One of the most frustrating aspects of getting older is watching the inevitable signs of aging appear on your face and forehead. Lines and wrinkles, particularly those appearing as “frown lines”, can give away your age like nothing else. The good news is that numerous skin wrinkle products have been developed recently that do not require incisions or the downtime that goes along with them. Minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments for frown line removal are extremely popular right now because of their ability to offer significant results in a safe, effective, and simple way.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a type of wrinkle reduction treatment involving the injection of a gel containing various substances that promote skin thickness and the smoothing away of fine lines and wrinkles like those appearing between the brows.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that your own body produces to allow your skin to retain moisture. One of the main reasons that skin ages in the first place is the gradual age-related depletion of this substance. Since its role in your skin is to increase facial thickness and hydration, a hyaluronic acid deficiency leads to skin that becomes increasingly thin and develops lines and wrinkles.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is an injectable medicine that can be injected into the muscles between your eyebrows to temporarily remove forehead lines and frown lines in adults. It contains a solution that causes the muscles in these areas to become temporarily relaxed, which prevents them from forming what are known as dynamic wrinkles.
Dermal Fillers vs. BOTOX®
When it comes to frown line removal, the right treatment for you will depend on multiple factors, such as the type of wrinkles you are dealing with. Oftentimes, when static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles are present, a combination of treatments can be used to address both types of wrinkling.
Most dermal fillers offer results lasting from several months to a year or more, depending on the exact type of filler used. The length of time that your results will last also depend on your own unique lifestyle habits, genetics, and environmental impacts.
