Forehead wrinkles got you down?

Posted by Barry Cohen on

One of the first wrinkles that someone will develop will be ones that form on the forehead just above the eyebrows.  This is because expressions the face is constantly making on a daily basis will eventually create creases in the skin.  In the last 10 years there has been a sharp spike in the amount of people visiting Plastic Surgeon offices and medical spa's to have Botox and other toxins injected into those creases.  These injections will smooth out the wrinkles acting as a muscle relaxer to smooth out the surface of the skin and generally last about 4-6 months.  The reason that people are rushing into get these procedures done are because forehead wrinkles can make you look tired,  older, sad or even angry when you don’t feel these emotions.position.

The eyebrow which is a distinguishing portion of our forehead, contain hair follicle. The human eye that includes the eyebrow and eyelid is responsible for expressing one’s non verbal emotions. The contour, shape and position of the eyebrow can suggest sadness, anger, confusion and alertness. The eyebrows droop down as a person ages, causing fullness and hooding of the upper eye lid. This change of the brow position is often accompanied by deep transverse lines of the forehead, vertical lines at the glabelar area and crow's feet at the lateral side of the eyes.

There are plenty of products that can help alleviate the eye brow and forehead wrinkle issues that we offer on and if interested you should look into products that contain GABA, plant cytokinens or Vitamin C which will heal wrinkles over time.

However surgery is also an option as the eyebrow position can be altered to help change your facial expression through a procedrue called a brow lift. It can be lifted by excising the excess skin of the forehead through an incision behind or just along the hairline.

The contour and shape of the eyebrows can also be altered by lifting the lateral half of eyebrow, to raise the brow upward and back to a more youthful position which is executed through an incision at the temple area of the scalp. This procedure is called temporal lift. Both of these procedures also improve or soften the deep transverse lines at the forehead, crow’s feet at the sides of the eyes and frown lines over the glabelar area. Thus resulting in a more young and relaxed look.
