What are browlines?

Brow lines, frown lines, the ‘elevens’ – whatever you might call them, the two stubborn wrinkles that appear between the eyebrows are not what you’d call a sight for sore eyes.

While a couple of cheek dimples and a hint of crow lines are almost always indicative of time well spent laughing and smiling, brow lines appear as a result of ageing and continual frowning and squinting.

The muscles in our face are not as thick and sturdy as the muscles on the rest of our body and tend to lose their elasticity and tone much faster there. Every movement of the eyes, eyebrows, jaw and cheeks leaves our facial muscles creasing at the same spot over and over again.

The constant, repetitive creasing is what causes lines and wrinkles on the face, as the creased area stops being elastic and loses much of its volume.

Browlines tend to be the most visible fine lines that appear on the face, and are particularly hard to mask with makeup and treat with over the counter products.


Frown lines have a nasty tendency of appearing even in women as young as 30, which is why they’re one of the most commonly treated areas of the face.

Cosmetic procedures are now becoming much more widespread and accepted, not to mention more available and affordable.

And while we are advocates for always going the extra mile to preserve a youthful and glowing look, be it with dermal fillers or cosmetic surgery, it should still be a last resort, and never the first choice.

Frown lines are one of the most common and, unfortunately, the most visible wrinkles that form on the face. Constant squinting, peeking, frowning and grimacing put a strain on the area between your eyebrows, which ultimately results in excessive creasing of the muscles and the loss of volume.

The lines, sometimes also referred to as ‘the elevens’, are the dents that form atop the crease in the muscle tissue. The loss of elasticity, mainly collagen, as well as the overall volume of the muscle, can be more or less prominent depending on its cause.

Brow lines can affect both men and women as young as 30, and can often seem like quite unsightly lines on an otherwise plump, youthful face.

Many people immediately jump to dermal fillers or Botox injections to treat the area between the eyebrows. While its effects are immediate and the treatment itself is incredibly useful, it should never be the first resort.
