If you’d like nothing more than to turn your frown upside down but can’t because of wrinkles, you know what a challenge frown lines can be. There are two types of wrinkles, dynamic ones, which are caused by movement, and static ones, which are etched into our skin and appear while the face is at rest. At Dermaworks Medical Aesthetics Clinic we have a couple of options to diminish those unwanted lines.

Botox or Dysport for Frown Lines

If you’re considering Botox or Dysport to combat your frown lines, you’re not alone. Botox is used to fight against dynamic wrinkles and is a relatively quick and easy fix. Injections only take a few seconds, and recovery time is minimal. During your visit with our physician, she will decide how many units of of the injection you’ll need. The price will vary from individual to individual.  Though it takes from three to seven days for the initial onset of injections, the effects last for three to four months.

Fillers for Frown Lines

Finding the fountain of youth doesn’t just involve Botox;fillers are often effective and necessary supplements for static wrinkles. Unlike Botox, which freeze the muscles around the frown line and prevent them from contracting, injectable cosmetic fillers fill the wrinkle and make the skin look smoother. Both of these types of injections can be completed at the same time and done in about a half an hour appointment. The results from fillers are instant and have the ability to last for up to twelve months!
