The forehead can be the first area of the face to show early signs of ageing. Horizontal forehead wrinkles and frown lines between the brows can project an aged, tired and even sad or angry appearance.
Forehead wrinkles, running across the forehead in horizontal lines, occur when raising our eyebrows to express emotions such as surprise, fear and happiness.

You will start to see results around 5 days after treatment, as your muscles gradually relax and your skin begins to smooth.
Full results of wrinkle relaxer activity usually peak around 2 weeks, after which you can enjoy the results for 3-4 months on average.
The main muscle responsible for elevating the brow is the frontalis muscle. With repetitive activity of the frontalis muscle, combined with sun damage, genetics and the natural depletion of your skin’s collagen and elastin over time, forehead lines can become a permanent fixture, giving a tired, worried and prematurely aged appearance.
Forehead line treatment using wrinkle relaxers is a simple and effective way to reduce horizontal forehead wrinkles. Wrinkle relaxing injections work by temporarily blocking the frontalis muscle from moving and thereby preventing wrinkles from forming.
Forehead wrinkles are often treated in combination with frown lines and crow’s feet wrinkles around the eyes. Strategically placed, wrinkle relaxers can also offer suitable patients a non-surgical brow lift.
Either by itself or as part of a tailored treatment plan, wrinkle relaxing treatment for forehead lines can refresh the look of the entire face and help to turn back the clock on premature ageing.
What to expect
Your Treatment experience
You will first meet with one of our cosmetic doctors, who will listen to your concerns, assess your facial anatomy and recommend a treatment plan that aligns with your aesthetic goals.
Most of the time, you can choose to have your forehead lines treatment straight after your consultation.
During the procedure, tiny amounts of wrinkle relaxer product are injected into the wrinkle-causing muscle of the forehead (frontalis). Because a very fine needle is used, you should not experience any pain and only some mild discomfort.
Our injectors target the muscles with precision to ensure natural-looking results. You will still be able to raise your eyebrows, just not to the same extent.
Forehead line treatment using muscle relaxers is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures. In experienced hands, the treatment has an excellent safety profile and produces consistently effective results. Common side effects are mild and temporary and include some redness, tenderness and possible bruising at the injection sites.
Muscle relaxing treatment has no downtime and you can go straight back to work or your social life immediately.
