Frown Lines

Frown lines are caused by the contraction of muscles above the eyebrows and nose.

Initially they only appear when somebody uses these muscles but eventually the repeated contraction of these muscles leads to lines or wrinkles that are present even at rest. Like any other muscle, the more the frown muscles are used the stronger they become. Frowning can become a habit and often people are not even aware they are doing it. In addition, some people have a constant low grade muscle contraction in the frown area and are basically frowning constantly. These lines can make people look angry or stressed even when they don't feel this way.


As frown lines are caused by muscle contraction, the best solution is to stop the muscles from contracting.  This is done by using anti-wrinkle injections. The product is injected into the muscle through a fine needle and attach to the nerve endings supplying the muscle and either weaken it or stop it moving completely. Effects begin a few days after treatment but it can be 10 to 14 days before the full effect is seen.

Clients that do not have permanent frown lines tend to get the best results. However, by weakening the muscles and retraining the client not to frown, even clients with frown lines at rest can achieve significant improvement over time. Sometimes dermal fillers are also needed to plump out or fill the remaining lines after initial treatment. Treatment of the frown lines leads to a more relaxed, serene and less stressed appearance.

Longevity / Treatment Regime

A single treatment will generally last 3 to 4 months. This varies between individuals and does depend somewhat on how much product is injected.  Over time the effects and longevity of treatment often improves. Initially it is recommended to have treatment 3 to 4 times per year but over time this can often be reduced to 2 to 3 times per year.

Frowns vary between individuals due to use of different muscles and anatomical variations. A skilled practitioner will be able to identify these differences and treat each client accordingly.
