At Amara, our anti-wrinkle injections are performed by addressing ‘areas’. This is important because the areas are very specific to the types of lines people are looking to address. While some people have one area concerns, other people are concerned with multiple areas. We can treat single areas or multiple areas in combination depending on your individual concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are frown lines?
Frown lines, also referred to as “11” lines, are the distinctive vertical creases that can be observed between the eyebrows and on the forehead.. They are caused by repetitive facial muscle movements, particularly when frowning or squinting. Over time, these repeated movements contribute to the formation of wrinkles and lines, giving a furrowed or aged appearance to the forehead and the area between the eyebrows.
How to get rid of frown lines?
e are several treatment options available to reduce the appearance of frown lines. These include:
Anti-wrinkle injections: these injections can temporarily relax the muscles that cause frown lines, leading to a smoother appearance.
Dermal fillers: Injectable fillers containing substances like hyaluronic acid can be used to fill in and plump up frown lines, reducing their visibility.
Laser treatments can stimulate collagen production and improve the texture and appearance of frown lines.
Chemical peels: These involve applying a chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates the outer layer, promoting new skin growth and reducing the appearance of frown lines.
Microdermabrasion: This procedure involves gently removing the outer layer of skin using tiny exfoliating crystals, reducing the appearance of frown lines
Does the procedure hurt?
The level of discomfort experienced during frown line removal procedures can vary depending on the specific treatment chosen and individual pain tolerance. All the treatments cause minimal discomfort and even so, in the case of dermal fillers, many contain a local anesthetic called lidocaine, which helps numb the treated area and minimize discomfort during the procedure.
In te case of laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion may cause some mild discomfort, often described as a sensation of heat, tingling, or mild stinging. The intensity of the discomfort can vary depending on the individual and the depth of treatment.
How long does the procedure take?
The duration of frown line removal procedures can vary depending on the specific treatment and the individual’s needs. Depending on what you choose, it can range from 15 minutes to 2 hours at most.
What are the potential risks or side effects?
While frown line removal treatments are generally considered safe, they can carry potential risks and side effects. The specific risks depend on the type of treatment used. Common side effects may include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the treatment site.
Can injections get rid of deep frown lines?

The injection works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that contribute to the formation of frown lines, resulting in a smoother appearance. However, it’s important to note that to maintain the results, repeat treatments are usually necessary.
How to reduce frown lines?

Avoid repetitive facial expressions that contribute to the formation of frown lines.

Use skincare products that contain retinol or other ingredients known to promote collagen production and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Are frown lines permanent?
Frown lines can be either temporary or permanent, depending on various factors such as age, genetics, and lifestyle. Temporary frown lines may disappear with time or through the use of cosmetic treatments like those mentioned above
How long does the treatment last?
These treatments offer temporary results, and the effects will gradually wear off over time. For longer-lasting or more permanent results, more invasive procedures such as surgical facelifts or brow lifts may be considered. These surgical options can provide more enduring improvements by repositioning the underlying tissues and removing excess skin. It’s crucial to consult with a qualified medical professional who can assess your specific situation and recommend the most suitable treatment
