Frown lines or glabellar lines are visible between the eyebrows; they are the most common cosmetic complaint as they give the impression of looking angry, irritated or frustrated. They are also often referred to as number ’11’ lines.
The Glabellar lines are caused by facial expression, long term sun exposure and skin ageing which results in loss of natural elasticity in our skin. As we become older, the lines become more prominent and may be visible permanently. Botulinum toxin helps to relax glabellar muscles complex, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and therefore enhances the overall appearance.
The effect of the treatment lasts for 3-4 months. A repeat treatment will be required prior to lines returning to their pre-treatment expression. This will able you to maintain a youthful appearance.
Deeper frown lines or glabellar lines (static lines), usually respond better to a combination of Botulinum toxin and dermal filler treatment.
