What are frown lines?
Frown lines can make us appear more angry and tired than we feel. When we squint, look surprised, look angry, strain at a computer screen or raise our eyebrows, muscle movement causes frown lines to appear.
The most noticeable lines appear above the bridge of the nose in between the eyes. They are sometimes referred to as ‘eleven lines’.
Frown lines appear during expressive movement of the brow. This part of the face is known anatomically as the glabellar complex.
How do frown lines affect our appearance?
Expressively, frown lines make us appear more angry than we might be. This is the most common cause of concern for people looking to have them treated.
Over time, over expression of your glabellar area can cause frown lines to become permanent and they sit there at rest. This can have an ageing effect on our overall appearance.
Why anti wrinkle injections and not dermal fillers?
At Amara we don’t treat this area with dermal fillers for safety reasons. There are blood vessels that run up the side of the nose into the forehead that track near where frown lines form. A dermal filler treatment here may block them leading to serious complications and permanent damage.
For this reason we only treat frown lines with muscle relaxing injections which are safe to use in brow and are extremely effective at reducing these dynamic lines.
