Reduce forehead wrinkles non-surgically – Restore your natural, youthful look
Reduce forehead wrinkles non-surgically – Restore your natural, youthful look
There are two main types of forehead wrinkles: fine lines and deep furrows. Fine lines are caused by ultraviolet light and intrinsic aging, while deep furrows by repeated muscle movements and dermal elastosis.
At VL Aesthetics, we can reduce your forehead wrinkles with the leading cosmetic injectables (well-known brands include Botox® and TEOSYAL️® – which type of injectable is used depends on your suitability for that injectable).
If you would like to improve the appearance of forehead wrinkles or any other facial feature, please book a Free Consultation with one of our expert injectors who will talk you through what is involved and show you how you can achieve natural-looking results you’ll be more than happy with.

There are many different types of cosmetic injectables, and many different brands that use these injectables. For example, Botox® is a trademarked name for a treatment that uses botulinum toxin, and TEOSYAL️® is a trademarked name for a treatment that uses hyaluronic acid. At VL Aesthetics, we only use the top brands for our cosmetic injections.
To activate muscles, motor neurons release a neurotransmitter (acetylcholine) into the neuromuscular junction. Botulinum toxin inhibits this release – it breaks down the communication between the motor neurons and the muscle cells. This has the effect of relaxing the muscles, and when applied to specific facial areas, will improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body. It is a sugar-based compound that acts as a powerful humectant - it can carry up to 1000 times its weight in water, giving skin a young and supple appearance. As you get older, your body makes less hyaluronic acid, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. By filling in your fine lines and wrinkles with hyaluronic acid, we can restore a youthful look.

We tailor make our treatments to suit your aims, objectives, and personal characteristics. Because of this very personal approach, pricing varies from person to person and can only be provided at your Free Consultation.
We are however, very competitively priced in Cumbria, and our treatments come with a convenient payment plan option that allows you to pay in manageable monthly instalments.
Cosmetic injections are very safe if administered correctly by a medical professional – Dr. Abs practises and teaches aesthetics internationally and is highly qualified to carry out the injections.
However, although the treatments are very safe, they may not be suitable for people with certain medical conditions or for pregnant / breastfeeding women.
We carry out a full medical assessment before starting your treatment, so if you are not a suitable candidate, we will find out before your treatment begins.
The injections themselves are relatively painless. However, the most common side effects are tenderness and mild bruising around the injected areas.
Should you have any concerns after your treatment, Dr. Abs will be happy to conduct a telephone consultation with you.
The most common minor side effects are tenderness and mild bruising around the injected areas.
Very rarely some patients may experience headaches, drooping eyelids, or muscle weakness. These reactions usually disappear after 72 hours.
In general, it takes 7-10 days for the treatment to take full effect.
Treatments that use botulinum toxin (e.g. Botox®) usually last 3-6 months, while treatments that use hyaluronic acid (e.g. Juvederm®) usually last 6-9 months.
How long the results last for depends on the number of previous treatments, the treatment areas, and your individual characteristics.
Botulinum toxin (e.g. Botox®) and hyaluronic acid (e.g. Juvederm®) can treat many different facial areas. Which type of injectable is used depends on which facial feature you would like to enhance and on your suitability for that injectable. At your Free Consultation we will determine which treatment best suits your aims, objectives, and personal characteristics.
Please examine the image below for the possible treatment areas:
There is no specific age at which you should start the treatments – All people age differently and feel differently about how they look. In general, we find that people start the treatments for the following reasons:
20s – To prevent wrinkles and fine lines from occurring.
30s – To prolong the youthful look as wrinkles and fine lines start to appear.
40s – To tackle wrinkles and fine lines before they are deeply imprinted.
50+ – To improve the appearance of deeper wrinkles and fine lines.
Before your treatment begins, our expert injector will discuss your aims and objectives, explain the various therapeutic options, and will determine if you are a suitable candidate.
If cosmetic injectables are right for you, then Dr. Abs will begin by cleansing your face and marking out the treatment areas.
A fine needle is used to deliver the chosen solution directly into the target areas, avoiding facial veins to prevent bruising.
Depending on which areas are being treated, the session can last between 30-60 minutes. The treatment is done on a walk-in walk-out basis with no time required for recovery.
In the first 24 hours post-procedure, please try to adhere to the following guidelines:
