Botox for Furrow Lines
Vertical creases between your eyebrows can appear on your face from constant squinting or scrunching. Furrow lines, often called the 11’s, between your eyebrows can make you appear stressed, tired and angry. Botox injections for furrow lines is a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that can help smooth your skin for a more youthful appearance.
How Botox for Furrow Lines Works
The procedure with Botox for furrow lines takes about 15 to 30 minutes. This neurotoxin is injected into the muscles of the glabella. The transmission of nerve impulses that cause muscles to contract are blocked to create a smooth and relaxed appearance. If the lines are deep, dermal fillers may be used to help create a smoother aesthetic effect.
After the procedure, you may resume your normal daily activities. Strenuous activities may need to be avoided for a day. Cold compresses help with any swelling that may occur. The results of Botox for furrow lines can last up to four months. Treatments will need to be repeated in order to maintain results.
