What causes forehead wrinkles to form, and can they be reduced with a forehead lift?

shutterstock 581282791Many men and women are extremely aware of the signs of aging on their face. The formation of fine lines and wrinkles can negatively affect one’s appearance, making them appear much older than they really are. But what causes these lines to form, and how can they be addressed? Seattle, WA area patients are welcome to book an appointment at The Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery to speak to Dr. Wayne Larrabee about their options for treatment. 

What cause forehead wrinkles to develop? 

The formation of forehead wrinkles is often caused by tension in the muscles on the upper face. Whenever a facial expression is made with the muscles, it over time can result in the formation of wrinkles and folds. This is due to the natural loss of collagen and elastin in the skin after the age of 30, which also contributes to skin laxity. Forehead wrinkles may be successfully addressed with Botox injections, which inhibit the muscles of the face and can smooth away these mild to moderate wrinkles. However, some patients will need plastic surgery to address severe forehead wrinkles. 

When should I consider a facelift? 

It is always best to consider nonsurgical solutions for one’s appearance whenever possible. This is why Dr. Wayne Larrabee will often suggest cosmetic injectables for patients to consider instead before undergoing expensive and invasive surgical procedures. Patients who cannot maintain the results they desire with Botox will want to think about the benefits of plastic surgery and how it can improve their appearance. For forehead wrinkles, a brow lift is more targeted than a full facelift.
