What is the Best Treatment for Deep Frown Lines?

Frown lines, also called glabella lines, are the furrows between the brows that are generally shaped like the number 11.

Frown lines are the result of facial expressions that gather the tissue between the eyebrows into a fold. The dual action of facial movement and the loss of skin elasticity as we age can lead to deep frown lines over time.

What Causes Deep Frown Lines?

Culprits like smoking, sun damage, and repetitive facial movements can cause deep frown lines. Genetics also play a role by influencing how our skin produces wrinkles and furrows and how well our skin repairs itself. Some people tend to have more wrinkling issues in this area than others.

The sun’s damaging rays also create these lines by destroying collagen and elastin in the skin, contributing to the loss of elasticity and making skin wrinkle and sag easier.

Aging is a natural part of life, but for the skin, it means that the loss of subcutaneous fat, which gives our skin that plump, youthful appearance, begins to wane, causing us to look older and less refreshed.

What is the Best Treatment for Deep Frown Lines?

Botox is one of the quickest, most effective treatments for deep frown lines. It offers a safe, easy way to erase frown lines for a more youthful appearance without the downtime other procedures require.

It is the best treatment for deep frown lines because it stops the contraction of the muscles in your forehead that create the frown in the first place.

What is Botox?

Botox, medically known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, is a highly purified neurotoxin that blocks the nerve signals to targeted muscles when injected so the muscle doesn’t continue to contract.

Relaxing the area of the forehead that creates the frown acts like a magic eraser that smooths deep frown lines to create a more youthful appearance.

Botox also helps to prevent lines from becoming deeper by reducing the excessive habit of frowning. The most popular of plastic surgery injections, Botox, was FDA-approved for cosmetic use in 2002, with over 7.4 million people in the US currently receiving treatments.

Am I a Good Candidate for Botox?

Almost everyone is a good candidate for Botox. The only people who should stay away from Botox are women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Botox administration is an art, so using a highly skilled technician is crucial to achieving optimum results. Our technicians at LightRx have learned the subtle art of achieving the most natural look for a youthful, smooth, rejuvenated appearance.

Are There Other Non-Invasive Wrinkle Reduction Treatments Available?

The answer is yes. At LightRx, we use radio frequencies and magnetic pulses to achieve our non-invasive skin tightening. The system causes a thermal reaction in the tissue, causing the body’s natural healing process, which acts to tighten the skin.

This targeted heat activates the body’s natural healing process to promote new collagen strengthening in the skin. The collagen, now stronger, effectively smooths the treated skin. The heat causes slight damage to encourage natural healing. This healing process reveals new skin with fewer wrinkles and lines.
