What causes frown lines?

Frown lines, also known as 11s, start to become noticeable in our 30s. Initially, they only show when we furrow our brows, but with time, they start to show even when we are not frowning. Frown lines are caused by repeated movement, sun damage, normal aging, and genetics.


How to Get Rid of Frown Lines?

The best treatment for frown lines is neuromodulators such as Xeomin, Botox, or Dsyport. Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport are FDA-approved for treating dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport temporarily inhibit muscle movement, preventing the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. Dynamic wrinkles are lines caused by muscle movement, such as frowning, raising your forehead, or smiling.

What are the benefits of Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport?

  • Erase fine lines and wrinkles
    • Frown Lines (11s, between your eyebrows)
    • Forehead Lines
    • Crow’s Feet (lines around your eyes)
  • Refreshed appearance in just 1 week
  • Minimally invasive with no downtime or recovery

What results can I expect from Neuromodulators?

Frown lines can be significantly reduced and even erased with Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport. In just one week, your frown lines will significantly soften, and some will even disappear. Results depend on the extent of your wrinkles and the strength of your muscles. Sometimes, multiple treatments are needed to achieve a significant improvement. Treatment results typically last 3.5 months; some patients still notice benefits at 6 months.

What else do we use Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport for?

Facial Contouring

Do you use makeup for contouring? At St. Louis Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery, we use Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport. These treatments can enhance the appearance of your cheekbones by narrowing the soft tissue below to create a more contoured look. We inject your masseter muscle to help sculpt your lower face and accentuate your cheeks.

Brow Lift

Want an eyebrow lift without surgery? We use Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport to give you a non-surgical eyebrow lift for a more refreshed look. We relax the muscles, pulling your eyebrows down, giving your eyebrows a natural lift.

Nefertiti Lift

The Nefertiti Lift was named after Queen Nefertiti, an Egyptian Pharaoh revered for her beauty and power. We use Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport to relax the muscles pulling down on your jawline and the muscles that cause neck bands. This produces a lifting and tightening of the jawline and a toned and smooth neck without surgery.

TMJ, Teeth Grinding, or Jaw Pain?

If you have TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder), grind your teeth at night, or wake up with jaw pain, you might notice a significant improvement with Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport. Your masseter muscles, which help you chew, maybe overactivated and enlarged. We use Xeomin and Botox to help these muscles relax. This helps improve your TMJ, teeth grinding, or jaw pain. Patients are amazed at the results this treatment provides.

Gummy Smile

Do your gums show when you smile? We can relax the overactive muscles pulling up on your lip with Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport. When these muscles are relaxed, only your teeth will show when you smile. We are not dentists, but we all love a beautiful smile!

What is the difference between Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport?

Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport are all neuromodulators FDA approved for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles of the forehead, glabella (frown lines), and eyes (Crow’s feet).
