Botox® for Forehead
Global Laser Cosmetics
As we get older our skin thins, dries and becomes less resilient. A very common and frustrating outcome of this aging process are wrinkles. Forehead wrinkles tend to be one of the most prominent signs of aging. Some people experience horizontal lines along the forehead, vertical lines between the eyebrows or sometimes both. Even smiling, frowning and other consistent facial expressions can make forehead wrinkles more noticeable. Here at Global Laser Cosmetics, we provide a variety of different products and treatments that can help prevent and minimize the appearance of these wrinkles.
What are the main causes of forehead wrinkles?
Most common causes of forehead wrinkles are mainly due to aging. Other contributing factors such as sun damage, genetics, dehydration and the overall health of an individual can also facilitate in the appearance of wrinkles. It’s easy to determine if an individual has these specific wrinkles simply by evaluating the target area. In most cases, forehead wrinkles are noticeable with or without the individual making any type of facial expression.
There are many natural and holistic ways to go about preventing forehead wrinkles. Those who are habitually active and maintain an overall healthy lifestyle can postpone the appearance wrinkles longer than the average person, but aging is definite. At Global Laser Cosmetics, we have preventative treatments and products to help reduce and/or eliminate unwanted wrinkles. We offer free consultations for new and existing patients who are interested in our products and services. The easiest way to help better understand which products and/or treatments are right for you is to speak with one of our experienced nurses or doctor in your consultation.

Typically, the cost of fillers is determined per syringe and the cost for Botox®/Dysport® is determined by units. Since every individual is different and depending on the severity of their wrinkles and the specific look they may be going for, during the consultation our nurses and/or doctor will be able to provide a more specific price for the treatment.
