Forehead lines, also known as forehead wrinkles or furrows, are a common sign of ageing that can appear as horizontal lines across the forehead.

What causes forehead lines?

Forehead lines, also known as forehead wrinkles or furrows, are a common sign of ageing that can appear as horizontal lines across the forehead. These lines are primarily caused by the natural ageing process, repetitive facial expressions, and the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. While forehead lines are a natural part of ageing, they can sometimes make a person appear older or more tired than they actually are. Fortunately, there are several effective treatments available to minimise the appearance of forehead lines, one of which is anti-wrinkle injections.

Forehead Lines Treatment with Anti-wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections, also known as muscle relaxants, are a popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment used to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. One of the most common and well-known anti-wrinkle injections is botulinum toxin type A, often marketed under brand names like Botox. This neurotoxin works by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscle contractions, thereby relaxing the muscles and reducing the formation of wrinkles.

Expected Outcome

When it comes to treating forehead lines with anti-wrinkle injections, a skilled medical professional like our practitioner Una will administer the injections in specific areas of the forehead. The procedure is relatively quick and generally does not require any anesthesia. Una will use a fine needle to inject small amounts of the neurotoxin into targeted muscles responsible for creating the forehead lines. The injections are typically administered at several points along the forehead to achieve a natural and balanced result.

Once the anti-wrinkle injections are injected into the targeted muscles, the botulinum toxin starts to take effect over the following days. It blocks the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions, which temporarily paralyses the treated muscles. As a result, the forehead muscles relax, and the appearance of forehead lines is diminished. The full effects of the treatment usually become noticeable within a week or two, and the results typically last for three months, depending on the individual’s metabolism and other factors.
