How to Reduce Forehead Wrinkles

Forehead wrinkles are some of the deepest wrinkles, and in effect can be the hardest to diminish.

Some say that reduced collagen production due to aging is probably the main reason. 

If that's completely true, why do some have wrinkled foreheads as young as 25 – while others who are years past middle age - hardly have any lines at all?

Some say that reduced collagen production due to aging is probably the main reason. Nobody knows for sure why, but the bottom line is - what can you do to reduce their appearance?

Besides hiding them with bangs (which may not work for every facial type) here are some tricks for making forehead wrinkles less noticeable.

Proven forehead wrinkle removing techniques

Many people swear by facial exercises and certain massage techniques. 

Facial fitness instructors explain that certain facial exercises can strengthen underlying facial muscles and the massaging effect can help improve skin tone and texture for a firmer, smoother face and neck.

Carolyn from Facial Fitness has several easy to use techniques to help reduce wrinkles on the forehead, crow's feet and upper neck and chest.

In addition to performing her 15 minute facial exercises program a few times a week - to keep your whole face and neck firm and smooth - she devised a wrinkle release technique for the forehead called the  "Dancing Cs."

This technique literally helps flatten out and lighten deep forehead wrinkles. 

  • Place the tips of your middle fingertips from each hand on your forehead side by side, one above the other, facing in opposite directions. (photo #1)
  • Then you glide a finger from each hand forward and around - making a large C shape. So your top finger is now on the bottom and bottom finger is on top. (photo#2)

Perform this movement in a quick manner sliding your fingers back and forth and up and down making a rounded C shape.

Forehead wrinkle creams

I don't believe creams will reduce or eliminate wrinkles all together.

But, creams and serums (like those containing retinols and peptides) can help smooth out skin and encourage healthy skin cell turnover for better skin in the future. 

A popular peptide containing cream to consider is NuGlow. We're told it contains a patent pending technology to ensure more peptides get absorbed for enhanced results. Click here to read more about the benefits of peptide wrinkle removal creams.

But, keep in mind creams can't remove deep wrinkles unless they're used in conjunction with professional treatments like laser resurfacing and chemical peels.

Silicon Patches

Really? Well, apparently many people swear that Frownies or a silicon patch can help slow the formation of wrinkles on the forehead. A secret many Hollywood stars swear by is to sleep with facial patches to keep forehead wrinkles flattened out.

Many people sleep using facial expressions that create wrinkles on the forehead, and these patches make it so your face isn’t frozen all night in a wrinkled way, which can further deepen your wrinkles. 

Below is a very popular silicon patches for forehead wrinkles and more.

Microdermabrasion treatments can help lighten the depth of the wrinkle and make them less visible. You can also use this treatment on other parts of your body, like around the eyes neck and chest to remove scaly rough patches, fine lines, and lighten discoloration.

There are powerful home microdermabrasion machines you can use it as a home facial treatment or to keep up in between professional sessions.

No More Wrinkles with Botox

Of course, the best treatment and – one that almost guarantees results – are injectables like Botox or Dysport.

If the above methods aren't getting you the results you would like, consider trying one these options.  However, be prepared to pay anywhere from $250-500 per treatment...Ouch!

But, the good news is that after the first several injections, most people only need about 2 treatments a year to maintain results. 

Yes, forehead wrinkles are annoying - even though I think under eye wrinkles are worse, because you can't hide them under long bangs.

But if those lines and wrinkles across your forehead really bother you, consider trying facial exercises or ask your dermatologist about injectables. The bottom line is -  it's important to feel good about yourself.
