What’s the Best Way to Treat Forehead Wrinkles?

Posted July 11, 2016 in BOTOX®, Brow Lift Surgery, Forehead Wrinkles

Forehead wrinkles may make you look older than you feel. They may also cause you to look perpetually angry, stressed, or concerned and prevent you from being able to show your true emotional state. Thankfully, with modern technology and developments in the plastic surgery industry, these wrinkles do not have to be permanent. BOTOX® Cosmetic or a brow lift can soften forehead wrinkles and give you a smoother and more youthful-looking face.

Treatment With BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic Before and After PhotosBOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription neurotoxin that can minimize the appearance of wrinkles in the forehead and brow area. When injected into the forehead muscles, BOTOX® Cosmetic forces the muscles to relax so that the skin can become smooth again. Many patients who use BOTOX® Cosmetic appreciate that it is a very safe treatment, has a low risk of complications, produces natural-looking results, is far more affordable than surgical options, and requires no time-consuming procedure, surgery, or downtime. Choosing treatment for forehead wrinkles with BOTOX® Cosmetic can be an excellent way to soften your forehead and create a more approachable and youthful appearance.

Treatment With Brow Lift Surgery

Brow Lift Before and After PhotosA brow lift is another excellent option for individuals who would like to eliminate their forehead wrinkles. The brow lift is a surgical procedure that improves the shape of the brow so that it is more youthfully elevated. A sagging brow, which commonly occurs with aging, can lead to forehead wrinkles due to the constant effort that the forehead muscles exert to raise the brow. Brow lift surgery repositions the brow so that the forehead muscles do not have to work to raise the brow, thereby minimizing the appearance of forehead wrinkles. In most cases, a brow lift is performed endoscopically and will leave some swelling and bruising around the eyes for two to three weeks of recovery. Results from a brow lift can be long lasting and can minimize forehead wrinkles for many years.
