There are many on the quest for forehead wrinkles treatment. When we envisage getting wrinkles at a later age and start to feel concerned that we may see them creeping through, our eyes are usually drawn almost immediately to our foreheads – but why?
Well, a lot of expression is in our foreheads so it seems only natural that this would be the first place that we would acquire them; however, some people do start to see wrinkles creeping in this area from as early as 16 years old. This is more prominent in males and is usually the horizontal forehead lines as opposed to our frown lines which are positioned just in between the eyebrows. Although both sets of wrinkles can be a visible factor, a lot of people are not really concerned at this stage as the wrinkles would be slight in appearance.
In the 70s and 80s when we acquired these forehead wrinkles, we most likely would not even have paid them any attention whatsoever; the gravity of such a finding would bear no significance on our state of mind. I would guess that in the 2000’s it’s no different, but being slightly above the age bracket it would be impossible for me to comment.
Below I will talk a little bit about forehead wrinkles treatment.
Forehead wrinkles in our 20s
When we reach our 20s, there is a small possibility that we have some forehead wrinkles. These may be visible lines of expression but when the face is at rest, they may be almost invisible. If when you are at a relaxed expression you are beginning to see the line is fixed on the forehead, then this may be a sign that light applications of Baby Botox could be a treatment solution for you.
What is Baby Botox?
I think in order to explain this properly, I need to talk in a little bit more detail about how Botox® is administered. The strength of Botox® remains consistent, however the volume of Botox® applied per injection can differ. This is why you may see slightly different appearances post treatment; one patient may appear completely frozen without the ability to use much expression at all, and that would be the result of a large quantity of Botox® administered within specific areas of the face.
You may not be able to notice some patients have even had Botox® at all as they still are able to maintain expression but don’t show any or many signs of ageing on their face due to sun damage. Again, this would be down to the quantity of the product that is placed within the specific areas of the face that is allowing patients to maintain some lines of expression, although the lines are significantly reduced in appearance.
Baby Botox essentially relates to this side of the forehead wrinkles treatment. Far lighter applications in more areas enable the face to maintain expression and not to overdo it, as they say. If you are having Botox® in your 20s Baby Botox will almost certainly be the right treatment option for you.
Forehead wrinkles treatment in our 30s and upwards
“I’ve got these lines, so many lines, why do I have so many lines?”
After the age of 30, the amount of collagen that the body reproduces begins to slow down. The amount of times that we may have smiled will (hopefully) be in the millions at this point, so it will seem only natural that with hundreds and thousands and millions of expressions and smiles throughout our lifetime, that we might leave some form of record of it – and that is exactly what this is.
We are ageing; we knew it was coming. Professional people are starting to look considerably younger. The TV show that is still on the telly now like when you were a child houses main characters that seem to be a quarter of the age of the characters featured when you were a child.
Fortunately for us, when we are in our 30s we know more; we have experienced more, and we have the ability to take action so having wrinkles at this stage is much better than having to be in our teens. I doubt anyone’s mother will be paying for their teenagers forehead wrinkles treatment.
At 30, lines may now be apparent without expression and it’s at this stage that, if we wish to maintain a youthful glow, we might want to explore slightly higher quantities of Botox® within those areas in order to assist.
Botox® has been used widely in the cosmetic industry for many years now and is the number one treatment for reducing the appearance by relaxing the muscle that creates the wrinkle. There is no other treatment that can provide such a result and therefore it remains – and probably will always remain – the number one treatment for wrinkle prevention.
Dermal fillers most certainly work as well, only in a slightly different way. Dermal fillers would treat forehead wrinkles by placing HA filler under the surface of the skin which in time, retains water that will be able to plump up the skin and smooth out those wrinkles. This is a treatment that is often used in conjunction with Botox when treating wrinkles at PHI.
Other forehead wrinkles treatment options
There are many other treatments that can plump up the skin, reduce wrinkles and reduce ageing of the skin. At PHI Clinic, we have the largest collection of medical devices in the UK and a number of these treatments can be used to stimulate collagen, tighten skin, and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Radio-frequency technology and needle based radio-frequency technology can work to tighten the skin and to stimulate collagen.
Ultrasound technology can target the deeper structures of the face while stimulating collagen and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Fractional and ablative laser resurfacing
Resurfacing treatment targets the skin cells and destroys them, encouraging new healthy skin cells to grow within specific areas. Not only can this type of treatment reduce wrinkles, but it can also work to treat scars and burns. Dr Tapan is regarded as an international expert and his team at PHI Clinic have performed hundreds of forehead wrinkles treatments.
So, in the quest to target the forehead wrinkles there most certainly are a lot of options for you; just ensure that you check the credentials of the practitioner performing the treatment; ensure they are CQC registered and can show you before and after images of patients they have treated in the past.
I hope that this is in someway helpful to you and if you would like to schedule a confidential consultation at PHI Clinic, please contact us on 0207 034 5999.
