How to Get Rid of Forehead Wrinkles

Do you have deep horizontal wrinkles across your forehead? They come from the movement of your facial muscles. The most effective way to treat them is with a muscle relaxer like Dysport®. This treatment smooths the appearance of forehead wrinkles and help prevent new ones from developing. 

What Causes Forehead Wrinkles?

The movement of facial muscles causes many forehead wrinkles. How fast this process occurs depends on genetic and environmental factors. Sun exposure weakens collagen, making lines and wrinkles develop faster. Smoking also causes damage to the skin that contributes to lines and wrinkles.

How to Get Rid of Forehead Wrinkles 

Deep furrows in your forehead often come from facial expressions like frowning or raising your eyebrows. Over time, the muscle activity creates creases in the skin that do not go away even when your face is at rest. 

The most effective way to treat forehead wrinkles is to relax the muscles. At New York Skin & Vein Centers, we offer Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® to treat forehead wrinkles. All three act on the muscles in the forehead by stopping the facial nerves from sending signals. The muscle stops pulling on the skin without input from the nerve, letting your lines and wrinkles relax. 

Where Else Can Wrinkle Relaxers Be Used?

Dysport® and its relatives work on forehead wrinkles and several other areas. They can also treat lines and wrinkles around the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) or deep vertical lines between the eyebrows. Your injection specialist will select the right formula for the area of the face being treated. In many cases, our injection specialists prefer Dysport® over similar options.

How Much Does it Cost to Get Rid of Forehead Wrinkles?

Some providers of Dysport® and similar treatments charge by the unit of product. This situation can make you uncomfortable in negotiating the number of units. To ensure you always know what to expect, we charge by the area. Your price for the forehead area will remain consistent each time you come for treatment. And if you need a touchup because of a wrinkle you don’t like in the same area, it’s free!

Is There Any Downtime With Forehead Wrinkle Treatment?

Wrinkle relaxers like Dysport® have no downtime. Many people get the treatment and return to work or daily activities afterward. Some people notice some small red spots or bruises in the injection area. This will resolve within a day or two. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Forehead Wrinkle Treatment?

If you have forehead wrinkles you want to get rid of, you may be a good candidate for treatment with wrinkle relaxers. You should have reasonable expectations about your results. You might not make a good candidate if you have certain medical conditions.
