You get forehead wrinkles for several reasons such as aging, sun exposure, and frequently raising your eyebrows.
When we grow older, our body produces less collagen and the strength of elastin in the skin deteriorates. As collage production slows down, the skin becomes thinner and loses its firmness. When that happens, appearance of wrinkles and fine lines become more visible. The lack of elastin in your body means that the skin doesn’t easily spring back into place as quickly as it would when you were younger.
Exposure to the sun and other environmental factors accelerates skin aging. UV rays, smoking, and having insufficient sleep can cause forehead winkles and fine lines to form much faster than it should.
Although forehead wrinkles are not a medical condition, it can be unsightly and make you look tired and older than you actually are. Over time, the lines on the forehead can etch into the skin and they will be permanently there even if you are not raising your eyebrows.
Forehead wrinkles is a common skin problem which can be treated effectively through a combination of skin strengthening, relaxation of overactive muscles, and filling in of any lines with fillers.
Know Your Problems

- Loss of skin elasticity with age, sun-damage and other environmental factors make the appearance of horizontal forehead lines even worse.
- A combination of aesthetic treatments can solve the problem effectively.
- Using Botox alone to solve the problem may result in an unnatural, heavy look which plagued many celebrities in the early 2000s.
