Understanding Frown Lines – Banish the "11 Lines"

Frown lines, those pesky vertical creases that appear between our eyebrows, are often associated with expressions of concentration or displeasure.

These lines, also known as “11 lines” or glabellar lines, form when we furrow our brows, whether it’s due to concentration, peering at our screens, or moments of frustration.

At Secret Aesthetics in Birmingham, we understand the impact these lines can have on your appearance and confidence. That’s why we offer effective Botox treatments to address and diminish frown lines.

About Frown Lines and Botox at Secret Aesthetics

As we age, fine lines and wrinkles are an inevitable part of life.

The extent and timing of their appearance are influenced by both genetics and environmental factors. What many people may not realize is that wrinkles come in various forms, each with its own causes and solutions. Repeated muscle movements over the years lead to creases and wrinkles, most noticeably on our faces when we make specific expressions. These lines, known as “dynamic lines,” are the ones we target with anti-wrinkle injections.

Botox (Botulinum toxin) type A, used at Secret Aesthetics in Birmingham, is a purified neurotoxin derived from Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It works by blocking muscle impulses, temporarily limiting muscle movement. Our clinical-grade cosmetic Botox is prescription-only, extracted, and purified for safety. When injected, it softens and relaxes the lines and wrinkles caused by underlying muscle contractions, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. While there’s currently no reversal agent, the body naturally breaks down Botox over months, allowing muscle movement to gradually return. By reducing muscle activity, the skin has time to rest and recover, softening and eventually fading creases and wrinkles. The dosage and treatment regime can be tailored at Secret Aesthetics in Birmingham to achieve natural softening of expressions or complete skin texture smoothing. Initially, more frequent treatments may be required to “re-educate” the muscles.

We recommend starting Botox before dynamic lines become deep static lines, which are present even without expression. The ideal timing varies among individuals, influenced by genetics, smoking, sun exposure, and other lifestyle factors. In essence, the earlier you start at Secret Aesthetics in Birmingham, the easier it is to correct and smooth out these lines.

Botox can also be used prophylactically to prevent wrinkles and fine lines from becoming deeply etched into the skin, a particularly beneficial approach for those with a genetic predisposition.

The Botox Procedure for Frown Lines at Secret Aesthetics

Your journey at Secret Aesthetics in Birmingham begins with a comprehensive consultation, facial analysis, and a review of your medical history and personal expectations by our experienced doctor.

The treatment itself involves precise, controlled doses of Botox injected intramuscularly across the targeted areas using a microneedle. While generally not painful, some individuals may experience mild stinging discomfort. The procedure is typically completed in just 15 minutes, depending on the number of areas treated.

Possible Side Effects of Botox

Immediately after the procedure at Secret Aesthetics in Birmingham, you may commonly experience tenderness and redness in the treated area, which can last up to 72 hours.

A few individuals may notice a headache, usually resolving within 48 hours.

While bruising is usually minimal, some individuals are more prone to it, with healing taking longer. At Secret Aesthetics in Birmingham, we conduct a thorough medical evaluation to reduce this risk and advise limiting alcohol intake for 48 hours before and after the procedure to facilitate recovery.

Your Results for Botox Treatments

Results typically become noticeable in 4-10 days, lasting 3-6 months.

Initially, you may notice some muscle movement returning after 1 month, which is normal. This period varies from person to person and may require adjustments in future Botox doses. With regular treatments over a few years at Secret Aesthetics in Birmingham, your muscles “re-train,” reducing the need for frequent top-ups.

Aftercare Recommendations For Botox

Aftercare involves avoiding touching, makeup application, and massage of treated areas for 12 hours.

At Secret Aesthetics in Birmingham, we recommend that you avoid lying down for 4 hours following the procedure to prevent Botox from tracking into the orbit of your eye, potentially causing eyelid drooping. After this initial period, you can sleep in any position.

Additionally, we advise against touching, applying makeup, massaging, or rubbing the treated areas for 12 hours, including any facials. This helps minimize the risk of Botox spreading from its intended area. Exercise should be avoided for 24 hours, and extensive sun exposure or heat, such as hot showers/saunas/steam rooms, should be avoided for 48 hours. We also recommend refraining from alcohol consumption for 24 hours.

Other treatable areas with Botox include:

Treatable Areas

Forehead Lines – Also known as ‘Horizontal lines’ are lines which appear and eventually become permeant from repeated raising of the eye brows.

Crows Feet – Lines that develop around the outer corner of our eyes, often become visible when we smile

Eye bag Wrinkles – Creases seen underneath and around our eyes more medial than crows feet. This treatment is often complimented with our 3-in-1 Eye Rejuvenation or with Crows Feet treatment

Cobblestone Chin – Ever noticed a bumpy uneven texture to your chin when you’re lifting your lips? Try pursing your lips together or pouting. If you notice dimpling of the skin that is bothering you, Botox can be injected to smooth the skin texture out

Bunny Lines  – Wrinkles seen on the sides of the nose, often when smiling or scrunching your tightly.

Gummy Smile – The effects of a strong levator labii muscles, causing gums to show when smiling.

Eyebrow Lift – In some people, a lift can be created on the ends of the eyebrows by injecting Botox in specific areas of the forehead and outer eye.
