Forehead wrinkles can have a different meaning for men and women. Not every man is bothered about the wrinkles on their forehead, in fact, those wrinkles may appear to add wisdom and maturity. On the contrary, one single forehead wrinkle is enough for women to feel conscious as these are the obvious sign of aging. So, enough talking now, what can we get rid of them or reduce them?
What is forehead wrinkles
Forehead wrinkles are the lines across the forehead, its formation is hugely related to our facial expression. It is caused by the action (contraction) of the muscles on the forehead and eyebrows when we speak or raise eyebrows or make an expression. The muscle contraction will cause the formation of lines over time.
The formation of forehead wrinkles is mainly in response to the repetitive facial expression. We raise our eyebrows unconsciously and naturally when we speak or make facial expressions. Having this repetitive action for a long time will reduce the muscle ability to rebound and heal, and reduce the skin’s elasticity. If you frequently raise your eyebrows, the skin at the forehead is moved by the muscle contraction and “remember” how it is folded, you may then notice lines which are stubborn wrinkles are beginning to develop.
The activity of frontal muscle is the key contribution of the formation of forehead wrinkles. The central fibres of the frontal muscle are connected with the eyebrow depressor muscle, corrugator muscle and orbicularis oculi muscle. Action of any of these muscles will cause the frontal muscle to contract. Over time, lines/folds are developed across the fibres of the frontal muscle which are called dynamic forehead wrinkles. When we get older, our skin becomes looser and less elastic due to the loss of support from fat, collagen, muscle and bone cells. Skin also becomes sagging which will deepen the wrinkle and turn wrinkles from dynamic into static. On the other hand, external factors such as photochemical damage, lifestyle and eating habits can speed up the aging process. Coupled with gravity, the skin experiences multiple stress and shows signs of aging, resulting in deeper forehead wrinkles. In short, the formation of forehead wrinkles is a result combining muscle contraction, loosen skin, aging, loss of tissue and gravity.
Mostly appear as lines across the forehead, uncommonly appear as vertical lines. Dynamic lines will turn into static lines as we age.
Not limited to elderly. Young people can develop deep forehead wrinkles. People who frequently raise eyebrows and frown.
Ai Beauty Clinic offers two effective treatments to reduce dynamic and static forehead wrinkles.
A. Wrinkles Removal by Botulinum Toxin
What is it?
Botulinum toxin is a protein that can block the signal communication between nerves and muscles, and hence paralyses/relaxes the muscles temporarily, resulting in releasing the muscles pressure at the nasolabial folds and smoothing the folds. It is only suitable for eliminating dynamic wrinkles.
How does it work?
Botulinum toxin can suppress the eyebrow raising action by blocking the signal communication between nerves and muscles. The resulting relaxed frontal muscle will then no longer pose any squeezing action onto the skin at the forehead and reduce the forehead wrinkles.

What is Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler:
Hyaluronic acid (HA), also known as hyaluronate, is naturally found in our tissues and cells. In aesthetic treatments, hyaluronic acid can act as a filler and be injected into the dermis to add volume to the areas that have wrinkles/depressions or plump up certain areas such as lips, cheeks, nose bridge and chin. The injected hyaluronic acid will smoothen and fill lines and wrinkles, and add volume to the face naturally. As hyaluronic acid can be metabolised by our body naturally and will not remain in the body, therefore, there are no side effects of injecting hyaluronic acid. Also, if you are satisfied with the result, it is safe to have repeated courses of hyaluronic acid injection for long term results.
How does it work:
Hyaluronic acid dermal filler can improve deep forehead wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid solution and its agent solution is injected into the skin at the forehead. The hyaluronic acid molecules in the skin will add volume and support the skin structure, resulting in smoothing the wrinkles and lines. This treatment is only suitable for eliminating static forehead wrinkles.
