Do you have permanent frown lines etched on your brow? The typical “11” lines between the eyebrows or the horizonal lines that appear on the forehead can make you look grumpy and older, even when you feel happy and youthful. These lines appear as the skin loses its elasticity, create a line or wrinkle from the same muscle movement occurring over decades, often showing up in the late thirties and forties. There are a few options for softening these lines, both surgically and non-surgically through a facial plastic surgeon, including these four popular procedures.
- Botox. One of the first cosmetic uses for Botox was to reduce the frown lines that appear between the brows. These quick, safe injections reduce muscle movement in the brow, reducing the appearance of frown lines for a more youthful appearance.
- Dermal fillers. Some brow lines can be softened with the addition of dermal fillers. These injections add filler under the skin to plump lines and soften the skin’s appearance.
- Brow lift. For more pronounced brow lines and eyebrows that have begun to lose their height, a brow lift can be a more permanent solution. This raises the eyebrows and addresses sagging brow skin that can cause wrinkles and lines.
- Dysport and Xeomin. Both Dysport and Xeomin work like Botox, helping minimize the muscle movement that can cause frown lines in the brow.
If you are tired of seeing pictures of yourself with frown lines that make you look older or cranky, contact a local facial plastic surgeon to discuss the options available for reducing frown lines. Both non-invasive injections and cosmetic surgeries for brows are available to give you a more energetic, happy appearance while making you look years younger.
