What Are Glabellar (Mid-Eyebrow) Rhytids?
The vertical lines in the forehead and between the eyebrows are called the glabellar (mid-eyebrow) rhytids. These rhytids begin to emerge depending on facial mimics, skin thickness, genetic factors, and face shape.
How Do Glabellar (Mid-Eyebrow) Rhytids Form?
We actively use our mimics while experiencing mood changes when exposed to the sun or during a presentation. Using our parrots actively causes the formation of rhytids (lines) between our two eyebrows. And this rhytid may become more than one with each mimic we use. For example, imagine that you want your waist to slim down and exercise for it every day. You will see that you become thinner over time. The facial mimics that we do many times every day are perceived as a sport by our forehead area, and in time, the traces of the mimics we make remain and deepen. So, time is the biggest enemy for glabellar rhytids. Over time, the rhytids sit on your facial expression, deepen and make you look angry even when you’re calm.
How Are Glabellar (Mid-Eyebrow) Rhytids Treated?
Glabellar rhytids are formed by the use of facial mimics and become evident and deeper over time. You can delay the formation of rhytids with simple methods such as moisturising creams, sunscreen, sunglasses and exercises. If you have habits such as frowning or making mimics for no reason, you should be careful and reduce them as much as possible. If your rhytid formation has started, creams or classic exercises may not give definite results. The treatment of these rhytids with Botox, filling, babyface beauty or salmon DNA methods helps you get more accurate results. Let’s examine these methods.
If you are young and the rhytids between your eyebrows appear when you use your mimics, and if the rhytids relapse when you release the mimics, the Botox method will be an application that you should prefer. Before starting the procedure, the physician applies local anaesthesia. Then the application takes place with the determined dosage. Since the area where the procedure is applied is anesthetised, patients do not feel pain or discomfort before and after the procedure.
If your wrinkles are deepened, the preferred method should be filling. Filling carries more risk compared to other methods. There are blood vessels leading to the eye in the forehead area and if the filler is injected into one of the veins accidentally, it may cause blindness or damage to the fillers on the forehead. Therefore, paying attention to the fact that the physician you choose is experienced and right for you will help minimise the risk. Since the filling is injected with minimal numbers in general, the procedure is painless.
- BABYFACE BEAUTY
This method, which is preferred by patients anxious about needles, is painless. It is applied with a laser without anaesthesia. Microchannels are opened with the selected laser mode between the two eyebrows, and a collagen ampoule is applied. It takes an average of 10 minutes.
- H-100 VACCINE
In this method, which is also called the youth vaccine, the area between the eyebrows is anesthetised first. The vaccine is injected under the skin. Two sessions are applied in the young age group, three sessions in the middle age group and four sessions in the advanced age group. The vaccine removes rhytids; it also brightens the skin, gives vitality, and helps to gain a healthy look. Since the patients gain full recovery at an average of 1 hour, they continue their lives without any problems.
- SALMON DNA
This method is obtained from the DNA of salmon fish, which is the closest DNA to the human skin. It is applied once a week or every 15 days. Since it is a natural method, it is highly preferred, and it is painless.
