When you scrunch your eyebrows together when concentrating or frowning, furrow lines appear. The glabella or “11s” are dynamic lines that can become etched on the brow as you get older, aging your face and creating a disgruntled expression. To smooth away the 11s between your eyebrows, Botox® injections are the perfect solution. RIVKIN Aesthetics offers Botox for furrow lines treatment at our Los Angeles clinic on Wilshire Boulevard.
The glabella area of the brow is one of the most common places for dynamic lines to appear. The “11s,” or vertical lines, are one of the first places lines are noticeable as you get older and your skin’s elasticity changes. Slight contraction of the muscles on the brow allows the lines to stay in place, even when your face is resting and relaxed. The furrow lines on the brow create a worried, angry, tired or aged appearance that is undesirable.
Eliminating Glabella Frown Lines
The first FDA approval for the cosmetic use of Botox was for eliminating frown lines. While Botox had been used for many years for medical treatments, it was not until 2002 that it was FDA-approved for wrinkle treatment. Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the targeted muscle in the glabella area between the eyebrows. The muscles relax and the dynamic “11” lines between the brows are smoothed away. The result is a more youthful brow and a pleasant expression when your face is relaxed.
Botox treatment for furrow lines is not painful and only requires a short visit to accomplish the desired result. Our expert Botox injectors can perform your treatment in about 15 minutes, and no downtime is required after your appointment. The effects of Botox become noticeable during the following days after your treatment and last for 3-4 months.
