What are frown lines?

frown lines, anti-wrinkle injectionsFrown lines can make us appear more angry and tired than we feel. When we squint, look surprised, look angry, strain at a computer screen or raise our eyebrows, muscle movement causes frown lines to appear.

The most noticeable lines appear above the bridge of the nose in between the eyes. They are sometimes referred to as ‘eleven lines’.

Frown lines appear during expressive movement of the brow.



"As this was my first time getting anti-wrinkle injections, I was quite nervous about what to expect during and after the procedure. The doctor was amazing, very understanding. She explained the procedure in detail, continually putting me at ease and was very clear about when I should expect to see results. Overall I'm completely delighted with the experience and the results and will definitely be going back!"

How do frown lines affect our appearance?

Expressively, frown lines make us appear more angry than we might be. This is the most common cause of concern for people looking to have them treated.

Over time, over expression of your brow area can cause frown lines to become permanent. This has an ageing effect on our overall appearance.


Why anti wrinkle injections and not dermal fillers?

At Amara we don’t treat this area with dermal fillers for safety reasons. There are blood vessels that run up the side of the nose into the forehead that track near where frown lines form. A dermal filler treatment here may block them leading to serious complications and permanent damage.

For this reason we only treat frown lines with anti-wrinkle injections, also known as muscle relaxing injections . The product is safe to use in the brow and is extremely effective at reducing these dynamic lines.


What can I expect from my frown line treatment?

Clients who receive frown line treatment will notice their brow appears much smoother and they will look less tired, angry and much fresher.

Frown line treatment will also prevent the development of permanent creases over time.



Will I look ‘frozen’ or ‘done’?

Over treatment of the brow muscles is the big contributor to the ‘frozen look’ that is associated with poor treatment results. We tend to treat conservatively at your initial appointment and top up as required at your review.

At Amara, our ‘subtle, natural results’ approach means we are particularly careful with dosing when treating in this area – this is The Amara Way.

With all anti-wrinkle treatments, it is possible to increase your dose at review, but it’s not possible to soften it until the product wears off.



Frequently Asked Questions

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.

There 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 resurfacing: 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.

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.

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.

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.

Yes. They can be effective in reducing the appearance 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.

  • Protect your skin from the sun by wearing sunscreen with a high SPF.
  • Avoid repetitive facial expressions that contribute to the formation of frown lines.
  • Stay hydrated and maintain a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet.
  • Use skincare products that contain retinol or other ingredients known to promote collagen production and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

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.

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.

The most effective treatment for frown lines can vary depending on individual factors, preferences, and the severity of the frown lines. Your doctor will indicate the best procedure for you, according to many factors.

At Amara we only use the highest quality products which is why we use Allergan's anti-wrinkle product and not a cheaper biosimilar (generic) product. It is FDA approved and the most studied of its kind which means we can stand by its clinical profile.

I’m with with Amara Clinic since 2010, and I’m so satisfied with their services and affordable procedures and products. Dr. Paul, Dr. Mylene and other doctors are very well experienced and efficient. Siobhan is lovely, she helped me with my skin when my hyperpigmentations flared up.A million thanks Amara Clinics, for making me youthful looking.❤️❤️❤️

Dr Mylene is fantastic..she really listens to your concerns and makes sure you get the best results possible. I have had several treatments at Amara with Dr Paul and more recently with Dr Mylene and the treatments are of the highest quality and thr Dr's are so friendly and professional. I have tried other places for my treatments as I live a good distance away from the clinic , but I always return to Amara .

My mom and I went here recently for hydra facials and were so impressed! Everything was explained in detail with plenty of time allocated to the appointment, no rushing, absolutely no hard sell on products and kind service all the way around! My mom saw Gráinne and I saw Julia - both of them were amazing and got us set up with routines that are suitable and simple to follow. Skin is glowing! Robin at reception was so helpful and friendly and got us booked in again for follow ups - can’t wait!

I have had quite a few Hydrafacials at different clinics in Dublin, and back home in Copenhagen as well, but this clinic is so far the best.The therapist was lovely and she just really knew what she was doing. She made me feel very comfortable and relaxed while guiding me through the treatment.I also had a lot of questions regarding skin care and products because I have had some problems with acne and she took her time to answer all my questions without making me feel pressured to buy the products she was recommending me, which is important to me.I found my visit to the clinic to be excellent. The staff was welcoming and well-trained.Most importantly, my skin just felt and looked amazing afterwards.

I love this clinic!! I have been going here for over 5 years and although it is a huge trek for me I won’t ever go anywhere else for my skincare. The doctors and staff are so friendly and helpful and I cannot stress this point enough. I am not the kind of girl that gets regular facials or would follow a strict 6 step nightly skin regime. In fact, I would normally find this type of place daunting because I often feel judgement for not “being better” with this stuff. At Amara I have never felt like this. Everyone there always makes me feel so comfortable and genuinely wants to help me feel the best I can. I haven’t yet mentioned the results which are always incredible from the few things I’ve had done there . I am always so happily surprised by the results and the clinic is always so amazing with follow up appointments if necessary. I cannot vouch enough for this clinic!

