Forehead wrinkles - Botox, Active Fx, Portrait Plasma

February 15, 2008
People always say I look angry or worried because I have wrinkles on my forehead. What wrinkle treatments will get rid of these forehead lines?

Botox, Botox, Botox!

Its still the best treatment out there for forehead lines. These lines are called expression lines - they are mostly caused by you raising your eyebrows over many years. As the muscles contract, they move the skin with them and crease the skin over time. Botox relaxes these muscles and lessens the intensity of these movements. Done properly, Botox relaxes the forehead without paralysis. The patient should always be able to move their face and the result should always be a natural appearance.

The other thing that helps is a resurfacing laser for the fine lines. Active Fx seems to do a good job. That's the one I have and I like it quite a bit. Other people like the Portrait plasma device. Fraxel is not intense enough for fine lines in my experience.

Microdermabrasion helps, but only when done regularly over a long period of time. Even then, it is a subtle change. Microderm is better for maintenance and skin health.
