What are forehead wrinkles?

As we age, the natural collagen and elastin in the skin start to diminish, leading to the appearance of wrinkles on the face, such as forehead wrinkles. These lines are particularly visible on the forehead, caused by repeated smiling, frowning and expressing surprise.  

Types of forehead wrinkles

There are two types of wrinkles: dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles are only visible when you move your face in certain ways, such as frowning. Static wrinkles, on the other hand, tend to be deeper and visible even when your face is at rest.

If you want to get rid of forehead wrinkles, there are various techniques to reduce and prevent their appearance.

What causes forehead wrinkles?

Forehead wrinkles are caused by a variety of reasons and usually through a combination of several factors. These include: 

  • Expressiveness and genetics: where wrinkles appear is largely dependent on the anatomy of your facial muscles and how you use them to express yourself.
  • Skin hydration: dry or dehydrated skin is more prone to wrinkles and expression lines.
  • Sun exposure: excessive unprotected sun exposure is damaging to the skin and causes premature ageing.
  • Lifestyle: diet, how much water you drink and being a smoker or non-smoker have a significant influence on the appearance of forehead lines.

How to get rid of forehead wrinkles: best ingredients

Treating forehead wrinkles requires following a strict home skincare routine using specific products containing moisturising and tightening active ingredients. The most effective ingredients against the appearance of forehead wrinkles are:

Hyaluronic acid  

Hyaluronic acid has a high capacity to retain water in the skin, making it an essential active ingredient for your skincare routine.

mesoestetic® ha densimatrix: a hyaluronic acid concentrate that maximises the benefits of hyaluronic acid to prevent skin ageing. Its unique formula hydrates, rejuvenates and replumps the skin.


Collagen is the most abundant structural protein in the body and is responsible for maintaining skin strength and firmness.

Once we reach our thirties, natural collagen levels start to decline by 1-2% each year. Therefore, incorporating an external source of collagen to prevent the formation of wrinkles is highly recommended.

age element® firming elixir nutritional supplement is formulated with hydrolysed marine collagen, which has a higher absorption rate than standard collagen. It also contains antioxidant active ingredients and hyaluronic acid. It provides great hydration, turgidity and elasticity to the skin, helping to prevent the appearance of wrinkles.


Retinol is a tried and tested anti-ageing active ingredient with multiple benefits for the skin: it reduces wrinkles and expression lines, improves skin texture, evens skin tone and improves skin firmness.

skinretin 0.3% cream contains pure retinol and bakuchiol. Its global anti-ageing action is highly effective for treating forehead lines. Interested in using the cream? Find out how to use it correctly to maximise its effectiveness.

Professional treatments

Combining home care products with cosmetic medical treatments is the best way to achieve optimal results in the shortest possible time. So, if you really want to reduce or get rid of forehead wrinkles, consider the following cosmetic and medical treatments:

Botox (botulinum toxin)

This technique reduces wrinkles by injecting botulinum toxin into the skin to relax the muscles responsible for their appearance. Botox procedures can only be performed by doctors.

Although it is the treatment of choice for dynamic wrinkles, to prevent their appearance and treat static wrinkles, there are other treatments options, such as the following ones:

Facial radiofrequency

This totally painless cosmetic treatment stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis. It involves using specific devices to apply electromagnetic waves to the skin.


This technique removes the top layers of skin to eliminate imperfections or soften forehead lines. Specific peels are available for each skin type and condition. Above certain acid concentrations, these treatments can only be performed by a doctor.

Anti-ageing treatment: age element®

age element® is a 100% customisable treatment with epigenetic anti-ageing action that targets the main manifestations and visible effects of ageing.

It leaves the skin looking more radiant, firmer and visibly younger.

Its formula includes the innovative [meso]epigen system™, the first antiaging complex with proven epigenetic action. It combats aging from its origin and corrects the visible signs.
