How to Get Rid of Fine Lines on the Forehead
Fine lines on the forehead are among the most-common visible signs of aging in the face, and they are often difficult to correct. By working with world-renowned facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Babak Azizzadeh, an individual can find a safe, effective way to treat fine lines on the forehead and other visible signs of aging in the face.
What Causes Fine Lines on the Forehead?
Common causes of fine lines on the forehead include:
- Facial Expressions: If a person frequently frowns, smiles or makes other facial expressions, he or she may be more prone than others to develop fine lines on the forehead.
- Sleep Position: People who sleep on their stomach keep their face against their pillow, which increases the risk of developing forehead wrinkles.
- Photoaging: Overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet radiation results in fine lines on the forehead and other skin damage.
- Smoking: Smoking constricts the blood vessels in the skin, reducing blood flow, preventing the secretion of collagen and elastin fibers and causing premature aging.
Many solutions are available to treat forehead wrinkles. With a personalized facial rejuvenation treatment performed by Dr. Azizzadeh, an individual can correct fine lines on the forehead via a surgical or non-surgical procedure.
How to Get Rid of Deep Forehead Wrinkles
Common treatments to address deep forehead wrinkles include:
1. Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing treats forehead wrinkles, along with scars, sun-damaged skin and other facial blemishes. During a laser skin resurfacing procedure, DOT Deka laser treatments resurface skin on the face and neck. The treatments enhance skin pigmentation, tone and texture, leading to a rejuvenated facial appearance.
Dr. Azizzadeh is a dual board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, and his goal is to ensure that his patient can realize the full benefits of a facial rejuvenation procedure. Before laser skin resurfacing is performed, Dr. Azizzadeh conducts a patient evaluation to determine if he or she is a good candidate for the procedure. If a patient qualifies for laser skin resurfacing, Dr. Azizzadeh then develops a custom treatment plan for this individual. Dr. Azizzadeh also explains how laser skin resurfacing is performed and helps his patient establish realistic treatment goals.
Microneedling, also referred to as collagen-induced therapy, stimulates collagen and elastin growth. The non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment involves the use of tiny needles that create invisible micro-perforations in the top layers of the skin to improve the skin’s elasticity and firmness. Microneedling also allows platelet-rich plasma or skincare products to reach the skin’s deepest layers to accelerate the process of repairing forehead wrinkles and other skin damage.
Microneedling offers a fast, simple way to treat facial blemishes. Dr. Azizzadeh requires only about 30 minutes to complete a microneedling procedure, and the treatment’s side effects are minimal. Patients achieve healthier-looking skin immediately after microneedling, with full results becoming transparent within a few months of treatment.
Botox is a popular cosmetic procedure, and it ranked as the top minimally invasive cosmetic procedure performed in the United States in 2018. Botox is an injectable prescription used to smooth fine lines on the forehead, along with correct crow’s feet, bunny lines (wrinkles on top of the nose) and frown lines. It helps patients achieve a harmonious facial appearance and preserve the face’s natural contours
Dr. Azizzadeh understands that there is no “standard” process to perform Botox, and he customizes each Botox treatment to his patient. Dr. Azizzadeh also educates his patients about all aspects of Botox. In some instances, Dr. Azizzadeh recommends a Botox treatment be performed in combination with face reshaping surgery or other facial rejuvenation procedures.
4. Brow Lift
For people who are exploring how to get rid of forehead wrinkles without Botox, a brow lift may be ideal. A brow lift repositions forehead muscles and tissues to eliminate sagging skin. It also corrects fine lines and wrinkles across the face, resulting in a revitalized facial appearance. Plus, brow lift patients often report increased self-confidence after treatment thanks in part to their rejuvenated facial appearance.
Dr. Azizzadeh performs each brow lift endoscopically to limit visible scarring after surgery. He uses a brow lift to help a patient simultaneously raise sagging eyebrows and reduce the appearance of deep furrows. This ensures that a brow lift patient can use the procedure to smooth out facial wrinkles and restore a youthful contour in the upper portion of the face.
5. Skincare Products
Skincare products like gentle cleansers and exfoliating polishes help improve skin health. The products feature bioengineered complexes and advanced formulations, and they can be incorporated into an individual’s skincare regimen, regardless of his or her age, ethnic background or skin issues.
The benefits of skincare products vary based on the individual, and Dr. Azizzadeh works closely with patients dealing with fine lines on the forehead to identify skincare products that can deliver the desired results. Dr. Azizzadeh provides skincare products as part of a supervised treatment program, and he tracks his patient’s progress. As a result, Dr. Azizzadeh helps a patient use skincare products to treat forehead wrinkles, along with acne, hyperpigmentation and other skin problems.
Identifying the ideal treatment for deep forehead wrinkles is challenging, but Dr. Azizzadeh delivers in-depth support. Dr. Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with comprehensive facial rejuvenation treatment expertise, and he provides his patients with insights into a wide range of treatments to address forehead lines. Dr. Azizzadeh even offers tips to help his patients prevent forehead wrinkles.
Can Forehead Wrinkles Go Away on Their Own?
There are many things that people can do to prevent forehead wrinkles, including:
1. Stay Hydrated
An individual who stays hydrated is less susceptible than others to dry skin that leads to forehead wrinkles. Research indicates that consuming 3,000 ml of water daily is sufficient for men, and consuming 2,200 ml of water daily is sufficient for women. If an individual spends an extended period of time exercising or outdoors in the sun, he or she should drink additional water as needed.
2. Apply Sun Protection
Using a daily moisturizer that has a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher helps reduce the risk of sun-damaged skin. Also, an individual can use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher if he or she plans to be out in the sun for several hours. In this scenario, an individual should plan to reapply sunscreen at least every few hours.
3. Maintain a Healthy Diet
There is a direct correlation between a person’s diet and the formation of forehead wrinkles and other visible signs of aging in the face. People who consume foods that contain high volumes of vitamin C and the linolenic acid omega-3 fatty acid can lower their risk of dry skin. Comparatively, individuals who consume foods high in fat and carbs are more prone than others to facial wrinkles and other skin damage.
4. Manage Stress
An individual who constantly worries may wrinkle his or her brow and develop forehead wrinkles. Fortunately, many solutions are available to help people manage stress. Practicing yoga, meditating and performing aromatherapy sometimes helps people lower their stress levels. Or, journaling, exercising or talking to a mental health counselor may help an individual cope with stress.
5. Avoid Smoking
In addition to increasing a person’s risk of lung cancer and emphysema, smoking is one of the leading causes of premature aging. People who avoid smoking can prevent forehead wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. At the same time, these individuals can improve their overall health.
Fine lines on the forehead are problematic, but Dr. Azizzadeh takes the guesswork out of correcting this issue.
