Botox® Treatment for Forehead Lines
Are you actually as worried as those lines on your forehead imply? When you frown, the muscles in your forehead are activated, causing wrinkles. As time goes on, these lines can get deeper.
Aging causes your skin to get thinner and drier. It also loses elasticity. When you add in the environmental factors like exposure to the sun, pollution, smoking or being around those who do, your skin takes a beating and can age faster than normal. Botox® can reverse these indicators of aging through a simple injection.
The Botox injection inhibits the activity of the muscles below the skin. This inhibition allows the skin to drape smoothly. The fine lines and furrows in your brow soften and, in some instances, disappear altogether. These injections will minimize horizontal lines and will do the same for the vertical lines that may be present between your eyebrows.
A Minimally Invasive Treatment
An injection with Botox is minimally invasive. The injections are made with a small needle and placed strategically in the underlying muscles. A topical anesthetic is often used to eliminate any discomfort from the injections. In most cases, the entire procedure takes no longer than 30 minutes. Results can be seen in a few days, and the treatment lasts for several months.
When your face is relaxed and you can still see your forehead lines, treatment with Botox may soften them, but not reduce them completely. Dermal fillers could be necessary to produce a totally smooth appearance. Your doctor will advise you on the best options to achieve the look you desire.
Even though they are usually most prominent on older faces, worry lines can develop on younger adults as well. Getting treatment for them can help you keep a youthful appearance despite your age.
