Lately, I’ve been seeing more and more men and women in their 30’s who are requesting something to address the creases they have between their eyebrows. The furrow in their brow that they wake up with in the morning seems to hang around longer than it used to!
The answer to this is: Botox! It might seem scary at first, and some 30-40 year olds are afraid that they may be starting with Botox too soon. But it turns out that Botox is a great remedy for treating these lines. The wrinkles in the area between the eyebrows (known as the “glabella”) are due to the persistent action of the underlying muscles called the “corrugators.”
An injection of Botox into these corrugator muscles will paralyze the muscles for 3-4 months. The result is a disappearance of these lines in most cases! The Botox injection procedure takes just a couple minutes, isn’t too painful, and risks are minimal. By starting Botox in your 30s or 40s you can help ensure that the lines in this area don’t become permanent. Check out our Botox gallery.
