Over time the skin naturally loses fullness and plumpness, which can result in forehead lines and wrinkles. These lines are usually caused by a reduction in elastin and collagen in the skin. Collagen and elastin levels in the skin will drop as we age, and can also be affected by sun damage, smoking, stress and genetics.
Some people will be genetically more susceptible to forehead wrinkles, whilst others might naturally have skin that is more resilient. UV rays from sunlight also have a considerable impact on elastin and collagen levels as they break down with overexposure to the sun. All these things can result in forehead lines such as frown lines and wrinkles.
Forehead lines can make your facial expressions look more negative and result in you looking tired, stressed or miserable. For some individuals, this can have a significant effect on their confidence and self-esteem, as they often don’t feel like they look themselves. When your appearance is beginning to impact your overall happiness and quality of life, it can be worth considering treatments to reduce the appearance of forehead lines.
Forehead Lines Treatment At Hans Place Practice
Hans Place Practice was on the first clinics in the country to focus specifically on non-invasive and minor surgical aesthetic treatments. We offer a range of treatment options for forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and other aesthetic concerns. When it comes to forehead lines, we tend to recommend Botox as a treatment option. However, we advise that anyone considering treatment books a skincare assessment before making a final decision.
Using Botox To Treat Forehead Lines
Administered by healthcare professionals, Botox is a non-surgical treatment which involves a series of small injections. A prescription medicine is used, and it works by blocking the nerve impulses into the injected muscles. As the nerves are blocked, it reduces movement and muscle activity which can reduce the appearance of forehead lines and wrinkles.
Botox treatment can be used to treat forehead lines temporarily and does not offer permanent results. Most patients see an improvement in forehead lines within a few days, and results will continue to improve over 30 days. Everybody is different, and the effects of Botox on forehead lines will vary between patients.
