Frown lines between the eyebrows are caused by repetitive movement of the muscles above your eyebrows. Over time, this creases the skin and produces the wrinkles. We usually use these muscles for frowning, expressing anger, concentrating or even squinting in the sun.
Anti-wrinkle injections treat wrinkles caused by the contraction of facial muscles. These injections can be used to relax the muscles of the frown to prevent the appearance of a vertical frown line. The effects of Anti-wrinkle injections are generally seen after 1-2 weeks. These results can last up to 4 months.
NOTE: Anti-wrinkle injections do not immediately improve static lines, or lines that present a line. These can be treated by adding volume with dermal fillers.
Worry lines are horizontal lines that run across the forehead. These lines are caused by the folding of skin when the frontalis muscle contracts. Prominent or scarred lines in this area can make some people look worried when they are not.
The treatment takes under 15 minutes and the results will last between 12-16 weeks.
