Using Botox for Wrinkles Between Eyebrows

When aging becomes more noticeable, it can be difficult to come to terms with—especially when you begin to notice deep wrinkles between the eyebrows. From the moment you spot them, you can’t help but feel like everyone who looks you in the eyes is seeing these “number 11” lines. These vertical wrinkles between the brows aren’t the most flattering, but luckily, they can be fixed with Botox!

How Wrinkles Between Eyebrows Develop

To put it simply, using the muscles in your face leads to wrinkles. You use facial muscles constantly—especially every time you frown, smile, squint, grimace or scowl. Over time, grooves form underneath your skin from these expressions. When you’re younger your skin bounces right back, but as you age, it loses its elasticity and can stay stuck in these grooves.

A common example of getting “stuck in a groove”; the lines that form around the mouth from pursing your lips to smoke cigarettes. Repeatedly using those muscles, combined with the natural effects of aging, results in the skin falling into the grooves. The same is true for number 11 lines, as your forehead plays a large role in most expressions and creates grooves between the eyebrows.

Quickly Regain Smooth, Natural-Looking Skin with Botox

Botox goes right to the source of the problem—the muscles! Botox injections block signals from the nerve to the muscle, reducing muscle activity and temporarily preventing them from contracting and forming wrinkles between eyebrows.

Some are apprehensive about getting Botox because of the stereotype that it freezes the face. However, Botox injections simply relax the muscles under the face—and with the expert touch of Donna Bierut and the staff at Tri Valley Health & Aesthetics, you can feel confident in your results.
