Forehead wrinkles are among the first signs of aging. The best way to treat forehead wrinkles is through either regular use of BOTOX® Cosmetic or an endoscopic brow lift. The following information will help you understand each treatment option and how they could benefit you.
Wrinkles across the forehead usually indicate that your eyebrows are slowly dropping and you have had to exert additional effort to raise them in order to keep your eyes open. This sign of aging often begins to manifest when individuals are in their 30s. For more mild cases, BOTOX® Cosmetic can soften these lines by limiting muscle movement. For more serious cases or for a more permanent solution, an endoscopic brow lift can raise the brows and eliminate forehead wrinkles.
Treatment Method 1: BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a protein neurotoxin that temporarily blocks the nerve signals that cause upper facial muscles to contract. When strategically injected at the hands of an expert plastic surgeon, BOTOX® Cosmetic will soften the appearance of forehead wrinkles. This treatment method can minimize crow’s feet and prevent them from developing. It is also the preferred treatment for furrows between the brows. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a temporary solution and must be reapplied every three to six months to maintain the results. Nonetheless, many patients are very happy with BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments for forehead wrinkles. Each treatment session is quick, non-invasive, and has no recovery or downtime. Patients can resume normal daily activities immediately after treatment.
Treatment Method 2: Endoscopic Brow Lift
An endoscopic brow lift surgically raises the forehead and brows to eliminate forehead wrinkles. With minor incisions in the scalp and the use of an endoscope, Dr. Calabria will tighten the tissues and raise the brows to smooth the forehead and prevent the brows from hooding over the eyes. The endoscopic brow lift is highly effective in treating horizontal forehead wrinkles. The procedure moves the brows into a more pleasing position and can even improve the shape and openness of the eyes. An endoscopic brow lift offers a more permanent solution through surgery, which will require a period of downtime and recovery. Patient satisfaction with the endoscopic brow lift is high.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and the endoscopic brow lift are both effective treatments for minimizing forehead wrinkles and reducing the signs of forehead aging.
