How Do I Get Rid of Frown Lines?

Everyone has heard the statistics about how many more muscles it takes to smile than frown. While this might not be entirely true, it is undeniable that frown lines between the eyebrows are a very real consequence of constantly expressing negative emotions. These little lines can be the cause of insecurities for many people, and that is why San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic in San Diego offers a variety of different dermal fillers to get rid of frown lines.

What are Frown Lines and What Causes Frown Lines?

Frown lines are the lines between the eyebrows that occur as a result of repeated muscle action. When angry or confused, people often gather tissue between the eyebrows, and by repeating this gesture often permanent lines can appear. Years of squinting and frowning can lead to deep wrinkles that can be seen as unattractive.

What is the Best Way to Get Rid of Frown Lines?

The best method for treating frown lines is with dermal fillers. There are a variety of different dermal fillers that can be used to treat frown lines, with all of them bringing different benefits and disadvantages. Here are the best fillers for frown lines.

Botox for Frown Lines

Botox is one of the most popular dermal fillers, and Botox injections are a great option to get rid of frown lines. The main benefit of Botox is it is a quick, minimally invasive procedure with no recovery time that sees immediate results. When injected into the muscles between the eyebrows, Botox stops allowing the muscle to contract. By weakening the muscle, Botox smooth out the skin and eliminates the appearance of frown lines. While very effective in the short-term, Botox does not last very long and the effects are only temporary.

Dysport for Frown Lines

Dysport is another dermal filler that works to fight the troublesome frown lines above the nose. Dysport goes for a more natural look than botox, smoothing out frown lines while still allowing your face the malleability needed to express feeling and emotions openly. Muscles that did not get directly treated with Dysport will work normally, providing a more natural look and feel.

Xeomin for Frown Lines

Xeomin is an FDA approved dermal filler to treat frown lines. Similar to Botox, Xeomin blocks the muscles above the eyebrows from receiving signals from nerve endings, leading to a temporary reduction in muscle activity. This muscle stagnation not only causes a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, it also can help stop the deepening of the lines. Xeomin is comparable to Botox in terms of results and how long the treatment results for last.
