Why do I have lines on forehead?
There are more than 50 muscles on our face. This allows us to express a variety of emotions. Amongst these muscle groups, perhaps the most active is frontalis, the muscle that spans across our forehead. As such, most people start the get outwardly signs of this active muscle in the form of long lines and wrinkles. In some, these lines are only evident during active movement. Inevitably, though these muscles get etched in over time, permanently claiming the presence on your forehead.
How can I avoid getting etched in lines on my forehead?
The one sure way to prevent, or at least limit the progression of movement lines to permanent lines is the use of low dose Botox. With just few injections, Botox can limit the use of these muscles, and also prevent hypertrophy. This way, you can still maintain a natural look, and help fight the progression to deep, permanent lines.
Will chemical peels help lines on my forehead?
Chemical peels are useful in treating textural and color irregularities. They will not treat deeplines, but the finelines on the forehead (that form from aging and sun exposure, not from movement) may respond to a series of chemical peels.
Is it too late if I have deep forehead lines already etched in?
No. The treatment will be a bit more long term, though. With higher doses of Botox, and repeated treatments, the hypertrophied muscle can be thinned out, allowing for major improvement in deep lines.
