When we are surprised or upset, creases naturally appear on our forehead, but after years and years of these facial expressions, the lines become deeper and more noticeable. If you are unhappy with the prevalence of forehead lines and furrows, the board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego may be able to help with a Botox treatment.
The dynamic muscles in our forehead and face are constantly contracting with our various facial expressions. Over time, this causes deep lines and wrinkles to form. Botox is a neuromodulator that, when injected into the muscle beneath a wrinkle, causes the muscle to stop contracting. This relaxation of the muscle results in a smoother brow, free of wrinkles.
Highly effective in reducing the appearance of deep forehead furrows and lines, this neuromodulator can be injected into the forehead in a quick treatment session and results are visible within a week of treatment. Typical results last between four and six months, and the procedure can be repeated when results begin to wear off.

Botox for Forehead Wrinkles FAQ
If you are considering Botox for forehead wrinkles, take a look at the answers to some frequently asked questions below to see if it is right for you. Contact us today for more information.
Q: Is it safe?
A: Neuromodulators are safe and effective for the treatment of facial wrinkles when the treatment is performed by an experienced doctor with specialized training in onabotulinum toxin A injections. The dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego are all trained and have safely performed the procedure in countless patients over years.
Q: Why Botox for forehead wrinkles?
A: Botox is often a good option for minimizing the appearance of brow furrows because the creases are caused by tense, contracting facial muscles. The neuromodulator relaxes the muscles that cause the furrows, smoothing out the area, whereas another treatment, such as a facial filler, is used to fill in volume lost with age. Wrinkles caused by lax skin and volume loss are often best treated with facial fillers.
Q: Is a treatment expensive?
A: The cost of a Botox treatment will depend on each individual case as each patient and each condition requires a different number of units. Once the doctor devises a customized treatment plan to meet your needs, the cost of the treatment can be discussed.
Q: How long do results last?
A: Individual results of a neuromodulator treatment will vary from patient to patient, but the average is 4-6 months. Once results subside, the treatment can be performed again.
Q: When will I see the results?
A: While some patients may see a subtle change right after the procedure, full results are typically experienced within a week of the treatment.
