Frown lines are one of the first signs of aging many people notice. These parallel wrinkles between the eyebrows, nicknamed “11s,” can make you look angry or concerned, even when your face is at rest. Fortunately, there are several effective ways to minimize frown lines. Read on to learn more about the causes and solutions for glabellar lines.

What Causes “11s” Frown Lines?

Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive expressions like laughing, squinting, or frowning. Glabellar lines fall into this category since they’re caused by our eyebrows repeatedly drawing together. Even if you actively try not to frown, many of us make micro-expressions or hold tension in our faces without realizing it. Over time, the wrinkles remain even when we’re not frowning. 

How Can I Get Rid of Frown Lines?

There are several effective ways to minimize glabellar lines. The first line of defense is wearing an SPF 30+ sunscreen daily and a sun protective hat when you spend a lot of time outside. UV rays can break down the collagen and elastin in your skin, leading to more lines and wrinkles. You may also be able to minimize existing wrinkles with topical retinol products. 

One of the most popular frown line treatments is neuromodulators, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and DAXXIFY®. These injectables contain a purified form of botulinum A that temporarily relaxes muscles to smooth dynamic wrinkles.
