Furrowed Brows – Ways to Combat and Get Rid of Them

As you age, your skin tends to lose tone and texture. This occurs, in part, due to reduced levels of collagen and elastin in your skin. Without fewer of these stretchy and elastic proteins, your skin begins to thin and form folds more easily. For many people, one of the first places where these deep folds appear is along the brow line.

Skin folds or wrinkles along the brow line result in what’s known as a “furrowed brow.” And a furrowed brow can be more than a minor annoyance! It may change your facial expressions, making you look grouchy or tired when you truly are not.

Are you ready to say goodbye to your furrowed brow and look more like yourself again? Here are some non-invasive and minimally invasive options to explore.

Infini® Microneedling

Infini is a specialized, radiofrequency (RF) treatment system that targets the root cause of furrowed brows: collagen loss. In other words, this system delivery RF waves deep into your skin. These RF waves trigger your skin to produce more collagen, and the increased collagen levels help ease the appearance of wrinkles and folds – including your furrowed brows.

What to Expect

When you arrive for your Infini treatment, your practitioner will begin by applying a numbing agent to the area between and above your brows. Once your skin is suitably numb, they’ll place a specialized device over the treatment area. This device contains many tiny needles. The needles will penetrate your skin to a very precise depth, activating the layers of the skin responsible for collagen production.

As the tiny needles penetrate your skin, they’ll deliver RF waves. These RF waves vibrate or activate collagen-producing cells. Depending on how large an area you have treated, you can expect your Infini session to take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. If you have crow’s feet or wrinkles around your mouth, you can often have those areas treated in the same session.

After Treatment

After your Infini treatment, your skin will be red and rough-textured for a couple of days. Avoid wearing makeup and using harsh cosmetics as your skin heals.

The results of the Infini treatment should begin appearing about a week after treatment, and you’ll continue to see improvements for another month or so. You’ll should notice your facial expressions appear kinder and your forehead, overall, appears smoother.


While you should notice a marked improvement after one Infini treatment, most patients do choose to undergo 3 – 6 treatments in total. You’ll notice your brow line becomes even smoother and more youthful after each session.

Your practitioner will work with you to create a treatment schedule that works for your lifestyle and skin. Most people schedule treatments every 4 – 6 weeks. Then, you can have a touch-up treatment every year to keep your furrowed brows from returning.

Collagen Supplements and Collagen-Rich Foods

Another way to boost your collagen levels and ease the appearance of furrowed brows is to take collagen supplements. In fact, it’s often wise to take collagen supplements as you undergo Infini treatments. That way, your body has the collagen it needs to build more collagen along your brow line.

There are lots of collagen supplements on the market today, and they vary in quality. For best results, choose a supplement that comes with a detailed ingredient list and product label. Look for one that has been lab-tested for purity and potency, too. Your med spa practitioner may be able to suggest a good brand.

If you prefer to avoid supplements, you can instead work on incorporating more collagen-rich foods into your diet. Good options include:

  • Bone broth
  • Sardines
  • Skin-on chicken

Stress Relief

When you are stressed out, you likely make facial expressions that furrow your brow. If you do this repeatedly, your brow furrows are likely to worsen over time. As such, working to reduce your stress levels can help prevent your furrowed brows from worsening. It may also help keep your brow furrows from reappearing after a series of Infini treatments.

There are many ways to relieve stress, and you may need to experiment to see which ones work best for you. Meditation is one option. There are several apps you can use to guide you as you meditate. Aerobic exercise, such as jogging or swimming, is a good choice if you prefer to be more active. Or, you could try listening to calming and uplifting stories and audiobooks.

If your brow furrows are becoming bothersome, don’t dismay. From Inifini treatments to dietary changes, there are plenty of steps you can take to smooth things out. Contact Balance MedSpa in Orlando to learn more about our treatments for furrowed brows.
