Frown Lines

Good skin care and adequate protection from the sun are the first steps in preventing and treating frown lines.

The daily use of sunscreen can minimize the development of wrinkles on the face and around the mouth. Using a good moisturizer can also effectively reduce the look of existing lines. You can also take additional steps such as wearing a hat to avoid exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Medical procedures such as filler injections and less commonly Botox are often used to treat frown lines. A choice of fillers ranges from those lasting a few months to permanent. Choice of substances ranges from collagen which is kind of old school to hyaluronic acid which is the most common current used therapy to silicone is the most permanent and even to your own fat. The best outcomes typically result from those experienced in doing these procedures.
