What Is the “Angry 11” and How Do You Treat It?

If you have two lines, or furrows, between your eyebrows, you already know what the “angry 11” is. These two lines are also sometimes referred to as “angry resting face” because the lines make people look like they are angry or annoyed—even when their face is at rest. The lines are usually a result of squinting, frowning, or thinking, and they tend to get worse as people get older.

Patients at our Burnaby, BC dental clinic have found that BOTOX Cosmetic works wonders on these lines. Let’s take a look at how BOTOX works.

What Is BOTOX Cosmetic?

BOTOX, or Botulinum Toxin, is an injection that paralyzes the muscles at the injection site. BOTOX injections are safe and effective in treating lines and wrinkles that form on the forehead and around the mouth. When done correctly, the injections give patients a well-rested look while they maintain their natural face mobility.

Look Younger after Your Lunch Hour

Unlike cosmetic surgery, BOTOX Cosmetic provides a hassle-free way to smooth out wrinkles on your face. A treatment session can be over in as few as 10 minutes, so you can even fit it into your lunch hour. Also unlike cosmetic surgery, there is zero downtime after treatment so you can go right back to the office—and no one will know you had the treatment done.

If you have a fear of needles, you should know that there is minimal discomfort with BOTOX treatments because of the size of the needles.

Most patients report minimal side effects, although some might experience a bit of redness or bruising at the injection site. This will resolve naturally in a few days.
