Have lots of forehead wrinkles? Is there any way to treat this?

Botox: Botox will relax your forehead muscles temporarily but it is very efficient. However, if you are raising your eyebrows to see better, relaxing your forehead will make your eyelids heavier and you won't be happy. You may need a brow or forehead lift. Its best to consult a board sertified plastic surgeon to get a good analysis of your face and find the appropriate treatment. ...Read more

Any ideas on why I might be getting these forehead wrinkles at 25?

Muscle contraction: Forehead wrinkles are caused by excessive use of the frontalis muscle. This is done by actions that cause this muscle to contract, namely raising the eyebrow. Simillarly frowning can cause wrinkles in the glabella or central forehead due to the procerus and corrugator muscles contracting. These can all be addressed with consistent use of botox to these areas. Over time the lines will soften. ...Read more

What can I do or take in order to get rid of forehead wrinkles?

Not necessary: Neuromodulators (botox, xeomin (incobotulinumtoxin a) ; dysport) can weaken the muscles that animate the face and efface lines. This is an in office procedure where the product is injected in the target muscle. In your case it would be the frontalis muscle (forehead muscle).

Will dermal fillers get rid of forehead wrinkles and fine lines?

Botox is better: If you are looking to minimize forehead wrinkles, Botox is a better option. The cause of those lines is movement of your muscles. Botox blocks the receptors in your brain from being able to communicate with the muscle it is injected into. That in turn reduces muscle contraction, which gets rid of the lines. Dermal fillers are used more for areas that have lines due to lose of volume. ...Read more

Is starting off on Retin-A 0.025% too weak for forehead wrinkles? Never been on it before. Is it always best to start off on lowest percentage?

Yes: I tell my patients besides starting at the lowest percentage use every other night for a few days and slowly progress to every night. The problem is dryness redness and flaking of the skin. It turns a lot of patients off and I find the slow approach is better tolerated. ...Read more

Dermatologists: currently, what is the most long lasting proven filler for deep forehead wrinkles that doesn't result in nodules under the skin?

Weaken muscle first: When dealing with horizontal forehead lines, it is recommended to first weaken the forehead with some botox. The wrinkles are caused by active muscle motion, so even if you put filler in there, the lines will still show because the frontalis muscle can contract. First have your forehead injected and wait until the Botox works. Then you can use a softer ha filler like belotero or juvederm ultra. ...Read more

Board certified dermatologist wants to use dysport for my deep forehead wrinkles. I said she is wrong. It could result in a lowering brow. Now what?

Board certified dermatologist wants to use dysport for my deep forehead wrinkles. I said she is wrong. It could result in a lowering brow. Now what?

It depends: The use of any approved neurotoxin to reduce forehead lines has to be used carefully. Many doctors will adjust the dosage and location to produce a beneficial result. You should express your concerns to your doctor about brow position and listen carefully to the plan. All the treatments are temporary and can be done in a step wise fashion to soften the lines without complete elimination. ...Read more

Call your doctor!: Call the doctor who wrote the prescription and explain what is happening. Most wrinkle creams prescribed by dermatologists contain a retinoid (such as retin-a), and that would not cause eyebrow hairs to shed; but if you believe it is due to the cream, you need to call the person who prescribed it. ...Read more

I have faint wrinkle lines on my forehead, not visible unless you look closely. I have skin tending to be on the dry side. How do I reverse this?

Young and wrinkled!: Don't look at them! But seriously, folks, as we mature, this will happen. Use sunscreen/moisturizer daily, apply it to moistened skin. Respect the sun, don't fear it. Wear a nice, dashing sun hat and get out there. A little thought now will keep you looking great forever. ...Read more

1st wrinkle on forehead. What are the least expensive ways to keep it at bay or remove. I want to prevent more from coming!

