Your forehead skin experiences many types of stress, from sun exposure to expression lines and wrinkles. If you want to smooth forehead wrinkles, you have many treatment options. Injectables, laser treatments, and microneedling are only some of your choices to help. We will work with you to find a treatment that matches your needs and lifestyle.
What Causes Forehead Wrinkles?
Many factors contribute to the development of forehead wrinkles. Aging plays a significant role, and so does heredity. Exposure such as sun damage, pollution, stress, and natural facial expressions can gradually weaken the collagen that supports your skin. At first, forehead wrinkles may only appear when you frown or make other facial expressions. Over time, the repetitive motion can cause these wrinkles to be visible even when your face is at rest.
How to Get Rid of Forehead Wrinkles
You can address forehead wrinkles in several ways. Your Capital Laser & Skin Care team will explain your options and help you choose the best method.
This injectable treatment temporarily stops nerves from telling your facial muscles to contract. Unlike most other treatments, Botox® works on dynamic wrinkles created when your facial muscles move. It works within days, and the results last three to four months.
Dermal fillers can plump and smooth forehead wrinkles using various biologically safe materials. They give you immediate, natural-looking results that can last about 12 months.
We have a range of lasers to provide skin-tightening and anti-aging benefits. Laser treatments are highly customizable. They smooth forehead lines by triggering collagen production. This new collagen tightens and firms your forehead skin.
This treatment uses non-invasive ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the deep layers of your skin. Replacing the collagen lost to age can give you a youthful appearance with fewer lines and wrinkles.
This treatment promotes collagen development in two ways. First, the microneedles create tiny channels in the skin, triggering the healing process. The radiofrequency (RF) energy reaches deep into the skin to promote collagen development.
Is There Any Downtime With Treating Forehead Wrinkles?
Downtime will vary depending on the treatment. Injectables have no downtime, and you can immediately return to your usual activities. Other treatments, like Ultherapy® and RF microneedling, have little to no downtime. Laser treatments may require no recovery time, but more intensive treatments can involve some redness and peeling.
