With modern day stresses on the skin, lack of sleep or over animation of the muscles, deep lines can appear on the forehead making you look tired, stressed, angry or aged. With careful placement of muscle relaxant injections, Nurse Julie can help soften these lines whist maintaining your natural facial expressions and feminine or masculine features.
Why have I got forehead lines?
The ageing process plays a big part in forming wrinkles. Over time, shrinkage of facial bone structure, loss of collagen, reaction to emotion, reduced skin elasticity and gravity cause forehead wrinkles. However, the overall cause is mainly due to the natural breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin plus years of exposure to the harmful UV rays from the sun – this is why it is so important to wear sun protection factor (SPF 50) every day. Other contributing factors to this process include; smoking, genetics and skin type. Anti-wrinkle injections can significantly reduce forehead lines without surgery. It’s important to know that you can develop frown lines no matter how good a skin routine you have.
Can I have my forehead treated on it’s own as one area?
The short answer is no. In some cases based on their clinical merit, it maybe that Nurse Julie could treat the forehead on it’s own. However, in more cases that not, Nurse Julie will need to treat in-between the eyebrows to give your forehead the support it needs – a bit like a bridge. The reality it, it is just a bit too risky to treat the forehead alone because of the possible adverse effects that can occur which are listed below:
- Uneven eyebrow(s)
- A heavy forehead
What happens during the procedure?
Nurse Julie will use thin needles to inject the anti-wrinkle injection treatment into the forehead lines which block the signals from the nerves to the muscles. She will ask you to look surprised to identify the exact areas to inject. After 5-10 days the injected muscle won’t contract anymore and the forehead lines will soften, giving your skin a smoother appearance.
