Botox Before and After – Forehead

Before any beauty or aesthetic treatment, you should have a detailed consultation with a professional. They can provide you with honest advice on Botox before and after – forehead wrinkles.

What is Botox?

Botox is a brand of botulinum toxin injection that can be injected into various areas of the face. This form of injection can only be used by adults over the age of 18. Botox injections work by relaxing the muscles in the face and reducing their movement.

Dermal fillers work differently by filling the area with hyaluronic acid. This means the facial skin can appear fuller and more youthful. Our beauty therapists can advise you on the right treatment for your needs. Our beauty clinic near Blackpool has a relaxed environment where you can ask any questions you may have.

Why do people have forehead Botox?

There are many reasons why people choose to have Botox treatment. The forehead is a common place to treat, though you can also have Botox around the eyes (for crow’s feet), the nose and the mouth (around the lips). There are specifically approved areas where you can be treated for Botox in the face.

The forehead is an expressive part of the body. When we feel strong emotions, our foreheads are the driving force for displaying the emotion. Think about feelings and actions such as stress, confusion, surprise and laughing; your facial muscles are all working to share your facial expression. Over time, this can lead to forehead lines and wrinkles, otherwise known as frown lines!

Forehead Botox: what to expect

Before your forehead Botox treatment, you should be invited for a detailed consultation. Here, the therapist should speak with you about your goals and their expectations for the Botox results.

When you arrive for your appointment, the forehead area should be cleaned to remove any makeup. This reduces the risk of some issues after the injections have been completed.

You may have numbing cream applied to the area. Most patients only report feelings of pinching during the treatment rather than pain. Everyone has different thresholds, but you can always chat with your therapist about this if you are worried.

While the treatment is performed, you may be required to change your facial expressions. This helps the therapist to identify problem areas a little easier. Since the forehead is only one area of the face, the injections shouldn’t take long. Forehead Botox injections typically take around 10 minutes.

Where do people get forehead Botox?

One of the most common areas to have a botulinum toxin injection is where the eyebrows meet when frowning. These frown lines are referred to as glabella or glabellar lines. Some also call these 11 lines due to their appearance.

Your practitioner will map out the intended areas before the procedure begins. These areas can include the forehead lines, where the brows meet or other lines and wrinkles you wish to be more smooth.

Botox forehead before and after

You may have to wait a couple of days before you see a true difference and the results of your botulinum toxin injections. It is common to experience mild side effects, such as bruising and swelling. In addition, those with sensitive skin may appear to have a blotchy appearance.

Your practitioner should provide you with all information regarding side effects and aftercare for the botulinum toxin injections. They will also inform you of a timeframe for side effects. If you feel any concern, you should contact the practitioner and seek medical advice.

How much does Botox cost?

The cost of this forehead treatment varies due to the amount of filler used and the injection points. You should be told all prices before the cosmetic injections are completed.

Some individuals choose to have regular Botox treatments to maintain their desired look with forehead lines. This is because botulinum toxin is not a permanent cosmetic filler. It is recommended that you wait at least 3 – 4 months before having more injectable treatment. This can help to reduce the risks of feeling like your forehead is frozen.

At later appointments, your practitioner may find it appropriate to adjust the dosage used. At Therapy House, each therapist is passionate about helping you to achieve a natural look. Read our blog on how long does Botox last?

You should only have a Botox treatment that is administered by a trained professional with the relevant qualifications. Using an individual who is not qualified can lead to you having problems with your injections.
