Skin Conditions - Glabella Lines
Whether you call them Glabellar Lines (glabella is the skin on your forehead above your nose and between your eyes), frown lines, or forehead furrows, they’re the lines in your forehead that come with aging and most likely caused by the repetitive or overuse of facial muscles. Some of the strongest muscles on the face, the procerus and corrugator supercilii muscle, are the culprits behind vertical lines and wrinkles in the lower part of the forehead, allowing the eyebrows to move with expressions and convey emotions.
Forehead lines caused by the overuse of facial muscles can create a look of stress or anger. To relax this unwanted look, laser therapy, muscle-relaxing injectables, aesthetician services like chemical peels, and medical-grade skincare products with retinol or exfoliating products with glycolic acid are a safe and effective treatment or combination of treatments.
Overuse of the forehead muscle to show interest, surprise, irritation, and tension can create dynamic wrinkles as we age that continue even when not making that particular expression. With repeated wrinkling of the skin, insignificant lines can slowly turn into moderate and severe wrinkles. Using a wrinkle-relaxing neurotoxin like Botox, or one of its popular competitors, we can successfully reduce the forehead’s movement by disabling the muscle’s signal to contract. Laser therapies, fillers, and chemical peels can help boost collagen to fill in the creases, crevices, and furrows. After treatment, you can expect smoother, tighter skin with less wrinkles.
Instead of growing your bangs out, it might be easier to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our professionals to determine the best course of action to effectively treat your forehead wrinkles. When your wrinkles begin to overstay their welcome on a face at rest, it’s the perfect time to seek treatment. Remember, the earlier you address a forehead wrinkle, the better the outcome.
