Forhead Lines

Forehead Lines

Forehead lines are the horizontal lines that appear on the forehead. They are also sometimes called ‘worry lines’.

Why do they appear?

Forehead wrinkles are formed mainly from raising your eyebrows or from frowning, which causes the skin on the forehead to fold in horizontal groups.

If this is done repeatedly, the skin tends to fold in the same areas every time, and then lines start to appear, even when the forehead muscles are relaxed. If a person raises his or her eyebrows or frowns very frequently, these fine lines normally eventually turn into wrinkles.

Ageing also contributes to the formation of Forehead Lines because as we get older, our skin looses its elasticity and plumpness, mostly due to degeneration of collagen and elastin.

Sunlight is also a major contributor to Forehead Lines because when the sunlight hits the skin, it breaks down collagen and elastin and therefore makes the the skin slowly loose its shape.

Smoking is also a key contributor to Forehead Lines, as the toxic chemicals in the cigarette is both damaging to the skin cells and also interferes with skin regeneration.

Also, a poor diet can exacerbate line and wrinkle formation. If the skin cells don’t have the right building blocks for repairing damaged skin and also for creating new skin, the quality of the overall skin is likely to be inferior.

What is normally the best treatment for Forehead Lines?

The preferred treatment for Forehead Lines is often Botox (or other Botolinum) injections.

This is because the main cause of the wrinkles is the repeated raising of the eyebrows or frowning. A Botox injection will limit (or stop) further raising of the eyebrows or frowning, which will stop further deepening of the Forehead Lines.

When the skin is no longer folding along the already formed lines, the lines will stop deepening. After some time of inactivity, these lines also become significantly less pronounced.

In certain cases where a person has particularly deep Forehead lines, the treatment can be made even more effective by combining the Botox injections with a dermal filler.

When the wrinkles are deep, a dermal filler can give volume and plumpness back to these crevasses and stretch them out, and in some cases make them disappear entirely.
