Forehead Lines

Introduction to Forehead Lines

The lines on the forehead are caused by frontalis muscle which is a muscle of facial expression. The muscle contracts to express surprise. 

Unwanted activity of the forhead muscle causes wrinkles or permanent lines on the forehead which makes one look old and anxious. A smooth forehead conveys calm and a composed personality.

Factors causing Forehead lines

Aging : During the natural process of aging the skin gradually looses collagen and elastin fibres which give strength elasticity and tightness to the skin. The skin gradually thins out. The muscle activity is more visibily through the skin.

Genetic makeup : shape and position of various parts of the face is also linked to our genetic traits. like the shape of the nose, eye color, eyebrows, lips etc.

Muscle Activity : Aging of the skin along with muscle activity creates various wrinkles and distortion of the youthful anatomy.

Smoking : smoking accelarates the natural aging process by restricting the blood flow to the skin. this increased aging of the skin as decreased collagen and elastin fibres resulting in loose wrinkles skin.

Types of wrinkles

Dynamic : These appear only when the muscle moves to express an emotion. These are treated with Botox anti-wrinkle injection treatment which prevents the muscles from contracting.

Static : These are permanent wrinkles that stay even at rest and are exaggerated when the muscle moves to express an emotion. These are treated by a multimodality approach. Botox anti-wrinkle therapy is instituted to prevent muscle contraction which prevents exaggeration. and Fillers injections or Fat Fill Procedure is done to correct volume loss and smoothen out the forehead skin.
