Answer: Good afternoon Allione,
Thank you for your enquiry.
For the frown line the best option is preventation.
The frown line is formed from the contraction of the frown muscles and from the looss in collagen and elastin from the skin as we age.
As I said the best option is preventing that line from getting any deeper and this can be done by the use of anti wrinkle injections plus stimulation of the collagen with topical medical grade skin care, skinboosters, microneedling, laser, etc.
Botox only works on the muscle, not on the skin so it cannot make the skin thinner. However skin ageing is caracterized by thinning of the dermis, decreasese in collagen, elastin and hyluronic acid and that is why a conjuction of treatments is what is best.
If it is just the frown area that is concerning you, you could have botox as a preventative for the fown line not get any deeper and not in the forehead.
Dermal filler can be used in this area to fill the line however it is a high risk area and there is a risk of causing blindness. It is though the most effective way to fill the line. However eve if you are happy to take the risk I would always recomend botox to prevent it to get any deeper or reforming. The filler will last longer if both treatments are associated.
Other options would be microneedling but this will be even less effective than botox because it will only be stimulting the skin and you would need minimum of 6 seesions to see some results.
As you can see this is a complex subject and quite difficult to example all in detail as a written piece. What I would suggest is to come to see me for a consultation and decided what is best for you.
Looking forward hearing back from you.
