Unfortunately, our forehead can become quite wrinkled as we get older, and this can really age our appearance. Most patients who have come to us have pointed out that forehead wrinkles make them look like they are tired or worried all the time.
Forehead lines or forehead wrinkles are horizontal creases that stretch across your forehead and are commonly a sign of ageing.
We often form lines on our forehead during our typical everyday facial expressions. However, over many years these forehead lines can become permanent. As with many skincare concerns, age plays a role in the development of forehead wrinkles. As we get older, our skin loses elastin, which helps our skin bounce back. The result of this is lines visible on our foreheads all the time.
Other factors that make the appearance of forehead lines worse include stress, smoking, and excessive sun exposure.
These horizontal lines across the forehead can make you look older, more ‘stressed’ and often affect your confidence in your appearance. The good news is there is something you can do about it. Very fine lines that are just starting to show can sometimes be off-set with topical applications. But if there are already permanent forehead wrinkles in place, a cosmetic procedure such as Botulinum Toxin injections is necessary to make a noticeable difference.
