Frown lines, or ‘11s’, are one of the most common signs of ageing. These deep wrinkles form between your eyebrows. Frown lines are caused by years of facial muscle movement like frowning and squinting. Fortunately, there is a way to soften these wrinkles with frown filler injections. But what exactly do fillers do? How long does the effect last? And which option is best for treating frown lines? Read on to learn more about this popular anti-ageing treatment.
Can filler fix frown lines?
Dermal fillers plump up wrinkles and fill in hollow areas in the face. Dermal fillers can also create more symmetry and add volume to areas that have lost their fullness over time. Frown filler is perfect for filling in deep furrows and restoring a smoother appearance to the area between your eyebrows. Frown filler gives a more youthful look without surgery or downtime.
How long do fillers last in frown lines?
Frown filler typically lasts anywhere from six months to a year. How much was injected and how quickly your body breaks down dermal fillers will affect how long the results last. Some people may need touch-ups sooner than others due to their habits. Sunbathing or smoking cigarettes can reduce how long your fillers last. With good skincare and routine, you can enjoy long-lasting results from frown filler injections. It’s important to note that fillers aren’t permanent; if you don’t like the results of your treatment you can simply wait for it to wear off and try something else.

Frequently asked questions
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to add volume to the lips. The most common type of filler is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the human body that helps keep skin hydrated and plump. When HA is injected it adds volume and definition to give them a youthful look.
How painful are dermal fillers?
The pain level will vary depending on the type of dermal filler being used and the area being treated, but dermal fillers generally cause some minor discomfort. Most patients describe dermal fillers as just uncomfortable, with a burning or biting sensation when the filler is injected into the tissue. Fortunately, we offer numbing creams or local anesthetics, which can help minimize any discomfort experienced during dermal fillers.
Are there any risks involved?
Like any medical procedure, there are some risks associated with dermal filler injections—namely bruising, swelling, redness and pain at the injection site.

- Additionally, it is advised not to massage or apply pressure to the injection site in order to give the filler enough time to settle and achieve desired effects.
How can you make the reults last?

- avoiding cigarettes and excessive alcohol.
You should also visit your doctor for regular follow-up appointments. This will help them monitor the dermal filler’s progress and provide assistance if there are any issues.
