Glabella lines are often termed the dreaded “11s”, "frown lines", or "furrowed brow". These are the short vertical lines between the eyebrows and are often stronger in men than women. These 'anger lines' or 'frustration signs' are often the first lines to appear on the forehead, even as early as your mid- 20s. Aesthetically, glabella lines make an upper face look heavy and tired.
What can make the 11's worse:
❌stress and muscle tension
❌unprotected sun exposure
❌smoking & other environmental pollutants
❌excessive fried foods, sugar, or lots of caffeine
❌photosensitivity causing you to squint
Possible therapeutic options to improve the glabellar area:
✔medical-grade skincare products
✔stress reduction techniques
✔healthy diet with sufficient hydration
