Treatment of forehead lines with anti wrinkle injections is one of the most effective ways of alleviating these wrinkles. The major cause of forehead lines is the activity of the frontalis muscle, which can be relaxed with anti wrinkle injections. Other factors to consider are smoking and sun exposure. Of course, there is not much you can do about the aging biological clock and gravity.


Case History:
This gentleman aged in his 30s wanted to treat his forehead wrinkles to prevent them from becoming deeper with time. 18 units of X was injected along strategic points on his forehead. The pre and post photos were taken 2 weeks apart and shows him trying to raise his eyebrows as much as he can.

The treatment explained:
The frontalis is the main muscle responsible for the wrinkling of your forehead. It lifts the eyebrows, causing horizontal lines across the forehead. Anti-wrinkle medication administered into the frontalis relaxes the muscle, smoothing out the dynamic lines.

Xeomin can be used to relax the muscles that cause forehead wrinkles. It is similar, if not better than botox.

The orbicularis oculi muscle counteracts the upwards pulling of the frontalis. In people with heavy upper eyelids, anti-wrinkle injections may cause a sense of heaviness in the eyebrows. Over treatment of the frontalis muscle with too much anti wrinkle injectables in the lateral parts can result in a brow droop. This can be offset with a lateral brow lift which targets the orbicularis oculi muscle..
