Fillers for Glabellar Lines are slowly becoming a thing. With our fast-paced day-to-day activities, it’s no longer a surprise that wrinkles and Glabellar lines appear.
What are Glabellar Lines?
Glabellar Lines, mostly known as Frown Lines, these are the lines that show up in between your eyebrows. These lines are called the frown lines as they often appear whenever we’re frowning. It appears as one vertical line. However, there are also cases where the glabellar lines show up in two or more lines.
Some can even appear as angled, pointing towards the inner corners which trace the line along your eyebrows. This is where your lower forehead muscles form a downward pointing crease. If these frown lines surfaces, it means that your skin is no longer tight, which is one clear indication of aging.
However, if you’re young and you think that you’re exempted from these glabellar lines, then you’re wrong. These dreaded lines can still show up even if you’re still young,
What are the Reasons Why Glabellar Lines?
Reason #1: Stress
If you are still in your late 20s and early 30s and you notice that the glabellar lines are slowly surfacing, then you should take a step back and relax. Stress is the most significant contributor to these surfacing lines. Studies have been conducted, and these studies show that stress can badly affect your skin cells.
Reason #2: Pollution
The way we live has badly affected our environment, and these effects are then thrown back to us. Pollution and Free Radicals are just a few of these effects. If you’re not familiar with Free Radicals, these are electrons without pairs. Since atoms love to be in pair, they grab one from your skin. If the atom from your skin is snatched away, it can damage your DNA resulting in premature aging.
Reason #3: Dry Skin
If you’re already in your late adulthood, it means that you must be going through the hormonal change. Two telltale signs that you’re going through this hormonal change is that you’re gaining quite a lot of weight and you’re not as flexible as before.
If you’re going through these hormonal changes, then the sebum production in your body is decreasing. Sebum keeps your skin moisture in check. Less Sebum means dry skin, which can lead to glabellar lines.
How Do You Reduce Glabellar Lines?
Short term for the Botulinum Toxin, Botox is commonly used to relax and reduce the muscle tension within your skin. It is one of the most used cosmetic treatments to help remove unwanted wrinkles.
Botox works by closing off certain nerve signals, which can cause your muscles to relax and ease the tension. With your muscle tension gone, the appearance of your wrinkles and glabellar lines will be reduced.
Does Botox have a Side Effect?
It’s rare, but if they do, they get experience flu-like symptoms, which includes swallowing problems. Another possible side effects are headaches. These headaches commonly occur the day after you get the treatment.
Commonly known as Dermal Fillers, these are a group of medical products that are injectable. Fillers are designed to add more volume to your tissues on the injected parts. These fillers last longer than botox, which is why a lot of people choose to have fillers, rather than injections.
Fillers can be classified into three different types: Hyaluronic Acid Fillers, Permanent Fillers, Collagen-Stimulating Fillers
1. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
This is the most common type of filler as it is commonly used to heal wrinkles and glabellar lines. It can also treat Acne Scars, Crow’s Feet (which can be found at the corner of your eyes), lip border as well as facial scars.
2. Permanent Fillers
Commonly known as Silicone Filler, it’s popular among people since its popular. Just like Hyaluronic Acid, it works as a filler for any loose skin and makes it tighter. This tighter skin gives an impression of younger-looking skin. Permanent Fillers are usually used for making thin lips look plump, remove wrinkles, and enhance the shallow areas in your face.
3. Collagen-Stimulating Fillers
Commonly known as Sculptra, Collagen-Stimulating Fillers are popular for being biodegradable and non-toxic. It’s dubbed as one of the safest fillers as it has been in the medical field for more than 40 years. Collagen-Stimulating Fillers are commonly used to treat glabellar lines, laugh lines, and fill thin lips.
Do Fillers Have Side Effects?
It’s rare for a filler to give you side effects; however, if they do, it can result in bruising, lumpiness, or swelling. This only happens whenever the filler is mistakenly injected into your blood vessel. Allergic reactions and nerve damage are also quite rare since most of the fillers in Korea are hypoallergenic.
This is the reason why you should make sure that the person who’s going to inject your filler is certified and knows what they’re doing.
Worrying about your frown lines can worsen it so don’t sweat it about it. If you want to get rid of it, you can either try botox or fillers 一 whatever floats your boat. The important thing is you get satisfied with the choice you have made.
