Botox® to Soften Frown Lines

Frown lines : (Corrugator & Procerus muscles)

These are also known as the "angry lines" or "number eleven's". These central frown lines are caused by a group of thick muscles that work to push the brows down and together creating an angry, mean, and stressed look. A lot of time people aren't even aware they are frowning, as they might be staring at the computer, having a conversation, or just thinking. This is one of the most common areas requested for Botox as results can astonishing.

With strategic placement of the Botox it will allow those muscles to lift up and gently separate creating a soft medial brow lift which makes a person appear more relaxed and friendly. Many people have reported that treating this area reduces headaches caused by constant frowning. Exact placement of Botox in this area is crucial as this area has potential to cause temporary ptosis (droopy brow/eyelid), an experienced injector will know the exact landmarks and placement. I will assess the position of your brows pre treatment to check for any natural asymmetry's that can be corrected with Botox.

Certain individuals have a tendency for the tail of the brows to lift really high after Botox causing a "spok" this is something that I will take into consideration to prevent this from happening. The good news is if it still does happen there are Botox tricks that can be used to gently bring the brows down. Women typically like to achieve a bit of an arched brow in a natural way however, men don't usually look right with an arched brow as their brow position is naturally more straight across. As an experienced injector I will assess each individual for dosing and proper placement.
