly into the affected area, blocking the chemical messenger between the muscle and the nerve that causes it to contract. For a period of 3-4 months, the muscles will remain relaxed, which prevents the development of frown lines and softens existing creases.
Botulinum toxin injections are especially effective in the prevention of frown lines.
Dermal Fillers can be utilised in addition to Botox when a residual crease remains, after the effects of muscle relaxation have occurred.
By injecting hyaluronic acid (HA) into the affected area, lost volume can be restored to generate a more relaxed, youthful appearance. Their primary application of softening facial wrinkles and folds makes them ideal for treating frown lines, as well as maintaining structure and hydration, which can reduce the chances of frown lines returning soon after treatment.
Dermal Fillers create natural results, and break down into the body slowly, removing the requirement for permanent fillers.
