The horizontal lines that appear in the forehead, sometimes called worry lines or expression lines, can be caused by a number of issues. These lines creases appear in the forehead when we make certain facial expressions, though as we age and our skin loses its elasticity and the underlying support in the skin matrix is weakened, then these lines start to linger until they become permanent. Though wrinkles are part of the natural process of aging, meaning it is likely that everyone will get wrinkles eventually, there are some things that exacerbate their appearance or bring them on prematurely. Genetics, sun exposure, environmental factors such as pollutants and lifestyle choices such as smoking, diet, and adequate sleep, can also all affect the development of wrinkles in the skin.
There are a few treatment options available to individuals seeking to prevent or correct forehead lines. Prevention is a huge part of keeping the skin looking younger, and it is always easier to prevent wrinkles from occurring than it is to make them disappear. A strict sun-care regimen, the use of a good moisturizer, staying hydrated, eating a healthy diet, and avoiding smoking are all great ways to keep the skin looking healthy. However, wrinkles are inevitable, and for some people it is too late for prevention. This is when many patients turn to dermal filler treatment, which involves injecting a gel substance into the dermis in order to smooth out wrinkles and lines. Some of the most popular types of dermal filler are hyaluronic acid fillers, and the most popular among them is Juvederm. Juvederm products provide natural-looking results and lasting effects.
Juvederm is popular for its lasting effects, with results visible for up to a year. However, results vary by patient and depend on a number of factors. The age of the patient and the patient’s lifestyle are both factor into how long the results will be noticeable. As Juvederm is made of the naturally occurring substance hyaluronic acid, the dermal filler implant is metabolized by the body over time. Additionally, the area of treatment and the severity of correction will also affect the duration of results, as does the skill of the medical practitioner who injected the filler. Injection technique can also contribute to how long the results are visible, which is why it is important to be injected by a medical professional with knowledge and experience of dermal fillers.
Juvederm is a safe and effective treatment to improve the appearance of forehead wrinkles. It is very popular among dermatologists and plastic surgeons. However, it is important that it is only administered by licensed medical practitioners who have discussed the patient’s medical history prior to injection. Juvederm should not be used to treat patients with a history of severe allergies or severe allergic reactions to hyaluronic acid or lidocaine. It should also never be used on patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding. There are some mild temporary side effects associated with Juvederm, including swelling, bruising, itching, and pain in the injection area, though this will typically resolved themselves within a few weeks of treatment.
