Forehead Lines

Forehead lines in Hyderabad

Forehead lines are natural expression lines due to the movement of the underlying facial muscles called the frontalis. The Frontalis muscle contracts and relaxes with facial expressions and other facial muscles.

These lines tend to become more prominent with factors like

1) Ageing: Just like any other body part, skin also, in the process of ageing, loses its natural elasticity. This makes the skin thinner; during this process, the muscle contractions are seen prominently, and lines appear. Oil and sweat gland production decrease as we age; this makes the skin dry and prone to wrinkles.

2) Sun Exposure: continuous exposure to UV radiation UVA and UVB damages the elastin and collagen fibres of the skin, leading to premature ageing.

Once the lines develop (photo ageing or chronological ageing), dynamic lines with time progress into static lines (seen even without expression).

Treatments for Forehead Lines

Treatment options for forehead lines depend on the severity, age and patient choice.

  • Topicals: topical creams containing retinol stimulate collagen and elastin production, improving the skin's ageing.
  • Botul-inum toxin injections: This is the most effective treatment, where in botul-inum toxin, a protein is used to treat the lines. This works by relaxing the muscle, hence the expression lines. The results are 100 per cent and seen in 48 hours, peaking at 2 weeks and lasting up to 6 months.

  • Peels: medium-depth peels like TCA and phenols help treat fine lines by resurfacing.
  • Fillers: skin booster HA fillers. VISCODERM is a free hyaluronic acid that was recently on the market and treats the lines almost instantly without affecting muscle movement.
  • Lasers: Co2 and erbium lasers help in skin resurfacing and the lines. It also improves the skin texture.

Prevention For Forehead Lines:

  1. Healthy balanced diet
  2. Avoid smoking
  3. Good skincare routine
  4. Sun protection
  5. Early intervention.
