How Do You Get Rid of Frown Lines on the Forehead?

Forehead frown lines give the appearance of aging and stress. Prevent frown lines by wearing sunglasses or reading glasses, according to About.com, and avoid frowning. Some amount of frown lines occur at some point, though. If you already have frown lines, follow these steps to minimize or remove them.

  1. Apply patches or tapes

    For modest lines, start with a simpler treatment solution. About.com notes that several wrinkle-reducing or removing patches and tapes are available. These products work at night by minimizing unintentional frowning. You may see a slowdown in the formation of new lines and a reduction of existing lines.

  2. Apply a cover-up treatment

    As the patches smooth out the frown lines over time, apply makeup cover-ups to mask unattractive lines. Prevention magazine indicates that a light-reflecting primer works well to conceal small frown lines.

  3. Get a non-surgical anti-aging treatment

    Botox and Juvéderm are often used to relax facial tension and eliminate most or all frown lines. Try these products for severe frown lines. The botulinum toxin in Botox is stronger, though some patients prefer the softer impact of the hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm. Spas and facial reconstruction clinics offer these products. The effects from an injection may last from six to 12 months.
