Can my Forehead Hollow Be Treated W/dermal Fillers? (photo)

Hello dear realself community! I have a forehead hollow that I hate ever since I was little. Very similar to the picture. I had restylane treatment for my lips and smile lines and I loved it. So I wonder if my forehead could be treated with dermal fillers to achieve the rihanna's look. Thank you in advance for taking a minute to answer:)

Fillers for forehead

Yes, fillers can absolutely be used to treat a forehead depression or hollow.  You could use Restylane again or there are some longer lasting products as well.  This should be a relatively simple issue to correct.

Fillers for Forehead

    Fillers can be used for forehead hollows.  This can be used temporarily.  In general, if the forehead hollow is deep or extensive, fat grafting is permanent and more cost effective.

Can fillers be used on the forehead?

In most cases, the answer is yes. Juvederm is a universal dermal filler.  It can be used pretty much anywhere you would inject a dermal filler; but there may be more permanent options for you.  It would be best to consult with a plastic surgeon to discuss the best option for you.

Forehead depressions.

The depressions you have can be filled with Radiesse to give a much smoother look. See an experienced surgeon to do this without over filling. In the future yyou may want to correct this with a custom silicone implant which is much more expensive.

The depresion in your forehead will get smoother by using fillers. However what you are seeking from the ideal  picture you posted, it seems you want forehead feminization, which you will not achieve with fillers.

forehead feminization require multiple changes.

1: elevation of eyebrow

2: smooth convexity

3; shaving frontal bossing

4: longer forehead than male forehead

These changes require Bicoronal incision, shaving the frontal bossing, possible alloderm graft.

Based on the information you provided in your question, it sounds like you would be a good candidate for fillers in your forehead hollow. Restylane may be a good option, and you may also want to consider Perlane which is a bigger molecule and generally used for deeper areas. I have provided additional information regarding fillers in the link below.
