Botox for Furrow Lines
The glabella is the area between the eyebrows, the flat center on the lower forehead. This prominent space is often scrunched together when you squint, frown or concentrate, creating dynamic vertical lines. The “11’s” or furrow lines in the glabella area are a common issue and one of the first lines to appear on the face with age. Botox was the original cosmetic injection that was FDA-approved as a treatment for furrow or frown lines, and it is still one of the best options to smooth the glabella. At Avance Plastic Surgery Institute, we offer Botox for furrow lines during a quick visit to our clinic in Reno/Tahoe, NV.
Known as furrow, glabella, 11’s or frown lines, these wrinkles are usually an unwelcome addition to the brow. The lines can create a grumpy appearance to the face, and they are tell-tale signs of aging, even though they can appear as early as the ’20s or ’30s. Furrow lines, which can appear before other wrinkles, are caused by collagen loss. They are also one of the facial lines that facial filler injections are not as effective in treating. Botox, or other neuromodulator injections, are the preferred treatment for glabella or frown lines, even for younger patients.
Smoothing Glabella 11’s and Frown Lines
Botox works by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscle contractions. For smoothing the glabella 11’s, Dr. Dayan uses several injections to target the muscle that causes these dynamic lines between the brows. Botox is well-tolerated and safe, and it has been used for decades with beautiful results. However, the quality of results can be affected by the skill used when determining the right dose and placement. Our medical director and plastic surgeon, Dr. Erez Dayan, ensures all our patients receive precise Botox treatment to create natural-appearing results.
Botox can be performed in a few minutes, with results noticeable in a few days, and they typically last for 3-4 months.
