Anti-wrinkle injections, also known as botox are one of the most common aesthetic treatments performed worldwide. When performed in the upper face region, the aim is to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the forehead by relaxing the muscles that lie beneath. The reason lines and wrinkles form on the forehead and around the eyes is due to making daily facial expressions such as frowning, being surprised, laughing. Some people naturally create much stronger expression than others on a day-to-day basis, and therefore tend to form lines more easily as the skin folds due to the underlying muscles contracting.
Many people believe lines and wrinkles on the forehead are due to ageing, however, you can begin to form lines as early as your twenties if you are someone who makes a lot of expression. If you want to prevent lines from forming on the forehead, a good time to start is when you first start to notice very fine lines forming. Many young people use anti-wrinkle injections as a preventative measure. However, if lines have already formed (static lines), using anti-wrinkle injections on the forehead can also reverse these lines, providing that you go for regular treatments (typically every 3-4 months).
