The first cosmetic treatment approved by the FDA for Botox® was for the glabella or furrow lines on the brow or forehead. The “11’s” between the eyebrows and horizontal lines across the forehead are common facial aging issues which can be smoothed away with Botox injections. At Eden Plastic Surgery Institute, our cosmetic medical team offers Botox® injections for furrow lines treatment at our clinic in Miami.
Years of squinting, frowning and other facial expressions can create lines in the skin, especially on the forehead. Furrow lines are dynamic wrinkles that are caused by muscle contractions that create folds in the skin. As the skin loses elasticity with age, these lines and wrinkles become etched in the skin. The glabella 11’s between the brows and furrow lines across the forehead are visible even when the face is relaxed. Botox is an effective treatment for dynamic lines, including those on the forehead.
Smooth Away Frown Lines with Botox
Botox injections work to erase frown lines and other dynamic wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that causes these creases in the skin. Botox is a neuromodulator that can target specific muscles, interrupting the nerve signals that cause them to contract. By relaxing the glabella and other associated forehead muscles, 11’s and furrow lines smooth away. The results are evident in a few days after Botox treatment, and they last for about three months. The forehead looks smoother and more youthful; plus, the face appears more pleasant without those permanent frown lines in place.
If you have frown, glabella or furrow lines on your forehead that make you look older and grouchy, consider the benefits of Botox injections. The treatment can be performed in about 15 minutes, and there is no downtime after the procedure. Eden Plastic Surgery Institute offers Botox for furrow line treatment and other dynamic lines at our clinic in Miami. Contact our practice today to schedule your consultation or Botox treatment.
