FROWN

Frown Line Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Frown lines are the vertical ‘angry’ lines that develop in between the eyebrows. Treatment of this area tends to result in a more youthful and approachable appearance. Some patients have excessive muscle mass in this region, which makes the eyebrows protrude which can be clearly seen from the side view, producing an ‘angry face’ appearance, even at rest.

Many patients generally present as others may have told them that they ‘appear unapproachable’ or have a ‘resting bugger face’. This is generally due to a prolonged period of increased muscle strength and size leading to these nasty frown lines. Delayed treatments usually leads to a worse prognosis which becomes much more difficult to treat and requires stronger intervention.

For deeper creases and wrinkle lines, please also read about Frown lines filler treatment below. A Comprehensive Facial Assessment with one of our Medical Professionals allows for an accurate assessment and intervention plan to determine the best and most effective methods to minimise frown lines. At Flawless Aesthetics Clinics, our priority is to keep you feeling young, refreshed and FLAWLESS.

 

anti-wrinkle

Frequently asked questions:

A neurotoxin is injected into the targeted areas weakening part of the muscles that relax the muscle involved which reduces the appearance of those lines. The neurotoxin leads to a temporary paralysis of parts of the muscle which leads to a significant reduction in wrinkle lines, especially those more prominent with facial expressions. 

 

Unlike Dermal Fillers, Anti-Wrinkle treatments do not show immediate results. The effect of the neurotoxin generally kicks in between 3-7 days after treatment, with a peak effect at 2 to 4 weeks. At 8 weeks the brows begin to lower. At 3 months post treatment, approximately 50% of the effect would be gone.

 

10 minutes with no pain or downtime.

Generally 3 to 6 months. Over 60% of patients will retain neurotoxin effects 4 months post treatment. Depending on genetics and lifestyle, some patients only retain effects for up to 8 weeks (those who are extremely physically active tend to metabolise the product faster and have shorter lasting results).

Dermal

filler

Frequently asked questions:

Dermal fillers are used to treat strong frown lines which are still present at rest and there’s no facial expression. Fillers are carefully placed in safe areas and moulded to treat these stubborn wrinkles  in order to produce a natural appearance. For Men, Fillers are also used to enhance the facial appearance as a more prominent forehead and brows produce a more masculine appearance. Dermal fillers are becoming more popular due to their instant results and intermittent lifespan.

 

Treatment takes up to 30 minutes, with minimal pain and no downtime.

 

Dermal Filler results tend to be immediate, however we recommend waiting the 2 week post treatment period to see the final result. This gives the additional swelling, bruising or any other effect of the healing process to resolve.

Dermal Fillers typically last 24-48 months, however they depend on individual factors such as skin type, age and lifestyle.

Flawless Aesthetics offer a Premium Grade TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) Approved Dermal Fillers that help – 

  1. Express a more youthful appearance by restoring volume loss, providing structure support and lift to the eyebrows, eyelids and surrounding areas of the upper face. This helps contour the face to equate the balance and facial ratio. 
  2. Enhance the shape and definition of the face
  3. Stimulate the production of collagen via hyaluronic acid injected directly into the skin
  4. Refine any asymmetry in the face to contour an attractive and symmetrical facial structure.
