Top 3 Treatments for Removing Wrinkles on the Forehead

Last Modified: July 30, 2022

Do you look older than you really are?

If you’re developing wrinkles, it could be ageing you unnecessarily.

Wrinkles can bring us down and take away from our confidence and happiness. Luckily, we don’t need to live with wrinkles.

If you’re looking forward to getting rid of forehead wrinkles, read on to learn the three best ways for treating this common skincare concern.

1. Anti-Wrinkle Injections for Getting Rid of Forehead Wrinkles

One of the most effective ways to reduce forehead wrinkles is anti-wrinkle injections, like Botox. Botox is a non-surgical injectable that works to temporarily stop muscles from contracting.

Botox treatments create a smooth forehead, free from wrinkles and frown lines. Generally, the procedure can be done in under 30 minutes, with the results lasting up to 3-4 months.

There’s no downtime, so many people have the procedure done on their lunch hour, before returning to the office.

You’ll start to see the results of your treatment around 7-10 days after, so plan accordingly if you want to get rid of forehead wrinkles for a special occasion.

2. Laser Treatments

Lasers can do wonders to improve the appearance of your skin and reduce fine lines. Consider having a treatment, such as Fraxel, for rejuvenated skin.

Lasers can stimulate collagen growth, reducing forehead wrinkles. The treatment is permanent, but you may require several treatment sessions to obtain the desired results. The sensation feels like a mild prickling on your skin.

In addition to reducing forehead wrinkles, lasers can also help with sun-damaged skin and uneven pigmentation or sunspots.

However, unlike Botox, there is some downtime associated with laser treatments. Be prepared for 3-5 days of peeling, red skin as the desired effects begin.

3. Retinoids

For an at-home procedure, incorporate retinoids into your skincare regime. They can both prevent wrinkles from developing and can ease the appearance of existing fine lines on your forehead, which has been scientifically proven.

What are retinoids? They are a chemical compound made from Vitamin A and are a popular skincare product. When used regularly, they help increase cell turnover, leading to brighter, glowing skin.

It can be strong, so it's best to start slowly, using it a few times per week, or starting out with a lower-strength product. It's best used as part of your evening skincare regime, as it works better when left on overnight.

However, it can also make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, so always wear sunscreen when using retinoids. (Although, you should already be wearing sunscreen daily to help protect your skin!)

As with all skin treatments, ask your dermatologist or healthcare professional if you have any questions.
