Everything ages, even the forehead!
The skin wrinkles, the muscles become thinner and even the bones become thinner.
The muscles under the forehead also age. They become thinner, which gradually attenuates the curvature of the forehead. As a result, the forehead relaxes a little and the height of the forehead increases.
As a result, the front shows the effects of time.
Young people have a well rounded forehead, while older people have a broad, flat forehead on which you can even see the muscle head protruding: small balls located just above the eyebrow.
During aging, the bone also ages very clearly. This is how in archeology, we can quite easily date the age of the skulls we discover.
The bone is modeled with age and gives different curvatures. Children and young people have a convex curvature, uniform in both directions, vertical and horizontal. Whereas with age, the curvatures become very different. In the vertical direction, starting from the hair, we have a small bulge, then a hollow and again a bulge up to the brow bone.
The forehead tends to take an "S" shape. The same thing happens in the horizontal direction with a bulge on the lateral parts of the forehead, then a small hollow and again a bulge in the central part.
The medical approach
The muscle can be treated using injection of Botox (botulinum toxin) all over the front. All permanent expression wrinkles are thus removed and a smooth forehead is obtained.
The hyaluronic acid injections can fill a hollow forehead, to make it convex, advance the eyebrow arches to reduce bulging eyes or optically the length of the nose.
