Frown lines on the face can be troublesome and stubborn to eliminate. Frown lines are noticeable lines that appear on the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes, and on the bridge of the nose. Wrinkles fall into two main categories: dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles are caused when repetitive facial expressions are made. The constant use of muscles to frown and squint can cause deep lines to appear on the face. Static wrinkles occur when the skin loses its elasticity and collagen. These types of wrinkles are caused by age. After a while, an individual’s skin naturally loses its firmness and the skin develops an increasing amount of wrinkles and starts to sag. Luckily, there are several ways to reduce and remove frown lines.
There are FDA approved treatments, such as Botox® and Xeomin®, available to healthy adult individuals. There are also natural methods of treatment and at home anti-aging skin care products that can be used to remove frown lines.
Botox® and Xeomin® are injectable treatments administered by qualified health professionals to remove frown lines. They are a purified protein solution. This protein works to block acetylcholine from being released; thus, relaxing the muscles. The relaxed muscles create a firm and smooth appearance to the skin and help soften the appearance of wrinkles and creases.
Natural methods for removing frown lines are: getting enough sleep each night, implementing facial exercises, and having a healthy diet. Sleeping helps rest the body and replenish tired skin. Be sure to sleep in a supine position for optimal results. Certain facial exercises can contribute to the removal of frown lines and tone the skin. Massaging the lines downward for several sets and repetitions is a good exercise to try daily. Practicing good eating habits and staying hydrated will also help the skin. Vegetables and fruits contain many essential nutrients that help the skin stay healthy and looking young. That is why an abundance of vegetables and fruits should be consumed. Also, drinking plenty of water will make the skin look supple, clear, and healthy.
