Frown lines / forehead lines
As lines deepen around your forehead and eyes you may want to reduce them with anti-wrinkle injections. These injections are used to treat upper face wrinkles such as forehead lines, frown lines & crows feet.
At Story, we use wrinkle reduction injections to relax the wrinkles in the upper face that become deeper when you talk, frown or smile.
Upper face lines are caused by two things:
At Story, we always treat the underlying cause of ageing changes instead of just masking them. Treating both causes will give you long-lasting and natural-looking results.
Our approach to wrinkle reduction treatment is bespoke – we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Our upper face treatment could include a preventative treatment, a tailored dose for one, two or three areas of treatment, under eye wrinkle reduction, bunny line (nose wrinkles) reduction or brow lifting techniques. We will work out which is the best version of this treatment for you during your consultation. Our highly trained doctors are dedicated to achieving a natural look that won’t leave you looking unnatural.
We also have the 2 step wrinkle reduction treatment for deeper or more persistent lines.
Step 1 – Our bespoke wrinkle reduction treatment.
Step 2 – A hyaluronic acid Skin Booster treatment performed 2-4 weeks later.
In our step 2 Skin Booster treatment we apply microdroplets of hyaluronic acid gel to the residual fine lines in the forehead and eye area. The Skin Booster product selected will depend on the location of your lines and your skin type. Products that we use include Juvederm® Volite and Redensity 1 Beauty Booster.
We can advise you on the most suitable and effective treatment at your consultation.

No you won’t look frozen and yes you will be able to make expressions! The degree of muscle movement required to maintain a natural looking appearance after treatment will depend on your age, ethnicity and individual characteristics; we can tailor the treatment to you.
This treatment is used for anti-wrinkle treatment in the forehead, frown and eye area. However it can be used for many other cosmetic treatments including bunny lines (lines around the nose bridge), gummy smile reduction, dimply chin reduction and jawline slimming.
No it doesn’t fill them in, it treats the cause of the lines by reducing the muscle pull on the skin in that area. Directly plumping the lines can be performed afterwards in some facial areas as part of our 2 step wrinkle reduction treatment.
This treatment will help to a degree but it will not completely remove deep creases that have been there many years and are present when your face is relaxed. We have many treatment options for such creases; laser resurfacing and microneedling are two examples. Please visit us for a consultation and we can determine the best option.
Dynamic wrinkles are lines that appear, or significantly deepen, when your face moves. These are the lines that get the best results from wrinkle reduction treatment.
No, this is a myth! Your wrinkles may come back if you stop but they will not be worse. In fact they are very likely to be better than before you started treatment.
Unfortunately there isn’t anything that you can do to make it last longer. There is huge individual variation here with some lucky individuals finding that their results last over 6 months and others finding that it last half that at 3 months.
