Have you started to notice lines forming on your forehead? Brow lines are one of the most common cosmetic concerns among our patients. Vertical lines between the eyebrows and horizontal lines across the brow appear when you make facial expressions like frowning or raising your eyebrows in surprise. On younger, elastic skin, these lines go away as soon as you stop making these expressions. However, on older, thinning skin, you may find that the lines linger on your face.
Fortunately, Physician’s Center for Beauty offers several treatments that can help to smooth out your forehead and rejuvenate your appearance. Your options include:
The most effective way to reduce the appearance of lines on the forehead is with brow lift. By repositioning sagging tissue and muscles in the forehead and eliminating excess skin, the brow is tightened so that lines cannot settle indefinitely. Dr. Sean Maguire usually utilizes the endoscopic brow lift technique, which is a less invasive approach to forehead rejuvenation with shorter incisions and an easier recovery period.
This injectable treatment is ideal for minimizing lines at the top of the face. Botulinum type A can freeze targeted facial muscles so that they do not move when you make facial expressions. Immobilizing the muscles allows the existing lines on the face to gradually fade in the following days or weeks. Results last about three to four months, so periodic injections are necessary to maintain the results indefinitely.
Other Minimally Invasive Treatments
Our practice also has a few other skin treatments that improve mild to moderate lines on your brow. Microneedling and laser resurfacing treatments can help to stimulate new collagen production, which improves the fullness of the skin so that lines do not linger when facial expressions are made. Chemical peels are another option. Eliminating old skin cells and allowing newer, healthier cells to take their place can make your forehead appear smoother.
