Forehead Wrinkles and Lines


Forehead wrinkles and lines develop with age as our eyebrows descend due to the affects of gravity and loss of skin elasticity.  To compensate for this, most people activate the frontalis muscle which elevates the eyebrows but also causes the furrows seen traversing the forehead.  Over time, these furrows develop into ingrained resting lines.  Small doses of DYSPORT or BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to effectively relax the muscles’ hyperactivity and thus improve the appearance of forehead lines. When treating this area with a Dysport or BOTOX injection, however, the surgeon and patient must balance the forehead wrinkle effacement effects of relaxing the muscle with eyebrow position.
