Forehead wrinkles, or frown lines, are one of the most prevalent signs of ageing and are a common cause for concern as they can make you look tired or cross when you aren’t. While everyone will develop these wrinkles at some point, certain factors can accelerate their development. If you want to retain a youthful look, treating forehead wrinkles is a fast, simple procedure.
What are the causes of forehead wrinkles?
Lines and wrinkles on the forehead are caused by a muscle known as the frontalis. When you raise your eyebrows, the frontalis muscle contracts, causing wrinkles to appear. Over time, these wrinkles start to remain even when the muscle isn’t contracted.
A variety of factors can cause forehead wrinkles to worsen, such as smoking, age, and genetics.
At what age do forehead wrinkles appear?
Forehead wrinkles are typically associated with older age. However, they can start to appear in your twenties. They will be very fine lines, though many people now choose to treat them as a preventative measure. Most people find forehead wrinkles worsen in their thirties.
However severe your forehead wrinkles are, there are treatments available to help turn back the clock.
