A mad or frustrated look is a warning for others to keep back and not mess around with you. This can become a real problem for people who naturally look angry all of the time. When Frown Lines begin to appear, the deep creases between the eyebrows, the face may take on a permanently unhappy appearance, no matter how good one feels inside. Those who are not close acquaintances may avoid interaction, simply judging from a first, physical impression.
The intense lines between the eyebrows, sometimes referred to as 11’s, are caused by the repetitive muscle movements of the brow and forehead. Dynamic wrinkles are formed from repeated facial actions, like frowning and scowling when you are worried or angry; while Static wrinkles come from a loss of tissue elasticity. Because Frown Lines are Dynamic, managing the constant angry look will require a very specific treatment.
Fighting Wrinkles with Botox
Botox Cosmetic is the only approved wrinkle fighter to treat Frown Lines and other Dynamic winkles on the face. The paralyzing toxin is applied through tiny injections, relaxing the muscles of the eyebrows; allowing the area to loosen and smooth. A Botox Cosmetic Treatment takes less than 30 minutes in the cosmetic surgeon’s office. The injections last only seconds, and are relatively pain free. Bet of all, there is no downtime needed; patients feel well enough to return to work or school that same afternoon. In two to three weeks, the full results from the Botox will be apparent.
The Frown Lines, technically known as the Glabellar lines, will generally require between 20-30 units of Botox, depending on the extent of correction needed. At Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, the cost of Botox is $12 a unit, so expect to pay between $240 and $400 per treatment. If you want to add additional areas, or couple the Botox Cosmetic with other treatments such as a Dermal Filler or Fat Transfer, expect to pay more.
