The main cause of forehead lines is a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. These proteins are responsible for our skin’s elasticity, but production drops as we age. Good preventative action includes minimising stress, using an SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays all year round, avoiding smoking, drinking plenty of water and following a good skincare routine, especially ensuring the use of a good moisturiser.
At mp clinic we offer the most advanced technology and treatments to target forehead lines, without the need for invasive surgery. We pride ourselves on achieving a no-trace face and offer a private consultation with a medical practitioner, highly personalised plan and post-treatment review.
TREATMENTS FOR FOREHEAD LINES
We offer a number of treatment options to lessen the appearance of forehead lines. To choose the best plan for natural looking yet noticeable results, we highly recommend you attend an in-depth, no obligation consultation with a nurse or doctor, During your consultation your medical practitioner will discuss:
For fine lines, a chemical formula can be applied to the face, which gradually allows the upper layers of aged skin to peel away. It is harmless and, certainly for the milder peels, painless. Deeper peels can cause a slight burning sensation, a bit like sunburn. But with our soothing pre and post-application creams, any discomfort is minimised.
The peels leave a smoother complexion, with forehead lines being reduced or eliminated entirely. There are different strengths of Medical Grade Peels depending on the depth of your forehead lines. Results and downtime vary according to the type of peel you and your skincare professional choose.
For deeper, more established forehead lines, Dermal Fillers may be considered. With near immediate results (they develop from 7 days following treatment) lasting up to 12 months, treatment involves injecting a medically developed solution under the skin with a fine needle to plump and fill lines and grooves. We use a dermal filler which contains Hyaluronic Acid to replace the naturally existing substance in your skin that repairs damaged tissue
