Will BOTOX® Smooth Out Deep Forehead Wrinkles?
As we enter our 30s and 40s, most of us begin to notice some early signs of aging, including facial lines and wrinkles. One of the first and most noticeable areas to develop lines is often the forehead, which can make a person look old, tired, or angry – even when they’re not! Fortunately, cosmetic injectables offer a fantastic opportunity to smooth out forehead lines and restore a fresher and more youthful look. Board-certified physician Dr. Christy Kirkendol Watson (aka Dr. Christy) and the expert team at Body Bar MD take great pride in helping men and women feel comfortable and confident in their own skin once again with a wide array of facial rejuvenation and anti-aging treatments in Carmel and Terre Haute, IN. Learn more about BOTOX injections, one of the most popular and effective options for getting rid of forehead wrinkles, and find out whether it may be right for you.
What causes deep wrinkles on the forehead?
If you’re like most men and women, some of the earliest lines and wrinkles you noticed likely appeared on your forehead. While Crow’s feet, smile lines, and other wrinkles often appear around the same time, forehead lines are often deeper, longer, and more noticeable overall. These frustrating lines on the forehead are considered dynamic wrinkles, meaning they are primarily caused by repetitive muscle movements over the years. Raising your eyebrows, furrowing your brow, and making other facial expressions cause the muscles to contract and create a line on the skin’s surface above.
Does BOTOX help deep forehead lines?
Without a doubt, one of the best options for smoothing out dynamic lines on the forehead is BOTOX. This injectable wrinkle relaxer contains a specialized neurotoxin agent that temporarily prevents the muscle from contracting. As the muscle relaxes, patients will notice a dramatic improvement in their forehead lines. In addition to smoothing out forehead lines, BOTOX is also a fantastic solution for reducing signs of aging elsewhere on the face. Most often, BOTOX is used to treat the following concerns:
- Brow lines
- Forehead lines
- “11” lines
- Crow’s feet
- Lines and wrinkles around the eyes
- Lines around the nose
- Lip lines
- Smile lines
- Frown lines
During your initial consultation for BOTOX in Terre Haute or Carmel, Dr. Christy will thoroughly evaluate and discuss your areas of concern and determine whether BOTOX is right for you. Oftentimes, a combination of injectable treatments – such as BOTOX and JUVÉDERM® – is recommended to smooth wrinkles, fill lines, and restore lost volume.
How long does it take to see BOTOX results?
Unlike injectable dermal fillers, BOTOX does not provide almost instantly visible results. Instead, patients will begin to notice a smoother look after about 3 – 4 days, with the final effects of BOTOX often taking around 7 – 10 days to develop.
How long does BOTOX last?
Generally speaking, most patients are able to enjoy the results of BOTOX injections for about 3 – 4 months before a touch-up or maintenance treatment is needed. This may vary somewhat from patient to patient depending on where the BOTOX was injected, how many units were used, how the patient’s body responds to BOTOX, and other factors. Many patients report that after several rounds of BOTOX treatment, their results begin to last longer and longer each time.
