Glabellar Lines

Also called frown lines.

Glabella is the smooth area between the eyebrows just above the nouse. So, Glabellalines  are the short vertical lines found between the eyebrows and extending up the central forehead for a centimetre or so.

The biggest contributor to glabellar lines is sun damaged skin. Once you have damaged skin and your face muscles interact with it, you get glabellar lines. The sun breaks down collagen and elastin and the skin becomes thinner. When this occurs, your skin won’t stay smooth and taut, as it did before the damage.

Another cause of grabellar lines is the natural aging process. As we age, the dermis, which is the inner layer of skin, thins and cells divide less. Both the elastin and skin fibers loosen, causing skin to lose its elasticity. Your skin will also retain less moisture as you get older. Smoking also causes your skin to age at a faster rate, including the development of wrinkles.
