As you age, your skin starts to show the classic physiological signs. This includes wrinkles, loss of elasticity, laxity, and your skin may appear more rough or textured.
Those forehead lines you get when you’re surprised? Those are dynamic wrinkles, which form over time and only appear when you move the muscles in your face.
The lines in your forehead that are always present, even when you’re not expressing? Those are static wrinkles. They form as a result of sun damage, genetics, a poor diet, or smoking in a process known as photoaging. Photoaging specifically refers to sun damage. Smoking accelerates physiological aging by increasing oxidative stress and breaking down collagen (similar to sun exposure).
So, how does Botox work to prevent and treat forehead wrinkles? Let’s get more into the science of it.
How to treat forehead wrinkles
To best explain how to prevent and treat wrinkles, it’s important to note the two main ways they form: physiological aging and photoaging.
The best treatment for forehead lines, which are a result of physiological aging, are wrinkle relaxers like Botox®, Xeomin®, Dysport®, Jeuveau®.
Botox works by gently relaxing the targeted muscles that have been repeatedly contracting. With the help of this treatment, you can relax the muscles in your forehead to treat dynamic lines and prevent them from becoming deep, static wrinkles.
If you work with a professional to find the right treatment plan for you and your facial movement goals, you will maintain a youthful appearance and keep your expressions. But when is the right time to start?
When to get Botox
Wrinkle prevention starts early and is a long-term goal, not a quick fix. If you want to maintain radiant skin and a healthy glow, routine wrinkle treatments can help you achieve your skincare goals.
If you’re young or blessed with tight, airbrushed skin, you may think Botox isn’t for you. But it’s perfect if you want to prevent dynamic lines from progressing to static wrinkles. Typically, to experience the full benefits of preventative Botox, you want to begin treatment between 25 to 30 years old.
It’s also a good option for you if you have deep forehead lines. Wrinkle relaxers are a great preventative treatment whether you have substantial or more subtle forehead lines. Although, the price differs dramatically depending on a variety of factors. Let’s discuss why that is.
The cost to treat forehead wrinkles with Botox
Typically, the cost of Botox is priced per unit. Wrinkle treatment prices also vary from city to city and studio to studio. It can range from a few hundred bucks up to a thousand dollars!
The reality is, the cost to treat forehead wrinkles with Botox is widely unknown until after your treatment is complete. All the hidden fees make saving and planning for this routine treatment stressful.
