Once you get to a certain age you start asking, "How do I get rid of forehead wrinkles?". It is ok, we are all in the same boat at some point with our forehead wrinkles, whether it is your elevens or more prominent expression lines. Getting rid of forehead wrinkles will never be a permanent thing unless you go through life never showing expression, but there are proven ways to minimize the appearance of them as we age.
As mentioned there are treatments that will help with wrinkles. These are treatments such as microdermabrasion, dermaneedling, Fibroblast and chemical peels or clinical exfoliation. As technology advances, there will continue to be a multitude of ways to limit the appearance or reduce wrinkles. With the different treatments available is it important to determine how much downtime you are willing to deal with.
First, microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin using a diamond tip and suction, this treatment can reduce fine lines with a series of treatments. Microdermabrasion has no downtime but does require the use of sunscreen as your face will be sensitive for 48 hours post-treatment. Chemical peels, on the other hand, do include some downtime depending on the treatment plan that is set out and the level of chemical peel you choose. Again, chemical peels typically work best when battling fine lines opposed to those deep-set forehead wrinkles. Visit our blog on 'Which Chemical Peel is Right For You' to determine what level of chemical peel would be a good fit for your goals.
The two newer treatments available are dermaneedling and Fibroblast. With dermaneedling, you are getting a very effective treatment that is also best served as a series. It is typical to receive three treatments, but results can be seen after just one treatment. Downtime for microneedling can be two to four days depending on how fast your skin typically heals. Lastly, Fibroblast is best suited for those really set in hard to eliminate wrinkles. Downtime is limited to a few days where you may be swollen, and approximately 7-10 days where your skin needs to free and clear of makeup until the co2 plugs fall out. With both of these treatments, it is very important that you follow your esthetician's advice and post care instructions for best results.
So with a combination of treatments and a good skin care routine, you can keep your forehead wrinkles at bay for years to come.
