Frown Lines/Forehead Wrinkles
Hedox Clinic specialise in treating wrinkles and signs of aging. We offer a range of treatments including anti-wrinkle injections (Botox), dermal filler for wrinkles and Profhilo for wrinkles.
As we age, our skin undergoes several stresses that can lead to forehead wrinkles. Factors such as sun exposure, poor skincare, a bad diet, and unhealthy habits like smoking can all take a toll on our skin. Additionally, the natural production of collagen and elastin – the proteins responsible for giving skin its youthful and plump appearance – slows down, causing the skin to sag and resulting in the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Furthermore, aging can also cause a loss of facial volume, which alters facial contours due to the reduction of fat, bone, and cartilage. This can lead to a sunken and drooping appearance of the skin.
Forehead lines, also known as “surprise lines,” are thin horizontal lines that appear on the forehead when the eyebrows are raised. Repeated movements of the muscles in the eyebrows and forehead can cause these lines to become more permanent and deeper over time. Additionally, lifestyle and environmental factors, combined with a loss of skin elasticity as we age, can worsen fine lines and wrinkles.
Book a complimentary consultation with Dr. Stephen Humble, our Consultant in Aesthetic Medicine, to discuss your skincare concerns and receive a personalized treatment plan. Anti-aging Botox injections are a popular treatment option that can provide a fresher, more relaxed appearance by relaxing the muscles. Dr. Stephen Humble can create a tailor-made treatment plan to address your individual concerns, and the treatment itself can be completed in just one clinic visit. Results typically last between three to six months, sometimes longer depending on your physiology.
Frown lines – the ’11s’
Frown lines, also known as “11s,” are the two lines that appear between the eyebrows. These lines develop due to thinning skin caused by changes in collagen and elastin production, sun damage, and repeated movements of the muscles in this area, such as frowning. However, there are effective ways to treat these lines both as a preventative measure and to banish them altogether. Botox treatment can freeze the muscle, relaxing the look of fine lines and preventing future wrinkling, making it a double whammy treatment.
