If there’s one thing that comes with age— wisdom hopefully included— it’s the onset of those nasty forehead wrinkles. And although aging is a beautiful process, it can also be painful for many individuals as well. If you have started to notice that you are getting more forehead wrinkles than you know what to deal with, try these solutions.
Botox is one of the most popular things on the cosmetic market. As an injectable that essentially paralyzes the muscles in the forehead, causing them to relax, Botox gives patients the temporary appearance of a smoother forehead without all of those wrinkles. Typically administered every 3-4 months, depending on the patient, Botox offers patients a temporary fix to an otherwise difficult physical problem.
As another way to get rid of your forehead wrinkles, chemical peels are a great way to help encourage the body’s natural production of collagen. By applying a chemical agent like alpha hydroxy acids, the chemical works to get rid of the top few layers of skin on your face, in turn encouraging the production of new skin and new collagen— leaving you with a smoother looking complexion and the reduced appearance of forehead wrinkles.
Practice Good Skin Care
In order to prevent yourself from getting more of those nasty forehead wrinkles, try practicing good skin care techniques. For instance, make sure that you never leave the house during daylight hours without a sunscreen on. As the leading culprit of aging skin, the sun works to decrease your skin’s natural elasticity and smoothness. Additionally, try using anti-agin skincare products that contain ingredients like Retinol in them. Retinol is a topical medication that works to encourage your body’s natural production of collagen.
