What are forehead wrinkles (frown lines)?
Forehead wrinkles run transversely and are also colloquially known as thinker’s wrinkles or frown lines. One of the causes is the lifting of the forehead, which activates the frontalis muscle, the forehead muscle. After eye wrinkles, forehead wrinkles are the most common type of wrinkle. A distinction must be made between horizontal wrinkles and the vertical “wrinkle lines” between the eyes.
What are the causes of forehead wrinkles (frown lines)?
Anyone who wants a Botox treatment against a wrinkled forehead should also know the causes. These are due to ageing and the reduced production of collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin loses its elasticity, which is intensified by the fact that the facial muscles are used most frequently. Raising the eyebrows also causes forehead wrinkles, and squinting your eyes when looking at the sun has the same effect. Lastly, stress should also be mentioned. Tense muscle tone also leaves its mark on the skin and is reflected in wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin or hyaluronic acid for forehead wrinkles
To get rid of wrinkles on the forehead, it is recommended to relax the muscles of the forehead. If you opt for botulinum toxin against forehead wrinkles, you will achieve a lasting effect. If desired, hyaluronic acid injections can also be used for quick wrinkle treatment. A treatment in one of the BellaDerma specialist centres in Berlin is always preceded by a detailed consultation. Botox treatment for forehead wrinkles usually involves injections at six to eight points. This large-scale treatment of forehead wrinkles is necessary because the forehead muscle also has a considerable surface area and selective interventions promise little effectiveness. If desired, the smoothing of forehead wrinkles with Botox can also be applied preventively. The advantage is that the dosage is lower and in most cases fewer sessions are required. Treatment is carried out with a blunt cannula, which noticeably reduces side effects.
How long-lasting is Botox for forehead wrinkles?
The treatment with Botox against forehead wrinkles (frown lines) should be renewed at regular intervals. Experience shows that the treated muscle strengthens again after three to six months and must therefore be weakened by a new injection. In parallel, however, a more long-term effect can be achieved by refraining from raising the eyebrows and frowning.
