How Can I Get Rid of My Frown Lines?
Are frown lines between your eyebrows causing you to look older or more tired than you feel? If so, simple non-surgical injections can help you achieve the smoother skin you desire. Frown lines are dynamic wrinkles caused by overactive facial muscles and are exacerbated by the skin aging process. These vertical wrinkles are commonly referred to as “11” lines and glabellar lines and they can appear in men and women as early as 30 years old. Thankfully, today’s innovative injectable products, BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and XEOMIN®—which use the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A (BTXA)—can effectively diminish frown lines and give you a more youthful look for approximately three to four months. The BTXA prevents the muscles that create frown lines from contracting, which allows the skin to become smooth. After three months, it is typically safe to repeat treatment to maintain your results.
The process for treating frown lines with BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, or XEOMIN products is generally considered to be quick and easy. After a consultation with Dr. Joseph DiBello—during which he will evaluate your frown lines, ask important questions about your health/medical history, and determine which BTXA product is most suitable for your needs—a short treatment session can proceed. Most importantly, all injections at DiBello Plastic Surgery are personally performed by Dr. DiBello, a board-certified plastic surgeon. Injections take about 15 minutes or less and the majority of patients describe the process as very tolerable. The ultra-fine needle can create a mild pinching sensation, but cool compresses applied immediately will help control any discomfort or swelling. Within about five days, the results of your treatment should be evident and at two weeks the BTXA product typically reaches peak effectiveness. While your frown lines will be diminished, Dr. DiBello is careful to avoid creating a “frozen” look. His goal is to help you look more youthful, while still retaining your ability to make natural facial expressions.
