Botox for frown lines

Using Botox for frown lines is a great way to reduce the look of tension or anger. By simply reducing the frown line between the eyebrows, many feel as though they look more refreshed and approachable in their work place and/or social life. 

Cosmetically we use BOTOX® treatments to relax the muscles in the face that create fine lines and wrinkles and to prevent further deepening of lines. It is a simple 10-minute procedure, with a few tiny injections directly into the muscles we want to treat. There is an art to BOTOX® treatments - to achieve the best, most natural looking results it must be placed in the right muscle, in the correct place, at an ideal dose, by an experienced doctor. The most common areas we treat are the frown line, or ‘grumpy lines’, the horizontal ‘worry’ lines, and the ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes.

Botox for frown lines FAQ's

Will I need an initial consultation? 

Yes, as with all of our services, you must have an initial-consultation before proceeding with your first treatment - regardless of if you have had this treatment elsewhere. This ensures you are fully educated and informed before proceeding with treatment. We are a best-practice clinic and consistently deliver optimal results by placing paramount importance on education and informed consent.

Is it okay to get Botox for my frown lines only and not my forehead lines?

Yes. You can reduce lines and wrinkles in specific areas. Some people like to have a lot of expression and lines on their forehead but still want to relax their frown line. An experienced clinician will know where to place the Botox, in the right muscle, in the correct place, at an ideal dose.

Does Botox for frown lines hurt?

No. Many of our clients explain the sensation as a tiny pinch or like they are plucking their eyebrows.

How long does Botox for frown lines last?

We are famous for creating a 'natural look' with lower doses more frequently to avoid a frozen face, and we generally recommend repeat treatments every 3-4 months to maintain and improve your results.

What can you use with Botox to make results better?

Dermal fillers: to fill deeper frown lines

Omnilux light: treatments to enhance skin and improve recovery

Medical Grade Skin Care: to improve and maintain result

Where else can I get wrinkle relaxers?

Wrinkle relaxers have been used for several years with an almost 100% success rate for treating excessive armpit sweating.

Wrinkle relaxers are also used to treat medical conditions such as:

  • Bell’s palsy
  • Facial spasms

Wrinkle relaxers can be used cosmetically for gummy smiles, forehead lines, frown lines and more advanced techniques such as lifting the brow and mouth corners by 'rebalancing' facial muscles, or slimming the jawline by relaxing masseter muscles.
