The wrinkle in the inter-eyebrow zone, better known as the frown line, is treated in aesthetic medicine by injections of botulinum toxin or ‘botox’, and less often by injections of hyaluronic acid.

Different degrees of wrinkle severity are shown on scales.

Erasing frown lines with Botox injections

The corrugator muscle is responsible for the appearance of these wrinkles. When the muscle contracts, the skin follows, leading to dynamic or ‘movement’ wrinkles. Static or ‘at rest’ wrinkles are due to the gradual breaking down of the skin’s elasticity as it follows the muscle.
Injections of botulinum toxin allow us to reduce the corrugator muscle’s hyperactivity.

Botox is the suitable solution as soon as frown lines (whether static or dynamic) start to be a problem for the individual.

Side effects,follow up and results of botox for frown lines

There are no side effects.

The practitioner must have mastered the technique. The corrugator muscle must be injected internally at a minimum of 10mm above the orbital edge, or else the botox might spread to the upper eyelid lifting muscle, and a drooping eyelid.

The result is not immediate, but will become progressively noticeable in the week following the injection. Depending on what you have agreed with your doctor, the muscle will be either partially or totally blocked.

Filling frown lines using hyaluronic acid injections

Hyaluronic acid will not block muscular contraction but can fill the resulting hollow. The major drawback is the risk of necrosis.
