What Causes Forehead Wrinkles By Dr. Lombardi on November 02, 2020

The effects of natural aging can appear on your face as early as your twenties. Fine lines, wrinkles, texture, and even discoloration can cause you to look older than you actually are. But what causes forehead wrinkles and other lines? Certain lifestyle factors can also impact the look and feel of your skin. One of the early signs of aging is forehead wrinkles. Forehead wrinkles are caused by a variety of factors, but there are treatment options that can help.

Causes of Forehead Wrinkles

Aging can take a toll on your face and body in many forms. Below are some of the most common causes of forehead wrinkles.

Natural Aging:

As you age, the collagen and elastin in your skin reduces as early as your mid-20s. Collagen and elastin are what keeps your skin plump and wrinkle-free. It also provides that youthful glow. However, once it starts depleting, your skin may become more textured. And fines lines will appear. A good skincare routine can help with this, but you also may need to consider cosmetic treatments that can help prevent forehead wrinkles from even starting. Botox is a great way to keep your forehead wrinkle-free.


This plays a huge role in what your skin looks and feels like. It also can be a helpful guide in understanding how your skin will age. Having a skincare regimen that addresses skin issues early is vital. In addition, focusing on preventative cosmetic treatments can help slow down the process of natural aging.

Sun Exposure:

While there are few things more relaxing than sunbathing on the beach or even in your backyard, the sun can do major damage to your skin. Sun exposure causes free radical damage in your skin. This damages the collagen and elastin in your skin that is already being depleted due to natural aging. Using at least SPF 30 every day is key in terms of protecting your skin. This is true even if you don’t go outside as sun rays can penetrate through your windows.


This is true in terms of the amount of water you are consuming and in terms of skincare. Keeping your body hydrated is vital for your skin and overall health. You also need to supplement your skin with a good moisturizer for your specific skin type. Having a good morning and evening skincare routine can make a huge difference in the way your skin looks and feels. It can also slow down the effects of natural aging and keep you looking and feeling great. If you don’t have a skincare routine, start small and gradually work into something that works for you. Your skincare routine should at least include a cleanser, vitamin C serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen.

Facial Expressions:

While this should not stop you from making whatever facial expressions you make throughout your day, certain expressions can lead to forehead wrinkles. Those who have more expressive faces tend to have deeper forehead wrinkles. Instead of worrying about controlling your facial expressions (as if you have time for anything else in your busy day!), consider Botox as a preventative treatment.

Botox is an effective and safe cosmetic treatment to address fines and wrinkles on your forehead. You can use it as a preventative treatment; however, it can also reduce the depth of fine lines and wrinkles that have already formed. The treatment is quick, and there is no downtime in terms of recovery.
