How are Forehead Lines treated?

Our Forehead Lines treatment tackles signs of ageing before they appear using anti-wrinkle injections to deliver line-free, reinvigorated skin.

We use the highest-grade anti-wrinkle injections to target the relevant areas with precision, providing a healthy and refreshed look that will slow the development and reduce the severity of wrinkles. By relaxing the muscles in the face, you will find that wrinkles will fade over time, giving you a smooth appearance that will make you feel comfortable in your own skin.

With our Forehead Lines treatment, you will appear more approachable and rested with a naturalistic look that encourages healthier and smoother skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anti-wrinkle injections are an increasingly popular treatment for tackling the signs of ageing non-surgically. They are able to relax facial muscles and proactively prevent wrinkles from forming.

Anti-wrinkle injections work by using a naturally purified protein to relax muscles in the face and block certain nerve signals to the muscles. By blocking the nerve signals, the hyperactive muscles that normally contract or elevate will freeze, allowing for smoother skin with reduced wrinkles.

Using anti-wrinkle injections for this treatment allows us to relax the frontalis muscle, which causes wrinkles to appear in the forehead whenever we raise our eyebrows. Relaxing this muscle will reduce wrinkles and lead to smoother skin, while also working to prevent them for the future. You will find the results to be completely natural and undetectable as opposed to ‘frozen’, giving you a more youthful look.



Due to the treatment being non-surgical in nature, there is little to no pain involved in anti-wrinkle injections. Of course, everyone has a different pain threshold, but when performed by our expert practitioners the procedure is described as a slight pinch to the skin. The needles used for this treatment are extremely thin to allow for minimal discomfort and improved accuracy for our practitioners.

Different areas of the face will have more nerve endings, meaning these areas can be more sensitive than others. We recommend the use of a topical anaesthetic to soothe the area and remove any discomfort. Our clinically trained practitioners are trained regularly on the latest techniques to ensure that treatments are performed with your comfort and safety as a priority.



Due to the nature of injectable treatments, there is a possibility of some minor side effects. Side effects from Botox injections commonly keep to the site of the injection and often only take a few days to settle. The most common side effects include: 

  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Itching
  • Bruising
  • Sensitivity
  • Muscle weakness

Any potential side effects will be discussed further at the pre-treatment consultation with a member of the VIVA team.  Your practitioner will discuss relevant medical history to provide an informed recommendation for your course of treatment. 

Our medical team is led by Dr Rupert, who is considered one of the most experienced injectors in the UK. Having treated over one million patients in over ten years of opening our doors at VIVA, you can have peace of mind that your safety is our priority.



Initial results will be visible as soon as you leave the clinic, however, it will take around two weeks for the anti-wrinkle injections to finalise and provide the full result. The two-week wait also allows for any light bruising or swelling from the treatment to reduce, revealing your final look. 



The Botulinum toxin (BOTOX) anti-wrinkle injectables that we use at our clinics usually last around 3 to 4 months, with longevity varying naturally from patient to patient. We recommend a follow-up appointment around 4 to 6 months after your initial treatment to assess results and provide maintenance. Follow-up appointments will help us to keep your skin looking healthy and rejuvenated for as long as possible.

The exact length might change based on the volume of anti-wrinkle injectables used, aftercare, and the precise areas being treated. Our aestheticians will be happy to discuss specifics at your initial consultation.



Injectables can usually last independently for months, but you can increase the longevity of your anti-wrinkle results and prevent wrinkles in a few ways. To ensure that you get the most from your anti-wrinkle treatment, we recommend a combination of the following.

  • Maintaining a healthy skincare routine, minimising exposure to UV radiation.
  • Eating a balanced diet and staying hydrated.
  • Avoiding stress, as this will accelerate the signs of ageing.
  • Follow the recommended aftercare provided by our practitioners.
  • Regular follow-up treatments.

We only use the most effective and safest FDA-approved products at VIVA Skin Clinics. Before any treatment we require a full medical consultation to understand your suitability. We would never recommend a treatment for you if we deemed it to be unsafe or dangerous for your unique circumstance.

At VIVA, we only hire doctors and nurses with a strong background in the NHS, with a minimum of three years in aesthetics. Our MD, Dr Rupert Critchley, is involved in the training of other medical practitioners for Allergan, the company behind Juvéderm and Botox. 

You can be sure that you will be in the best hands; safety is our primary concern, and we work to ensure that you are safe and comfortable, before, during and after your treatment.



This treatment is relatively popular, as horizontal forehead lines can be seen in all ages due to gravity, genetics, or lifestyle choices, meaning this treatment is suitable for every patient who is looking to reduce the depth and severity of forehead lines. It also a great preventative treatment.

This treatment is tailored to every patient and can be combined with the anti-wrinkle injections in the frown area to create a natural and unopposed effect, regaining one’s youth and preventing future lines from developing. 



With many different brands cluttering the market, and our Clients as our top priority, we ensure to use only the safest, more premium products. This is why we at VIVA Skin Clinics are proud to use the FDA-approved Botulinum toxin by Allergan, one of the safest and most renowned brands on the market.
