Wrinkles that Are Truly "Downers"

None of us wants to look like we're frowning when we're actually feeling quite content and pleased with the world. Yet age, sun exposure, and unlucky DNA can cause deep "frown lines" to form permanently on your forehead between your eyebrows, unfairly making you appear continuously stern. Technically known as glabellar lines, these vertical folds of skin only deepen as your skin loses more and more of its collagen and elasticity with the passage of the years.

Treating Frown Lines

Frown lines can, of course, be removed with a surgical brow lift. But there are other, non-invasive procedures for smoothing out these unwanted wrinkles-procedures that require little, if any, downtime. The most popular treatments for frown lines are injections of botulinum toxin (Botox) and various dermal fillers. Often, the two treatments are combined. Maintenance sessions are required, but some evidence suggests that the effects last longer with each subsequent treatment.

The Patients Guide®

The advances in recent years in dermal fillers and injectables have been amazing. Fillers are now available that last as long as a year, and soon another botulinum toxin, Reloxin, will be available for use in the United States.
