Forehead Lines

< Problem Areas

Forehead Lines

Forehead lines refer to the horizontal lines that appear across the forehead when someone raises their eyebrows.

They are caused by the contraction of a muscle known as frontalis. At first these lines only appear during eyebrow raising and disappear at rest but eventually will be noticeable all the time. Some people tend to habitually raise their eyebrows when talking and often these people will notice permanent lines appearing at a young age.

Some people will have two or three dominant lines across the forehead where as other individuals may have more of a corrugation of the forehead when they raise their eyebrows and may have multiple finer lines. An experienced practitioner will recognise the difference between these two types of forehead lines and tailor treatment to the individual.


The lines in the forehead can be softened by stopping the frontalis muscle contracting so strongly. This involves the use of anti-wrinkle injections. The product is injected into the muscle through a fine needle and attach to the nerve endings supplying the muscle and relax it.  Results can be seen a few days after treatment but the full effect can take 10-14 days.

Treatment of forehead lines can also help break the habit of chronic eyebrow raising and help prevent these lines deepening. Forehead lines can be a difficult area to treat and a compromise must be made between line reduction whilst maintaining a natural look and some degree of normal muscle function. If this area is over treated it can leave an unnatural, smooth, shiny forehead as well as a  heavy feeling and lowering or flattening of the eyebrows. It is generally better to use smaller doses of product and return for treatment more regularly.

Forehead treatment is very popular and is generally highly successful. However, care must be taken to find a skilled injector that is available for follow up as sometimes small extra doses following treatment may be required to give the optimum results. It is always better to under treat and return for further injections rather than risk over treatment and a poor aesthetic result.

Longevity / Treatment Regime

A single treatment will generally last 2 to 3 months. This varies between individuals and does depend somewhat on how much product is injected.  Forehead lines tend to be treated conservatively so results may not last as long as other areas treated with anti-wrinkle injections.  It is generally better to have less product injected in this area and return for treatment regularly to ensure a natural look and feel is maintained.
