Whether they're caused by concern, confusion, or years of overexpressing your emotions, the wrinkles that appear on your brow can greatly impact your sense of confidence. Many people are afraid to frown or smile because they don't want lines to appear on their skin.
Lines on the forehead are typically caused by the repeated contraction of muscles underneath the skin. As you age, your body stops producing important structural components that keep your skin taught and smooth. This deterioration of the skin causes pre-existing forehead lines to become more apparent.
Aesthetic treatments in the forehead area work to reduce these lines by numbing the muscles responsible for their creation. Most forehead treatments are neurotoxins, which means they work by providing a mild and temporary paralytic effect. Treatments are typically effective for three to six months at a time; after this point, the area will require another injection to maintain smoothness.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the original aesthetic neurotoxin and the long-standing industry leader. BOTOX® is known for being incredibly effective at reducing forehead wrinkles while still allowing reasonable freedom of facial expression. BOTOX® can be used on frown lines, furrowed brows, crow’s feet, and other wrinkles in the general area of the forehead and eyes.
BOTOX® takes effect within two days and tends to last for four to six months. The results of BOTOX® Cosmetic depend entirely on the specialist who administers the injection, which is why you should only trust your BOTOX® treatment to a true professional. The right person will be able to give you high-end, comfortable, and natural-looking results.
Dysport® is a targeted aesthetic treatment that is meant to reduce the deep furrows that can appear in the center of your brow. This area is particularly susceptible to repeated muscle contractions and can benefit greatly from the mild numbing effect that Dysport® provides.
When used on the face, Dysport® is typically administered as a series of five injections across the brow line. The effects are noticeable within a few days, and the results should last for at least five months.
These two treatments have been designed to numb your forehead muscles and prevent large, noticeable lines from appearing. Your specialist will help you decide whether BOTOX® or Dysport® is the right choice for your facial aesthetics. Contact us to schedule an appointment and discuss the details of your treatment plan.
