REDUCE CREASES AND GET SMOOTHER SKIN ON THE UPPER AREA OF THE FACE IN NEWTON AND THE BOSTON AREA
Although wrinkles are a natural part of life and will eventually develop at some age, they are still bothersome for many people. Forehead wrinkles, in particular—such as horizontal lines and frown lines between the brows—can be frustrating. They’re also located in an area that’s difficult to conceal. Furthermore, these wrinkles can make you appear older, tired, angry, or sad, even if you don’t feel that way. Forehead wrinkles are an especially common cosmetic concern. Although it might not be possible to entirely get rid of these pesky wrinkles, there are ways of reducing them. Forehead BOTOX® at the Boston area’s Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics is an ideal way of smoothing out these lines or even delaying or preventing them from developing in the first place.
WHAT IS FOREHEAD BOTOX®?
There are several factors that contribute to the formation of forehead wrinkles, including excessive sun exposure that causes a decline in the body’s production of collagen and reduces skin elasticity, facial muscle strength, our repeated facial expressions that involve the forehead and the activity of the frontalis muscles, staring at screens, stress, gravity, pollution, behavioral habits, and genetics.

The best type of treatment for any forehead lines depends on their initial cause. For dynamic wrinkles (caused by habitual facial expressions), we recommend forehead BOTOX®.
If anti-aging skin care and other treatments haven’t been helpful, you may be considering an injectable treatment. Anyone searching for “forehead BOTOX® near me” should know that it’s important to do research on the treatment and provider. In other words, it’s critical to find a good injector.
BOTOX® for forehead wrinkles is a minimally invasive, injectable treatment used to smooth and relax lines that form on the upper face. Forehead BOTOX® contains botulinum toxin as its active ingredient and temporarily relaxes overly expressive muscles. It can be injected into several places, including the forehead to smooth wrinkles.
The procedure for forehead BOTOX® is similar to other types of BOTOX® treatments, and the results can last for three to four months. Dr. Holly Happe will tell you more about the procedure, preparation, recovery, and cost for BOTOX® for the forehead area at a personalized consultation.
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN FOREHEAD BOTOX® ADDRESS?
Forehead BOTOX® can make horizontal forehead lines and vertical “elevens” or glabellar lines between the eyebrows look smoother and less pronounced. These are two of the specific sites the FDA has approved for forehead BOTOX® injections.
DOES BOTOX® CAUSE A SHINY FOREHEAD?
Sometimes patients complain that BOTOX® for forehead lines can make the forehead look shiny, especially if they have a high forehead. When the right techniques are used for this treatment, it’s possible to avoid the tight, shiny forehead BOTOX® results that look very overdone.
Dr. Holly Happe believes that BOTOX® should always look natural and never shiny. She administers forehead BOTOX® in a subtle way to maintain a natural-looking appearance. Too many units of BOTOX® for forehead wrinkles can cause an “overdone” or “frozen” appearance, so she seeks to avoid this by using the right amount of the medication.
WHICH COSMETIC PROCEDURES ARE AVAILABLE BEYOND FOREHEAD BOTOX®?
There are many uses of this injectable that are complementary to forehead BOTOX®. In addition to enhancing the appearance of the forehead, BOTOX® at Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics can also be used for softening crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes, bunny lines at the sides of the nose, and lines above the lips. Aside from its use as a corrective treatment for lines that have already formed, preventative BOTOX® stops wrinkles from forming or becoming more pronounced.
BOTOX® has other benefits that go beyond reducing wrinkles on the face as well. It can improve a gummy smile, reduce neck bands, shape the outer part of the nostrils, smooth bunny lines, lift the corners of the lips, lift a drooping brow, address chin dimpling, or curb teeth grinding and even migraines. Face-slimming BOTOX® and jawline BOTOX® improve the shape of the face or correct asymmetry by slimming overactive facial muscles in certain areas.
Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid gels or collagen stimulators that are designed for treating static wrinkles linked to collagen loss or other factors that you can’t address with BOTOX®. If you want to prevent forehead wrinkles, you can also ask Dr. Holly Happe about implementing an anti-aging skincare routine with the right products and treatments.
