We often frown while expressing negative emotions like anger, disappointment, frustration or tiredness. This leads to the formation of vertical and horizontal lines on the forehead caused by contraction of the group of muscles. Botox is used to depress and weaken these muscles which cause a reduction in the frown lines and gives a more positive and relaxed facial profile. Some studies also indicated that the treatment of frown area with botox helps in elevating the mood and might prevent migraines and headaches.
Botox acts very well on the dynamic frown lines however static frown lines (deep frown lines visible at rest) may require a combination of treatment including botox and dermal fillers.
Treatment: This condition is typically treated by injecting 3-5 Botox injections in the frown lines area to relax the muscles. There are considerable variations in the strength of these muscles and often a stronger dose of Botox is needed to completely relax the muscle movements.
