Vertical lines between the eyebrows in the area known as the Glabella can give some people an ‘angry’ appearance. These lines are caused by several small muscles we use in this area. We usually use these muscles for frowning and communicating anger to others. These muscles are also used when squinting, so not wearing glasses or sunglasses when you need them can make these lines develop quicker than they otherwise would.
Anti Wrinkle Injections can be used to reverse or slow down the progression of these lines. For most people the lines can be quite easily treated with Anti Wrinkle Injections and if neccessary, with dermal fillers. The muscles can be treated fully to completely obliterate movement in this area and thereby often obliterate lines or they can be treated partially, depending on the amount of toxin used. Usually treatments need to be repeated twice to three times per year. Over time the lines can require less frequent or less strong treatments as a result.
