Get Rid Of Those No. 11 Wrinkles Between The Brows

Tired of those imperfect 11 number lines on your forehead? Worried that you might be getting old? Wrinkles don’t always indicate the signs of old age; there are other factors than age that might cause those creases to creep up on your forehead and also on other parts of your face, whether they are vertical or horizontal.

There’s nothing more annoying than standing in front of the mirror and staring at the vertical line etched between the brows on your face that give your face an “angry face emoticon” look, even when you are not angry. A lot of things and bad habits can result in lines and grooves ranging from smoking to the way you sleep on your pillow. A less obvious cause of wrinkles however are the repeated expressions you make.

How are No. 11 wrinkles in your forehead formed?

A wrinkle or frown lines are typically formed perpendicular to a contracting muscle located directly beneath it. As an example, the muscle in your forehead is what is termed a vertical muscle. When you raise your eyebrows e.g it contracts forming horizontal wrinkles.

Similarly the duo muscles that control for the frown lines are located slightly horizontally close to the eyebrows. When these contract, the frown lines will appear vertical.

The process that makes the wrinkles between the brows disappear:

Here’s how you can get rid of those wrinkles between the brows:

Here at Skin Hampshire when we inject wrinkle reduction treatment into the muscles, it blocks nerve impulses to those tissues. The muscle activity that causes the frown lines thus is reduced and a smoother look forms up. Without a contracting muscle beneath it, the skin has a difficult time wrinkling and the wrinkles between the brows begin to disappear.

For candidates whose facial lines even appear with a relaxed face are not very good subjects for Wrinkle reduction treatment . You would be better served by dermal fillers. Wrinkle reduction treatment can also be used frequently to “soften” these lines but it’s not always the best way to be rid of them. Wrinkle reduction treatment is therefore recommended highly for the treatment of wrinkles between the brows more likely than the wrinkles that are on the other parts of the face.

 The injections take about 10 minutes, and you should have no downtime afterward.

Normally you would see improvement within a few days. Wrinkle reduction treatment requires two to four days for it to attach to the nerve ending that would normally stimulate the muscle to contract and make those wrinkles between the brows to disappear. The maximum effect usually occurs at about 10-14 days.(Read more on our Wrinkle reduction treatment  Products)
