Forehead Lines

We are not born with forehead lines, and not everyone will form forehead lines. We know that repetitive movement in the forehead will cause forehead lines to appear. There is a muscle in the forehead (the frontalis muscle) that's job is to lift the eyebrows. Every time you lift your eyebrows it is activated. It is this repetitive lifting that over time will cause horizontal lines in the forehead.

To speak with Toronto Botox® Dermatologist Dr. Nowell Solish about how he can help you achieve your goals, please call 416 964 8888


People who have a tendency to raise their eyebrows will over time develop these lines. At first they will only appear later in the day when the muscle has been over used, but over time they will become permanent. Continual movement will cause them to deepen.

There is a treatment for these lines; it is Botulinum A. Commonly referred to as Botox® or Dysport®. This treatment will relax the muscle that is causing these lines. It will result in softening of the forehead lines as well as help to prevent them from forming or worsening.
