How can hyaluronic acid treat forehead lines?
Although these lines that are etched across our foreheads can be the result of natural ageing, they are more commonly caused by years of brow-raising, frowning, and daily sunscreen neglect.
Because HA attracts and holds water when injected, it plumps our skin so that these unwanted lines and wrinkles in this dynamic zone become less visible.5
Glabella lines (frown lines), also result from frequent frowning and can be treated with HA fillers.42
Which HA treatments are suitable for forehead lines?
As we age, we can lose nearly 70% of our body’s hyaluronic acid pool.73 It’s no wonder that HA is the first choice in skin firming treatments27.
Although botulinum toxin is most commonly used for forehead and frown lines (also called glabella), HA dermal fillers are also a treatment of choice for this dynamic area. After treatment with these fillers, the skin will look smoother due to improved hydration and filling the lines. Hyaluronic acid injection also encourage collagen production therefore, the result is replenished volume and younger looking skin.5,59

How many treatments are needed to see satisfactory results on forehead lines?
Because HA is naturally absorbed by our bodies, treatments last up to 24 months, depending on several factors: our skin type, the severity of the wrinkle/fold to be corrected, the type of injection and the volume of product injected.26,31,75
Further treatments usually require less product as the increased amount of collagen in our skin strengthens its structure and helps us look younger.5,26,76
