One of the most common and frustrating areas we see lines and wrinkles as we age is our forehead. Both the horizontal lines that form when we lift our eyebrows in surprise and the vertical lines that appear between our eye brows when we squint or frown can leave permanent creases on our foreheads as we grow older. These wrinkles can start as fine lines and eventually become deeper impressions that cause us to look older. They can even make us appear worried or unhappy with perpetual “frown lines.” Don’t let these lines diminish your beauty; there are simple, outpatient treatments that we offer at Skin NV that can smooth out those forehead lines and wrinkles.
Time Is Responsible, Not Emotions
While the lines that appear on your forehead are formed when we are worried, stressed or even surprised, it is not the emotions that cause these lines to remain. When a child scrunches up their forehead in concentration, as soon as they relax, their forehead becomes smooth and the lines disappear. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, and these lines can begin to stay in place. Damage from the sun, smoking and other toxic exposures can hasten the ageing process, making each line more apparent.
Treatments to Smooth Out Forehead Lines
There are several ways to treat forehead lines and wrinkles without expensive and invasive surgery. Our med-spa offers a variety of options to reduce these forehead lines, from fine wrinkles to deeper frown lines between the eyebrows. Depending on the type and depth of the line, our specialists can discuss the advantages of a few different techniques and procedures.
Reduce muscle contraction. One of the major causes of lines and wrinkles is the subtle muscle contractions under the skin. Injections can be made into the skin to paralyze these muscle contractions and restore your forehead to the smoother appearance of when you were younger. Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are all examples of injections that are used to reduce these muscle contractions, with each having distinct benefits.
Dermal fillers. Some deeper lines and wrinkles that are on the forehead, even when the muscles are relaxed, may require the use of a dermal filler to reduce their appearance. We offer several types of dermal filler, depending on the types and depth of the lines we are treating. Some clients opt to receive both Botox and a filler treatment, giving them what we refer to as a liquid facelift.
There is no reason to let forehead lines detract from your natural beauty when there are treatments readily available to reduce these wrinkles in an outpatient session at our clinic.
