What Causes Forehead Wrinkles
Before discussing the advantages of forehead Botox injections, we will educate you on the anatomy of your forehead muscles and how they may significantly contribute to forehead lines and wrinkles.
CONTRACTING YOUR FRONTALIS CAN CAUSE FOREHEAD LINES
When we raise our eyebrows, the frontalis muscle in our forehead tightens, causing forehead wrinkles. When the frontalis muscle contracts, it forces the skin on the forehead upward and produces distinct forehead lines. Without preventative treatment, these forehead lines might develop into wrinkles as we age.
CONTRACTING YOUR GLABELLA CAN CAUSE 11 LINES
The glabella lines, often known as the 11s, are the parallel vertical lines that run between the eyebrows and up the middle of the forehead. 11 lines develop by pulling the eyebrows’ core regions lower and inward. There is a group of facial muscles that work together dynamically to form these vertical lines between your eyes. There is the muscle above the eyebrow, the corrugator supercilii. A triangular muscle between your eyes is the procerus and a muscle close to your inner eyebrow located near the eye, the depressor supercilii.

Potential Risks to Forehead Botox Injections
Learn about the rare risks that can happen with forehead injections below:
Drooping Eyelids (Ptosis)
Ptosis Can Be a Risk From Forehead Botox Injections
Forehead Botox can temporarily droop the eyelid if it spreads to the adjacent eyelid muscles.2 On the very unlikely occasion that a patient develops ptosis after receiving Botox, our medical spa is equipped with a corrective treatment in place.
In the event that this uncommon consequence materializes, we arrange a second consultation for more focused injections to strengthen the muscles that control the eyelids. They are injected at particular locations along the lash line and on the eyelid. α-adrenergic eye drops like Upneeq can help elevate the eyelid even further.3
Depending on how much Botox has penetrated the muscle, this condition might last anywhere from four to eight weeks before clearing up.

Successful Forehead Wrinkle Treatments Start With Professionally Trained Injectors
How Our Injectors Avoid Areas That Can Cause Ptosis
Our skilled team of injectors treats forehead Botox procedures with accuracy and consideration. We follow strict safety protocols, making sure we never inject more than a finger’s width above the eyebrow, creating a safe zone to avoid side effects.
Our injectors use a method that mimics the directional flow of the muscles, particularly around the glabella. Where the muscles naturally diverge from sensitive regions. This allows for more superficial injections as we travel outward and deeper injections where it’s safest.
This meticulous procedure reduces the possibility of damaging the levator muscle, which raises the eyelid and may cause ptosis. Our injectors are experienced and trained on the proper injection points for ptosis not to occur in our patients.
