Facial Wrinkles

What causes glabellar lines?

Glabellar lines, also known as frown lines or “elevens,” are vertical creases that appear between the eyebrows on the forehead. They are typically formed as a result of repetitive facial expressions, such as frowning or squinting, which cause the muscles between the eyebrows to contract. Over time, these repetitive movements can lead to the formation of permanent lines and wrinkles in this area. Glabellar lines are a common concern for many individuals seeking cosmetic treatments to achieve a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Types of glabellar lines


Vertical glabellar lines run vertically between the eyebrows and are often the first to appear. They can give the face a tired or angry expression and are typically caused by repeated facial expressions such as frowning or squinting.


Unlike vertical lines, transverse glabellar lines run horizontally across the forehead. They are also known as forehead wrinkles and can deepen with age and sun exposure.


Static glabellar lines are visible even when the facial muscles are at rest. They are a result of collagen and elastin breakdown in the skin, leading to permanent creases.


Severe glabellar lines are deeply etched and more pronounced. They often indicate significant skin aging or repeated facial expressions over time.

Treatments for Glabellar Lines

Botox for glabellar lines

Botulinum toxin injections are commonly used to treat glabellar lines by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles. This results in a smoother appearance of the skin and can help prevent the formation of new lines.

Fillers for glabellar lines

Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid or other biocompatible materials can be used to fill in and plump up deep glabellar lines. They provide immediate volume and can last several months to a year, depending on the product used.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels involve applying a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate the top layers and stimulate collagen production. This can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, including glabellar lines.


SkinPen Microneedling treatments use tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating collagen production and improving skin texture. This can help reduce the appearance of glabellar lines over time.

Glabellar lines can vary in appearance and severity, but there are numerous treatment options available to address them effectively. Whether seeking preventive measures or treatments for existing lines, consulting with a qualified skincare professional can help individuals choose the most suitable approach based on their specific concerns and goals.
