Wrinkles and creases on the forehead are caused by fatty deposits and poorly supported skin layers. Various treatment options are available, but most of these are plumping or abrasive resurfacing procedures. A more effective means of reducing the horizontal lines and small wrinkles on the forehead is a forehead lift. This procedure is similar to a facelift, but targets the forehead skin. It yields long-lasting results and has the potential to make you look years younger.
Candidates for a Forehead Lift
Sagging skin on the forehead can not only cause the individual to become more self-conscious, but it can also actually make the brow area look uneven. The horizontal leveling of the brows and eyes can be affected, and even skin drooping around the eyebrows can occur when too much fat is held in deposits beneath the forehead skin.
Ideal candidates for a forehead lift will be mature adults experiencing these symptoms. Horizontal creasing along the forehead and puffiness in the brow area are problems that can be treated with a forehead lift.
A Look at the Procedure
It is important to understand that lift procedures are not one-size-fits-all. The details of each procedure vary from patient to patient, depending on the patient’s goals and the recommendations of our surgeon, among other factors. Our surgeon may utilize a variety of techniques during your procedure. It all depends on the unique situation.
With that being said, a forehead lift typically involves tightening of the forehead skin and lifting of the brow area. This may be done through surgical means or through non-surgical means, such as Thermage CPT®. During a consultation at our office, you can learn more about what to expect during your procedure.
Benefits of a Forehead Lift
Although the client may have to perform some strict follow-up care at home, depending on the techniques used, the resulting smooth forehead skin will be much more free of wrinkles. Positive results often last for years.
