What are frown lines?
Also known as the 11’s, frown lines are characterized by the lines between the brows. These lines generally appear when you are angry, giving them their name. However, often times these unwanted lines also appear above the brow and around the eyes.
These pesky lines become an issue when repeated movement causes a more permanent crease to remain even when we are not angry. Both men and women find these wrinkles to be an annoying concern both socially and at work. We all want to appear relaxed and approachable, but unwanted furrows between the brows can completely alter the facial expression we intend to give.
Depending on the severity of the lines, the Dermatology and Laser Centre offers a variety of skin smoothing options to address this extremely common issue. Often times a combination of treatments can yield the most desirable outcome, refreshing the face for an overall more rested and youthful appearance.*
Injectable treatments in Los Angeles
The use of purified toxins like Botox and Xeomin for smoothing wrinkles is widely studied and yields excellent results.* This injectable treatment works by blocking the nerve impulse to the muscle, causing a form of paralysis called botulism.* A very small dose of Botox can be injected directly into a specific muscle so only that muscle is paralyzed.* This technique ensures patients have natural-looking results.* Dr. Rubinstein has performed this simple treatment on countless patients, including celebrity clients.
Chemical peels in Los Angeles
For an overall improvement in skin quality, including lines and wrinkles all over the face, chemical peels are an excellent option.* The Dermatology and Laser Centre offers a variety of peels at different strength levels to meet your needs and downtime requirements. After a peel, skin is smoother, brighter and rejuvenated in appearance, meaning that it can help address frown lines in conjunction with Botox treatments or even, on its own.*
