Forehead wrinkle treatment


What are forehead wrinkles?

Horizontal forehead lines, sometimes called "worry lines" or a "furrowed brow", are the lines and wrinkles that appear due to the forehead muscles contracting when we raise our eyebrows. This is a normal part of showing facial expressions, such as surprise, anger, concern, joy, and so on.
However, both the ageing process and repetitive facial expressions can lead to these forehead lines becoming deep creases, more prominent, or not disappearing at rest — which can leave you looking permanently angry, stern or tired, even when you're not!


How does Botox help?

Anti-wrinkle injections using Botox or Azzalure can help to relax the muscles that cause these forehead lines, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.

If your forehead lines are not there all the time, Botox/Azzalure injections can also be used to help prevent these lines from developing, before they become more noticable in the first place!

Additionally, the forehead anti-wrinkle injections can also be use to help shape your eyebrows or correct asymmetry.

When will I see the effects?

You should start to see/feel the effects of Botox and Azzalure on your forehead after 3 to 5 days, but it typically takes up to 2 weeks before the full effect is achieved. A free review appointment is usually made at this time, where the effect can be fully assessed by Doctor Alex, and topped-up if necessary.

How long does the forehead treatment last for?

Botox and Azzalure injections to the forehead usually last between 3 to 6 months before the next treatment is required.

Is it painful?

No. You may feel a slight pinprick sensation as the area is injected. Doctor Alex can also apply special numbing cream beforehand if you are worried about this.

How long is recovery time?

More or less immediate recovery — it can be performed in your lunch break! As a needle is used for the injection, there is a chance you may get a small amount of bleeding/bruising, which usually resolves after a few days.
