Reverse the Hands of Time with Treatment for Frown Lines

By The Landings Surgical Centre on April 25, 2017

A woman with fine lines and wrinklesWhen creases between the brows, known as frown lines, develop, it can make a person look stressed, angry, or older than they feel. If you are unhappy with the appearance of frown lines, you may benefit from treatment from Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau. Drs. Bendor-Samuel and Boileau offer a variety of facial plastic surgery treatments to reverse the signs of aging and restore a more youthful, rested appearance. Frown lines may also be treated with non-surgical procedures to address the unique needs of each patient. To find out which treatment for frown lines is right for you, schedule a consultation at our Halifax, NS practice.

Why Do Frown Lines Form?

Frown lines are the vertical lines that develop on the forehead and between the eyes as a result of the aging process. Because frown lines develop as a result of repeated movement of the brow muscles, frown lines most commonly form in those who squint or furrow their brows. Frown lines also develop as a result of a loss of skin elasticity as seen with the aging process and smoking. Frown lines may also develop as a result of sun exposure, which can damage the skin by breaking down collagen and elastin.

Facial Plastic Surgery Options for Frown Lines

Facial plastic surgery treatments can address frown lines to reveal a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Plastic surgery options for frown lines include:

  • Traditional Brow Lift: A traditional brow lift, also called a forehead lift, is performed by making an incision either behind the hairline, across the scalp and above the ears, in front of the hairline, or in the middle of the scalp. Through these incisions, excess skin and tissues are removed to smooth wrinkles and creases and create a more youthful appearance. 
  • Endoscopic Brow Lift: Frown lines may also be addressed through an endoscopic brow lift. With an endoscopic brow lift, small incisions are made on the scalp and an endoscope, a thin tube with a camera on the end, is inserted through the incisions, along with small surgical instruments. The camera and tools are then used to strategically adjust the tissues within the forehead to reveal a more youthful look with minimal incisions.

Non-surgical Treatment Options for Frown Lines

Those with minimal frown lines may benefit from non-surgical treatments. Popular non-surgical treatments for frown lines include:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic: BOTOX® Cosmetic helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that contribute to the formation of facial creases. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is administered through injections into targeted areas. Because BOTOX® Cosmetic is non-surgical, no recovery time is needed. Patients may return to their normal routine as soon as they leave the doctor's office.  
  • Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers may be injected into the brow to plump up the tissues and smooth out frown lines. There are different types of dermal fillers, including JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and Perlane®, all of which can be administered in as little as 15 minutes with no recovery time needed.

Which Treatment Is Right for You?

To find out which treatment for frown lines is right for you, you're encouraged to schedule a consultation with Drs. Bendor-Samuel and Boileau.
