Frown lines are the creases that form between the eyebrows. While they might first only appear when a person is emoting, eventually, they’ll become permanent fixtures on the face. However, there are ways to make these frown lines less noticeable. With the help of Dr. Nima, Beverly Hills patients can restore their faces back to their smooth, youthful appearance.
What Causes Frown Lines?
As the name may suggest, frown lines can be caused by frowning. However, the biggest cause of frown lines is age. As a person ages, their skin loses collagen and elastin, which are two vital building blocks. Without these proteins, the skin sticks into permanent creases from repeated movements.
There are a few other causes of frown lines. These can include:
- Having a genetic disposition to wrinkly skin.
- Getting too much sun exposure to the skin, resulting in damage.
- Smoking tobacco products.
- Being overly stressed.
Types of Frown Line Treatments and Their Benefits
Treating frown lines can take two main approaches: relaxing the muscles under the skin and revitalizing the skin itself. For the first option, injections such as Botox and Dysport can be used to paralyze the muscles that are creating tension in the skin. As these muscles relax, the skin above them smooths out, greatly reducing the appearance of frown lines. Because each injection is precisely placed, patients won’t lose their ability to emote, and they’ll enjoy results that last for several months.
Another option for Beverly Hills patients to try is revitalizing procedures like microneedling, which work to stimulate the production of collagen for healthier skin. Collagen can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead area.
In some cases, Dr. Nima may even recommend dermal fillers to help reduce frown lines. These would plump up the skin to help it look smoother and fuller.
If dermal fillers are combined with Botox or Dysport, the results can last even longer.
Which Frown Line Treatment Is Right for Me?
Patients are not expected to know which frown line treatment is best for them. Rather, it’s a decision they’ll make together with Dr. Nima at their initial consultation. During this visit, Dr. Nima will take a look at the patient’s issues and medical history to devise a personalized plan of care that tackles all their concerns. It’s possible they may also want to touch up other areas, which is also something Dr. Nima can account for.
What Do Frown Line Treatments Cost?
Treatment for frown lines is highly personalized, so Dr. Nima is unable to provide an estimate without seeing the patient at his Beverly Hills office first. At this time, he’ll be able to put together a list of procedures the patient needs to compute an accurate cost. For patients who need a little assistance, we do partner with CareCredit to offer financing options.
