One of the most common questions that I get asked is how to get rid of that pesky “11” between the brows. These line are also known as “frown lines” and happen as a result of constantly bringing the eyebrows together. This action of the underlying muscle causes the overlying skin to wrinkle. Initially, you may see the wrinkles only when you move but over time and with repeated movement the wrinkles become more permanent. On many people, these frown lines result in a sad or angry appearance and takes away from their overall appearance. The best treatment to improve the appearance of these lines is Botox. Botox reduces the underlying muscle movement, therefore, reducing the wrinkles and improving the overall appearance of the face.
