How To Get Rid Of Frown Lines

Frown Lines

Looking to get rid of frown lines? Frown lines are the vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows. They look like the number 11 and are most noticeable when you furrow your brow in concentration or concern. 

They can become very deep and noticeable over time, sometimes giving the impression that you’re angry – even when you’re not!   

As these frown lines become more significant, they are much harder to cover with makeup, often causing foundation and concealers to crease on the skin, having the reverse effect and making them more noticeable. This can be very frustrating and even make you feel anxious or self-conscious.

What Causes Frown Lines?

Frown lines appear because your forehead muscles squeeze inwards as you furrow your brow, creasing the top layers of your skin. When your skin is young and hydrated, the collagen and elastin in the skin help it to hold its shape and spring back into a smooth appearance once you relax your brow. 

But as you age, your collagen and elastin decrease and your skin becomes less “springy”. Over time, the tissue around these muscles develops wrinkles that simply won’t smooth out.

Things that can contribute to frown lines include: 

  • Stress
  • Sun damage
  • Squinting
  • Ageing
  • Genetics
  • Smoking
  • Repeated muscle movement

The biggest changes occur in people during their 40s and 50s, but you can begin to see fine lines and wrinkles as early as your 30s.

How To Prevent Frown Lines?

While like many signs of ageing, frown lines can’t be totally avoided, you can lessen the appearance of frown lines by following these lifestyle tips:

  • A healthy diet high in antioxidants – This includes drinking plenty of water and eating fresh fruit, vegetables and minerals.
  • Sleep – Getting enough rest is essential to allow your skin time to recharge.
  • Protection from the sunUse sunscreen every day on your face and avoid excessive sun exposure.
  • Avoid frowning and squinting – Squinting in the sun and excessive frowning can cause these lines to deepen. 
  • Skincare routine A good skincare routine is essential to maintain healthy skin. You should moisturise at least twice a day, and exfoliate your face 2-3 times per week for the best results. Anti-ageing face serums that contain collagen will also help.

Frown Iines

However, no matter how much you try to prevent them, lines and wrinkles are an inevitability of ageing and some of us are simply predisposed to ageing earlier than others. And once your lines have developed, any preventative measures won’t reduce or get rid of frown lines entirely.

The good news is that some fantastic treatments can lessen and reduce the appearance of frown lines, helping you to look younger and regain your confidence.

How To Get Rid Of Frown Lines

There are many treatments that help get rid of frown lines and the best news is that they’re all non-surgical and minimally invasive. 

Anti-Ageing Injections

Anti-ageing injections, such as Botox have been a very popular method of getting rid of frown lines in recent years. This is because Botox freezes targeted muscles by blocking nerve signals to the brain in treated areas. This actually prevents skin from folding or creasing and reduces lines. 

Although very effective, many clients describe having less movement after a Botox treatment. It can cause the face to appear frozen, giving a less emotive expression. This is why clients often seek out alternative treatments, like dermal fillers. 

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment, however, they still allow movement of your facial muscles. Fillers are a gel-like substance made from naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid, something that naturally occurs in your body to produce the collagen and elastin needed to keep your skin smooth and hydrated. 

Your natural levels of hyaluronic acid decrease with ageing which has the effect of increasing lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers will help to boost your body’s collagen production leaving you with smooth, hydrated skin.

What To Expect From Your Dermal Filler Treatment

The dermal filler is injected into your skin to plump up, lift and smooth. It doesn’t affect your facial expression or movement and harnesses your body’s natural responses to get rid of frown lines.

Hyaluronic fillers are our filler of choice here at Elite Aesthetics. They hydrate the skin, leaving it smooth, supple and radiant and unlike other fillers can be easily removed if you find that you prefer your previous look.

Our dermal fillers naturally dissolve into your body without side effects or risk of reaction, making them a safe and reliable treatment to get rid of frown lines. 

What Are The Benefits Of Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a fantastic non-invasive treatment that can get rid of frown lines whilst providing natural-looking results. They are malleable and effective, as well as being easily reversible if you decide that you do not like the effects.

The results are noticeable after one treatment and last up to 18 months. You can opt for top-up treatments to keep your brow free from lines and wrinkles for many, many months.

There’s no recovery time after your dermal filler treatment to get rid of frown lines. The procedure is carried out in under 10 minutes, and because it’s non-invasive there is no preparation required or downtime afterwards. You might experience slight swelling at the injection site, but this will reduce after a couple of days.

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
