Botox for Forehead Wrinkles | San Diego Botox Specialist
Botox for forehead wrinkles is one of Dr. Kolstad’s most common cosmetic procedures. Many San Diego patients want Botox for the 11’s and other forehead lines. Did you know that preventative Botox is started in the 20’s? Do you know how to find the best Botox injector in San Diego? Do you know does Botox do and why we use it?
As we age our forehead muscles have performed thousands of contractions and our skin begins to thin. This causes horizontal wrinkles to form along our forehead and “11s” (vertical lines) to form between our brows. When Botox is injected into the muscles forming these wrinkles, it prevents the muscles from contracting so the skin does not wrinkle. Botox is an excellent strategy to get rid of unwanted facial wrinkles that contribute to premature aging, and make you look as refreshed and rejuvenated as you feel on the inside!
If you are considering getting Botox to treat your forehead and glabella wrinkles, it is important to select a knowledgeable and experienced Botox injector. Dr. Kolstad is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon in San Diego and he has expert knowledge of facial anatomy and extensive experience with Botox. He specializes in achieving natural results by carefully mapping his patient’s facial muscles and reducing movement in specific areas to soften forehead lines and wrinkles. Dr. Kolstad always takes a conservative approach when treating wrinkles along the forehead and brow with Botox. It is important to have some natural motion in these areas to prevent an overdone, “frozen” appearance.
