How to Eliminate Frown Lines

October 19, 2015

Who needs frown lines? When frown lines start to show up, you want to know what your options are to smooth them away. Dermatology treatments range from creams you buy over the counter to injectable fillers that temporarily diminish them or more extensive treatments such as laser therapies.

Chronic stress will almost guarantee your chances of getting frown lines or deepening the ones you already have. Using your frown muscles weakens your collagen and causes restriction of blood vessels which cuts off the natural flow of blood to your face. So reduce your stress levels and worry less. Also using a sunscreen each day can reduce damaging effects of UV rays on your skin. Are you a smoker? Smoking definitely adds to frown lines, not to mention it leaves your skin looking drab and leathery.

Frown lines naturally occur as you age because the elasticity of your skin becomes weaker. The forehead develops lines and furrows from concentrating or frowning.

Skin Creams

Skin creams such as topical retinoid treatment encourage collagen production and can help smooth frown lines. These treatments are often available only by prescription. However, you can buy some without a prescription. Creams with retinol, alpha hydroxy acids or other inflammation fighters can help reduce frown lines with regular use.

Dermabrasion or microdermabrasion can be performed by a dermatologist or aesthetician. This procedure removes dead layers of skin and encourages new cell growth.

chemical peel application also can remove layers of skin. This procedure boosts skin healing and reveals fresh, new skin underneath. Laser treatments can also penetrate the skin, stimulating new cell growth.


Injectable fillers can help fill the frown line furrows and reduce the appearance of deep lines. Popular fillers include botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid. The results and timeframe that fillers will endure vary so discuss treatment options with your board-certified dermatologist.

Minimally Invasive Procedures
