Frown Lines form over time. As we age repeated movement of the facial skin by the muscles creates frown lines between the eyebrows. Frown lines may develop even in younger adults because they are created by facial movements such as frowning or squinting.
Here at Paramount Dental Sydney our qualified practitioners can administer Botox as an effective treatment for frown lines. Botox blocks the nerve signal that causes your facial muscles to contract resulting in a reduction of muscle activity within the treated area and temporarily stops the contraction of the muscles.
Treating frown lines
The effects of a Botox treatment last approximately three to four months but this is impacted by your metabolic activity and lifestyle choices. When the wrinkles begin to reappear, you will need a another treatment.
The temporary nature of the treatments is actually one of the reasons that Botox has such an incredible safety record because when the treatment effects are gone, they are gone completely.
Treatment for crow's feet (lateral canthal lines) can also be given at the same time as frown lines (officially known as glabellar lines).
