Im 28-Year-Old male and back when i was in my teens i used to wear du rags at night pretty tight. That left lines on my forehead that dont seem to ever go away. They almost look like wrinkles.. 2-3 lines going horiztonally (rainbow shape) across forehead. Its not serious but they are a bit visible. Is there a product that may get ride of those lines? What about Microdermabras​ion machine?

Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query and photograph. The lines are appearing quiet deep. Derma abrasion can be a solution but it will take long time to show effects. Its better to go for fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers are good and can give you desired result. Please meet a dermatologist and discuss regarding this. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
