How do Botox anti-wrinkle treatments work?
Dynamic movements of the face, for instance, each time we raise our eyebrows the muscles of our forehead contract to cause facial lines or “wrinkles” . Injections work by blocking muscle contractions from occurring and this means that the muscle relaxes, consequently smoothing out the wrinkles.

When do forehead lines start to appear?
You might begin to notice early forehead lines in your late twenties and early thirties as they faintly start to become noticeable. As time goes on, these lines will deepen and become increasingly prominent until they are visible even when you are not raising your eyebrows or frowning. Ageing often makes them much more visible, which people may feel self-conscious about, and therefore benefit from anti-wrinkle injections.
What is the best way to get rid of forehead lines?
The most suitable way of treating forehead lines and wrinkles is determined by the cause of the lines you have. Lines that are caused by muscle movement, like smiling, squinting, or frowning, are called dynamic lines. Lines that are present all the time, even when you are not moving your facial muscles are known as static lines. Dynamic lines are normally treated using anti-wrinkle injections that work by relaxing the muscles in the face. Static lines are typically treated using procedures designed to strip back layers of damaged skin such as skin peels.

The main solution and most effective method for treating these lines is with anti-wrinkle injections.
