What are Glabellar Lines?
The glabella is the area of the forehead in between the eyebrows. Often, as we speak and express ourselves, we tend to use and overuse the muscles in the area. Contraction of these muscles results in a frown, the angry look. In most people these lines form two vertical wrinkles in between the eyebrows, often referred as 'the number 11'. In some people these lines can be horizontal.
These lines can either be dynamic or static and most people find that friends and family tend to comment that they look angry or appear to be in a bad mood when in fact they are perfectly happy.
This area can be treated with Botulinum toxin A in a simple, straightforward and relatively painless manner. In fact, it is the commonest area treated with Botox.
Sometimes, when the lines in this area are static (present when not contracting the muscles) or if they are very deep, dermal fillers can be used to fill out the wrinkle.
Botox (Botulinum Toxin) injections for Glabellar Lines
Glabellar lines can be treated very effectively with targeted Botox injections. Botox is usually the best solution for these lines because it works by weakening or paralysing the muscles so that the lines soften and ideally disappear. The preferred treatment of glabellar lines is Botox injections altough Dermal fillers can also be used.
We offer Botox injections for the treatment of glabellar lines because they are a safe, approved and non-surgical solution to many of the wrinkles and facial changes commonly associated with ageing. Botox is a temporary solution and its effects are fully reversible. Although its full benefit may not be seen for a couple of weeks after a treatment, the effects of Botox typically last for about three to four months. Botox injections are quick and convenient to administer and Bellissima offers some of the most competitive Botox prices.
