Frown lines

Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used for frown lines. Learn more about the options.

What is a frown line?

Vertical wrinkles that appear between the eyebrows over time are called frown lines (alternatively: glabellar wrinkles).

Since this wrinkle makes a person look angry or wrathful, that’s how the expression came about. The more pronounced this is, the more intense the effect of the person in question.

How can fillers help with frown lines?

With an anaesthetic cream or a vibration anaesthetic, the punctiform injections are hardly noticed. Usually 0.4 millilitres of hyaluronic acid is sufficient. Experience in injections and the treatment of complications are important for safe and good results.

In the hands of an experienced plastic surgeon, the risk of damage to the skin (necrosis) is 1:200,000 [1].
