Forehead wrinkle are a part of the intrinsic aging process and are largely determined by your genetics if not than extrinsic factor like sun exposure,smoking ans sleep patern may develop wrinkles on forehead.

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

What I get from your question is that you have wrinkles on fore head and frown lines and you want to get ride of them.
As a cosmetic dermatologist we often see such cases .There are two different kinds of wrinkles which we see - 1) Dynamic wrinkles 2) Static wrinkles.
Dynamic lines one gets when one tries to express facial movements i.e frown or tries to raise his fore head.

Static lines are those which are age relates i'e. without any expressions on face when one gets lines,esp laugh lines.
What you seems to have is dynamic lines and the treatment of this is BOTOX injections.These are tiny injections which is given on t he facial muscles and it relaxes the facial muscles ,so that even if you try to produce any expression on face ,it wont manifest.Like if you try to frown after taking injections ,you won't get any lines in between eyebrows.
So,you should consult a dermatologist who is experienced enough ti give botox injection for your lines .
In static lines we give fillers (injection) .
All these injections have temporary effect (6 -8 months)..
Along with this always use a good sunscreen ,drink plenty of water and healthy diet to maintain your self.

I hope this answers your query ,if you have any further questions,kindly write back to us.
