Wrinkle free, flat, smooth forehead wanted! Options and expert opinions on how to resolve washboard forehead? (Photos)

I am considering a forehead reduction, but I understand that alone won't resolve the wrinkling. Will a brow lift help? It wrinkles when brows are raised AND when forehead moves down/forward. Help!

Thank you for your question and photos.  Botox (or other wrinkle relaxers such as Dysport or Xeomin) is the best treatment to soften forehead lines.  A forehead reduction or hairline lowering will lower your hairline and reduce the size of your forehead but will not really soften the forehead lines as they are created by the underlying muscle movement.  This muscle movement is not affected by the hairline lowering/forehead reduction procedure.  Together (Botox with a hairline lowering procedure), the results will give a very nice, balanced result.   I hope this helps!

The wrinkles on your forehead are your normal muscles. You can block this with Botox as many people do who don't want them.
