Forehead Lines treatment In Norwich
As the name suggests, forehead lines are, quite literally, prominent lines stretching across the entire width of the forehead. Commonly arising through age and significantly proven to get worse with increased expression of emotion, forehead lines can make you look sad, angry, stressed or tired even if you’re experiencing none of these feelings!
What can you do about forehead lines?
Luckily, forehead lines respond extremely well to treatment. The muscles causing these lines will imminently relax, resulting in a smoother, like-free appearance.
Small quantities of anti-wrinkle solution will be injected by a skilled practitioner directly into the forehead. The appearance of lines will be reduced, and the inner eyebrows are likely to lift and separate for a more youthful appearance. However, it’s extremely rare to just treat forehead lines without applying treatment to other areas of the face. This is because, to ensure a natural look, a balanced expression needs to be maintained throughout the entire face – treating forehead lines alone is likely to disrupt this, potentially creating a look that’s simply out of proportion. But if forehead lines are all you’re looking to treat, you’re able to discuss treatment options with a practitioner to establish a treatment plan that works for you.
Injections work by essentially ‘switching off’ the nerve endings in muscles, causing them to relax. The muscle in question is no longer able to contract – this then softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles with the skin covering these muscles able to regenerate. Anti-wrinkle treatments can also be used in the armpits to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
Treatments will be discussed with you in more detail during your initial consultation, whereby a recommendation will be given specific to you and your skin type. As well as anti-wrinkle treatments which act as a wrinkle reduction technique, we offer filler treatments, which as the name suggests are more of a wrinkle filler procedure. Wrinkle fillers are simply used as ‘volumizers’ plumping and lifting cheeks, jawlines, filling out thin lips or reshaping uneven lips. The fillers plump up the tissue underneath the skin, shrinking wrinkles. As a result the skin becomes firmer, smoother, and younger looking!

What causes forehead lines?
Forehead lines are primarily caused by ageing. As you age, your skin loses elasticity and doesn’t easily return to its original shape. Other things that contribute to having forehead lines are genetics, sunlight, repeated expressions, stress and smoking.

Frequently Asked Questions
During your consultation with us, we’ll answer any questions or concerns you may have.
During treatment, the solution will be injected directly into the muscles of the treatment area using a fine needle. As the needle is so small, it’s unlikely you’ll experience any pain; the most you’re likely to feel is a little sharp discomfort as the substance is injected.
A series of these injections will be administered, with a typical treatment session expected to last no longer then 15-20 minutes.
If you don’t instantly notice results after your first session, this is completely normal. Visible results are typically seen after around 7-9 days of treatment, but it could take up to 21 days for the full effect to develop.
The anti-ageing results can last anywhere between 2-5 months, meaning the results of this treatment aren’t permanent. To maintain a youthful, smooth complexion, you’ll likely need a series of top-up procedures between 2-4 times per year.
