Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Heavy Forehead with Deep Furrows, Wrinkles and Brow Ptosis

Q. I have some pretty severe forehead lines. Would Botox even help? Even when my forehead is completely relaxed they are so obvious and noticeable. All the pictures below are my forehead in its relaxed state except for the one where I am shown raising my eyebrows. You can see how deep the lines are in all of them They started to really show I’d say around my mid 20’s. I am 33 now and they just get worse each year. Just curious if botox would even be able to do anything for it or if not something else?

A. Thanks for including photos. They are helpful and show the deeper furrows you have statically and dynamically of your forehead. They also show the ptosis (lowering, sagging) of your forehead onto your  nose, brows and eyelids. 

Botox will help relaxing the muscles that pulls your forehead down. Gravity and skin laxity also cause these wrinkles and will not be helped by Botox. For skin laxity, wrinkles and sagging concerns, consider:

1. fillers

2. Obagi, ZO Skin Health tightening with peels and laser

3. Silhouette InstaLift, minimally invasive skin suspension

4. Brow / Forehead Lift

Please consider consultation with a skilled, experienced and well rounded, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to review this wide range of options for your needs. I wish you the best!
