Aesthetic medicine treats forehead or ‘brow’ wrinkles with injections of botulinum toxin or ‘botox’, and less often with hyaluronic acid ‘filler’ injections.
Different degrees of wrinkle severity are shown on scales.

Erasing forehead wrinkles with Botox injections
The frontal muscle is responsible for the appearance of these wrinkles. When the muscle contracts, the skin follows, leading to dynamic or ‘movement’ wrinkles. Static or ‘at rest’ wrinkles are due to the gradual breaking down of the skin’s elasticity as it follows the muscle.
Injections of botulinum toxin allow us to reduce the frontal muscle’s hyperactivity.
Botox is the suitable solution as soon as forehead wrinkles (whether static or dynamic) start to be a problem for the individual.
Side effects, and results of botox for forehead wrinkles
There are no side effects.
The practitioner must have mastered the technique. If the injection to the frontal muscle is poorly administered, there is a risk of slumping eyebrows or the ‘frozen’ look.
The result is not immediate, but will become progressively noticeable in the week following the injection. Depending on what you have agreed with your doctor, the muscle will be either partially or totally blocked.
Wrinkle filling using hyaluronic acid injections
Hyaluronic acid isn’t greatly useful in the case of forehead wrinkles, because the wrinkles cannot be filled perfectly, and the product won’t last very long in place.
