We all look angry sometimes, but some people get to hear that they are constantly looking angry. The frown lines are often responsible for this. The frown lines belong to the so-called dynamic wrinkles. This means that these wrinkles are caused by muscle activity, so that in the course of time lines remain in the skin. B
ecause the muscle activity in the face increases and the skin becomes less and less forgiving due to the decrease of, among other things, collagen, the lines will become deeper and deeper. By temporarily relaxing the muscles through treatment with a muscle relaxant like Botulinum toxin, the skin gets the chance to recover. Superficial lines will disappear and deeper lines will reduce and soften. Because the muscles that are responsible for frowning often also pull the eyebrows downwards and inwards at rest, it is a nice side effect of this treatment that the eyebrows usually appear to become subtler and fresher.
Treatment with Botulinum Toxin from the frown is completely harmless and only takes about ten minutes. When you first visit, count on a little more time, about 30 minutes. After about five days the treatment starts to show its effect, you will find that you can tighten the frown muscles less and less. The operation is optimal after about two weeks. We would like to see you back on control around that time to evaluate the result.
The treatment lasts for about three to four months and then has to be repeated to maintain optimal results. For deeper frown lines, treatment with Botulinum Toxin can be combined with a filler treatment with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body and mainly in the skin. Hypersensitivity or allergic reactions are therefore not to be expected. The effect of the filler treatment is immediately visible, and remains optimal for about nine to twelve months.
