What is it and what is the cause?
Like Crows feet, these lines are caused by muscle movement creating expression lines, which, over time, as our skin becomes thinner and less elastic, begin to show even when we are not making that expression. Our clients say it makes them look “ tired”, “stressed” or “worried” all the time. The stress of todays demanding lifestyle certainly plays a part as well as smoking, sun damage, natural ageing and of course, they can be hereditary.
As with all treatments for lines caused by muscle movement, Botox is very effective at stopping the movement and preventing the lines getting more pronounced and would be considered first line treatment.
However, for those who would prefer not to go down that line of treatment, other treatments that re-stimulate collagen can have a softening effect on the lines such as Radio Frequency, Peels, Micro Needling and IPL Skin Rejuvenation. Please note these type of treatments will not stop the lines happening and continuing to develop in the skin.
2 areas of Botox are required to treat this area (frown and forehead) and the cost is £250.
