Frown lines or otherwise known as the lines ’11’ are the lines which form in between the eyebrows. This muscle is known as the glabellar complex. It is normal to have these lines while frowning but some people have developed these lines at rest. Most people feel the frown lines make them look angry. Frown lines are treated by injecting small amounts of anti-wrinkle product into the frown area which relaxes the muscles and prevents you from frowning. Sometimes it takes more than one treatment to fully reduce the appearance of the frown lines.
Antiwrinkle – frown lines treated with antiwrinkle to stop the formation of static lines
Deep frown lines can often make you look angry. Some of us are ‘permanent frowners’.. even frowning when we are happy or smile! Softening these lines is excellent for men and women, and returns a lovely calm smooth brow.
We use a range of injectable relaxants and pride ourselves on achieving fresh, vital, real results with highly qualified nurses.
A bespoke treatment of anti-wrinkle medication will be administered. The procedure is safe, not painful and quick to perform. Note the treatment is temporary, relaxing the muscle for approximately 3-6 months. For optimum results continued anti-wrinkle treatments are required.
There is a detailed consultation with the cosmetic nurse or doctor to discuss treatment options based on the patient expectations. During the consultation the cosmetic nurse or doctor will assess your face, note asymmetry, and take photographs to document your cosmetic journey.
Anti-wrinkle treatments are generally well tolerated. You will notice the product taking effect 2-4 days after the procedure, and full effect will be visible 2 weeks after the treatment.
The most common side effects include: local irritation or redness and mild to moderate swelling. Although rare, bruising can occur. If it does remember it is temporary and can be covered with make up 24 hours after the treatment.
