Why do you have frown lines, and what should you do about them?

Frown lines, also known as wrinkles, glabellar lines, and worry lines, are deep vertical lines on the forehead. They occur due to skin thinning, sun damage, and repetitive muscle movement of the face. Have you ever looked in the mirror only to frown over fine lines on your forehead, knowing that you are not alone? By getting Pasadena Botox cosmetic injections, you will be one step to minimizing these worrying aging signs.

Causes of forehead wrinkles


It is the primary cause of frown lines. As you start to age, the skin starts to lose elasticity due to repetitive muscle movements of facial expression.

Sun exposure

Overexposure to sunlight causes the sun’s UV rays to break down elastin and collagen of the skin leading to wrinkles.


If you are under stress, it causes you to develop frown lines due to repetitive facial expressions.


Smoking constricts blood vessels which further causes the skin to lose elasticity due to insufficient oxygen, leading to frown lines.


DNA influences when you get wrinkles and where they appear. It also influences your skin thinness, thickness, fragility, and resilience; hence has a more significant influence on frown lines forming or not.


The following are prevention strategies to avoid frown lines;

  • Drinking a lot of water to keep hydrated
  • Eating a diet rich in fiber and antioxidants
  • Avoiding smoking
  • Wearing sunglasses on sunny days
  • Use facial sunscreens daily
  • Having enough sleep and sleeping on your back
