Find out on this page which treatment methods I, as a proven specialist in the field of wrinkle treatment, use in my practice in Munich to soften and remove wrinkles on the forehead.
How do forehead wrinkles develop and differ?
Forehead wrinkles run horizontally and can have a plain or even undulating form. As part of the natural mimic line forehead wrinkles form as a consequence of:
- the natural muscle contraction when lifting the eyebrows
- a decrease of endogenous collagen production
- a weakened connective tissues
- less elasticity and
- overall sagging and thinner skin will be formed.
Even though the term “thinking wrinkles” is associated with a strong mental activity and hence with something positive it is also true that forehead wrinkles affect a positive perception of the own body and appearance. The deeper these “thinking wrinkles” have already dug into your skin the less attractive you feel.
It is of little consolation that wrinkles on the forehead, the neck or in the face a visible witnesses of the natural aging process of the skin.
Therefore, it is good to know that there are numerous treatments to get rid of unpleasant wrinkles on the forehead in the long term.
How to treat forehead wrinkles
Depending on the depth of the wrinkles and on the structure of the skin there are several approaches to treat forehead wrinkles.
Besides well-known methods like hyaluronic acid or Botulinumtoxin injections or the deployment of a laser, the insertion of Meso Threads promises instantaneously visible results. As a minimally invasive alternative to other common procedures Meso threads tackle the roots of the forehead-wrinkles problem in order to smooth-up your thinking wrinkles in a sustainable way.
Find the following forehead wrinkle treatments in my wide range of treatments which I as a specialist for plastic and aesthetic surgery offer in my modern practice in Munich:
Use of meso threads against forehead wrinkles
When using Meso Threads against forehead wrinkles we insert collagen-forming Polydioxanon (PDO), Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) or Polycaprolactone (PCL) threads available in different strength and shape.
All Meso threads completely dissolve by themselves after six to eight months of their insertion and are 100 % biodegradable. They give back the natural elasticity to the skin by gently tightening the connective tissue and by sustainably reactivating the skin structure for a natural smoothing of wrinkles from the inside.
Forehead wrinkle treatment with meso threads
– The insertion is carried out under selective anaesthesia
– The intervention takes about 20 -30 Minutes – completely without surgery
I will advise you individually in a personal appointment. I look forward to meeting you!
Forehead wrinkles and laser
Deploying a fractional laser for the treatment of forehead wrinkles can lead to good results primarily if the expression lines haven’t still dug to deep into your skin. The laser removes the upper skin levels (“dermabrasion”). Anyhow it can’t reach deeper skin layers. As a result deeper forehead wrinkles can, if at all, only be smoothened but not be eliminated.
As for the side effects of the deployment of a laser against forehead wrinkles there may occur light or stronger skin reddening and/or light swellings on or around the treated skin area(s) which normally subside after a short time.
As soon as cells of the abraded skin layer have renewed, i.e. in the course of one to two month after the intervention, the laser treatment unfolds its full effect which can last a couple of month or even longer.
Injecting forehead wrinkles with hyaluronic acid or botulinum toxin
Injection of hyaluron acid against forehead wrinkles
When injecting body’s own hyaluronic acid the substance is used as a filling material to upholster and smoothen-up the skin. Hyaluronic acid additionally stimulates the production of moisturising collagen. This for ist turn gives back new elasticity and more volume to the skin.
A disadvantage of the injection of hyaluronic acid is that to treat deeper wrinkles you have to calculate with several interventions at an interval of a few weeks.
If a high dose of hyaluronic acid is injected under the already thin skin on the forehead clearly visible hyaluronic-acid-bumps can form.
But even under optimal circumstances of an injection of hyaluronic acid against forehead wrinkles there may occur temporary reddening, swellings and bruises on and around the treated areas can occur which normally subside after a short time. There can also appear possible allergenic effects.
The resulting smoothened-up and upholstering effect can last up to three years.
Injection of Botulinumtoxin against forehead wrinkles
The Injection of Botulinumtoxin against forehead wrinkles aims to reduce the activity of the muscles that are responsible for the eyebrow lifting. This results in a smoothing of wrinkles, an effect that lasts approx. three to six months.
During this period of efficacy the natural facial expressions are at least restricted or even slightly impaired which can lead to an unnatural or even mask-like look.
I am looking forward to consult you personally and discuss in detail the pros and cons of the treatment of forehead wrinkles with hyaluronic acid or nerve toxin injections.
Micro needling for forehead wrinkles
During a Micro Needling treatment numerous vibrating and micro needles with of between 0,2 and 1,5 millimetres which are attached at a medical dermaroller penetrate the skin. This stimulates the blood circulation and the nourishment of the skin. In addition, the penetrating micro needles stimulate the production of body’s own collagen.
Micro Needling is most suitable if the shape and structure of the wrinkles isn’t yet that pronounced.
The deeper the wrinkles are the longer the micro needles have to be to obtain good results.
As during this treatment of forehead wrinkles the micro needles inflict numerous little wounds on the skin there will occur swellings and reddening around the treated areas which normally subside after a short time.
Additionally there will be a secretion of wound fluid which should normally subside after approx one week.
Furthermore it should be mentioned that depending of the characteristics and depth of the forehead wrinkles several micro needling treatments might be necessary to obtain the desired effect.
I am looking forward to consult you personally on how and in which form a Micro-Needling treatment could be worthwhile for you.
Chemical peelings against forehead wrinkles
The deployment of chemical peelings is one of a variety of treatments of superficial as well as of deeper forehead wrinkles. As for creases on the forehead a variant can be the peeling with use of fruit acid. During this procedure and similar to the dermabrasion the upper layer of the skin is removed.
As for the treatment of deeper thinking wrinkles chemical peelings like phenol peeling or peeling with trichloroacetic acid (TCA) are used. Medium deep and deeper skin layers are abraded which in turn leads to a longer recovering time of even a few weeks, regular wound care included.
In turn phenol or TCA peelings are normally applied just once and the effect can last even a few years.
Chemical peelings should never be applied without the support of a specialist for plastic and aesthetic surgery.
How to prevent forehead wrinkles?
Even if forehead wrinkles a a result of the natural aging process of the skin as well as of our natural mimic expressions and of the contraction of the corresponding muscles there are various tips and tricks that help to prevent or at least to slow down the forming and deepening of forehead wrinkles .
Summary forehead wrinkles treatment
In summary, it can be said that the treatment methods for forehead wrinkles are just as varied as the respective formation and expression of individual thinking wrinkles.
All treatment methods have their justification and, depending on the type and depth of the forehead wrinkles, can also deliver the desired results - over a longer period of time and sometimes with only a few treatments.
Likewise, however, there are risks, side effects and post-treatment restrictions (i.e. recovery and downtime) with most treatment methods.
Which ones exactly are, which treatment method is best in your individual case and how we can also give your skin and forehead natural resilience, a fresh appearance and more volume again - as a proven specialist in the field of wrinkle smoothing, I will be happy to advise you on this in detail during an initial personal consultation in my practice in Munich!
