It is normal to frown, but frowning can create the misconception that we are angry or upset, especially if we do this often. This is usually involuntary; we don't mean to frown but just like blinking it is something we do without even realizing it. Over time frowning causes vertical lines between or eyebrows, often referred to as frown lines, or worry lines.

These lines become permanent and even if we are in a great mood and are well rested it can send off a negative reaction to those around us. One of the first uses of Botox® or Dysport® was to treat these lines. This treatment was originally for people with eye problems and one day a patient not only noticed improvement with their eye issue but also realized that they looked much better and people stopped asking them "if they were upset or worried about something". This is one of the reasons how the cosmetic effects of Botox® was discovered.

How is this area treated? Usually Botox is only needed to be placed in a few sites in this area of the face, within days you will notice your frown will be much softer, and over time the lines will start to diminish. People often comment that their friends think they look like they are "in a better mood" or say, "you look so relaxed". This is because after treatment the involuntary frowning is significantly reduced.
