Frown lines are a common cause of concern for many people. They can be the result of a variety of factors including frowning too much, genetics, sun exposure and age. The good news is that there is a helpful treatment option: injectables! Injectable wrinkle treatments work by injecting anti-wrinkle serum to paralyse the muscle and reduce wrinkles. Plus they’re non-invasive and take just minutes to administer!
What causes frown lines?
Wrinkles can be caused by muscle contractions in the face that occurs when we smile or frown too much.
How to treat frown lines?
Frown lines can be treated with injectable treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections to temporarily paralyse the underlying muscles that cause frowning.
How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections reduce the effects of these muscles by paralysing them for a short period of time so they cannot cause any more creases in your skin.
Injectables work to relax the muscles that produce wrinkles and improve your appearance by smoothing out those deep-set wrinkles on your forehead, around your eyes or in between your eyebrows.
When you are looking for a quick fix to your frown lines, it is important that you seek out the best treatment. The results of a frown line injectable are not permanent and will only last up to four months before they start to fade away. While this may be discouraging news for some, there are other methods available which work better with long-term results. If you have a heavy, sagging brow or a deep furrow in between your eyes, an endoscopic brow lift may be the preferred option.
Why get frown line treatment?
Frown lines are the most common type of wrinkle in the human face and they appear between the eyebrows over time as we age (typically due to repeated facial expressions). Wrinkles not only make us look older than we really are. They can be treated by injecting anti-wrinkle serum into muscles in order to reduce their visibility.
Who is a good candidate?
A person who is a good candidate for anti-wrinkle frown injections is those with wrinkles in the forehead area, horizontal lines between the eyebrows, and vertical lines that extend from the nose to just below the eyes. Anti-wrinkle frown injections can help soften or eliminate these types of wrinkles by injecting a small amount of anti-wrinkle injectables into specific muscles. It doesn’t take long before customers see results!
Frown Line Injectables – FAQs
Does it hurt?
Anti-wrinkle injectables are not as painful as you think they may be, but it does depend on the individual’s pain tolerance. If you are scared of needles, then it is possible that the injection will hurt more than someone who doesn’t fear them.
What’s the recovery period like?
The most common side effects after injection include redness and swelling for a few days until the area returns to normal. It is important to go in with realistic expectations about what can happen during your appointment so that you don’t get discouraged if your results aren’t immediate or dramatic enough for what you were expecting.
What are the risks?
During your consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to explore and address potential side effects, including:
- Bruising and redness
- Temporary weakness or drooping
- Potential discomfort like headaches
Are the results of anti-wrinkle injections immediate?
The results of anti-wrinkle injections are not immediate but typically take about two weeks to show up fully on your face although some people notice a difference as soon as seven days after treatment.
How long do anti-wrinkle treatment results last?
Anti-wrinkle treatment results will vary depending on the type and severity of your skin condition as well as the product you choose to use. For example: If you have moderate wrinkles or sagging skin around your eyes then a few injections may be enough to provide relief for up to four months before needing another treatment. If you have deeper lines, you may need to come back after the first few weeks for a “top-up” depending on how your body takes to the treatment.
