Furrowed Brows & Fine Lines- Everything You Need To Know

Did you know that the furrowed brows and frown lines between your brows are the main cause of a “Resting Bitch Face”? The tissue between the brows is gathered or knitted into a fold to form frown lines. They result from the repetitive action of the underlying muscles involved in face expression. The arched brow is generally regarded as being a little unsightly, but it can also be a sign of wisdom, excessive stress, or both. The long, horizontal lines that run partially or completely across the forehead from side to side are known as furrowed brows, and they are sometimes mistaken for frown lines that form between the eyebrows.

What causes forehead wrinkles and Furrowed Brows?

A furrowed brows can be a result of any of the several causes, including but not limited to:
  • Age- One of the common reasons for furrowed brows is the subject that no one likes to talk about. Simply put, as we age, our bodies create less collagen, which causes our skin to be become dry and shriveled.
  • Facial Expressions- The skin between our brows, on the bridge of the nose, across the forehead, and at the corners of the eyes are the areas that commonly develops deep wrinkles over time, as a result frequent squinting and frowning.
  • Smoking- Smoking breaks down collagen, which is the main component for skins elasticity, which results to saggy skin and fine lines.
  • UV Light- The integrity of the skin’s underlying layers is compromised as a result of UV rays from the sun penetrating the skin’s outer layer. In addition, collagen formation is often inhibited.
  • Dehydration– The daily water requirement for the average woman is 6 to 8 glasses. EVERY DAY. Your skin will dry out and become wrinkled if you don’t drink enough water. This is so that all your organs may benefit from the water you drink, including your skin, which is one of the last to do so.
How to get rid of Frown Lines and Furrowed Brows?
So, How do you stop a brow furrow? Frown line and furrowed brows often give off an unhappy or angry expression on people, which takes away from their otherwise pleasant facial appearances. The majority of people think that furrowed brows and frown lines is unavoidable due to age. Or, at the least, incurable. But actually it is treatable!
Clinically, there are two primary methods of treating furrowed brows and fine lines:

Neuromodulators (i.e., Botox; Dysport; Xeomin)

Botox
Botox is botulinum toxin A in its purified form. The muscular tissues that generate furrowed brows and other wrinkles and fine lines are relaxed over the period of roughly a week (more or less) by this substance, which is injected into the skin beneath the wrinkle, fold, or forehead lines. The effectiveness of Botox and comparable medications can be astounding. Because of this, it has become as the most often used cosmetic treatment worldwide. If there is a drawback, it is that Botox and comparable procedures can be pricey and that the results often subside after 4 to 6 months.

Soft-tissue fillers (i.e., Belotero; Juvederm; Radiesse; Restylane/Perlane; Sculptra; Voluma)
Soft- tissue fillers There are two main groups into which dermal fillers fall. They either stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin or they merely fill the area into which they are injected. The fillers that encourage the development of collagen and elastin do so by using hyaluronic acid. The skin can be made to appear smoother by having more collagen. Nevertheless, collagen is not produced instantly. Therefore, when receiving this kind of treatment, patience is required. The procedure for the other kind of filler is as simple as injecting an inert material into the furrowed brow to fill it in.

Another effective method is:

Forehead Lift
Similar to a regular face lift, a forehead lift involves drawing back extra skin from the face (in this case, the forehead), removing the extra skin, and then sewing the ends of the skin together. Without a doubt, the lift is a practical long-term fix. But it is not without drawbacks. If performed by a less skilled plastic surgeon, the patient can end up looking strange. Of course, there will be scars following any lift operation. In this instance, the scars will be visible around the hairline on the top of the forehead.

Here are six lifestyle changes you can incorporate in your daily routine to help fight furrowed brows and fine lines:

Drink Plenty of Water
While food is necessary to maintain your health and the health of your skin, water is definitely necessary. You may go up to three weeks without food, but only three days without water, so keep that in mind. We therefore advise that you drink at least eight cups of water each day in order to give your skin the best possible chance of being smooth and supple. Even though it can seem like a lot, it’s actually not. Here’s a straightforward two-step plan for squeezing it all in:

  • Drink two cups of water with breakfast, lunch, and dinner (that’s six cups!).
  • Sip on a water bottle between meals (that two more cups!).

Add Supplements in your Diet We suggest adding certain skin-smoothing supplements to your daily diet such us:
  • Collagen- The support system that keeps your skin smooth and wrinkle-free is largely made up of collagen. Unfortunately, as you age, that collagen may start to break down. That may result in wrinkles and unpleasant furrowed brows.
  • Vitamin C- Vitamin C acts as a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes these free radicals and preserves the support structure that prevents wrinkles.
  • Flaxseed Oil- Inflammation is another important factor in collagen deterioration. Numerous things, such as sun exposure, environmental pollutants, and even substances in your diet, can promote inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acids included in flaxseed oil act as antioxidants to reduce this inflammation.
