A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by sun and the environment.
Repeated muscle contractions from facial expressions including frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. Injectable’s such as Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) and Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA) provide a quick 10-minute treatment that works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults. This decrease in muscle activity allows for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH TREATMENT.
Some patients report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
Neither of these treatments will provide a permanent fix. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
