The vertical lines between the eyebrows form as a result of frequent contraction of the muscles from squinting, frowning, or intense concentration. The contraction of these muscles causes the skin to furrow and fold, and as the skin ages, losing its collagen and elasticity; persistent lines appear in these areas. This also happens on the forehead and in the crow’s feet area. These lines can lend a tired or even scowling appearance to the face.
The great thing about botox is that it does wear off in 6 months and the muscle animation is back to normal. This is a nice way to introduce yourself to the cosmetic surgery industry.
