Wrinkles on the forehead: why they happen and how to eliminate


The wrinkles of the forehead can begin to appear around the age of 30, especially in people who, throughout life, exposed themselves a lot to the sun without protection, lived in places with pollution or neglected in food.

Despite this, there are several ways to attenuate these wrinkles, through feeding, the use of appropriate cosmetics, massages, aesthetic treatments or even disguise them with makeup.

What products to use

The products that must be used to combat wrinkles must contain hyaluronic acid, resveratrol, retinol, vitamin C and/or Vitamin E, which have anti-oxidant action and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin.

The ideal is to clean the face and apply a serum before the daily cream, since this product has greater power to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin in addition to enhancing the absorption of the cream. In addition, it is important to complement this treatment with an eye cream, which is more adapted to use in the eye region, which has a thinner and more sensitive skin.

It is also important to apply sun protection daily, as sun exposure accelerates skin aging.

What Food Should Be

Some examples of foods that can help prevent the parity of wrinkles on the skin are orange, lemon, kiwi, tangerine among other citrus fruits, because they contain vitamin C, which contributes to the production of collagen, which helps maintain the firmness and filling of the skin, and green tea, red fruits, pineapples and strawberries, which contain anti-oxidants, important to prevent premature aging.

Foods rich in magnesium, selenium and zinc also contribute to firmer skin, because they protect cells against aggression by free radicals, prevent tissue sagging and favor cell renewal. Examples of foods with these minerals are nuts, corn, carrots, whole grains, pará chestnut, red meat, algae and oysters, for example.

Aesthetic treatments

The treatments that can be performed in aesthetic clinics, to reduce wrinkles, are:

  • Radiofrequency: is a procedure that uses a small equipment that slides through the face generating heat to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin and improve its tone;
  • Carboxytherapy: is done with the application of small injections containing CO2, to stimulate oxygenation and the elimination of toxins through the skin, making it more rejuvenated and firm;
  • Chemical peeling: it is made with the application of acids on the face, which remove the most superficial and medium layer of the skin, stimulating the production of a new firm and resistant layer;
  • Mesolift or Mesotherapy: performed through multiple microinjections of the skin with rejuvenating substances, such as vitamins A, E, C, B or K and hyaluronic acid, which hydrate and regenerate the skin;
  • Laser or pulsed light: These are procedures made by a device that emit light and heat, improving the texture of the skin and removing wrinkles;
  • Microneedling: for the stimulation of collagen production, a small device is used full of microneedle that slides down the face, making small holes, so that the body itself, when treating the regeneration of the skin, is used a new layer firmer.
  • Iontophoresis: It consists of the application of a small plaque directly on the wrinkle that is desired to eliminate containing substances such as hyaluronic acid, hexamine or alkaline phosphatase, for example, to promote the deeper penetration of these substances, increasing the production of new collagen cells that support the skin, eliminating the wrinkle being treated;
  • Russian current: These are small electrodes placed on the face that lead to increased blood circulation and muscle tone, fighting sagging and wrinkles.

These aesthetic treatments can begin to be performed from the appearance of the first wrinkles, around 30 – 35 years of age.
