Forehead Treatments

There are multiple reason for forehead lines, and with an accurate assessment and diagnosis, the patient is provided with the most efficient methods to minimise these wrinkles, which depending on each individual may require combined treatments to optimize their results. Most forehead lines are simple and can be easily treated with anti-wrinkle injections, whereas the more stubborn and deep forehead lines generally require our range of high premium fillers to improve.

This simple treatment is also used as a preventative procedure that aims to limit the appearance of wrinkle lines, to help you sustain your youth. Our goal is to keep you looking refreshed and energised.  

Forehead Anti-Wrinkle Treatment

How do they work?

A neurotoxin is injected into the targeted areas across the forehead which leads to weakening and shrinkage of the Frontalis muscle, which is the muscle responsible for horizontal wrinkle lines.

When should I expect to notice results?

Fillers are strategically placed in the mid portion of the face, where the insertion points are going to be based on the individual and the desired outcome. This is achieved by inserting the filler (a gel like substances which strengthens over the next few weeks) in the area of the mid face which helps enlarge, define and contour the cheeks.
HA fillers are dissolvable which means you can always reverse their effect if you ever change your mind.

With the use of world renowned premium grade TGA approved products, facial fillers help too:

  • Provides a more youthful appearance, helps restore volume loss, provides structure support and lift to the brows, eye lids and aspects of the mid and lower face. This appropriately helps contour the face to provide an adequate balance and facial ratio.
  • Enhancing shape and definition to the face.
  • Hyaluronic acid injected directly into the facial tissues stimulates the production of collagen.
  • Help produce a symmetrical appearance as symmetry is associated with attractiveness.

How long do the effects of neurotoxins last?

Generally 3 to 6 months. Approximately just over 60% of patient will retain neurotoxin effects at the 4 months mark post treatment. Depending on genetics and lifestyle, some patients only retain effects for up to 8 weeks (those who are extremely physically active tends to metabolize the product faster and have shorter lasting results)

How many units would I need?

There are many factors contributing to the quantity of neurotoxin required. There are different types of neurotoxins readily available and the quantity will vary according to the product, as they have differing strengths per unit.
Patient history regarding previous treatments and outcome results are generally a good indicator and we encourage our patients to note which product they have previously used and how many units were used.
Other factors include, previous history of complications, current budget, and desired amount of facial expressions to be reserved.

Temporary drooping of the eyebrows or eyelids in less than 1% of cases; this may occur with anti-wrinkle treatment near these structures and may last for a few weeks and then spontaneously self resolves.

Spock brow; occurs when the outer part of the brows becomes too elevated and produces a small crease above the lateral brow when lifting them. This may occur when your injector is attempting to maximise the brow lift, however, every individual is different and some patients may strongly to this resulting in a strong lift of the outer brows. This is simply corrected with a free follow up treatment using small amount of neurotoxin at no extra charge.

Dermal Fillers To The Forehead

The most common causes involve volume loss and increased muscle strength. The most popular treatment in this scenario involves the use of anti-wrinkle (neurotoxin) injections. The neurotoxin leads to a temporary paralysis of parts of the muscle which leads to a significant reduction in wrinkle lines, especially those more prominent with facial expressions. 

Dermal fillers are used to treat concavity of the forehead where a large dip can be visualized, or where there are static wrinkle lines ie lines that can still be seen even when the person is at rest and there’s no facial expression. Fillers are carefully placed in safe areas and moulded to treat these stubborn wrinkles or dipping/ volume loss of the forehead, in order to produce a natural appearance. 
Fillers are also used to enhance the facial appearance as a more prominent forehead and brows produce a more masculine appearance.

Pain Relief

Most practitioners and patients prefer to have some form of pain relief. There are multiple options available for your convenience;

  • Initially, a topical numbing agent such as emla cream or lmx, is applied to the area of treatment. Common additional forms of pain relief:
  • Local anaesthesia using a nerve block is a fantastic method to achieve almost no pain at all, however this does vary based on individual. This is quite similar and sometimes used interchangeably with the term dental block. Most dermal fillers also contain local anaesthesia and hence any pain experienced during treatment generally tends to improve throughout
  • Laughing gas (also known as happy gas or Nitros oxide) is also available.
  • Applying ice to the area prior to treatment can also help reduce the pain, and applying ice after the procedure also helps reduce the swelling.

After the pain relief is applied, cleaning agents to minimise infection risk, such as alcohol swabs or Chlorhexidine is applied to the area. Dermal fillers are applied by injecting the product and inserting accordingly at different layers beneath the skin

 

Right After The Procedure

After treatment Some bruising, redness and swelling maybe present and self resolve over the next few days. Generally the swelling tends to provide a slightly enhanced effect due to the increased volume associated with this, which tends to disappear eventuate into a more natural appearance. Some patients tend to enjoy the swelling effect, however others may prefer the more natural effect.

Treatment Risks

Risks and side effects of Dermal fillers

Bruising

Swelling in the injection region

Redness

Asymmetry. One side may have a better outcome than the other. This is often due to the fact that faces have a great degree of asymmetry and people often tend to focus more on their face after treatment where these asymmetries become more obvious to the individuals. With many patients, one side of the face tends to be healthier and respond better to treatment providing more structural support and better outcome.

Infection; rare but is always a possibility when there is any opening of the skin

Necrosis (cells death due to obstruction of a blood vessel): Rare complication. This may potentially lead to worse outcomes.

Blindness is an extremely rare outcome.     

After Care Instructions

No make up for 6 hours after.

No intense exercise for 24 hrs

No alcohol for 24 hrs

No exposure to high temperature environments for 7 days, such as spa’s, sauna etc
