Thinking of sprucing up your forehead?
Everything ages, even the forehead! The skin wrinkles, the muscles get thinner and even the bones get thinner. As a result, the forehead shows the effects of time.

The muscles below the forehead also age. They are refined, which gradually reduces the bulge of the forehead. Due to this, the forehead relaxes a little and the height of the forehead increases.
Young people have a well rounded forehead, while older subjects have a wide and flat forehead on which we can even see the head of the muscle: small balls located just above the eyebrow.
During aging, the bone also ages and in a very marked way. This is how in archaeology, we can quite easily date the age of the skulls that we discover.
Bone models with age and gives different curvatures. Children and young people have a convex curvature, uniform in both directions, vertical and horizontal. While 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 eyebrow arch.
The forehead tends to take an “S” shape. The same thing happens in the horizontal direction with a bulge on the side 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.
Injections of hyaluronic acid can fill a hollow forehead, to make it convex, move the eyebrow arches forward to reduce bulging eyes or optically the length of the nose.
The surgical approach
the brow lift (with scars in the hair) can increase the size of the forehead, to raise the eyebrows or to surgically remove too strong muscles (frown lines).
the temporal lifting raises the tail of the eyebrow when it cannot be done with the toxin, and smoothes the crow's feet.
The notched wires can have an effect on the tail of the eyebrow and horizontalize it