Don't frown. . .: Best way to avoid wrinkles is to stop frowning and to avoid sun. Since we can't do latter, try to apply sunscreen/sunblock before exposure. Botox is best (and not inexpensive) means to temporarily get rid of wrinkles by paralyzing that particular muscle. Will need repeat injections over time. And don't smoke - that's bad for skin, too. ...Read more

Does making facial expressions or raising your forehead or flexing face muscles decrease wrinkles?

Does making facial expressions or raising your forehead or flexing face muscles decrease wrinkles?

No: Making facial expressions will have no effect on the development of wrinkles. Facial rhytids or wrinkles come from the effect of aging and sun exposure on the collagen layer of skin. As this layer thins, the elasticity of skin diminishes and facial expressions tend to stay permanently. ...Read more

Instead of botox for a long horizontal forehead wrinkle, can a laser be focused along the inside of the line to then cause a scab, then heal?

Only: Only a specific evaluation of your issues can lead to the best customized solution. Nowadays in facial aesthetics we can achieve natural results 100% of the time, and we only need to make skin incisions 5% of the time, usually as the second or third resort. The right lasers, peels, fillers and Botox can mean a result of 2-30 years of improvement.

The idea of placing volume (fat transfer, temporary fillers, or long-term fillers) has revolutionized facial aesthetics. It makes the results of surgery or laser much more natural and often helps to avoid incisions. Regarding your question about artefill, this might help:


i am a cosmetic surgeon who has used artefill for about 5 years. My experience with artefill has been exceptional in every respect. I like artefill's predictability and smoothness. Patients like the fact that they are paying for something one time, and getting (likely) 10-15 years of volume correction. It costs about twice what the other fillers cost, but over time it costs about a fifth of the others. A great value. The make of artefill is a us company, and they are the only company that has submitted 5-years of safety data to the fda. There are concerns with any filler, but the safety of all fillers is very high, if placed by an experienced injector. Ask to see 5 or 10 sets of before and after photos, and you'll know you got the right injector! ...Read more

It's: It's permanent. It consists of teflon microspheres which do not get broken down by the body, so in that sense yes, it I long term. In another sense, skin will always stretch, wrinkle, sag, distort, etc so how "permanent/or long lasting" can any fix be!? Or would you want it to be. ...Read more

I got sunburned on my face a month ago and now I have wrinkles on my forehead. I'm 19 was wondering if they'll go away and what I should do?

I got sunburned on my face a month ago and now I have wrinkles on my forehead. I'm 19 was wondering if they'll go away and what I should do?

Moisturize, SPF: If the burn was severe (peeled) then the new skin will be very sensitive to sun. Wrinkling at your age may also indicate that the skin is dry. I would recommend a good moisturizer and be sure to always use SPF (even when you're not planning to be outside). If you repeatedly expose your face to the sun the wrinkles will eventually be permanent. ...Read more

Botox: Botox and Dysport are both excellent ways to reduce wrinkles... The question is how much has your brow dropped... The answer is in your eyes and eyelids... Are they droopy from your eyebrows sitting on your eyelids? ... If so then you may be a candidate for a browlift where as Botox can actually make this condtion worse.... See a facial plastic surgeon and get an opinion based on your appearance... Considering the cost of long term Botox and surgery... The consult would be worth it!

Does the use of daily moisturizing lotion on the forehead help prevent wrinkles from forming?

Probably not: Moisturizer affects only the outer, non-living lining of the skin. It will minimize wrinkling and make the skin feel softer and smoother. But it does not noursih or change the underlying living tissue, so it will not prevent wrinkle formation. It does not harm to use the lotion, and the cosmetic industry makes tons of money selling products offering relief in this area. ...Read more

Dry, irritated forehead, wrinkle has appeared a few months ago. I'm 19 years old and this is very bad for me. Could be from the acne cream in the past.

Dry irritated skin: The dry irritated skin on your forehead could be from an acne cream but it could also be eczema or seborrhea (dandruff of the face).You could try an over the counter Hydrocortisone cream and see if that helps. If it persists you should see a dermatologist. You are too young to be suffering from this problem. You also want to be sure the dryness is not pre-skin cancers. Don't let it persist ...Read more
