What Causes Frown Lines?
Frown Lines are vertical lines that form between the eyebrows when we feel worried, angry or are concentrating too hard. They occur when the muscles of the frown pull the skin towards the centre of the brow, forming vertical folds or lines.
How Are Frown Lines Treated?
Anti Wrinkle Muscle Relaxants can soften Frown Lines by reducing muscle movement and the repeated bunching of skin in the centre of your brow. Most often this involves a few small injections around the brow. By relaxing the muscles that cause movement through your brow, existing Frown Lines soften and new lines are prevented from forming. Although you will notice a significant improvement after your first treatment, depending on the depth of your Frown Lines, it may take a series of treatments to achieve a smooth brow.
In some cases, Frown Lines have become heavily ingrained. Most often this is due to age-related volume loss in the centre of the brow and strong muscle movement etching in lines over time. Dermal Fillers may be required to fill and smooth out these lines, if and only if repeated Anti Wrinkle treatments have not achieved the desired result. Dermal Filler injections to the frown can be dangerous, so take great care in selecting an experienced clinician. Dr. Jodie is risk averse and experienced in all aspects of treating the brow. Even so, Dr. Jodie may direct you to consider treatment modalities other than Dermal Filler, based on the knowledge & experience she has accrued over a decade of working in a leading dermatology clinic. More often than not, she strongly advices against dermal filler in this area given it carries a higher risk of blindness as compared to other parts of the face.
What Is Involved With Frown Line Treatment With Dr. Jodie In Melbourne?
Dr. Jodie believes Frown Line treatments should leave you looking like a fresher version of yourself. You should never appear frozen or fake. Reducing frown lines is relatively easy but can quickly become complex if Anti Wrinkle Relaxants and Dermal Fillers are used together. This combined Frown Line treatment should only be performed by a clinician, like Dr. Jodie, with experience and advanced training in this type of treatment.
After assessing your face, Dr. Jodie will thoroughly clean the treatment area. To ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure, she will use ice to numb your brow prior to injecting. Using a fine needle, Dr. Jodie will administer Anti Wrinkle Muscle Relaxants in a series of injections into the bulk of your frown muscles responsible for your lines. Over a period of two to seven days, you will notice your frown lines relax and your wrinkles soften. Repeated treatments every three months will continue to improve the appearance of ingrained lines.
Dermal Filler treatment is more involved and is only rarely entertained in the unlikely event that Anti Wrinkle Injections over time do not adequately minimise your ingrained lines. You can feel reassured that Dr. Jodie is well versed in advanced treatments like Dermal Fillers for Frown Lines, but may encourage you to consider other treatment modalities, due to the high risk nature of the procedure. Within the Dr. Jodie clinic, you have access to Mono Thread Biostimulators and the Scarlet S Radio Frequency Microneedling device to help address lines in this area, which do not carry a risk of blindness.