From the moment you enter the clinic, you are greeted with lovely staff, the atmosphere is very calm and welcoming.A huge thank you to Siobhan for doing my hydrafacial, she made me feel very comfortable. Before the treatment she thoroughly explained the process and it's very evident that she is passionate in the work she does, she kept me informed of my facial every step of the way, and helped target my skin concerns along with great product recommendations. After my facial, I could instantly notice the difference on my skin.I will definitely reccomend amara clinic to my girlfriends and I look forward to coming back for more treatments.Thanks again!Ahlam
An unusual but very important review....Amara was very highly recommended to me by a colleague. I purchased a €2,000 voucher from Amara for my wife as a 50th birthday present. Needless to say, she was ecstatic. Due to Covid 19 financial difficulties, we reluctantly decided not to utilise the voucher and to request a refund....6 months later. These are terribly difficult times for businesses, so I felt more than a little embarassed and not very hopeful. I am 50 years old and have been around the block a few times, I have never encountered such professionalism and simple humanity. Never a question, I was fully refunded to my huge relief and complete satisfaction. This company clearly has a wonderful and primary customer care ethos. Their top, middle and bottom line is customer care - pure class. Sincerely, thank you Ronan and your team. We most certainly will be back.

My first visit to Amara (it won't be the last!) was excellent. Paul has such an easy manner, I felt very comfortable and at ease immediately. Everything was explained in detail so I knew exactly what was being done and why. There was no pushy sales technique - if anything it is evident that they will only do work that will benefit you - you won't pay for unnecessary treatments and any treatments you do have will be done with an emphasis on looking natural rather than 'done'. Very happy.

I can recommend Amara.Carolina makes you feel very welcome as soon as you arrive at this clinic.I had an Hydrafacial with Joanie that I will definitely indulge in again and also availed of her advice on their range of skin care products.I felt reassured by Dr Pauls pleasant unrushed manner and in particular with his conservative approach and natural results.He takes the time to explain what he is doing and why he thinks you need it which I like.I will definitely return.

I have been to Amara clinic a few times and the experience is always great. Today I had a Hydrafacial with Siobhan and I couldn't recommend it more. She took the time to review my skin routine, habits and explained to me the science behind our skin. The facial itself was great and my skin is feeling amazing. I will definitely be back!

Friendly, helpful staff that seem genuine.I didn't feel 'pushed' into buying products / services (which is what usually happens!)I am THAT person that asks LOTS of questions - *pedantic *, I see detail in everything and easily pick flaws, but was grateful for the professionalism here. Appreciated they listened and answered my dozen questions... Usually dont take the time to write reviews but the clinic followed up with a text and I figure they deserve it! Thanks Guys - I will be back :-)
I'm more than thrilled about my decsion to go to Amara for lip fillers. I've been researching for a few years but was always to nervous to follow through with the procedure. Dr. Paul is very thorough and honest. He explained everything he would do to achieve the desired result. I asked him for subtlety and thats exactly what I received. I couldn't be happier with my filler treatment and my lips look 100% natural, which was exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much Dr. Paul!

I had my first hyrdafacial treatment here, and loved it so much I’ve already booked another! The treatment itself is amazing, my skin was left feeling wonderful, and the benefits were noticeable straight away, and I my skin was noticeably soft and smooth for several weeks after the treatment. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. My therapist Joanie was lovely, and incredibly knowledgeable of the whole process, and really thorough when reviewing my skin needs. I would highly recommend the whole experience with Amara :)

Excellent professional friendly service from the minute you step inside the door with the lovely karolinaI have used a couple of different clinics in the past but this clinic is second to none .It's 5* plus , I've been coming here maybe two years nowIt's very important to receive proffessionl knowledge when having any facial procedures and this is what you get , this clinic is not just interested in taking your money but doing what is going to look natural and not the "done look " I have had treatments with the lovely Joanie in the past she's amazing highly recommend her for her knowledge and patience , her recommendations on prouducts that actully do work and Dr Paul is excellent at what he does , thank you and look forward to coming back in the near future .
I would highly recommend Dr Paul Munsanje for tear trough filler. I'm so delighted with the results! I had become quite sunken and dark under the eyes, after one visit there was an immediate and significant improvement. I no longer look tired all the time and don't need anymore concealer. There was a small amount of bruising for a few days afterwards but nothing that makeup couldn't hide. A real natural look - happy days!!

Had an amazing hydrafacial from Siobhan yesterday. She’s meticulous in her work and incredibly good at breaking down the science of skin into simple terms so I understood exactly where my skin was at, what she was going to do to it, and what I could do going forward to improve it. As well as this she was a complete dote and easy to chat to. I felt really well looked after by herself and the front of house guys AND my skin looks incredible, I didn’t think skin could be this smooth. Highly recommend.
Absolutely recommend Amara and Dr Paul Munsanje for providing a truly professional and warm service with fantastic results. Was particularly impressed by a tear trough filler which was stunning in its immediate effect and virtually painless. Found Paul to be really experienced, informative and understanding, felt very comfortable having the procedures and also done easily on my lunch hour. Most importantly, he did exactly what I wanted but achieved a far better result than I was aware was possible, and made it seem so easy.. so very impressive. I feel it’s the best money I’ve spent in years, very very happy. Did try a different clinic a few years ago and didn’t find it very good but feel Amara is in a different league, will definitely go back to Amara. All of the clinic are just lovely and welcoming so I would also credit them with a great team in-house. Well worth a visit.
