Forehead Wrinkles Q & A

Why do forehead wrinkles develop?

When you consider the shape and function of the human face, it makes sense why forehead wrinkles are so common. Your forehead is angled in a way to catch the bulk of the sun’s rays. Aside from perhaps your nose, your forehead is usually the first place to get sunburned or to show sun damage. 

Your forehead also has many small muscles beneath your skin that work to enable facial expressions. Everything from a questioning lift of the eyebrows to yawning creates movement in your forehead. Many of those movements occur without your conscious direction. 

Collagen loss is another primary cause of forehead lines and wrinkles. As the years pass, you lose a portion of the collagen that serves to plump your skin. Because there is little tissue between your forehead skin and skull, this area of your body can develop wrinkles early. 

What treatments can help lessen forehead wrinkles?

Dr. Paikal performs considerable research before choosing treatment platforms to introduce to his practice. He decided to add TempSure Envi to his treatment offerings because the technology is at the cutting-edge of the aesthetics market. 

TempSure Envi sessions take very little time and do not require any special preparation on your part. There is no pain involved, and you can return to your normal daily routines immediately after each session. 

The process works by directing radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of your skin, where it is converted into heat. That heat prompts your body to respond with a healing reaction. The result is the production of new collagen, which smooths your skin and softens lines and wrinkles.  

Why choose TempSure Envi over a brow lift?

A brow lift is a plastic surgery procedure that lifts and pulls your forehead skin tauter. It requires incisions along your hairline and all of the inconveniences and risks associated with surgery. 

While extreme wrinkling and sagging in the brow area may be best addressed through a brow lift, simple forehead lines and wrinkles don’t require an invasive surgical solution. TempSure Envi treatments can yield significant improvements with no need for anesthesia, advance preparation, or downtime.  

There’s also no risk of infection because the surface of your skin isn't breached. Results develop gradually over a few months, so there’s no sudden or jarring change in your appearance. Your friends and family will notice you look younger and more well-rested, but it won’t look like you’ve “had something done.”
