What’s The Best Filler for Deep Forehead Wrinkles?

Youthful and wrinkle-free skin doesn’t come easy, especially for people whose age is catching up to their appearance. Having deep-set horizontal forehead lines is one of the most common reasons why many individuals are getting dermal filler injections these days. These cosmetic injectables provide a great temporary solution for smoothing out facial wrinkles and revitalizing one’s look.

So what’s the best filler for deep forehead wrinkles? Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm are some of the most popular injectable dermal fillers for erasing moderate and severe lines on the forehead. Synthetic dermal filler products like Radiesse and Bellafill can also be considered for deep frown lines and forehead furrows. To get the best possible results, be sure to discuss your wants and needs  with your aesthetic provider.

Dermal Filler Options for Deep Wrinkles on Forehead

The early signs of skin aging usually show on the forehead area, which is why it’s a common treatment site for dermal filler injectables. When injected underneath the skin, dermal fillers work their rejuvenating magic by visibly plumping up the skin and filling out lines and facial wrinkles. 

When choosing dermal fillers to use for deep forehead wrinkles, it’s important to consult the help of your aesthetic provider. Dermal fillers can be made either from naturally-occurring substances in the body or from synthetic substances. These can have different effects, and you’re absolutely free to choose which filler to get depending on your preferred look. To better understand how they work, here is a guide to wrinkle filler injections for the forehead: 

1. Hyaluronic acid or HA fillers

There’s a good reason why hyaluronic acid is one of the best deep wrinkle filler forehead treatments. For one, hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that’s already present in the skin and when used as a facial filler injection, it can reduce the appearance of facial lines and deep forehead wrinkles while keeping the skin hydrated and moisturized for a brighter and rejuvenated look. 

The skin-enhancing and anti wrinkle treatment effects of hyaluronic acid fillers can last for 6 to 12 months. Because hyaluronic acid substances can attract and retain water, these fillers can help maintain fullness and smooth skin texture for some time even after its particles have been absorbed by the body. 

2. Calcium hydroxylapatite or CaHA filler

Calcium hydroxylapatite fillers are biocompatible cosmetic injectables that contain CaHA microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel form. Like hyaluronic acid, CaHA fillers are made of naturally occurring substances that are primarily found in the bones. Its material has a thicker and firmer consistency which is great for providing support to skin and increasing facial volume. 

CaHA fillers are also thought to be biostimulators which means they can stimulate new collagen production for longer-lasting results. This type of filler is widely used for deeper wrinkles on the forehead, as well as on moderate to severe fine lines. It also reduces the appearance of creases around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). 

3. Polymethylmethacrylate or PMMA filler

Polymethylmethacrylate is a synthetic substance that usually takes the form of tiny micro-spheric beads mixed with bovine collagen to create a facial filler material. As a soft tissue filler, PMMA can be used for treating deep facial wrinkles, frown lines, or glabellar furrows, smile lines, and nasolabial folds. It’s also intended for minimizing the appearance of moderate to severe acne scars. 

The PMMA microspheres can also provide a boost to your skin’s natural elastin and collagen production. By encouraging collagen growth, PMMA fillers can produce lasting results with effects that can get better over time to help lessen the formation of deep forehead creases and fine lines.

Reasons Why Deep Forehead Wrinkles Form 

The appearance of deep forehead wrinkles and worry lines can make you look older than your actual age. This often leaves most people frustrated about their look. To be able to prevent and treat them, you need to be aware of the different factors that are influencing their formation. Here are the possible causes of severe forehead wrinkles: 

  • Sun exposure – Too much sun exposure can damage your skin’s connective tissues and lead to loss of elasticity and collagen. 
  • Age – Natural aging may cause the structural foundation in your skin to diminish, which can lead to more pronounced static wrinkles and sagging skin. 
  • Smoking and lifestyle factors – Poor lifestyle activities such as smoking can also accelerate skin aging and result in premature wrinkles.
  • Excessive or repetitive facial expressions – Repeated use of the forehead muscles (frontalis muscle) can wear out the skin surface and lead to deep dynamic wrinkles and fine lines.

Alternatives to Dermal Filler Treatment for Deep Forehead Lines

Other cosmetic treatments may be considered for deep forehead lines and wrinkles depending on their severity and the cause of their formation. Here are the other possible treatments for forehead wrinkles: 

 BotoxLaser Skin ResurfacingChemical Peels 
How it works Botulinum toxin or Botox injections are wrinkle-relaxers that work by paralyzing the facial muscles to limit its movement and reduce visible wrinkles. Laser skin treatments improve forehead wrinkles by using heat to stimulate the skin cells to repair and produce new collagen. A chemical peel reduces deep facial wrinkles by exfoliating and stripping the layers of old skin. Its process eventually induces new collagen production to give a wrinkle-free skin texture. 
Expected results Botox is an ideal facial injection for dynamic wrinkles and can last for 3 to 6 months after every treatment. The results from a laser skin resurfacing procedure can last for months to several years. Results from this facial treatment can last for 6 months to a year, depending on the type of peel that you received. 
How many treatments are needed You may need Botox sessions once every 3 to 4 months to get desired effects. Dermatologists can recommend at least 1 laser treatment session. Chemical peel treatments for facial wrinkles may be scheduled once per month or every 6 months.
