Wrinkles do not form simply because we age. Factors including genetics, skin type, lifestyle, diet, alcohol and nicotine use, and exposure to UV radiation as well as lack of sleep, exercise and oxygen all play their part in skin ageing and deterioration.
Forehead lines are as much the result of sagging skin as of facial expressions. Raising your eyebrows in surprise or concentrating, squinting or frowning – basically every expression in which you use your eyebrows eventually results in horizontal ridges forming on the forehead. Over the years, elastin and collagen in the skin break down, causing the structure of the dermis to gradually lose its ability to stay smooth and firm. The older you get, the deeper and more visible these lines become.
Forehead lines can be treated effectively with botox, fillers and skin boosters.
For the wrinkles in the center of the forehead, our first choice recommendation would be reducing the muscle movement by treating them with botox.
For deeper lines, a treatment with fillers would be an excellent addition in order to smoothen out the skin.
Wrinkles will be less likely to return after the skin is firmed up with skin boosters. This powerful skin rejuvenation therapy stimulates the biological functions of collagen and elastin in the skin, giving skin folds less chance to form, and giving you a healthy, younger-looking skin with a fresh glow.
Frowning is such an automatic movement that we do not even notice that we are doing it. Frown lines are those vertical lines, often referred to as “the 11’s”, that appear between your eyebrows as a result of frowning and other facial expressions, as well as ageing skin. Similar to forehead lines, as we age these frown lines become more prominent, causing a permanently stressed, intense, concerned or angry look – even when you are not angry or stressed at all.
Treatment with botox helps relax the muscles that involuntarily cause us to frown, leading to a more rested, approachable and fresh appearance. In some cases, additional fillers are recommended for the finishing touch.
Firming the skin with an optional additional treatment using skin boosters will give wrinkles less chance to reappear. This powerful skin rejuvenation therapy stimulates the biological functions of collagen and elastin in the skin, giving you a healthy, younger-looking skin with a fresh glow.
Eyebrows can droop as a result of gravity or a hyperactive eye sphincter muscle. A light treatment using a tiny amount of botox will relax the muscles pulling down your eyebrows, giving you back your fresh, youthful expression. The eyebrow lift can easily be done at the same time your frown lines or crow’s feet are treated.BOOK APPOINTMENT NOW FOR FREE, NO-OBLIGATION CONSULTATION WITH OUR DOCTOR
