Lines on our Forehead are created naturally when we make certain movements and expressions with our face. Over time, those lines become deeper and more permanent, resulting in forehead wrinkles. In addition, our skin produces less collagen and loses its volume and suppleness as we age. This causes our skin to loosen and sag, which leads to deeper wrinkles and loss of volume in the forehead. Forehead Line treatment in Melbourne from Face To Face Medical may help address these issues.
Forehead wrinkles appear as horizontal lines across the forehead. They make the person look more stressed, more tired, and worst of all – older. They may start as fine lines, but eventually, forehead wrinkles can become quite deep.
Forehead wrinkles are very hard to hide with makeup. Often, they are deep and makeup sinks into the crevices, exaggerating the wrinkles. Without make-up, they are equally noticeable and add age and fatigue to your appearance. Preventing these lines from forming is easier than trying to reverse them. Therefore, starting your treatment just before they become permanently etched into your forehead is recommended. To address forehead lines, the treatment options for our Melbourne patients include anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.
Although many believe wrinkles appear with age, people with very expressive faces can get them early on. For that reason, there is no specific timeline for seeking treatment for Forehead wrinkles.
Forehead wrinkles are easy to treat. When it comes to forehead lines, the treatment our Melbourne team most commonly uses is anti-wrinkle injections. Anti-wrinkle injections can be injected into the area to relax the muscles of the forehead and smooth the appearance of the overlying wrinkles. This procedure takes fifteen minutes with no downtime and no recovery. It’s easy, effective, and well maintained with follow up treatments every few months.
Several factors need to be considered when undertaking treatment for forehead lines in Melbourne.
1The forehead muscle is the only muscle that elevates the eyebrow. It is important when treating forehead lines to consider the pre-existing eyebrow position, eyelid heaviness, as well as the patient’s goals. Too much anti-wrinkle injection or incorrect placement of the injections can lead to too much muscle relaxation, causing heaviness in the forehead and dropping of the Eyebrows.
2 Some patients would like to achieve an eyebrow elevation. Anti-wrinkle Injections into the Frown Lines can elevate the eyebrows and are often used in conjunction with forehead line treatment to maintain or elevate eyebrow position. To achieve this requires very specific placement of the Anti-Wrinkle Injections.
3The degree of forehead line softening and forehead movement is determined by the dose of Anti-Wrinkle Injections used. Some patients like to have only minimal softening of lines whilst maintaining movement, whereas others prefer a greater degree of softening and no movement.
We strive to maintain a natural look in which you have a softening of forehead lines while maintaining normal eyebrow expressions. Each patient has individual anatomy, goals and facial balance, so we individualise every treatment. The clinicians at Face To Face Medical are highly skilled and strive for the best and most natural result possible.
A thorough assessment and consultation followed by a treatment plan that is discussed with you. Included in the assessment is a careful observation of your muscle movement in animation, and your lines at rest and in animated expression. Photographic documentation is part of every initial assessment.
Using a very fine needle, we inject the Anti-wrinkle Injection clear fluid into the skin above the forehead muscles in a pattern that is unique to your facial movements. The procedure itself is very straightforward, only taking a few minutes. In fact, you can schedule appointments in your lunch break from work and head back into the office once the treatment is complete.
Most people feel little to no discomfort during the injection process. Ice can be applied to your skin to reduce any discomfort. After the procedure, you may notice little red bumps where the injection was administered. These typically subside in about 10 minutes. We advise you not to massage or rub the area for 4 hours post-treatment to avoid shifting the Anti-Wrinkle Injections.
Over the following days, the targeted muscles will relax and reduce the appearance of the overlying wrinkles while still allowing you to make natural facial expressions. Our aim is to look rejuvenated and natural at the same time.

Forehead filler helps reduce lines and restores facial symmetry and balance by contouring the forehead Shape. In females, a slightly convex forehead shape is desirable whereas, in males, it is a straight forehead. The forehead shape can be concave due to genetics or age.
The forehead may benefit from Dermal Fillers contouring for several reasons:
Each patient has individual anatomy, goals and facial balance, so we individualise every treatment. Included in the assessment is a careful observation of your facial shape, and your facial proportions. The clinicians at Face To Face Medical are highly skilled and strive for the best and most natural result possible.
Dermal Fillers contain local anaesthetic mixed in with the pre-packaged filler gel, so pain or discomfort during Dermal Fillers injections is usually minimal. A fine needle or micro-cannula (fine blunt-tipped instrument) is used to inject the filler into carefully selected areas of the Forehead. The treatment takes around 30 -60 minutes. Results last 6-18 months.
