The long, horizontal lines on the forehead (worry lines).

Forehead lines

These are the long horizontal lines present on the forehead. They occur with contraction of the “frontalis” muscle which is used to lift our eyebrows. You may begin to notice the first signs of forehead lines in your late twenties and early thirties as faint lines begin to appear. With time, these lines gradually deepen and become increasingly prominent until they are visible even when you aren’t raising your eyebrows or frowning. Although age makes them worse, some people have forehead lines before they have any other signs of ageing skin.

Keeping your skin protected from the sun is the best prevention for ageing skin. 

Wear a wide-brimmed hat and plenty of sunscreen to block out harmful UV rays; this will help to preserve your skin’s natural collagen supplies for longer. Anti-ageing injectables such as BOTOX® injections are used to relax the facial muscles to help prevent lines caused by repetitive facial movements.

For more static lines, apart from regular botox injections, other treatments designed to strip back layers of damaged skin, such as chemical skin peels or microneedling are necessary.
