Forehead Lines

Forehead lines are the horizontal lines that run across the forehead. They are caused by the repeated lifting of the eyebrows, due either to facial expressions that crease and fold the skin or heavy eyelids that put extra strain on the facial muscles when raised. As we get older our skin looses its elasticity and ability to bounce back and forehead lines then start to appear.

Forehead lines can affect both men and women at any age and can also be hereditary. Exposure to UV rays and smoking may also be contributory factors, but this condition is primarily caused by how we use our facial muscles.

We will usually recommend anti-wrinkle injections to treat forehead lines. Very small amounts of Botox are injected into the facial muscles that are causing the lines to appear. The Botox relaxes the muscles by blocking the receptor, in turn smoothing out the lines to give a more youthful, refreshed and relaxed appearance.
