Glabellar lines, commonly called frown lines, do not form around the mouth as you may think. Instead, frown lines are the lines that form above the bridge of your nose between your eyebrows. Frown lines are vertical wrinkles that can appear as deep indents or, some say, look like the number eleven showing between your eyebrows. Over time, the cause of frown lines is the repeating of certain expressions, such as squinting or the furrowing of your eyebrows.

Botox is a fantastic solution and works better than dermal fillers to eliminate these lines. This is because frown lines are considered dynamic wrinkles or wrinkles that form due to repetitive movement. This repetitive movement, in combination with the skin losing elasticity, leads to these wrinkles. As you age, your body no longer produces hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen at the rate it did in your younger years. Because of this, the thinning skin cannot withstand these repetitive expressions, which is when the wrinkles form. Dynamic wrinkles are not typically going to respond to topical products, which is where injectable Botox comes into play.

Botox, considered a neurotoxin, is a non-surgical variety of anti-aging medication which has been utilized by doctors for decades and has become one of the most trusted injectables on the beauty market today. Doctors worldwide use Botox to treat lines at their source so that patients can achieve smooth and youthful-looking skin.

Botulinum toxin, or Botox, is an FDA-approved byproduct of a type of purified bacteria known for its safety in the use of addressing numerous medical issues. Botox is not only used as a treatment for wrinkles but has also been utilized in treating other medical conditions, including excessive sweating, lazy eye, muscular spasms, TMH, and migraines.

Considered a neurotoxin, Botox relaxes the muscles responsible for creating a large array of facial expressions along the upper half of the face. When you make any facial expression, it is made possible by various functions happening all at once. Your brain, the muscles in your face, neurons, and neurotransmitters all work together every time you make any facial adjustment. Botox works effectively by disabling the communication between these various “cogs” so that the muscles in your face remain relaxed and your facial expressions temporarily cease.

Through just a single injection, the components in Botox inhibit this communication so that you are left with smooth, wrinkle-free skin as a result of this relaxation. As these consistent expressions of your face are no longer occurring, the wrinkles will fade.


Once you schedule a Botox appointment with your doctor, what follows will be a quick and relatively painless treatment. Your doctor should require only 10 to 30 minutes of your time. This depends on how many injections you need if you have more than your frown lines addressed. The injections are performed using a very fine, thin needle, resulting in very minimal, if any, discomfort. Upon insertion, you should feel very little. In addition, topical numbing cream can be applied to your treatment sites to ensure you do not feel a thing during the injections.

Once your skin is ready for treatment, your doctor will inject the Botox into the muscles of your face responsible for your frown lines so that they become relaxed and your skin begins to smooth. The total amount of Botox used will depend on the severity of your lines and wrinkles.
