Treatment options: Glabellar lines can be temporarily reduced with injectable wrinkle reducers like Botox and Dysport. When injected into the muscles that cause glabellar lines to form, Botox temporarily paralyzes the area between the eyebrows. Botox inhibits skin in the glabellar region to wrinkle. 0.1 cc of Botox is delivered into each of the two muscles that cause for glabellar lines.
Men tend to require two more injections, since the muscles between their eyebrows tend to be stronger than women's. Whereas Botox is normally used off-label to treat wrinkles, the injectable is actually approved by the FDA for specifically treating the glabellar region.
Dysport works similarly to Botox, however for glabellar lines, it seems to be less effective. Eight weeks after treatment, both Dysport and Botox show the same effects, however, from week 12 to 16, the effects of Botox are more marked. Both injectables cost around $400 per treatment.
Surgical treatments: Lucky for you, glabellar lines are best treated with minimally invasive injections like Botox - not surgery. Why so upset? Right, it's just your glabellar lines!
