Smooth forehead and frown lines

We use our forehead and eyebrows when making many facial expressions to convey our emotions. From raising eyebrows in surprise to frowning in anger, these movements lead to lines and wrinkles between the eyes and across the forehead. Over time, these wrinkles, which are caused by repeated dynamic movement, can become visible all the time, even at rest, when we aren’t moving our faces to make expressions. Many treatments exist to reduce the creation of the wrinkles, as well as improve the appearance of the lines on the skin.
