Forehead lines and wrinkles are the horizontal lines that you may see running across your forehead. They first start to appear around the age of 20-30 and are just a typical sign of ageing that is common in the majority of people.
Forehead Lines Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic
Forehead lines, also known as forehead wrinkles are the horizontal indentations that appear across our forehead. They are most noticeable when we pull certain facial expressions, such as lifting our eyebrows. When we smile, laugh or look concerned, the glabella muscles tug and pull the skin that covers them, making them appear as deep forehead lines.
Forehead lines are natural visible indentations across everyone’s face, but as we age, they become more deep-set and prominent looking. This is because our skin gradually becomes looser, and the collagen bonds that form the structure of our faces become less defined. As we repeat facial movements like smiling and frowning over time, the skin across our foreheads loses collagen and elastin stores that keep the skin firm and taut. As a result, forehead lines and wrinkles appear to look deeper set and more obvious.
Although a surgical brow lift can treat forehead wrinkles, it is perfectly possible to smooth the forehead in a non-invasive way without incurring downtime. This non-surgical forehead line lift results in a well-rested, relaxed and refreshed look without any severe side effects.
One of our most popular treatments to get rid of forehead lines is anti-wrinkle injections. Botulinum toxin is a naturally purified protein that works as a muscle relaxant. It’s often prescribed by doctors in the UK to treat medical conditions such as chronic migraines and is a popular and proven method for treating forehead wrinkles. See what other areas on the face can be treated with anti-ageing injectables!
Administered properly by a fully qualified medical practitioner, botulinum toxin injections will visibly diminish brow lines but enable movement in your facial expressions to remain and avoid an unwanted frozen, ‘caught-in-the-headlights’ look. It normally takes 5-7 days for botulinum toxin forehead wrinkle treatments to work.
At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we believe in helping you look great for your age in a completely natural and subtle way. We usually obtain good results after just a single injection.
There is a range of treatments that we can use to reduce forehead lines, from Botulinum toxin injections and our classic non-surgical brow lift to dermal fillers and radiofrequency treatments. The best way to get rid of forehead lines is to carry out a detailed consultation with our trained practitioners, who can advise on the best approach to suit your own skin needs. You may benefit from a combination of treatments, like the combination of forehead fillers and anti-wrinkle injections, to achieve optimum results.
Dermal fillers can smooth out forehead lines by filling in deep creases and lines with restorative hyaluronic acid. This natural sugar protein helps our skin to retain water while giving it moisture, hydration and support to strengthen the skin. We can apply forehead filler into lines and wrinkles strategically to bring volume back to deep creases. This helps to reduce the appearance of forehead lines without freezing any natural facial muscle movements.
Ultherapy is a leading ultrasound procedure that stimulates the natural production of collagen within our skin. It can be applied to the forehead area to stimulate the production of strengthening collagen stores across the forehead lines. This helps to tighten and smooth the skin while smoothing the appearance of deep-set wrinkles.
Thermage CPT is a radiofrequency collagen-boosting treatment that three-dimensionally contracts collagen deep within our skin. This reboots our body’s own ability to regenerate naturally collagen proteins on its own, making Thermage a great way to smooth forehead lines and wrinkles over the long term. Just one session can produce forehead smoothing effects that can last several years in some patients.
Micro-needling is a skin rejuvenating treatment that is non-surgical and minimally invasive. It can smoothen forehead lines by stimulating fresh collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, while also addressing skin issues like acne scars and sun spots.
