A furrowed brow may indicate worries and stress but is mainly due to the fact that the two proteins responsible for our skin's elasticity - collagen and elastin – are produced less and less by our bodies as we get older. Skin is no longer as supple and can’t spring back into place as quickly as it once did.
Too much sun exposure, natural gravity, excess facial movement and genetic pre-disposition are also factors in frown lines becoming apparent.
Botulinum toxin injections can treat frown lines by reversibly relaxing facial muscles to smooth unwanted frown wrinkles and stop deeper lines forming.
Botulinum toxin is a naturally purified protein often prescribed by doctors in the UK to treat medical conditions such as chronic migraines and is a popular and proven method for treating frown lines.
Administered properly by a fully qualified medical practitioner, botulinum toxin injections will visibly diminish frown lines but enable movement in your facial expressions to remain and avoid an unwanted frozen, ‘caught-in-the-headlights’ look. It normally takes 5-7 days for botulinum toxin frown line treatments to work.
At The Chloë Edit, we believe in helping you look great for your age in a completely natural and subtle way. We usually obtain good results after just a single injection.
“This underpins the philosophy that small changes on a face can have huge visual impact yet still remain understated and undetectable. This is the look of our time…”
Wrinkles and fine lines aren’t just tell-tale signs of ageing; brow frowns and wrinkles around the eyes, like crow’s feet, can also make you look tired or ‘hard’.
Botulinum toxin is actually an FDA-approved medicine and the most well-known brand is BOTOX®. BOTOX® is a very popular cosmetic treatment used to treat wrinkles on the face and neck.
Because BOTOX® injections are unregulated in the UK, it is essential to use a fully qualified practitioner such as The Chloë Edit to avoid anti-wrinkle treatment that may result in a frozen forehead or total lack of facial expression.
