Is a fringe the answer?
Forehead lines can be either eliminated or reduced depending on your preference.
Why do we get forehead lines?
Forehead lines appear naturally as horizontal lines when you raise your eyebrows to display emotions such as surprise.
As a result of muscle overuse, sun exposure and smoking, these lines can appear more prominent and may become static so they are visible, even when your face is relaxed.
These lines can be softened or removed with wrinkle relaxers.
Many people like to retain a few lines with raising their eyebrows to keep a natural look. A young person can afford to eliminate the forehead lines and still look natural.
The forehead muscle is the only muscle that raises your eyebrows. All of the other muscles in the area pull the eyebrows down. Some people with strong lines in the forehead have them due to the need to keep their eyebrows in a permanently elevated position to prevent the upper eyelids from resting on the eyelashes. If you have this need, weakening the forehead muscles can make your eyebrows drop and your eyes feel heavy. You may still be able to reduce the forehead lines but the dose needs to be very small.
Everyone can have a good outcome with the correct dose; therefore it is worth taking it slowly until the desired result is achieved.
Here is an example of a different frown pattern. You can see one prominent line just above the eyebrows. In the post treatment photos you can see that the line is significantly reduced with raising the eyebrows and absent at rest. With repeated treatments this line will continue to soften. In treating forehead lines we need to balance the reduction of the lines with the position of the eyebrows.
