Frown Lines: The “11’s”

No More Angry Look

One of our most requested treatments is to relax the muscles between the brows: the glabellar area. These muscles are activated when a person is feeling concerned, worried, or concentrating, but often comes across as a look of anger. Overactive contraction of these muscles can not only make a person look angry, instead of concerned, they also create deep vertical lines (known as the “11’s”), and can contribute to migraines.  Neuromodulators (Botox® & Dysport®) are injected into the five muscles in this area giving a softer appearance. The eyes and other facial movements then convey concern and concentration without the detracting appearance of anger.
