Frown lines are deep vertical lines formed between the eyebrows over time, either as a result of aging, sun damage or in younger persons, due to repeated dynamic facial expressions such as squinting and frowning. These lines are also commonly referred to as glabellar lines, worry lines or the ’11s’.

The appearance of frown lines is often the heralding of facial aging, an indication of the need for improved skin care.

Simply by reducing the appearance of frown line between the eyebrows, a lot of persons report feeling more refreshed and welcoming especially in their places of work and their social lives.
