What are frown lines?
Frown lines, also known as the 11s, are the pronounced lines between the eyebrows. However, often times these unwanted lines also appear above the brow and around the eyes. These lines have the added effect of creating an angry or perpetually-tired look. We all want to appear relaxed and approachable, but unwanted furrows between the brows can completely alter the facial expression we intend to give. Both men and women find these wrinkles to be an annoying concern both socially and at work.
What causes frown lines?
These pesky lines become an issue when repetitive facial muscle movement causes a more permanent crease to remain even when we are not angry. Additionally, as we age, the skin produces less vital proteins, such as elastin and collagen. These proteins are essential for skin elasticity, as they provide the support network that allows the skin to snap back into place.
Depending on the severity of the lines, Lifted Beauty + Wellness offers a variety of skin smoothing options to address this extremely common issue. Often times a combination of treatments can yield the most desirable outcome, refreshing the face for an overall more rested and youthful appearance.

The use of purified toxins like Botox for smoothing wrinkles is widely studied and yields amazing results.* This injectable treatment works by blocking the nerve impulse to the muscle, causing a form of paralysis. A very small dose of Botox can be injected directly into a specific muscle so only that muscle is paralyzed. This technique ensures patients have natural-looking results.* We also provide dermal fillers, which help create support under the skin, which will smooth out wrinkles.
