What Are Frown Lines?
Frown lines appear as deep vertical lines between your eyebrows and nose when you are making a frowning face. The procerus and corrugator muscles contract when you frown which causes the frown wrinkles to develop.
In terms of what causes frown wrinkles, it’s only natural for them to develop with age. Even if you don’t frown often, you could still develop frown lines due to your skin losing elasticity. The two proteins that are responsible for your skin’s elasticity include collagen and elastin; with age, our bodies produce these proteins less and less which means our skin can’t bounce back as quickly as it once did.
In addition to losing elasticity, here are some reasons we develop frown lines:
- Too much sun exposure
- Natural gravity
- Excess facial movements
- Genetic predisposition
Many people call frown lines glabellar lines but they are not one and the same. Typically, frown lines are the vertical lines between your eyes while glabellar lines appear above your eyebrows and run horizontally.
If you’re feeling insecure about your increasingly apparent frown lines, you can seek treatment for frown lines such as frown line injections.
Treating Frown Lines Is Easy with Metropolitan Skin Clinic
The best treatment for deep frown lines is often frown line injections, something that we offer here at Metropolitan Skin Clinic. When administered by a qualified medical practitioner, these Botox and filler injections can help visibly reduce the appearance of frown lines while still enabling facial movements to ensure you aren’t “frozen” looking. Most patients begin to see results from Botox within 5-7 days with maximum efficacy appearing roughly two weeks after the procedure.
When it comes to filler for frown lines, this is a more permanent and lasting option with results lasting anywhere from 9 to 12 months depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the product. The filler is injected underneath your skin to fill the frown lines and add more volume to this area.
Metropolitan Skin Clinic’s Treatment Options for Frown Wrinkles
As we mentioned above, both Botox and filler can be used to reduce the appearance of frown lines. We’ve gone into more details on each option below.
Dermal Fillers for Frown Line Treatment
Fillers for frown lines are one of the more popular treatment options as they are minimally invasive and provide lasting results. These wrinkle between eyebrows filler options include brand names such as Juvederm and Restylane. Your qualified medical professional will inject the product underneath your skin to add lost volume and smooth out the appearance of your forehead. The duration of each filler result depends on the brand and your body, but you can expect results to last from several months to a year.
Botox for Frown Line Treatment
Botox injections are botulinum toxin injections that work to relax the muscle and limit its movements. When it comes to treating frown lines, Botox helps to smooth out the existing lines while limiting the movement of your eyebrows to avoid those lines becoming deeper. The process of administering these injections only takes a few minutes and there is no recovery time. It could take up to two weeks to see full results and the injections will last anywhere from 3-6 months depending on how many you got and how your body reacts.
Skin Care Products for Frown Lines

How Much Does Frown Line Treatment Cost?

Frequently Asked Questions About Frown Line Treatment
Are frown line injections painful?
No! Both Botox and filler injections are designed to be efficient and as comfortable as possible. If you’re getting filler, we will use a numbing agent to minimize any discomfort that you may experience. Botox injections feel like small pricks and are generally viewed as very tolerable.
How should I prepare for frown line treatment?
If you are getting frown line treatment, we recommend coming in with a clean, fresh face without makeup as we’ll need to clean your skin off beforehand. For 72 hours before the treatment, avoid taking painkillers such as Aleve or Aspirin. You’ll also want to avoid taking fish oil tablets or vitamin E supplements. Roughly one day before the procedure, make sure to limit alcohol consumption.
How to take care of my skin after frown wrinkle treatment?
If you are experiencing inflammation, you can use a cold compress or ice to reduce inflammation. Make sure to avoid taking strong painkillers for 24 hours after your appointment and avoid applying products such as makeup and skincare for one day.
Are there any risks or side effects of frown line injections?
It’s very uncommon to experience side effects from frown line treatment and many side effects resolve on their own. For example, diffusion of Botox into the adjacent areas such as the upper eyelid occurs in less than 1 in 100 patients.
