Forehead wrinkles can be difficult for people who are very expressive and don’t have bangs to cover them if if they are self-conscious about them. So what is the best treatment for forehead wrinkles?

What causes forehead wrinkles?

The muscle in your forehead is called the frontalis. The main function of this muscle is to raise the eyebrows. Skin laxity, excess motion, and gravity are some other major causes of forehead wrinkles. Glabella wrinkles, also known as “elevens”, are those lines between your eyebrows. These lines do not only age a person they can also make one look stern or angry even when they are not.

Best Treatment for Forehead Wrinkles

We have found that neurotoxin treatments, such as Botox, have been most effective for forehead wrinkles. Other neuromodulator treatments that we offer that are similar to Botox include Jeauveu, aka “#NEWTOX”, Dysport, and Xeomin. Some older patients may need more than Botox and could benefit from a forehead or brow lift. This is a surgical procedure that address brow laxity as well as hooded upper eyelids.

How do these treatments work?

Neurotoxins work by temporarily weakening muscle activity and retraction. By not contracting the forehead muscle so strongly, wrinkles will relax and soften over time. Your wrinkles will not only gradually soften but can disappear all together when done consistently. Botox lasts approximately 4 months, so we recommend scheduling regular Botox appointments for continued results.

Who is a good candidate?

A good candidate for Botox would be someone who has visible lines in their forehead when their face is at rest. Botox treatments will soften those lines and with consistent treatments they will start to go away completely. Some patients will get small amounts of Botox earlier than this to prevent wrinkle lines from forming and/or provide a modest browlift. Prevention is popular right now with millennials but it’s important to not overdo it so you still look natural.
