FOREHEAD

The forehead is often a primary concern for patients as it is one of the first places to show signs of ageing. Whether it be from the contraction of muscles in the forehead causes wrinkling in the skin, volume loss causing concavities, and the effects of gravity of the forehead leading to descent of the brows and eyelids or sun damage.

Forehead wrinkles

The underlying mechanism causing wrinkling is contraction of the frontalis muscle. This muscle is responsible for lifting the brows, is a muscle of facial expression, and on contraction causes parallel horizontal lines on the forehead, and even frown lines. This has become a common concern for both men and women.

Volume loss on the forehead

As you age, you lose volume through loss of subcutaneous fat, bone resorption, as well as thinning of the muscles skin. This causes flattening or concavities to form in the forehead and the bony outline of the skull to become more evident. Furthermore, the loss of volume can tend to increase the propensity of the skin to wrinkle with contraction of frontalis (forehead muscle).

The volume lost, may increase skin creasing and decrease brow support, often making the eyelids heavier. The replacement of volume in the forehead not only rejuvenates the face, but also in many cases improves the overall harmony and balance of the area, and general smoothness of the forehead.

Treatments: Laser, skin peels, resurfacing laser, collagen induction therapy, Due to some treatments may require S4 medications TGA & APHRA regulations prohibit discussing treatments, prices or photos except at consultation after full assessment.

Sun damage on the forehead

Along with your hands, your face is another area which is most prone to exposure to the sun and that includes your forehead leading to skin changes such as freckling, sun spots, or solar damage. 

After a thorough consultation with one of our Sydney Aesthetic Registered Nurses, we will suggest which laser treatment is most suitable to treat your hyperpigmentation concerns. In some cases it may be a combination of laser treatments. This will improve problems such as brown spots or pigmentation more effectively than skin care alone.
