Men in the media seem either never to age (see Pharrell Williams or Keanu Reeves, who have both inspired conspiracy theories involving vampires and immortality) or those who seem to age much slower than the rest of us (see Leonardo DiCaprio or Pierce Brosnan, the Romeo and Bond who are still Hollywood heartthrobs). A really telling sign of age, as we all know, is forehead lines, particularly deep forehead wrinkles, the horizontal furrows across the forehead that can make any man look older than their actual age.
Seen in the past as a traditionally feminine activity, cosmetic procedures are being adopted by more and more men who want to reverse or reduce the signs of ageing. This is no surprise, and by no means a new trend; Ancient Greek men would apply creams and oils to their skin to prevent ageing, while in Ancient Egypt, men used a cream made of water and natron to ward off signs of age. Throughout history, both men and women have been constantly on the search for the perfect treatment or product to stave off wrinkles and fine lines, but here in the 21st century, we have options that guarantee positive results every time.
Deep Forehead Wrinkles : How Can We Help?
At PHI, we have a range of treatments to correct and prevent forehead lines that are little more reliable than the Ancient Egyptian method of reciting a spell while spreading honey across the skin.
Botox is one of the options we provide for men who feel their deep forehead wrinkles are ageing them, and is used best as a preventative, as it won’t correct static lines, where wrinkles have become deeper furrows that are very visible even when the forehead is at rest.
We also use dermal fillers to prevent and correct lines, adding hyaluronic acid to skin, a cushioning agent that helps skin ‘bounce back’ from facial expressions. The range of fillers used at PHI Clinic is Juvederm by Allergan, which are, rather literally, used to fill in fine lines and wrinkles to restore a youthful look to the face. As well as our use of injectables, we use devices like Ultraformer to tighten skin and the Erbium YAG laser to perform resurfacing procedures that can alter the look of the face to turn back the clock.
No Obligation Consultation
At PHI Clinic, 102 Harley Street, we always recommend preventative measures, as it is much easier to prevent damage happening than it is to correct it, especially when lines are formed over a number of years with no treatment, and lifestyle factors that worsen the condition.
