Wrinkles on forehead – best treatment and the risks

Wrinkles on forehead – best treatment and the risks

Wrinkles on forehead? Let’s discuss a proven treatment and the risks of this treatment.

Some people will notice horizontal lines on their forehead early in life and if they left for too long, they will often deepen and may become almost impossible to abolish.

Let’s discuss the anatomy that cause the wrinkles on forehead. The forehead is made up of the frontalis muscle which spans across the entire forehead and ends above the eyebrows. This muscle is responsible for raising the eyebrows and keeping them from dropping or drooping downwards. When we raise our frontalis muscle, the eyebrows raise up and the skin above rises, causing the skin on the forehead to crease. This action us usually repetitive and a lot of the time we don’t even know we are doing it. When we think of anti-wrinkle injections that have gone wrong, we often think of either one eyebrow raised higher or shaped differently than the other or a drooping eyelid. Unfortunately this is a risk when having the lines on the forehead treated with anti-wrinkle injections.

About the treatment for wrinkles on forehead

A consultation with a qualified clinician is essential in order to assess muscle strength and anatomy. Once a dose is decided, small injections of anti-wrinkle injections are injected in the forehead. It is important for this area to remain as symmetrical as possible to avoid the tell tail signs. The dose that is decided is very important in trying to avoid any complications as discussed above.
