Do horizontal lines in the forehead bother you? It can give an aged look. Through treatment with muscle relaxants, these lines can fade or even disappear!

Forehead wrinkles are the horizontal wrinkles in the forehead. They are formed by the raising of the eyebrows. Often people do not realize how often they raise the eyebrows during the day. Especially people who are very expressive in the face while talking often unconsciously raise the eyebrows. When the eyebrows are raised, 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 as they cause the face to age considerably.

Botulinum toxin is a muscle relaxant that causes the forehead muscle to temporarily contract less hard. Because the muscle no longer contracts properly, wrinkles can no longer form in the skin. As a result, the skin becomes smoother and tighter. Forehead wrinkles can thus be both reduced and prevented.

When to start muscle relaxants?

The ideal time to start using muscle relaxants is when forehead wrinkles become visible in a neutral facial expression. In fact, from this moment on, the wrinkles will only deepen. The muscle relaxants at this time will not only make the wrinkles disappear, but also has a preventive effect. Namely, it prevents the wrinkles from getting much deeper.

How long does the result last?

On average, muscle relaxants remain effective for 3 to 4 months. After that time, the treated muscles will gradually begin to work more and more. When the muscle relaxants wear off, the treatment can be repeated. Repetition of treatment is important to maintain the best possible results.
