Throughout our lives, our foreheads are subjected to hundreds of muscle contractions every day, mainly due to the expressiveness of our eyebrows. Squinting the eyes and scrunching the eyebrows are two of the most frequent movements, and they create very specific patterns of wrinkles. The etched lines that run horizontally across your forehead are usually called “worry lines.” The deep dents between your eyebrows are called both “frown lines” or “11s.” You may have one or both types of lines, but the good news is all types of furrowed brow wrinkles can be addressed with non-surgical solutions at Creative Dentistry & Medspa.
The Perfect Pairing of Botox and Filler
The gold standard for nonsurgical furrowed brow treatment is Botox®. This popular brand has decades of safe and effective use for cosmetic procedures and works by blocking the nerve signals that communicate with the muscle’s contraction response. By stopping the contraction, the muscle relaxes, and since the skin now sits over the smooth muscle, the wrinkles disappear. For some people, Botox can also stop new wrinkles from forming, and prevent existing wrinkles from worsening.
If your furrowed brow wrinkles are very deep, you may benefit from filler, or a combination of filler and Botox in different places. Filler injections will add volume to deeper wrinkles, filling them in so they match the volume of the surrounding skin. The experts at Creative Dentistry & MedSpa can assess your face shape and proportions and will ensure Botox, filler or both are precisely placed for maximum impact and natural-looking results.
No Worrying About Downtime
Next to the outstanding results you can achieve, the biggest benefit to nonsurgical furrowed brow treatment is the ease of the procedure. Once the best positioning of the injections is determined, the actual treatment process is quick and simple. Both Botox and fillers can usually be completed in under an hour, and you are free to go about your day. While you can certainly return to work, there may be some redness, swelling or minor bruising. For this reason, many people book toward a weekend where they can take a day or two in privacy before resuming their normal routine with a fresh, youthful look.
