What causes forehead wrinkles?
Wrinkles and lines on the forehead can be caused a by a range of factors, including:
Expressions and facial movement – as you smile or frown, your facial muscles pull the skin into a new position. But as we age, the skin loses collagen and elastin, and this has a negative impact on the skins ability to bounce back into position. As a result, lines and wrinkles can begin to form.
Thinning skin – part of the reason for forehead lines developing is also thinning skin. As the skin loses condition, and becomes thinner and drier, any lines or winkles will become instantly more pronounced and noticeable.
UV exposure – harmful UV rays can damage the skin, and this includes causing lines and wrinkles. In the sun, your skin can become weathered, and this can emphasize wrinkles as well as cause them.
Different options that can reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles
To reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles, frown lines, or other creases, there are a number of different options to consider. These include:
- Facial creams and products – facial creams that have peptides, hyaluronic acid, and even vitamin C can be useful for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These products will be absorbed by the skin, and they contain vital nutrients that the skin needs to function effectively. By restoring these, you can help to reduce the appearance of forehead lines.
- Moisturiser – dry skin is generally in poor condition, and this can lead to more pronounced lines and wrinkles across the forehead. Applying moisturizer can help to re-hydrate your skin, reducing the appearance of forehead wrinkles.
- Chemical peels – a chemical peel can be a great option. This involves applying a layer of a slightly acidic substance to the face, and then removing this, providing a deep level of exfoliation for your skin. This can remove old and dead skin cells, and replace these with new ones. As a result of this process, any lines or wrinkles across the forehead will become much less noticeable leaving you looking and feeling younger.
- Anti-wrinkle treatments – specific anti-wrinkle treatments can be injected straight into the problematic areas, relaxing the facial muscles. This allows the skin to reset, smoothing lines and wrinkles across the forehead. Not only can this smooth and reduce existing lines and wrinkles, but these treatments can also help to prevent further lines from developing.
