What are forehead lines?
Forehead lines (also known as worry lines) are one of the 3 most common concerns for people seeking anti-wrinkle injections at Amara.
When we look concerned, worried or surprised, movement of the muscles of the forehead causes worry lines to appear. The most noticeable lines appear horizontally across the forehead. These are sometimes referred to simply as horizontal lines.
Worry lines appear during expressive movement of the muscles of the forehead. The main muscle here is called frontalis, and it spans the width of your forehead.
How do worry lines affect our appearance?
Worry lines can age us, especially in their early, semi-permanent form. They are one of the first sets of lines people start to notice because our forehead is normally visible to others and readily noticeable in a mirror. Their appearance gives us a stressed look that is often not justified.
Why do we treat worry lines with anti-wrinkle injections and not dermal fillers?
Worry lines are difficult area to treat with dermal fillers. This is because the wrinkles that form here are very shallow and it’s difficult to place the product properly. Results tend to last for only a few weeks because the fillers used are so thin and not as robust as they need to be. At Amara we are most concerned with patient results, so prefer the more effective treatment option of anti-wrinkle injections.
Anti-wrinkle injections are highly effective at reducing the movement of your forehead muscle. This softens fine lines and wrinkles that are there. It also prevents excessive movement from worsening lines that have started to form, and slows down the formation of more permanent furrows.
