The forehead occupies the upper third of the face, this element captures the light by beautifying the look and the face.
We do not always have a perfect forehead. Aesthetic imperfections in the forehead may be genetic (young subject) or age-related (elderly).
A youthful forehead is slightly curved,, while older subjects have a broad, flat forehead.
With age the muscles of the forehead are refined, their contraction and mucles movement show horizontal wrinkles, the skin relaxes and falls thus, the height of the forehead increases and eyebrows are lowered.
Ageing of the frontal bone changes the contours of the forehead. In the vertical direction a small bulge isformed, then a hollow, the front tends to take a shape in "S". In the horizontal direction, it is formed a rolled on the lateral parts, then a small hollow, and again a convex in central part. This is the skeletonization of the forehead.
Anomalies can occur to the forehead
Bony ridge near the eyebrows
This bony ridge can give a very masculine appearance to the face.
Injecting into the upper zone of the forehead creates roundness.
Injecting into the central zone of the forehead creates roundness.
Injecting hyaluronic acid into this concave zone must create roundness and volume.
Anatomical differences between male and female forehead
The masculine forehead, seen in profile, follows an oblique line from the edge of the scalp to the eyebrows, with a typical bony projection at the eyebrow
The female forehead, seen in profile, is more vertical and then convex, without any projection at the eyebrow. The eyebrow is higher and the distance between the eyebrow and hairline is about 5 cm.
A firm and volumizing hyaluronic acid is used to answer the following indications:
- Plump up a forehead and give it the curvature of youth.
- Feminize-masculinize a front.
- Treat any hollows and bumps in the forehead.
The injection is done with the fine cannula to reduce the pain and to be placed precisely.
If the forehead is very hollow, or if a lot more volume is needed to gain a convex shape, I use a relatively thick RestyLane type hyaluronic acid. If the forehead is less hollow, or just a bit flat, I prefer to use a suppler type of hyaluronic acid like Emervel classic.
After the injection of hyaluronic acid, there may be small irregularities for a week and a slight edema that can last one or two days, so it is better to predict a social exclusion of twelve hours.
