The more expressive your face, the higher the likelihood of developing wrinkles that age the face prematurely. Aging gracefully doesn’t mean you have to live with your forehead wrinkles. Today, there are a range of cosmetic procedures designed to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles on even the most expressive of faces. If you’re looking to minimize the appearance of forehead wrinkles while still maintaining a natural “aging gracefully” appearance, dermal fillers are the way to go. Here’s what you need to know.
Fillers for forehead lines and wrinkles
Most forehead lines and wrinkles are caused by the raising and lowering of the brow muscles, which particularly expressive people do many many times a day. The wrinkles that appear while you’re actively moving those muscles are called “dynamic wrinkles.” Botox and other cosmetic injectables containing botulinum type A work to render the muscles inactive. But if they’re not caught in time, as the skin begins to lose fat and elasticity, those repeated facial movements will eventually become etched into the skin even when you’re not actively making an expression. Once this happens, the wrinkles have become “static wrinkles,” which are best treated with dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are injectable gel formulas that fill in forehead lines and wrinkles, providing instant volume and restoring youthful radiance. At San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic, we offer a number of different dermal fillers to produce gorgeous results without need for surgery.
The best dermal fillers for forehead lines and wrinkles
Most of the dermal fillers proven most effective on facial lines and wrinkles contain hyaluronic acid (HA) as their main ingredient. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that helps keep the skin supple and the joints and eyes lubricated. It also plays an important role in the wound healing process. Hyaluronic acid molecules attract water molecules. In fact, HA can hold up to 1000x its weight in water. When used in dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid draws moisture to the area, plumping up the skin and diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Some of the best hyaluronic acid fillers include: JUVEDERM(R), JUVEDERM(R) VOLUMA, and RESTYLANE(R).
RADIESSE(R) is another great filler for forehead lines and wrinkles, but it works a little differently than those containing hyaluronic acid. The key ingredient in RADIESSE(R) is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), the same mineral composition found in teeth and bone. The formula provides immediate contouring while theCaHA microspheres begin stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin. As the gel barrier breaks down, the collagen and elastin fill in the treated area, renewing the skin’s structure and smoothing out wrinkles. RADIESSE(R) works beautifully on deeper forehead wrinkles, including those between the brows.
