Repeated use of a muscle group may leave a permanent furrow between the brows. This furrow or line does not disappear, even with the muscle at rest. Often patients describe looking worried or anxious to others, when they clearly don’t feel this way. Sometimes, to treat these very deep lines at rest, the muscle i relaxed and the furrow filled with a filler.
Frown lines at rest – Before and After injectable facial muscle relaxants
The first image is the patient’s own photo prior to muscle relaxants and the second, several weeks after her first muscle relaxant treatment. She is not frowning in either photo.This is an example of a deep line at rest, which may have required a filler since it was not a dynamic wrinkle but responded very well to muscle relaxation.
Regular treatment will minimise the appearance of these frown lines..
Assessment is always required, since there is much individual variation.
