Clinic Eleven Appearance and Skin Cancer Medicine Paraparaumu on Getting Angry
Have you noticed vertical lines appearing between someone’s eyebrows when they frown or concentrate? These frown lines or wrinkles are usually only noticeable during facial expressions. However, over time repeated movement of the ‘glabellar muscle complex’ may cause these lines to become ‘static’ and appear as ugly wrinkles (visible even when the face is at rest).
