A Good Reason to Smile Again: Frown Lines Treatment
Signs of aging such as smile lines or laugh lines are bad enough, but frown lines - the furrows that form in the brow - are where many people draw the line. Frown lines can make people look considerably older or angrier than they actually are. Fortunately, there are a number of excellent solutions to frown lines, from the non-surgical to world-class facial cosmetic surgery.
At Millennium Medical, our state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery center in Washington DC, frown lines treatment is customized to meet the unique needs and goals of each individual patient. Patients emerge from treatment looking more youthful, refreshed, and vibrant. Whichever type of treatment you decide is best suited to your case, you can count on Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael to produce results of the highest quality that will last for years, giving you the confidence and self-assurance that go along with looking and feeling your absolute best.
Non-surgical Treatment for Frown Lines: BOTOX® Injections
If you have moderate to severe frown lines but would prefer not to undergo an invasive surgical procedure, then you may be a good candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. By strategically injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles responsible for frown lines, Dr. Rassael can temporarily prevent those muscles from contracting without affecting the surrounding tissues. As a result, these muscles will relax, and the frown lines will fade, generally for a period of four to six months.
When administered by a trained, experienced professional such as Dr. Rassael, BOTOX® injections are extremely safe and effective. When the effects of treatment begin to wear off, the injections can safely be repeated. Contrary to many urban legends, when BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is performed by an experienced professional, the treatment does not affect normal facial expression whatsoever. It targets only those muscles responsible for wrinkles such as frown lines and leaves other tissues completely undisturbed.
Surgical Treatment for Frown Lines: Brow Lift
While BOTOX® Cosmetic yields excellent short-term results, patients who are seeking an outstanding long-term solution to frown lines may want to consider brow lift surgery. Brow lift surgery takes into account the tissues in the upper third of the face, including the forehead and the space between the eyebrows. Dr. Rassael uses the most advanced technologies and techniques to produce the best possible results through the most subtle and discreet possible incisions.
The brow lift procedure is similar to other lift procedures. Dr. Rassael places small incisions in the upper brow, behind the hairline. Through these incisions, he tightens and repositions the muscles of the brow and removes any excess fat and other tissues. He then pulls the skin taut, removing any excess, and sutures the incisions closed. Once the brow heals, it appears dramatically smoother and younger, with results that can last for years, especially when patients are committed to leading healthy post-surgical lifestyles.
