Doctors Edward Buckingham and Erin Smith offer Frown Line solutions for patients in Austin & Sunset Valley, TX. Frown lines are the product of overactive muscles and/or skin laxity. Treatment options depend on the cause and severity of the furrows and should be individually tailored to the patient’s condition. In some patients, Botox therapy is sufficient to soften the scowling appearance of the overactive brow muscle. Also, younger patients are increasingly seeking this minimally invasive therapy to rejuvenate their look or to prevent aging. Deeper wrinkles may require injectable soft tissue fillers, such as Restylane or Radiesse in order to achieve the best cosmetic outcome. Other patients who have significant brow droop may be better served by brow lift surgery. Dr. Buckingham has employed a combination of methods when suitable to correct the complex nature of frown lines.
To determine if a patient is a good candidate for this procedure, Dr. Buckingham recommends a private patient consultation.

Frown Lines Questions & Answers
Hyaluronic acid fillers are the only ones that we inject into the lips. HA fillers are also very good at marionette lines as well as other superficial wrinkles. While you can use other fillers for areas other than lips it is not necessarily better. We usually will utilize Juvederm, Restylane or Restylane Lyft for all the areas unless the patient desires a longer result in which case we might recommend Radiesse. We utilize Sculptra as well for more significant volume replacement cases or in patients who don’t mind a series of injections and are looking for the longest results. Sculptra is not good for the lips however.
