The horizontal lines across your forehead can appear with many different emotions and facial expressions. If you are worried, surprised, concentrating or angry, your forehead muscles may contract and create “worry” lines. Over time, these lines can be etched into the skin, creating an unhappy and older appearance. At pēkomd® cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation center, we offer Botox® worry line treatment at our Toledo, OH, clinic.
Botox® was approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in 2002. The first approved treatment was for the frown or glabella lines between the eyebrows, but worry lines were also benefited by Botox. As a neuromodulator, Botox is used to relax the muscles that create dynamic lines like 11s and worry lines on the forehead. The neurotoxin, botulinum toxin type A, is the active ingredient in Botox, which blocks nerve signals to the muscles when injected. It can relax the muscles in the forehead that cause furrows, lines and wrinkles, producing a smoother, more youthful brow area.

Botox requires a few days for the effects to be noticeable. You will notice that your brow lines begin to soften, then eventually they disappear. The effects of Botox will wear off after a few months, and most people need repeated treatments every 3-4 months to maintain the desired results.
If you have unwanted forehead lines that are making you look older, sad or angry, Botox treatment may be the solution. To learn more about Botox worry line treatment, contact us at pēkomd®. Call our cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation center in Toledo, OH, to schedule a Botox consultation.
