Smile! Treatment Options for Frown Lines
Are you tired of being told to cheer up even though you’re perfectly happy due to the presence of deep furrows or lines on your brow? These conspicuous wrinkles, known as frown lines, can make a person look not only angrier but also much older than she or he actually is. Thankfully, Dr. Tracy E. McCall of Lake Country Plastic and Hand Surgery offers numerous potentially ideal solutions to frown lines, including both non-surgical treatment options and facial surgery procedures that can be tailored to the unique needs and goals of each individual patient.
Dr. McCall would be pleased to discuss the available treatment options for frown lines with you during a consultation at her Milwaukee, WI plastic surgery practice. During this consultation, you and she can discuss your objectives for treatment, your lifestyle and medical history, and the expectations you have of your outcome. She will explain your treatment options to you in detail, including the benefits, risks, and costs associated with each, and how likely they would be to produce the results you desire. Ultimately, the two of you will arrive at a treatment plan that is perfectly suited to you.
If you would like to erase those frown lines from your brow, Dr. McCall would welcome the opportunity to discuss the various ways she can help make that happen. Contact Lake Country Plastic and Hand Surgery today to schedule your initial consultation with our esteemed plastic surgeon.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
If you are only beginning to develop fine lines in the brow region, then laser skin resurfacing may provide an excellent, proactive way to prevent those lines from prematurely becoming more prominent. Dr. McCall uses LuxIR fractional treatments to deliver laser energy to the deeper layers of the skin, causing the collagen located there to coagulate. The body removes this coagulated collagen, replacing it with fresh, new collagen. This causes the skin in the treated area to tighten and wrinkles to diminish.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections target the muscles that cause moderate to severe wrinkles to form, temporarily preventing them from contracting. By selectively paralyzing these muscles, while leaving the surrounding tissues responsible for necessary facial movement undisturbed, BOTOX® Cosmetic dramatically improves the appearance of wrinkles such as frown lines for up to six months, at which point treatment can safely be repeated if desired.
For patients who are experiencing severe frown lines, facial surgery may be the best available solution. Certainly, it would be the most permanent solution. Brow lift specifically targets the forehead region. Through discreet incisions, Dr. McCall removes excess skin, sculpts the muscles of the brow into a more aesthetically pleasing shape, and then pulls the remaining skin taut before suturing the incisions closed. Brow lift produces the most dramatic, longest-term results for patients who suffer from frown lines.
