Forehead Wrinkles


It’s no fun seeing forehead wrinkles. They tend to be more prominent than any other wrinkles and they can make us look angry or stressed out.

These forehead wrinkles most commonly appear as vertical lines just above the nose. These are sometimes referred to as “the elevens”. These lines typically result from squinting, frowning, or worrying. Wrinkles on the forehead are primarily the result of continual muscle contraction and can become very deep over time.

Wrinkles on the Forehead

As with most wrinkles, many can appear with age, when the body produces less skin-enhancing estrogen. As a result, collagen production decreases and the strength of the elastin in your skin deteriorates.

The end result is that your skin loses its suppleness and firmness, causing wrinkles and fine lines to become more pronounced. And when elastin begins to lose its flexibility, your skin doesn’t “spring” back into place as quickly as it used to, increasing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. In other words, a loss of moisture and elasticity as you age makes them more prominent.

Get Rid of Forehead Wrinkles

So what are we to do?

We can take some preventative measures to lessen our natural tendencies that lead to forehead wrinkles.

For example, sun exposure is still one of the main sources of wrinkles, despite the continuous warnings we all hear. Harmful ultraviolet rays can damage your skin,and it can also dry you out and leave discoloured patches. Always make sure to wear sunscreen when going out on bright days, in all seasons.

And be sure to wear sunglasses to prevent squinting. Frequent squinting can lead to pronounced glabellar lines, the lines that run across your forehead over your eyes.


In addition to other negative health effects, smoking causes changes in the blood supply to your skin that accelerates the natural aging process. This contributes to wrinkle formation. So there’s another good reason to quit smoking.

Forehead wrinkles become more pronounced when your skin becomes drier. Keep yourself hydrated by drinking lots of water. And use a moisturizer to help keep prevent skin dryness.

The most effective in-office procedure for stopping your forehead wrinkles from getting worse is Botox. When injected into your skin, Botox blocks the nerve impulses that cause your facial muscles to contract, keeping lines from getting deeper.

Typically, the frown lines can be virtually eliminated with one of these non-surgical procedures, although maintenance treatments are generally required. Frequency of maintenance treatments will depend upon your treatment regimen and your body’s individual response to the treatment regimen, as well as the severity of your condition.
