Botox® Furrow Lines Treatment

Do you have a set of 11s between your eyebrows? These are the furrowed lines between your eyebrows that form the number eleven. These lines can cause you to seem concerned, upset or angry, even though you may not feel that way. Botox® treatment can eliminate or minimize these unsightly lines.

The glabella is the smooth area of skin between your eyebrows. The muscles functioning in this area are basically the corrugator supercilii and the procerus. They work together, along with a few other facial muscles, to produce the frown lines you see. Botox treatment eases the action of these muscles, which allows the glabella area to remain smooth and unfurrowed.

Worry lines can be the result of frequently squinting your eyes or furrowing your eyebrows. Often, people who suffer with migraine headaches or tension headaches will also develop glabellar lines.

Botox Injections

Botox is a neuromodulator that inhibits muscle movement in the areas in which it is injected. When it is used in this area, it reduces the muscle activity that leads to a furrowed brow by blocking nerve signals to the brain. While this may not completely eliminate the lines in every case, it does soften them. Deeper lines may benefit from the added use of dermal fillers to create a smooth look.

Botox was approved for the treatment of moderate to severe glabellar lines by the FDA in 2002. It has a longstanding rate of success for treatment in this area with excellent results. After studying your anatomy, your doctor will determine the number of injections you will need for the procedure to have maximum results.

You will be able to resume your normal activities after treatment, but you should wait a day for strenuous activities. Cold compresses may be used to help with swelling in the injection site area. The procedure is not permanent, but the effects generally last for three to four months.

Contact Creative Facial Aesthetics today to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Khosh or Michele Rivard, PA. Both have extensive experience in providing patients with the aesthetic look they desire.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
