What are frown lines?
Frown lines are created between the eyebrows over time due to repeated movement of the facial skin. Frown lines are the result of gathering or knitting of the tissue between the eyebrows into a fold. Frown lines are also known as glabellar lines. Years of squinting and frowning tend to leave deep wrinkles in the skin between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose.
Frown lines are not just age related but are dynamic as well. They are created by facial movements of a person such as frowning or squinting. The muscles above and between the eyebrows contract and tighten, and can cause wrinkles. So, they may develop even in younger adults.
