About frown lines procedure

Frown Lines, also known as glabellar lines, are caused by the repeated movement of our facial muscles. When we frown or squint, this causes the skin between our eyebrows to crease, and lines are formed. As we age, our skin loses the elasticity it requires to bounce back and these fine lines become permanent. As we know, skincare can only go so far, which is why aesthetic procedures can be vital in maintaining a youthful appearance.

Reducing deep frown lines in the skin with muscle relaxants is a very low-risk option to prevent wrinkles from forming and to smooth existing wrinkles and achieve a younger and friendlier appearance.

Our M1 Doctors will explain the procedure and determine whether it is a suitable option for you at your consultation. After the consultation with our GMC-registered cosmetic doctor, a precise amount of muscle relaxant will be injected into the frown line area. This works to paralyze the area and preventing it from contracting. By stopping contraction, the skin is allowed to relax and smoothen out. Glabellar lines are often treated alongside crow’s feet and forehead lines for an overall anti-aging effect.

If you suffer from migraines, having your frown line injected can also have a positive side effect on your health. Injecting the forehead can minimize or even prevent the extent of migraine attacks.

The very fine needle used to treat glabellar lines by our doctors makes muscle relaxants relatively painless. If requested, a numbing cream can be applied. The procedure takes about 15 minutes and effects can be seen up to 4 months after.

To ensure the best outcomes, we recommend that all injections be performed by experienced cosmetic doctors, At M1 Med Beauty, our doctors are specialists in their field, putting you in the safest hands possible.

Frown lines - Frequently asked questions

If you are considering any aesthetic procedure, please read our care guidelines.

Glabellar lines form due to the contraction of the area between the eyebrows. When we frown, the skin furrows together, forming lines and wrinkles. Other facial movements like squinting also cause the glabellar lines to deepen. In the long-term, collagen production decreases and the skin loses its natural smoothing ability, and the lines become permanent.

Injecting a small amount of muscle relaxant into the brow area can reduce the fine lines caused by frowning that form here. By paralyzing the area, movement is restricted, and glabellar frown lines are reduced, leaving you wrinkle-free. This can also reduce and get rid of other wrinkles such as forehead wrinkles.

Whether it is in the glabella region or on the forehead, these procedures are not overly invasive, this procedure is relatively pain-free. If you would like, numbing cream can be applied to the skin to help with any minor discomfort.

Within 10-14 days, you should see the completed outcome of your wrinkle treatment.

The effect of a frown line treatment usually lasts between three to four months. After that, the treatment can be repeated. Repeat treatment of wrinkles ensures that the effect lasts longer so that a permanent reduction of wrinkles is achieved and your skin maintains its youthful appearance.

M1 Med Beauty can help reduce wrinkles on the forehead, next to the eyes (crow’s feet), as well as a number of other facial areas. For a full overview, go here.

If the frown line has already penetrated deeply into the skin, it can additionally be injected with dermal filler. This, however, can only take place 10-14 days after the injection with muscle relaxants as it requires the muscle relaxant to have taken full effect first. Ask our experienced Cosmetic Doctors for further information.

t takes between 10-14 days, till you see the completed outcome of your wrinkle treatment. Some swelling may occur around the forehead after the initial treatment, however, this will subside within a few hours.

It is recommended to avoid make-up and skincare for 24 hours and to avoid excess sun exposure, solariums, saunas, and exercise for 2-3 days after your treatment to not affect your results. Read our full care guidelines here.
