Wrinkles between eyebrows can actually make you look much older than your age, but they are not essentially formed due to aging. Appearance of wrinkles between the eyebrows, more commonly known as the “11” wrinkles, is a problem that can make appearance even in your mid20s.
Vertical wrinkles between the eyes at an early age are mainly caused due to over use and contraction of the corrugator supercilii muscles during the regular course of the day for expressing and talking. Depending on their intensity, these wrinkles can be cured through cosmetic procedures or natural ways.

To maintain the best results the treatment needs to be repeated after 3-6 months.

Injecting hylaform gel into the affected area can also be effective to treat the problem clinically. The effects of these treatments are immediate and stay put for longer. They need to be repeated after 6-12 months. Dermal fillers can be ideal even for treating the deep set “11” wrinkles between the eyebrows.
