What is the frown line?
The so-called frown lines are also known as glabellar wrinkles. They appear between the eyebrows and are also called concentration wrinkles by many people. When you have a concentrated or angry expression on your face, the tension in your forehead muscles causes distinct longitudinal wrinkles to appear. So frown lines are not wrinkles caused by skin ageing. However, the depth and structure of these facial expression lines are exacerbated by the ageing process. Over time, it can feel as if the wrinkles have literally “burrowed” into the face.
Removing frown lines – What are the options?
In order to understand how to remove frown lines as part of wrinkle treatment, it is first necessary to look at exactly how they develop. This deep expression line is triggered by the interaction of the two muscles corrugator and procerus, whereby the corrugator is primarily involved. At the BellaDerma specialist centre in Berlin, various approaches are used to treat frown lines:
Botox for relaxation
If you choose Botox for the treatment of frown lines, the corrugator is relaxed. This weakening of the muscle significantly softens the frown lines. Since this wrinkle is caused by the tension of the two muscles mentioned, the treatment with botulinum toxin, which actively induces relaxation, is ideally suited for the removal of the frown line. However, as with any Botox treatment, the effect only lasts for a certain time. After that, the wrinkles reappear and the treatment has to be repeated.
Injections with hyaluronic acid
If the frown lines are not too deep, injections with hyaluronic acid can achieve a good, smoothing result. This effect also diminishes over time, as the hyaluronic acid is broken down by the body.
Botox and hyaluronic acid in combination
In order to achieve a longer lasting effect, a combined treatment with Botox and hyaluronic acid is recommended. This can achieve an immediately visible smoothing of the corresponding expression lines. This form of treatment is absolutely recommended, especially for deeply buried frown lines. By the way: In order to have your frown lines removed or injected, there is also the possibility of filling with your own fat, collagen or lactic acid preparations in addition to filling with hyaluronic acid. Please contact us.
Removal of the corrugator muscle
Probably the most lasting method of combating frown lines is by removing the corrugator muscle that causes them. This cosmetic operation is particularly suitable if an upper eyelid correction is being carried out anyway. The muscle can also be removed as part of a facelift. In the long term, the unwanted deepening can hardly be treated.
