When addressing the lines on the forehead, we are often asked what the preferred method of treatment is; dermal fillers or Botox?
The forehead lines that we are referring to are the horizontal lines that go along the forehead above the brows, and not frown (glabellar) lines, which are vertical wrinkles between the brows.
The real answer is: it depends.
Forehead Lines Botox & Fillers
When we are treating lines of expression and looking to reduce the appearance of the wrinkle in expression we would use forehead lines Botox. However, if the line is static (still visible even at rest) it may be that a dermal filler is required to fill in and smooth out that wrinkle. Another treatment that may also provide positive results is a fractional resurfacing treatment which would work to remove some of the top layers of skin encouraging healing in that area, which includes stimulating collagen and elastin and therefore will improve the appearance of wrinkles over time.
Please be aware that more than one treatment may be required in order to obtain the optimal result and there is no guarantee of a successful treatment, as results vary from person to person. This can be discussed in a consultation with a highly trained aesthetic therapist.
