Are you bothered by the horizontal wrinkles on your forehead? It can cause you to look older. With a botox treatment, these lines can soften or even disappear!

Forehead wrinkles are the horizontal lines in the forehead. They are formed by the movement of raising the eyebrows. People often unconsciously raise their eyebrows many times a day. Especially people who are very expressive in the face whilst talking. When raising the eyebrows, the forehead muscle contracts, creating horizontal wrinkles in the skin. Over time, these wrinkles will also be visible in a neutral facial expression. This can be very distracting by causing the face to age considerably.

Botox, or botulinum toxin, is a muscle relaxant that causes the forehead muscle to temporarily remain in a relaxed state. Because the muscle no longer contracts strongly, wrinkles can no longer be formed in the skin. As a result, the skin becomes smoother and tighter. Forehead wrinkles can thus be both reduced and prevented.

When should I start with botox?

The ideal time to start using botox is when the forehead wrinkles become visible in a neutral facial expression. In fact, from this moment onwards, the wrinkles will only deepen. The botox at this time will not only make the wrinkles disappear, but also has a preventive effect for getting deeper wrinkles at a later age. 

How long does the result last?

On average, botox remains effective for 3 to 4 months. After that time, the treated muscles will gradually begin to work more and more. When the botox is not effective anymore, the treatment can be repeated. Repetition of treatment is important to maintain the best possible results.
