How to get rid of forehead wrinkles

The lines and wrinkles that appear on our forehead are usually the first signs of ageing that we see. Foreheads are an expressive area of the face, which is great for communicating emotion, but over time, these wrinkles start to become set in. It’s also the result of the skin becoming less firm and springy as we age thanks to the decline in collagen and elastin production. This makes the skin less resilient, so when it’s continuously squashed into a crease, it loses the ability to spring back.

When it comes to smoothing forehead lines, it all comes down to stimulating collagen or relaxing the muscles that created the line in the first place. Whether you’re looking to smooth your lines via skincare or head straight to in-clinic treatments for quick and effective results, these are our top five forehead wrinkle solutions.

What are the best treatments for minimising forehead wrinkles?

Botox 

Botox is considered by aesthetic practitioners to be the gold-standard treatment for softening lines and wrinkles on the face, and often also the neck. It relaxes muscles by temporarily blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle contractions that cause lines and wrinkles.

Botox is most commonly used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet around the eyes, and forehead lines, but it’s also an effective treatment for tooth grinding, gummy smile, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and migraines. It’s quick, very effective and the results last for several months.

Viscoderm Hydrobooster

Viscoderm Hydrobooster is a stabilised hyaluronic acid injectable which offers dual-action results: intensely hydrating the skin from within whilst also smoothing out and restructuring wrinkles.

This treatment noticeably improves elasticity, radiance, and smoothness of the skin, whilst also eliminating lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Viscoderm Hydrobooster is particularly useful for those with signs of ageing around mobile areas of the face such as around the mouth, eyes and forehead.

Retinoids

Start using a cream containing some form of vitamin A, such as retinol. This ingredient can be transformative for the skin because it kick-starts collagen production and at the same time reduces the rate of collagen breakdown in the skin, so your existing collagen lasts longer, and new collagen is made faster

Retinol also speeds up the rate at which ageing skin cells renew themselves, which has an exfoliating effect on the skin, reducing oiliness and the production of excess pigment in the skin. These effects all help to make the skin look smoother, clearer and less wrinkled.

Microneedling

Microneedling uses an electronic pen with multiple small needles to create tiny ‘micro-injuries’ or punctures in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin in the area being treated, creating a fresher, smoother, firmer surface. Microneedling is an excellent prevention method, as well as being effective for existing lines and wrinkles. Although, the effects aren’t as immediate as injectable treatments and for best results, multiple treatments are usually advised spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

Radiofrequency microneedling skin tightening

Also commonly referred to as a way of ‘shrink-wrapping’ the skin, radiofrequency microneedling using a device such as the Profound RF heats up the deeper skin tissues – bearably – to the point where collagen within the skin tissue contracts and tightens, so you get an instant tightening effect. It also creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin which kick starts the skin cells into wound-repairing mode.

Profound RF effectively tightens, smoothens and hydrates the skin in just a single treatment. In clinical trials, Profound RF was found to deliver 1/3 of the result of a surgical facelift in a single treatment and that 100% of patients had a clinically evident response to treatment.

Dermal filler 

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are an excellent option for reducing forehead lines. They provide natural results for gently plumping the skin, smoothing out lines and wrinkles and helping to restore a fresher and more youthful look. They also stimulate the production of collagen, meaning that their effects continue to develop over time.
