Erasing the frown linesthrough aesthetic medicine

The frown linesare the wrinkles between the eyebrows that appears when you frown. Over time, by dint of frowning, the muscles responsible for this wrinkle (corrugator and procerus muscles) remain contracted. The wrinkle then becomes more visibleand more marked. With age, the skin also loses its elasticity, which further strengthens this wrinkle. Fortunately, with current aesthetic medicine treatments, it is possible to act to erase and remove the frown lines.

Botulinum toxin injections in the frown lines

Botulinum toxin and its muscle relaxant properties were originally used to treat strabismus in children. Applications in aesthetic medicine were quickly identified and exploited to smooth expression lines. Injected into the frown lines, the botulinum toxin will relax the muscles responsible for its appearance. If the wrinkle is deep, we will be able to complete the treatment by injecting hyaluronic acid into the lion’s wrinkle. Hyaluronic acid will act as a dermal filler in the wrinkle.
