Foreheads are common areas for wrinkles and lines to form. Repetitive motions from daily use and regular stressors cause wrinkles to develop and these often deepen and multiply with age. Recent increases in working from home and video conferencing have caused many people to notice how prominent their forehead wrinkles are. Men in particular can develop very deep wrinkles due to strong forehead muscles that can leave them looking tired or angry.
In order to treat forehead and other wrinkles, Botox® and its equivalents, such as Dysport, are safe and popular treatment options. Botox® and Dysport are both FDA-approved to treat forehead wrinkles in quick, 10-minute treatments with minimal downtime. The providers at Skin and Laser Dermatology Center take into consideration unique facial asymmetries and the differences in male and female faces in order to provide natural, improved results. Call today to schedule a cosmetic consultation and find out how we can help you reduce your forehead wrinkles.
Frequently Asked Questions
You may begin to see results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe wrinkles. Full results may take up to seven days after the procedure to be realized.
Botox® and Dysport deliver subtle results that diminish the appearance of wrinkles. The expertise of the providers at Skin and Laser Dermatology Center means your results will reflect your improved, natural facial structure.
Botox® and Dysport work beneath the surface of the skin and temporarily reduces the activity of the underlying forehead muscle (called the frontalis muscle) that causes moderate to severe frown lines. These results last between 3 to 6 months and cause visibly smoother skin.
Patients will be seen for a cosmetic consultation to discuss their specific needs and desires. The procedure itself is safe, efficient, and has minimal discomfort and post-care. Some patients report that the injections feel like a pinch. Patients are usually able to return to work and daily activities immediately after the treatment. It is best to avoid strenuous exercise and lying down for approximately 4-6 hours following the treatment.
Side effects from Botox® and Dysport, if any, are usually mild and temporary. Botulinum, the primary component of Botox®, contains proteins that, in rare circumstances, may be naturally safeguarded against by the body’s ability to produce antibodies. If antibodies are formed, the therapy will generate a lesser response. Temporary bruising is sometimes experienced but usually resolves within two to three days. In rare cases, there can be a slight asymmetry of expression and change in the shape of the brows. If this should happen, return to our office for evaluation and correction. During your consultation with our staff, please let us know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Skin & Laser Dermatology Center treats patients for all skin care concerns, including skin cancer surgery, cosmetic dermatology, sclerotherapy, laser peels, laser hair removal, hyperhidrosis, rosacea, and acne treatments.

My eyelid surgery results for the facial wrinkles look very natural. Very skilled dermatologic surgeon.
Dr. Bajoghli always has time for his patients, you never feel that he is rushing you and after you leave if you have any concerns he is very responsive to the point of giving out his cell phone number. I can’t say enough about him and his staff.
Nurse Rassmussen answers all of my questions, listens to my concerns, examines my skin, goes over my treatment protocol and gets me out the door quickly, but without feeling rushed, so that I can get on with the rest of my day. I have already recommended this practice to a couple of friends, and I will continue to do so with confidence.
I really appreciate the polite and professional service that Dr. Bajoghli’s practice provides in my dermatologic health. All of his staff make you feel welcome and are concerned for your care. Speaking as someone who neglected his skin care when I was young, I appreciate having a physician who is personally concerned for his patients.
