Charakter- und Denkerfalten


Explanation:
I think that "Charakterfalten" does express frown lines the best and also in the most positive way.

"Denkerfalten" a positve way to explain the lines coming from thinking.

Who does not like to be called a thinking person and a person of great character?

Sorgenfalten


Explanation:
wie wär's damit? Frowning hat doch immer etwas mit Missbilligung und Sorgen zu tun, und Sorgenfalten sind doch ein häufig beobachtetes Phänomen (nicht bei mir, habe genug Arbeit).

Viel Glück!
