Furrowed Brow Treatment
Squinting, frowning or quizzical expressions can cause the eyebrows to scrunch together. Over time and with lost elasticity in the skin, glabella lines, also called frown lines or “11s,” can appear between the eyebrows from furrowing your brow. This is one of the more common dynamic lines to become etched in the skin, which can create a grumpy and older appearance. Dr. Aviva Preminger is one of NYC’s elite plastic surgeons who offers furrowed brow treatment at her clinic in Manhattan.
Many of the lines and wrinkles on the forehead and brow are reminders of muscle movements throughout the years. Most people began producing less collagen in their 30s, resulting in less elasticity in their skin. Furrow or frown lines on the brow do have an FDA-approved treatment to smooth away these wrinkles. Botox® injections are the tried-and-true solution for erasing frown lines from the forehead and between the eyebrows for a happier, more youthful appearance.
Botox for Frown Lines
Frown line treatment was the first FDA approval for using Botox as a cosmetic. Botox is a neurotoxin that works by relaxing the targeted muscle. For dynamic lines and wrinkles, this stops the muscle contraction that causes the lines to form. With a few injections, you can get rid of frown lines between your eyebrows. The treatment can be performed in a few minutes at our office on the Upper East Side.
Botox injections require a few days for noticeable results to appear, but they last 3-4 months. You can enjoy a smoother brow and more youthful appearance with no downtime or recovery after your treatment. Botox is safe with few side effects – the most common side effects are bruising or swelling from the injections.
Other furrowed brow treatments include using dermal filler for static lines and surgical brow lifts. Dr. Preminger is a highly respected plastic surgeon with years of experience completing both cosmetic injections and surgery to improve the appearance of the brow.
