Frown Lines

Treat visible frown lines and reverse the signs of ageing. Our subtle procedure promises natural results and smoother, more youthful looking skin.



 

 

How do we treat Frown Lines?

This preventative treatment uses anti-wrinkle injections to tackle those ‘angry’, furrowed frown lines that appear above the eyes. 

We treat wrinkling by using strategic placed anti-wrinkle injections to relax the muscles between the eyebrows. Over time, this muscle pulls the skin around the brow downward, causing dynamic lines and wrinkles to form. 

By relaxing these muscles, the development of the wrinkles will decline, and the skin will revitalise for a smooth, refreshed look. 

With our Frown Lines treatment, expect a boost in self-esteem when you achieve much smoother skin and regain your youthful glow. A previously stressed appearance can look more naturally relaxed, having a holistic benefit on your confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anti-wrinkle injections are an increasingly popular treatment for tackling the signs of ageing non-surgically. They are able to relax facial muscles and proactively prevent wrinkles from forming.

Anti-wrinkle injections work by using a naturally purified protein to relax muscles in the face and block certain nerve signals to the muscles. By blocking the nerve signals, the hyperactive muscles that normally contract or elevate will freeze, allowing for smoother skin with reduced wrinkles.

Using anti-wrinkle injections for this treatment allows us to minimise any activity above the eyebrows that encourages these dynamic frown lines to crop up. By relaxing the muscles, they gain a chance to recuperate the face’s elasticity, allowing it to bounce back to its youthful standard as if the wrinkles never existed. This leads to smoother skin and a reduction in depth and severity of the wrinkles, making them less noticeable and helping to prevent future wrinkles from developing. 



Due to the treatment being non-surgical in nature, there is little to no pain involved in anti-wrinkle injections. Of course, everyone has a different pain threshold, but when performed by our expert practitioners the procedure is described as a slight pinch to the skin. The needles used for this treatment are extremely thin to allow for minimal discomfort and improved accuracy for our practitioners.

Different areas of the face will have more nerve endings, meaning these areas can be more sensitive than others. We recommend the use of a topical anaesthetic to soothe the area and remove any discomfort. Our clinically trained practitioners are trained regularly on the latest techniques to ensure that treatments are performed with your comfort and safety as a priority.



Due to the nature of injectable treatments, there is a possibility of some minor side effects. Side effects from Botox injections commonly keep to the site of the injection and often only take a few days to settle. The most common side effects include: 

  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Itching
  • Bruising
  • Sensitivity
  • Muscle weakness

Any potential side effects will be discussed further at the pre-treatment consultation with a member of the VIVA team.  Your practitioner will discuss relevant medical history to provide an informed recommendation for your course of treatment. 

Our medical team is led by Dr Rupert, who is considered one of the most experienced injectors in the UK. Having treated over one million patients in over ten years of opening our doors at VIVA, you can have peace of mind that your safety is our priority.



Initial results will be visible as soon as you leave the clinic, however, it will take around two weeks for the anti-wrinkle injections to finalise and provide the full result. The two-week wait also allows for any light bruising or swelling from the treatment to reduce, revealing your final look. 



The Botulinum toxin (BOTOX) anti-wrinkle injectables that we use at our clinics usually last around 3 to 4 months, with longevity varying naturally from patient to patient. We recommend a follow-up appointment around 4 to 6 months after your initial treatment to assess results and provide maintenance. Follow-up appointments will help us to keep your skin looking healthy and rejuvenated for as long as possible.

The exact length might change based on the volume of anti-wrinkle injectables used, aftercare, and the precise areas being treated. Our aestheticians will be happy to discuss specifics at your initial consultation.



Injectables can usually last independently for months, but you can increase the longevity of your anti-wrinkle results and prevent wrinkles in a few ways. To ensure that you get the most from your anti-wrinkle treatment, we recommend a combination of the following.

  • Maintaining a healthy skincare routine, minimising exposure to UV radiation.
  • Eating a balanced diet and staying hydrated.
  • Avoiding stress, as this will accelerate the signs of ageing.
  • Follow the recommended aftercare provided by our practitioners.
  • Regular follow-up treatments.

We only use the most effective and safest FDA-approved products at VIVA Skin Clinics. Before any treatment we require a full medical consultation to understand your suitability. We would never recommend a treatment for you if we deemed it to be unsafe or dangerous for your unique circumstance.

At VIVA, we only hire doctors and nurses with a strong background in the NHS, with a minimum of three years in aesthetics. Our MD, Dr Rupert Critchley, is involved in the training of other medical practitioners for Allergan, the company behind Juvéderm and Botox. 

You can be sure that you will be in the best hands; safety is our primary concern, and we work to ensure that you are safe and comfortable, before, during and after your treatment.



This treatment is suitable for anyone interested in revivifying their facial features by reducing frown lines that have built up. It is especially useful in maintaining the natural look of the face without looking ‘frozen’, which is a common concern with this procedure. 

This treatment is personalised to each patient and can be combined with the anti-wrinkle injections in the forehead area. By personalising the treatment and potentially combining the two, we can target precise concerns. This means we can provide smoother skin that will proactively fend off ageing signs like wrinkles whilst retaining a wholly natural look.



With many different brands cluttering the market, and our Clients as our top priority, we ensure to use only the safest, more premium products. This is why we at VIVA Skin Clinics are proud to use the FDA-approved Botulinum toxin by Allergan, one of the safest and most renowned brands on the market.
