Our patients ask us about the best ways to reduce forehead wrinkles. Here are the top five answers from the experts here at DermSurgery Associates:
1 – Over-the-counter topical retinoids and wrinkle creams
To treat fine lines around the mouth and eyes and reduce forehead wrinkles, your first option may be to try some of the many over-the-counter topical retinoids and wrinkle creams available on the market. Retinols, derived from Vitamin A, and other antioxidants and peptides may help minimize mild wrinkles and slow the progress of developing new ones.
2 – Prescription-strength topical creams
Alternatively, your DermSurgery Associates team might recommend a prescription-strength topical cream that contains a stronger concentration of the active ingredient than the over-the-counter version.
3 – Skin-resurfacing procedures
The skin-care experts at DermSurgery Associates specialize in advanced skin-resurfacing cosmetic procedures. Some of the procedures we trust to effectively treat fine lines, minimize crow’s feet and reduce forehead wrinkles include: laser and light therapy, chemical peels, and dermabrasion.
Fraxel® – Fraxel is a non-invasive laser light resurfacing treatment that penetrates deep into the skin to activate the production of collagen. It resurfaces your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin. Surrounding tissues remain intact, which supports quick healing.
Chemical Peels – Chemical peels can effectively reduce fine lines, wrinkles and even dark spots. They vary in strength, depending on your needs, and treatment can be completed in less than 30 minutes.
4 – Injectables and dermal fillers
Botox and fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are popular treatments for moderate lines around the lips, forehead and eyes.
Botox – Botox is injected with a small needle directly into the skin. It works by blocking impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles related to expression lines. As a result, it relaxes the muscles and allows the overlying skin to remains smooth and unwrinkled.
Juvederm – Juvederm is the ‘next generation’ of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. It offers a smooth, long-lasting treatment for facial wrinkles and folds.
Restylane – Restylane is a filler derived from a non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid. It restores fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds and can last up to six months.
5 – Surgical Procedures
