A. Neuromodulator Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Eucevia injections to the forehead is one of the leading ways to reduce and eliminate forehead wrinkles. A very large flat muscle-frontalis- contracts to raise the eye brows. After years of movement and scrunching the forehead skin, dynamic wrinkles can become etched in resting position. Botox works by disrupting signals from nerves to muscles. The muscle then remains static and this in turn causes wrinkles to relax and soften. Because the Botox activity only works to minimize movement it is most highly effective to reverse and prevent deep permanent wrinkles at earlier stages.
Static lines which are permanent lines that show up as cracks in the skin do better with multiple modality treatments.
- Neurotoxin-Botox – to calm the movement
- Fillers to fill wrinkles and hollows deep to superficial
- Collagen rejuvenation to plump and structure the forehead skin, which is an extremely high risk area for sun damage; deep microneedling and fractionated laser treatments. Microneedling triggers the fibroblasts to stimulate injury repair response. This is a minimally invasive procedure recommended in a series that works on all skin types and can be booked all year round.
