Forehead wrinkles can be treated many different ways, discover different treatment options available to Charlotte, NC patients

Wrinkles can make people look older
Forehead wrinkles, and wrinkles in general, are a sign of aging that many Charlotte, NC patients want to be removed. Though wrinkles developing is a natural part of the aging process, there are many ways facial plastic surgeons can reduce or eliminate wrinkles on patients.

Forehead wrinkles are an example of dynamic wrinkles, which can often be treated with BOTOX
BOTOX, one of the most popular and well known methods of treating wrinkles, does not work on all types of wrinkles. Deep wrinkles, for example, are best treated with another type of treatment. Dynamic wrinkles, however, are a good candidate for treatment with BOTOX.

Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that form due to the repeated use of muscles. If you frown a lot, smile a lot, or laugh a lot, these types of wrinkles may start to form. Forehead wrinkles are often formed this way. Physicians will inject the solution directly into the muscle which relaxes it and makes it less able to move. This smoothes out the wrinkle for a temporary period of time as the muscle will eventually wake back up.

Forehead wrinkles could also be treated surgically
If injections are not an option, or you are looking for a permanent solution, your doctor may suggest a surgical wrinkle treatment. Facelifts are a way to tighten the skin and move it back up to its original position. Since the skin stretches to accommodate this, the wrinkles will smooth out.

Other surgical procedures will smooth out wrinkles as well, intentionally or unintentionally. Chin implants are known to reduce wrinkles across the face as the skin stretches to accommodate the implant. Eye lifts can also reduce wrinkles around the eyes along with helping to lift the eyelids.

Your doctor can determine the best treatment to help remove your forehead wrinkles
No one person is the same, so no individual’s treatment will be exactly the same as another person’s. What works for someone may not work for you. If you want to get rid of forehead wrinkles but aren’t sure which treatment option would work best for you, consult a facial plastic surgeon. At your consultation, they will discuss your goals with you, do an examination, and finally discuss what type of treatment would work best for you.
