A fresh look without forehead wrinkles
Forehead wrinkles are horizontal lines on the forehead that are especially visible when the eyebrows are raised. Although heredity and age are natural causes over which you have little control, unhealthy lifestyle factors such as smoking, stress and a poor diet can contribute to wrinkle formation.
Exposure to sunlight without protection is also a major cause. Forehead wrinkles are a clear sign of aging and can cause a tired appearance, especially since it covers a large area of the face and is centrally located. This can make you look visually older and more tired than you are.
Fortunately, treatment of forehead wrinkles with Botulinum Toxin at Oran Aesthetics offers a solution to this problem, so you don’t have to face this unwanted appearance on a daily basis.

This relaxes the muscles and reduces or removes wrinkles, making the forehead look smoother and younger. It is a quick and painless treatment that is often combined with a frown line treatment for a natural result. You can resume your normal activities almost immediately after treatment.

After treatment, it is advised not to lie down or sleep for 4 hours, do not exercise for the first two days and do not massage the treated area. For the first week after treatment, it is recommended not to visit a sauna or tanning bed. Finally, facial treatments such as chemical peels and lasers are not recommended for the first two weeks.
Botulinum toxin falls under the drug law and was extensively tested for effectiveness and side effects before it was allowed on the market by the government. It is therefore safe to use, provided the treatment is performed by a licensed physician (with BIG registration) who specializes in the field and is knowledgeable about the product.
As with any medical treatment, side effects may occur, but are usually mild and short-lived. The most common side effects are mild redness, swelling and bruising at the injection site. In rare cases, temporary ptosis (drooping eyelid) may occur. Choosing an experienced and well-trained doctor minimizes the risks.
Botox is a suitable treatment for people who are bothered by their forehead wrinkles and are looking for a quick and effective solution. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have muscle diseases or are taking certain medications, it is advisable to consult your doctor before undergoing treatment.
