Glabellar Lines

These are often referred to as ”frown lines” and are the vertical lines that appear between the eyebrows.

Glabellar Lines Treatments.

Many people develop such lines, and they can, in some individuals, appear on otherwise youthful faces. Not only are they ageing, they also can give a negative impression of frustration or annoyance. By using Botox on Glabellar lines, their visibility is reduced, creating a fresh and youthful look.

  • What is the cause of glabellar lines?

    As with other facial lines, age, sun exposure and expressions such as frowning all add to the formation of glabellar lines, and they sometimes seem to be permanent, even if you are not frowning.

    Over and above their ageing impact is their tendency to adversely affect the way you are viewed by others. These frown lines in particular can give the impression that you are annoyed or angry on a permanent basis.

  • What is the best treatment for glabellar lines?

    Our doctor will administer a series of Botox injections into the muscles that cause the frown to appear, which has the effect of relaxing these muscles, and obliterating the frown. This assists the achievement of a more youthful face generally, and conveys a better impression of your disposition to others.

  • How long does this effect last?

    As with all Botox treatments, the effect is temporary, but you can expect the softening of these glabellar lines to last between 4-6 months. Further, it has been shown that subsequent Botox treatments to the same area enhances the long term overall appearance of the lines, even when the immediate effects of the Botox injections has worn off.

  • Are there any side effects in the treatment of glabellar lines?

    Botox injections are safe, non surgical and approved. When administered, some people experience short term tenderness, with a little swelling. Occasionally, some people experience a mild headache. These side effects disappear quickly, and are shown to subside with each treatment.

  • Who will perform the botox injections for the Glabellar lines treatment?

    As with all Botox injections treatments, the Glabellar lines treatment for men and women is performed by one of our qualified practitioners and supervised by Doctor Maria Gonzalez.
