How to Get Rid of Frown Lines
Frown lines are those wrinkles between your eyebrows over the top of your nose. They show up over time due to the crinkling of your face from squinting and frowning. And while frown lines are often a sign of a life well-lived, they can also be a source of low self-esteem.
If you’re struggling with the way your frown lines make you feel, the team at Balance Hormone Center can help through dermal fillers.
Dermal Fillers for Frown Line Reduction
Dermal fillers are one of the most common treatment options for wrinkles, especially around the face. Here at Balance Hormone Center, we offer three different types of injectables, depending on your needs.
This injectable works by blocking the release of chemicals that cause your forehead muscles to contract. As a result, the appearance of your frown lines is softened.
Dysport® is for moderate to severe frown lines and works by preventing muscle contractions. It’s often chosen because it doesn’t cause the “frozen look” associated with other dermal fillers.
Perhaps the most popular choice, Botox® temporarily reduces muscle activity using a natural, non-toxic organism, Clostridium botulinum.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers work through injection. Using a syringe, we administer the filler into your frown lines directly into the muscle tissue. Most patients will see full results after 30 days and they typically last 4 to 5 months.
During your first appointment, we’ll discuss your goals and come up with a treatment plan that fits. Additional treatment may be required, depending on your needs.
Do They Hurt?
Our fillers are injected using an ultra-fine needle, reducing any discomfort associated with the procedure. We also use a topical anesthetic to provide further relief. Patients say they feel a slight pinch and then it’s over in a few moments.
What Are the Side Effects of Dermal Fillers?
Just like any medical treatment, there are potential side effects when it comes to dermal fillers. However, they should be mild in nature. You may experience some bruising and swelling around the treatment site after your injection.
Any symptoms should go away within a few days. If you experience lasting symptoms, it’s best to call us or your doctor for assistance.
