Frown Lines

Frown lines can range in severity from subtle to very significant creases that form between the eyebrows, that often serve as an unwelcome reminder of stress, age and repetitive facial expressions. While frown lines are a natural part of the aging process, modern advancements in non-surgical treatments offer an array of solutions designed to improve the appearance of frown lines.

Whether you seek subtle refinement or a dramatic improvement in your frown lines, it is important to understand the available treatment options so that you can make an informed decision regarding what treatment might be suitable for you.


Frown lines emerge from repetitive muscle contractions between the eyebrows, influenced by factors like stress and aging. Our treatment strategy employs specialised products that block neurotransmittiers, minimising the contraction of eye muscles. This focused treatment approach visibly diminishes the ‘eleven lines’ between the brows.

It is important to note that there is no immediate improvement in static lines (lines that are present at rest). However, following several non-surgical treatments, skin that is normally creased has time to rest and recover, and an improvement in static lines usually occurs.


Generally, after the first few sessions, the results last around two to three months. However, after regular treatments, the results can last longer because the treated muscles have been retrained.

If you cease the treatments, your muscles will return to normal, and your wrinkles will return to their previous state—they do not become worse.


Normal activities can be resumed soon after your treatment. However, you should avoid strenuous exercise or massaging the area for the first 24 hours after treatment.


Every non-surgical procedure involves a certain amount of risk, and it is important that you understand these risks and the possible complications associated. Majority of patients do not experience the following, but you should discuss each with your physician to ensure you understand.   

Common side effects may occur immediately or may be delayed.    

Pain, burning, stinging, bruising, swelling or redness at the injection site; local muscle weakness including drooping eyelids or eyebrows; swollen eyelids, skin tightness, itching or aching forehead, headaches, nausea and/or flu like symptoms.                                                                   

Although exceedingly rare, in some cases the effect of the product may be observed beyond the site of injection and the following symptoms may occur – loss of strength and muscle weakness, drooping of upper eyelid, double or blurred vision, trouble speaking, constipation, aspiration and trouble swallowing.  These symptoms can happen hours to weeks after injection and are more likely to occur in patients treated with high doses or who have underlying conditions that would predispose to the above.


The following are very common side effects after treatment and should resolve with time.  

  • Swelling at puncture sites   
  • Bruising 
  • Redness at puncture sites  
  • Tenderness   
  • Tightness  
  • You may experience a mild headache; Paracetamol may be taken if required.
