Clinic Eleven Appearance and Skin Cancer Medicine on Forehead Wrinkles
When we raise our eyebrows, naturally we all have fine horizontal lines across our forehead. These forehead lines are usually only noticeable during facial expression, e.g. when you are surprised. However, over time these forehead lines can become more prominent and turn into wrinkles due to repeated muscle action. They may also become 'static', which means you can see them even when your face is relaxed.
People have different types of forehead lines. You mostly see ‘blinds’, or multiple horizontal wrinkles that stretch across the forehead.
These can be seen when you raise your brows, as the skin bunches together and creates horizontal creases.
The number of wrinkles will vary from person to person, with some people only having a ‘single’ line and others having ‘radiating’ lines that extend out from the brow line. Have a look at some examples of what we are talking about below:
