Frown Lines Causes and Risk Factors

The “11 lines” develop primarily due to the repeated contraction of facial muscles, exposure to the sun’s damaging UV rays, and the passage of time. Additional factors that can heighten your risk include genetic predisposition and smoking. Identifying these triggers and understanding the environmental factors is essential for both treatment and prevention.

Symptoms and Clinical Presentation

Frown lines present as vertical creases or wrinkles that commonly appear between the eyebrows. The severity of these lines can vary, ranging from fine, barely noticeable lines to more pronounced and deep-set wrinkles.

Diagnosis and Treatment

Our experienced team at Springhouse Dermatology identifies glabellar lines through a visual examination. We understand that each patient is unique, and offer a range of treatment options tailored to address your specific needs and preferences. A few of our most popular treatments are Botox, Daxxify, and dermal filler for frown lines.

Botox Frown Lines Treatment

Botox injections are a highly effective treatment option to address frown lines. This non-invasive procedure involves injecting a neurotoxin into the underlying muscles responsible for creating those pesky lines. Botox frown lines treatment works by temporarily relaxing these muscles, which, in turn, smooths the appearance of the “11 lines”. The procedure is quick, virtually painless, and yields noticeable results within days. Patients love Botox for its ability to provide a rejuvenated and refreshed look without the need for surgery.


Daxxify is another innovative option available at Springhouse Dermatology. Similar to Botox, it utilizes botulinum toxin A to smooth moderate to severe frown lines. However, it’s the only treatment that uses a novel peptide as a stabilizing agent, which means it does not contain human or animal byproducts. It also has long-lasting effects – with results lasting 6 months on average.

Filler for Frown Lines

Fillers for frown lines represent another effective treatment option. These dermal fillers are injected beneath the skin to add volume and fill in wrinkles or lines. They plump up the skin and fill in creases, providing immediate results. The longevity of results can vary depending on the type of filler used, but it typically lasts from several months to a year or more.

Frown Line Prevention

Preventing frown lines involves a combination of lifestyle choices and skin care practices. While it’s impossible to stop the aging process, these tips can help minimize the development of glabellar lines and maintain a more youthful appearance:

  • Sunscreen: Wear SPF 30+ daily to shield your skin from UV damage.
  • No Smoking: Smoking accelerates skin aging and wrinkle formation.
  • Hydration: Drink plenty of water for skin elasticity.
  • Balanced Diet: Eat fruits, veggies, lean proteins, and healthy fats.
  • Skincare Routine: Cleanse, moisturize, and use products with retinoids and hyaluronic acid.
  • Limit Alcohol: Excessive alcohol can dehydrate skin and promote aging.
  • Facial Expressions: Be mindful of facial expressions that over time cause lines. Botox and Daxxify can help with this! Many patients state that they are more mindful once starting a treatment regime.
