Treatment to erase the lion wrinkle by Botox injection

The treatment of frown lines is a very common reason for consultation in cosmetic surgery of the forehead. Many patients consider that the frown line gives a severe and worried look that does not reflect your real mood. In addition, the frown line contributes to an impression of aging of the face.

The lion’s wrinkle is caused by contractions of the Procérus and Corrugator muscles. The contractions of these muscles lead to the appearance of wrinkles that are more or less deep depending on the amount of muscle tone that increases throughout life.

This information sheet was written by Dr ABBOU who is a plastic surgeon in Paris.

What is the treatment for frown lines?

The treatment of the lion wrinkle is possible thanks to :

  • Botox injections. Botox reduces the contraction of facial muscles and thus reduces the depth of wrinkles at rest and when moving. Botox is the reference treatment
  • Injections of hyaluronic acid, which are most often used as a second step to correct residual wrinkles after botox injections. Hyaluronic acid injections are used to fill in deeply marked wrinkles in the skin

What are the objectives?

The objectives of the lion wrinkle treatment are:

  • Reduce the contraction of the forehead muscles
  • Filling in deep wrinkles on the forehead
  • Rejuvenate the face

What is the procedure?

Before treatment

During your medical consultation, we perform a complete analysis of your face and propose a treatment plan adapted to your request in order to obtain a natural and harmonious result.

Procedure for the treatment of frown lines

The treatment takes place in the doctor’s office and consists of botox and/or hyaluronic acid injections targeted at the forehead to treat muscle contraction and deep wrinkles.

The suites

The aftermath is very simple and you can resume your activities immediately. The results last on average between 6 months and one year depending on the technique used.

The result consists of a reduction in wrinkles while maintaining small movements: it is obtained three to fifteen days after the injections.

The results are visible after a few days, but for about 15 days, the effects on the face can be variable (even asymmetrical at times) before finally stabilizing.

It should be noted that, since the action of the toxin is temporary, if the injections are stopped even after several years of treatment, the treated muscles return to their normal function before the injections.
