Frown lines are deep vertical creases located between the eyebrows and are more prominent when a person frowns. Often others interpret these lines as anger or concern.
Over time, repeated movement of the muscle between your eyebrows leads to the formation of frown lines. They can be treated with the use of muscle relaxants that cause less contraction of the muscles underneath the frown line and considered as the most popular method for frown line treatment. These injections lead to a smoother appearance between the eyebrows and prevent these lines from becoming deeper. This form of frown line treatment works by preventing repeated muscle movements that lead to the formation of lines and can also be combined with dermal filler injections for a better result. At Total Face Group, we have clinics in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Canberra that are dedicated to frown line treatment to enable patients to look and feel the way they want.
WHO ARE THE POTENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR FROWN LINE TREATMENT?
Often individuals who find themselves becoming self-conscious due to their frown lines are ideal and is applicable for adults who have started to show signs of facial ageing and are in good overall health.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM OUR FROWN LINE TREATMENT?
The treatment is completed in around 15 minutes in one of our clinics. The muscle relaxant is delivered through a thin needle directly into the muscle between the eyebrows. Following the injection, the muscles in the area start to relax. After the treatment patients can immediately resume their activities. This is a quick treatment for those who seek a more rejuvenated experience with no downtime.
Within about a week, you can notice that the frown lines become less noticeable. The injected relaxant works by blocking nerve signals going to the muscles, resulting in controlled muscle weakening just below the frown line. If the muscle is not able to contract fully, the wrinkles start to relax and become smoother – this can be noticeable within just a few days of the injections.
The effects of frown line treatment can last for 3 to 6 months. As the effect of the muscle relaxant wears off, the frown line will return. So, many patients undergo scheduled injections for maintenance to keep their frown lines at bay.
POSSIBLE RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS
Minor side effects include swelling, redness, bruising, and tenderness. Most of these subside within 48 hours after the treatment, and any visible effects can be hidden with make-up. Make sure to avoid lying down for 4 hours after the injection and avoid touching or rubbing the treated area for 12 hours to prevent irritation. Such activities can cause the injected muscle relaxant to affect the surrounding tissues.
