As one of the focal points of how we convey our emotions, forehead wrinkles appear more prominently as we age. Regardless of who you are, you’ll experience forehead wrinkles at some point during your lifetime. The good news is that there are solutions. But what are they?
In this blog, the team at FaceByFisher will detail the causes of forehead wrinkles, how to prevent them, and how to get rid of them or at least reduce their appearance. Let’s dive in.
What Causes Forehead Wrinkles?
The main reason we end up with forehead wrinkles is decreased collagen and elastin production, which give our skin elasticity and firmness.
Many things can cause a loss of collagen and elastin. Some examples include age, drinking and smoking, sun damage, and low water intake.
How Can You Prevent Forehead Wrinkles?
You should consider the following if you’re trying to prevent forehead wrinkles.
- Protect against the sun: Studies have shown that the sun can put you at risk of getting wrinkles, so using quality sunscreen daily will help prevent their appearance or stop your forehead wrinkles from worsening.
- Drink more water: Dry skin is one of the leading factors for wrinkles. To prevent forehead wrinkles, you must ensure you drink as much water as necessary according to your weight and other factors.
- Eat a balanced diet: Try to balance your diet with healthy foods and include foods with high levels of omega-3 and vitamin C. Including foods with these nutrients in your diet will help improve your skin’s overall health and reduce signs of aging like forehead wrinkles.
How to Get Rid of Forehead Wrinkles
- Brow Lift
A brow lift procedure lifts your brow to eliminate forehead wrinkles and create a more youthful appearance. During a brow lift, the surgeon makes three small incisions endoscopically just behind the hairline.
An endoscopic brow lift is one of the best methods to get rid of forehead wrinkles, as it ensures a shorter recovery time and minimal scarring.
Botox is a great option for those wanting a non-invasive solution. Botox is administered by injection, and once injected, a neuromuscular blocking agent helps smooth out wrinkles.
However, you must ensure you receive the correct Botox dose, as some people need more injections than others to smooth wrinkles. It should also be noted that Botox does wear off and requires recurring treatments to keep forehead wrinkles at bay.
- Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are used in a procedure where a series of small gel injections are pushed into the skin. The fillers contain hyaluronic acid (a natural sugar) and water, which help restore your skin’s elasticity and smooth out your forehead wrinkles.
Like Botox, how many injections you require will depend on the severity of your forehead wrinkles.
- Deep FX Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment
One of the best ways to reduce forehead wrinkles is to undergo Deep FX CO2 laser treatment. This procedure is wholly safe and has been proven to restore collagen, thus decreasing the depth of forehead wrinkles.
It is also suitable for other areas of the face and is thus an incredible procedure to undergo if you want to create a more youthful appearance.
