Frown line treatment with anti-wrinkle injections are available at Chevron Advanced Medical. This is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures due to its simplicity and effectiveness. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to relax the muscles that cause frowning, which helps reduce the intensity and severity of this expression. Frown line treatment is also effective as a preventative measure, before your lines become deep and etched into your skin.

Case History:

The treatment explained:
The 2 main muscles that cause frowning are the procerus and corrugator supercilii muscles, as shown in the figure below. The corrugator supercilii muscles run across and above the eyebrows. They draw the brows together, creasing the skin in between. This causes one or two vertical lines when frowning and can become deeper with time. The procerus muscle is located in between the brows and causes bunching of the skin when frowning, resulting in horizontal lines.

Botox can be used to relax the muscles associated with frowning.

Anti-wrinkle injections are carefully injected into strategic points along the length of the procerus and corrugator supercilii muscles. This relaxes the muscles, resulting in easement of the frown lines. Some people also scrunch up their nose when frowning, creating bunny lines. These can be treated (off label) in addition to the frown lines. Anti wrinkle injections are temporary, lasting 3 to 5 months.
