Botox (Botulinum Toxin) is a non-invasive (non-surgical) injection that takes just a few minutes, but reduces the frown lines around the brow area for up to four months.
What is Causing My Frown Lines?
You may be wondering if those frown lines you see were brought upon by stress or sun exposure. It’s not that simple though …
The skins aging process is far more complex than that. Many factors can play a role in the “frowning” process and they are not limited to, but they do include: cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, damage caused by free radicals, and so on; it’s a combination of many factors over a period of time. It can happen to anyone – young and old.
Glabella lines, also known as frown lines, are the cause of the muscle movements beneath the skin. When a person frowns for a short interval the facial muscles contract causing pleating of the skin. After years of this frowning process, the skin begins to linger and can become more pronounced.
How long does Botox last?
The results of Botox treatment can be seen within a couple of days following the injection and may last up to four months.
