Treatment for forehead lines

There are many wrinkle treatments available that have proven effective in reducing or completely reversing the effects of age and skin damage on the face. Options range from over the counter retinoid creams to plastic surgery. Injections, such as dermal fillers, are popular solutions whose effects last longer than over the counter methods but are non-invasive, unlike surgery.

Dermal fillers are soft tissue fillers that can contain fat, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, are injected under the skin to plump and smooth out wrinkles and furrows. Some temporary swelling, redness, and bruising can occur in the treated area.

Maintenance treatments

Of the dermal fillers, collagen-based dermal fillers last the least amount of time, generally between 3 and 4 months. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers cause a smoothing effect that can last approximately 6 to 12 months. Some dermal fillers are chemically modified to be absorbed more slowly by the body. Longer-lasting dermal fillers include those containing calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral found in teeth and bones. These dermal fillers last approximately 18 months. Dermal fillers containing poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a man-made polymer, can last up to 2 years.
