Frown lines, are the wrinkles that occur between your eyebrows. They can also be referred to as 11 lines (as they often look like the number 11) or glabellar lines (referring to the area of the face known as glabella). These lines become most visible when you scowl, but can remain long after your facial expression goes back to neutral.

Though frown lines are most pronounced when someone creates the look of scowling, they can be caused by various facial expressions. Like most wrinkles, frown lines occur from repetitive facial expressions that cause creases in the skin. When we are young, these creases are only temporary and the skin bounces back as we move through expressions. As we age, the decrease in elastin and collagen reduces the ability of our skin to bounce back, resulting in permanent, more prominent wrinkles such as frown lines.
