Treatments Not Recommended
Name Description
ArteFill Avoid using a long lasting filler like Artefill in the forehead. The movement of the forehead makes it more likely the filler will be dislodged.
Silikon 1000 Because it is a permanent filler, Silikon 1000 should not be used in the forehead.
AHA peel Because it is a light peel, the AHA peel is usually not strong enough to treat forehead wrinkles.
BHA peel Mild skin peels, like AHA and BHA peels , are typically not strong enough to affect forehead wrinkles.

Treatment options: You can always slather some retinoid creams on your wrinkles - this will increase collagen turnover and refresh the appearance of your forehead skin, though it won't make wrinkles disappear.

The best injectable treatment for forehead wrinkles is a toxin that will weaken the muscles that cause the lines to appear - which means either Dysport or Botox. Dysport is faster-acting, taking hold within 24 hours, while Botox can take up to three days to take effect. No procedure provides a permanent solution, however. A regimen of injections will be required in order to keep the creases at bay.

Surgical treatments: Brow lifts are intended to remove deep forehead wrinkles for patients between 40 and 70 years old, though premature aging may prompt younger individuals to seek the surgery. Although the results last significantly longer than Botox, a brow lift will cost $5,000 to $7,000 - you may find yourself worrying about your budget instead of your worry lines. The procedure is not covered by insurance.
